Dog Sledding - Contact Number 519-922-2706

Dog sledding popularity is growing by leaps and bounds. Since the first Iditarod in Alaska, the activity of dog sledding has spread to other locations across Canada. No other activity can compare to driving a team and listening to the quiet sounds of the sled runners in the snow and the dogs panting.

Sled dogs can pull twice their weight for hours at a time. They are able to run faster in the snow, which pads their feet and the cold air keeps them from getting too hot in their thick coats.

Rob Roy Snow Dogs Family Experience

In snowy Grey Highlands a dog sledding experience awaits you, only 30 minutes from Blue Mountain and two hours north of Toronto. An eager group of 4 huskies will take you on a ride of a lifetime. Experience the thrill of mushing your own dog sled team, as was done in the north many years ago.

After a short lesson of basic sledding commands such as "Let's go team," you will be well equipped to hop on your sled and be on your way. Be sure to hang on tight as your team pulls you around the track. Children as young as six can drive their own team or simply ride in the sled.

Warm up afterwards with hot chocolate in the barn's café. Groups can arrange ahead for chili and warm drinks. Dog sledding lasts approximately half an hour.

Corporate Experience

After a brief lesson, you'll be able to drive your own team of 4 huskies around the 1/3 km track. Take turns trying different dog teams. Groups of 15 or more people will have the opportunity to alternate between dog sledding and snowshoeing. Take pictures to show your fellow workers your once-in-a-lifetime, team building experience.
