Meet your guide at the designated location near Pagosa Springs to begin your dog sled tour.
Start with by touring the dog yard and meeting the purebred Alaskan Malamute dogs. Your guide provides an introduction to the basics of running sled dogs, including the gear and commands, and what to expect during your ride.
Next, your guide harnesses the dogs and hitches them to the sled. You can sit in the sled and relax for the duration of the ride, or stand on the rails and help your guide to run the team. The staff photographer snaps photos of your ride, and emails them to within a few days of your visit.
When you return from the ride, you can praise the dogs for their hard work, and warm up with a snack of hot cocoa and cookies. If desired, you can help your guide to unhitch the dogs and take care of the canine athletes before departing for your next destination.
