When we arrived, we were greeted warmly by all the pups and the staff! We have been on other dogsledding adventures and this was superb. If you like a hands on experience, this is the one for you. The dogs are friendly and the philosophy of this business ranks high on my list of good ethics. Positive Energy Outdoors treats their dogs well and with kindness.

I had a fantastic dog sledding adventure! I was a solo rider and thoroughly enjoyed it. HIGHLY recommend this company. The staff, dogs, and scenery were simply amazing. Blake was so kind and knowledgeable - really appreciated riding in the sled with him. You will not regret this experience!

We just finished our group dog sledding trip with our 4 kids ages 5-14 and it was amazing. Blake did a great job of explaining safety rules and telling us a lot of interesting facts and details about the dogs and racing. You can tell they value the safety and well being of their dogs and the kennel area was well kept and clean. My children got to "help" and they all enjoyed the sledding on their half mile training loop. They do a nice job of explaining what you need for the weather. It was probably 25 degrees and no wind and you do need the snowpants, boots, winter gear as they recommend. It was about a 2 hour process from start to finish, learning about the dogs, harnessing them to the sled, and all taking turns with 2-3 on the sled at a time with a guide. Thank you for sharing your beautiful dogs with us! Both my husband and I felt this was a great experience and well worth it!

We had a party of 9 people and went dogsledding! Blake and Steph were very knowledgeable and were so good with the kids! We enjoyed learning about the dogs history and helping get them ready to go out. We also enjoyed the horse drawn wagon ride (as there wasn't enough snow for the sleigh). What a fun experience!
