Overview
More
The Durango Dog Ranch is a mushing adventure company offering year-round dog sledding experiences. In summer, visit the ranch, tour our working dog sled kennel, and take an overland adventure in the mountains with the sled dogs via cart or scooter. In winter, choose from hourly or half-day traditional dog sledding trips at our purgatory resort kennel location or in National Forest throughout the San Juan Mountains.
