With the recent negative media that dog sledding has been getting due to some incidents in Ottawa, I've been getting a lot of questions about my experience at North Ridge Ranch, and how the dogs were, etc. And I want to say, set your fears...More

This is no Canada's Wonderland...An experience in its true form, real dogs, real sleds, real snow. Go prepared for the cold and to pay attention to the instructions. It is a bit pricey, but the dogs are well looked after and loved, so we did...More

My recommendation to find an answer to your question is to ask the operator directly in a private conversation. you should have asked in private, and would have likely received a proper answer, which would have educated you on dogsledding and Alaskan huskies. Try this instead of shaming operators publicly without first talking to them and asking in private. We have used Brad and Leah's services and they treat their animals excellent. Ask them, they will explain how.

Brad was respectful and patient. They are dogs not robots, and he cares very much for them, he needs to answer quickly and be loud so that the situation can be solved. We had no problem with Brad and are surprised by some of the comments stating otherwise.
