Owner description: Muddy Paw Sled Dog Kennel is the premier dog sled touring operator in New England. We offer year round dog sledding adventures that range from 2 - 50 miles (including overnights). All of our dog sledding experiences are designed to be hands on to the comfort level of the guests. Participants ages 2 and up are given the opportunity to meet and greet our rescue and second chance sled dogs, help harness and hitch their team and even help drive the sled (at musher discretion for guests and dog safety of course)! As always, the proceeds generated from our kennel based tours go directly to covering the expenses involved in taking in these incredible canine athletes and providing them with a home and job for life.

Today, my fiancé and I, did the fall extended tour at Muddy Paws. It was EXCELLENT. We were over the moon excited to meet the dogs, learn their personalities, and then go for a ride. Our musher was very informative and made the ride enjoyable. He even let us be the driver!! It was well worth spending a couple hours... More

My wife and I, from New Brunswick Canada, were visiting the white mountains and looking to fill in a few hours. We came across an ad in a tourist magazine for Muddy Paw. Being the dog lovers we are we made arrangements for a rolling dog sled ride. You haven't lived until you have been greeted by more than 100... More

Myself and the Four-Leggers thank you for your fantastic review of your Rolling Dog Sled experience. We certainly agree that it is hard to have a bad day with so many furry friends who just want to give you hugs & kisses and receive some belly-rubs in return. We hope that you do return for another visit sometime, maybe on... More

My friend and I went on a dog sled ride in autumn. It was so beautiful! The musher AJ was great. She explained everything in detail and was warm and friendly. Being a dog lover, I was a bit worried about how the dogs are treated, I had never been to a place like this. All the dogs were very... More

The whole experience was so interesting and if you love animals, you will see how much Muddy Paws loves and TRULY cares for theirs. Its great for the whole family but also for the "big kids" in life.

You will not regret visiting this wonderful kennel and meeting all the beautiful dogs - lots of kisses, hugs & belly rubbing. We brought our grandsons (13 & 11) and the staff was so good with them. Some people asked how we could go there because the dogs are made to do such hard work - WRONG! When they bring... More

Myself and the Four-Leggers thank you for the great review. Our dogs certainly love getting hugs & belly rubs as well as the excuse to run! It still amazes us how loud the kennel gets when the dogs say "Pick Me" for getting hooked up to the sled. We are glad you and your grandsons enjoyed your Rolling Sled Dog... More

What a fantastic morning on our cart ride through the colorful NH mountain side. This was not just a sled ride. We got to play with a litter of 8 week old puppies, learn about some of the dogs there as well as what they do at Muddy Paw. The dog's stories were all different from rescues from high kill... More

When we booked this tour, originally it was about the sled ride. Once there, it was about something else for us, the love of all those dogs... So many abandoned dogs are sheltered there. As soon as you enter and the dogs see you, they all want to give and receive love. Lots of hugs, slobbery kisses and muddy paws... More
