Overview
If you thought dog sledding was only done in winter, think again. On this visit to Durango Dog Ranch, visit with the farm’s furry residents, take a tour of the operation, and if you’re lucky, snag a few snuggles with the youngest members of the pack. After the tour, take an exciting scenic cart or scooter ride with fantastic views of La Plata Canyon.
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Arrive at the kennel and visit with the dogs. Guides will teach you all about our dogs and kennel. After a tour of the property you will take either a cart or scooter ride, depending on what is most appropriate for your group.

    • Or Drive your own Scooter. Scooter ride requires agility and biking skills, and is most appropriate for adventure seekers 10 and up or 100-240 lbs. Scooter riders must pass short agility test!
    • Be prepared to get dirty, especially after rain.
    • Wear sturdy closed toe shoes and clothes made for outdoor stomping. Long sleeves and pants are suggested!

    This was a lot of fun. We enjoyed learning about what the dogs daily lives entail and watching them get excited to have a chance to pull you around was fantastic! We will try and come back during winter months for some snow and this adventure again. All the dogs were great
