Muddy Paw Sled Dog Kennel is the premier dog sled touring operator in New England. We offer year round dog sledding adventures that range from 2 - 50 miles (including overnights). All of our dog sledding experiences are designed to be hands on to the comfort level of the guests. Participants ages 2 and up are given the opportunity to meet and greet our rescue and second chance sled dogs, help harness and hitch their team and even help drive the sled (at musher discretion for guests and dog safety of course)! As always, the proceeds generated from our kennel based tours go directly to covering the expenses involved in taking in these incredible canine athletes and providing them with a home and job for life.

For summer dogsledding, you have to watch the weather carefully. We were right on the border of being able to go out, but the temperature stayed just below the max of 70 for our morning visit. Our family of five was introduced to the mushers, Wes and Bree, and we helped hitch the dogs for our ride. The family had... More

We planned our trip as a surprise for our daughter's 13th birthday. She has been obsessed with sled dogs as far back as 3 years old and we were so thrilled to find Muddy Paws. Emma was great at responding quickly to our e-mail questions and concerns, and was so happy to be able to be part of the surprise.... More

I took my wife and two children to muddy paw for a march rolling dogsled ride. It was awesome! Wes showed us around as we met most of their 121 sled dogs. The dogs were surprisingly friendly. Wes hitched up 12 of the dogs to a rolling sleep and off we went on our sleigh ride. When we got back... More

What a unique and fun experience! There was no snow on the trails in NH last week when we went for our dog sled ride, so instead of a sled, the dogs pulled us in these awesome rolling all-terrain vehicles made especially for the trails with no snow. It was a comfortable and smooth ride, and our guides Wes and... More

A great experience for the family. We loved it! Thanks to Wes and the whole Muddy Paws team who were fantastically attentive, genuine, informative and fun. The dogs were pretty fantastic too! We highly recommend this family adventure...just be prepared to get a little messy, but that's part of the fun!

Huge thank you to our guide and musher, Wes! You made my first experience riding behind a team of sled dogs the best part of my vacation weekend! The dogs were so sweet and friendly. I'm going to come back in the fall! So much fun I immediately wanted to do it again!

I cannot thank Wes enough for such a fabulous experience. His knowledge about the dogs was great. His enthusiasm contagious. This would be great for the young and old. Will be going back in the Fall for another ride!
