Dogsled Tours and Rides
with October Siberians
This is not just a ride in a dog sled, but an interactive experience of driving the sled. Our sleds are designed for two drivers with the Mushers maintaining full control while the second driver responds and adjusts for the sled to perform properly. The second passenger gets to sit back and enjoy the ride in an enclosed sled bag with blanket.
We have the ability and flexibility to provide technical thrilling downhill or a simple ride in the Park. The sled can comfortably accommodate a family of four with two young children.
Our tours are located at Little River State Park in Waterbury, "The Recreation Cross Roads of Vermont", near Stowe, Sugarbush (Mad River Valley), Bolton, Burlington and Montpelier. A tour with us will not only be an amazing time in the dog sled, but also a day visiting Vermont's favorite attractions.
This Years News
This year's operation will be contending with a Logging in the State Park so our Tours / Rides will look slightly different. As in years past the snow is unpredictable and we appreciate your flexibility as we deal with this variable. Tours maybe converted to Rides, we may need to move to back up locations; and If sledding is not happening, cart tours may be available for the time slot. Roads cannot be too icy. Kennel tours our available when we are not running the dogs.
The October Siberians welcome the new mascot and house dog McGee. He is a Cavelier King Charles Spaniel, filling the space in the house of the former matriarch, Sugar. While Sugar was opinionated and selective of the people and dogs in her life, McGee, like our Siberians loves everyone. He will not be joining us on the trail, but will be happy to welcome you to our kennel.
Three great reasons to dogsled with us:
Training and Breeding Sled Dogs Since 1994
Rob’s first sled dogs arrived in 1994 and his kennel is working with his fourth generation from Micro - first lead dog. Rob has proven experience on the trail in all conditions and technical driving abilities. He knows the tricks to keep your experience fun and safe.
It Is All About the Dogs
The Siberian Huskies are friendly, energetic, independent and honest hard working dogs. They are always happy to meet new people, are great with children and have earned the reputation of Love the One You're With. They have that classic northern dog look that people associate with sled dogs.
Little River State Park
Is a gem of Central Vermont. The beauty of the Waterbury reservoir, the campground roads and the hilly terrain provides diversity and takes you far enough into the back country to escape civilization. The loops in the campground allow us to show how a well trained dog team performs, and provides the opportunity for the clients to photograph each other on the sled.
