My husband, son and I spent two night at one of the cabins on the property and did two dog sledding adventures. Unfortunately, the owner Jim was away at a dog sled race in Quebec for the weekend; however, we were happy that Nathan who was in charge of the sledding was more than accommodating. Jim owns a total of 30 dogs, all of which were very friendly. Some of them live outside in fenced in areas where little dog houses are located. Others appear to live inside the sledding barn. They all greeted us warmly and loved our attention. Nathan even gave us one dog for the whole weekend who not only stayed in our cabin and by our side the whole time but also slept in my son's bed. He was in heaven to say the least. Because the sleds can take only two people at a time, my son (who is 11 years old) and I did the sledding on one day and my husband and son did it on the next day. Nathan let my son do a lot of the work which he loved, including harnessing the dogs and hitching them to the sled. He also let my son help steer the sled in some areas. We did a beautiful tour through the forest and mountains which was extremely scenic. After about 45 minutes, we stopped at a little heated cabin where we made some nice hot chocolate. Then we sledded for another 15 minutes or so. It was so fun to experience this. Nathan said that although they stopped the sledding for the season at the end of March, they still did dog sledding when there was no snow and used wheels instead. Since the dogs get hot quickly, the warmer weather experience was not as long and the break consisted of a swim in the ponds by both the dogs and people. My son enjoyed the end of the trip where he got to feed the dogs a meal of water and raw meat (called baited water) and dog biscuits. We have been home for two days now and my son has been asking me at least twice a day when we can go back and see "the dogs".
