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 a morning dog sled trip during the early spring (it was a snowy day). Everyone was very kind and welcoming. Jessie, our musher, was incredible and you can tell that he is really attentive to the health and wellness of his dogs. They also had a professional photographer there which was a pleasant surprise since we didn’t have to fumble with our phones and could focus on being present in the experience. I highly recommend this activity and we hope to return again!

This was so amazing! Our two boys (12 and 10) both said this was the BEST thing we did on our trip. They loved the dogs, the sledding, the snow, and the guides. Everything was great. I loved it all too - and especially that they had a photographer there taking photos of our family having fun on this adventure. I got to take the day off from taking photos and actually be IN them. Hot chocolate and a warm fire to warm up when we got back (it snowed the whole time we were there) was amazing. Don't miss this experience!
