Love at first sight!
You can apply to be on the waiting list to adopt a retiring dog or a younger dog that will not be on the main team. These dogs make great pets. Sometimes quality sled dogs are available for sale to use as team dogs and/or lead dogs. Call or write and let us know what your needs are.

Children love to ride
Children love sledding! Joel has brought his sleds and dogs to the elementry schools, and given guided rides all afternoon on the frozen lake. Class by class, the children take their turns for a ride. The dogs can pull about four children at a time. The teachers have fun too!
During the seasons when we don't have snow, we train the dogs by pulling a 4 wheel cart on the
Soo Line Trail.
