Full description
Start with pickup from Moscow and travel by minibus to one of the largest dog kennels in Russia, located well outside the city. Upon arrival, meet the owner of the kennel who will welcome you with a cup of tea. Learn about the owner's 10 years of experience and the excellent care given to all dogs. Discover more about the breeds who live at the kennel, and their place in Russian history and local culture. Then, meet over 120 beautiful huskies, and take plenty of photos with them. Discover the affection huskies have for humans, a famous trait of the breed. Then, choose your companion for the day, and set off on your hike.  Follow a 5-kilometer trail through the woods with your dog and a professional kayur (dog-sled chief) who will be your guide. Discover scenic sections of the Moskva River with the huskies leading the way. Choose the option to embark on an additional kayaking excursion at the end of the hike. Receive full instruction on how to use your kayak and paddle down the Moskva River and enjoy views of nature from the water.  At the end of either option, meet the owner back at the kennel and enjoy a delicious traditional lunch comprised of oladushki (Russian pancakes) and herbal tea. After lunch, bid farewell and be transferred back to your accommodation in Moscow.
