We offer a Bring Your Own Dog for the northern breed dog owner to experience the joy of mushing. The sled dogs are very breed specific and we must limit the BYOD to the following northern breeds only:
Your northern breed dog must be dog and people friendly. The dog must get along with every dog it meets. Please do not consider this adventure if your dog has any aggressive issues towards dogs or humans. This adventure is also not appropriate for you and your dog if we are not able to touch, put a harness and collar on your dog, and hook the dog up on the line without the dog being uncomfortable or concerned.
View thevideos and photos for more information. At the time of your tour our guides will evaluate you and your BYOD to determine if we will have a no sled tour with the UTV or allow your BYOD to snow sled. It is very challenging for first time BYOD's and humans to snow sled. Both are cautious and it is hard for the Humans to pay attention and watch their precious Dog. Using the UTV allows you to see how the BYOD will do and have experience for a snow sled in the future.
