Days out in Yorkshire: Pesky Husky Training, Scarborough

Have your say

Situated between Scarborough and Whitby in the North York Moors National Park, Pesky Husky is a unique experience for any visitor and it’s one you won’t easily forget.

A family-run business with over 30 years of experience of the breed, Pesky Husky was set up in 2007. Their aims were to provide a centre where people could learn about the amazing qualities of the oldest breed of dog on the planet, and show how they are unlike any other dog.

They also aim to provide a loving home for dogs throughout their whole lives (having rescued about a third of their pack from unsuitable homes), by giving them the opportunity to do what Huskies are supposed to do - run.

With 30 sled dogs for you to meet, organisers provide a range of exciting experiences, including husky trekking; a sport which gives you the opportunity to drive your own team of dogs on a two wheeled scooter around their purpose-built trekking course, with its two exciting down-hill sections. For those who want a more relaxed session they can tailor it to suit your individual abilities.

Pesky Husky also offers husky hiking all year round - a walk with the dogs through the open countryside, using specialist belts and equipment specifically designed for sled dogs.

A fun and unique activity, this is perfect for families with children, walking groups, or anyone who wants to meet and spend some quality time with these amazing animals.

Activities all include a full kennel visit, instruction, and equipment and are available all year round, seven days a week. They also do various other activities, from children’s parties to kennel visits, meaning there really is something for everybody.
