Had a great morning visiting the sled dogs in the kennels. The girls were out on free run and gave us lots of love. Jereme was really informative and explained all about food plans and caring for the dogs. Then we went into the boys area and got more kisses and cuddles. The dogs are very well cared for and...

If you are in need of cuddles and kisses, don't miss out on this place. Thoroughly delightful few hours if you are a dog lover or think you might be. The only downside is if they have puppies who are still too young to be held by visitors. It's hard to resist. Truly knowledgeable guides. Great owners. Informative and committed.... More

We spent two hours playing and learning about sled dogs. Owner was very knowledgeable, and during conversation told us the names of each dog and stories about their personality. A family run, beautifully clean operation with happy,healthy dogs.

We did the 4 hour sled ride last December and it was an incredible experience. Super friendly and knowledgable staff who are clearly very passionate about the work they do and the dogs they take care of, the dogs were so beautiful and friendly. If you have the opportunity to go one of these tours - do it!

A great half day with so many loving sled dogs. Plenty of information about the types of breeds and the feeding to go with it as well. Highly recommend for any family looking to do something different while in Canmore

Great experience. Went on a very snowy day in March!! You are well taken care of and we both had an opportunity to drive the sled. Drinks and cookies after around the fire while waiting for the ride back. Chance to pet the dogs which they love!!

It was really interesting to learn all about the sled dogs and to pet them and hang out. The owners are really great people who clearly love what they do. We'll come back in the winter to definitely do sledding!
