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!

We loved this so much we paid for guests we had from the UK to do it when they came. The dogs are so loving and want to be cuddled, the noise they make is amazing and they love to run ! We had a guide to assist on our sled which I found essential I didn't fancy losing the... More

We visited here today, it was an informative talk about the dogs and the breeds and what they do with the sledding etc but best of all you get an hour of fussing and playing in among these beautiful animals. Be prepared to get muddy and hairy and kisses! Best part of my trip so far, thanks :0)

My wife and I came across this last minute and enjoyed the experience. We had mistakenly assumed we were going to meet some puppies but the youngest they had was at least 6 months old so while still playful, not quite the puppy experience we had expected. However the tour was good, the dogs were great, and it was very... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to share you experience! We are pleased to read that you enjoyed your experience with our wonderful sled dogs! Yes, it is not a puppy tour since we don't always have puppies! Maintaining an ethical kennel like ours means we do not breed every summer - all breeding is very controlled as... More

My husband and I recently visited during our trip to Banff! We had a great time visiting with the dogs! The staff were very knowledgeable and friendly and it was obvious that they take great care of their animals. We had a great time, but felt it was a little bit pricey.

The summer kennel tour was the absolute highlight of our trip. We were initially disappointed to be visiting during a time when sled tours were not available, but being able to hang out with and play with the dogs during their time off was incredible. The dogs are great - well behaved and affectionate.
