Having visited Alaska annually for the last 9 years, a highlight (and must-do) with every trip is our annual trek out to Katmai National Park & Preserve. To say that I'm a "bear fanatic" would probably be a bit of an understatement. If you even...More

Great question! I would contact Homer Hounds by phone at (907) 235-7389 or through their website and see if they could watch your Labradoodle while you're out with us. Thanks, Dave
