About Durango Dog Ranch
The Durango Dog Ranch is a mushing adventure company offering year-round dog sledding experiences. In summer, visit the ranch, tour our working dog sled kennel, and take an overland adventure in the mountains with the sled dogs via cart or scooter depending on ability.Summer visits take about an hour and are informative and fun.They are at our ranch in Hesperus, 15 west of Durango and run approx. $75 per person.Available 6/1-10/1. In winter, we have two hour traditional dog sledding trips at our purgatory resort kennel location or in the National Forest throughout the San Juan Mountains.Winter tours are on a snow and we go where the best trails are. It is fun and adventure for the whole family on a dogsled on snowy trails. Sleds fit two adults or 375 pounds comfortably(lap children can be added for a small fee).These adventures are a per sled price of $325 and are available as soon as trails are snowcovered usually 12/1-4/1.

We did the winter mushing tour and it was amazing! We got to learn all the dogs names and help harness them. They were so excited to go! The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, the scenery was beautiful, and the dogs were great. I would highly recommend this adventure!

We did the winter mushing tour and it was terrific! We got to meet the dog teams, help harness them, and learn to drive the sleds. Willow and Gregg were great instructors and the dogs were fantastic athletes. It gave us insight into some of our own husky pup’s behavior too!
