Situated between Scarborough and Whitby in the North York Moors National Park, Pesky Husky is a unique experience for any visitor. A family-run business with over 30 years of experience of the breed, Pesky Husky was set up in 2007, when our aims were to provide a centre where people could learn about the amazing qualities of the oldest breed on the planet, and how they are simply like no other dog. We also aim to provide a loving home for our dogs throughout their whole lives (having rescued about a third of our 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, we 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 our purpose built trekking course, with its two exciting down-hills. For those who want a more relaxed session we can tailor your session 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! We also offer combined sessions of Trekking and hiking for the complete Husky experience.These activities all include a full kennel visit, instruction, and equipment, and are available all year round, 7 days a week. We also do various other activities- from children’s parties to kennel visits, meaning there really is something for everybody! Prices start at £15 and we can provide gift vouchers as well as bookings. Please ring for availability and details.

At least the weather was good. The rest of the day consisted of us being told off by a very ittitating and rude woman, not being able to do what we paid for and not receiving a refund for what we weren’t able to do

I don't believe this is a genuine review there is absolutely no detail to it, the fact that it says " the rest of the day" when that length of time is not appropriate , makes it very suspicious

Deb was very friendly and gives each guest an introduction to all of her huskies during the "kennel visit" portion of the visit. She also explains what goes into taking care of the dogs, and how labor-intensive it can be. Not surprisingly, most of her...More

Words fail me on this one, not even worth repying to, it takes all sorts, trouble is some people just try to be a bit too clever given a key board to tap away on !!

We spent a wonderful few hours with Debbie and her huskies and took a hike on her farm with two special dogs. We will definitely return as soon as possible.
