Drive Your Own Dog Sled in Canada
Snowy Owl Sled Dog Tours offers self-driven and instructor-driven sled dog tours. If you would like to drive your own sled, we're okay with that. Before we head out, your instructor will touch on a few basic commands that you need to know, such as how to command the dogs to turn left and right. We'll also need to show you how to brake. We can train our sled dogs on how to turn and follow all sorts of commands, but training huskies on how to stop running when they are in full sprint is not possible. It's just not in their nature. That is why you need to have a brake and learn how to use it.
When you choose a self-drive tour, you will command your own sled, and an instructor will accompany you nearby in his/her own sled, just to keep an eye on everything and lend a hand if you need it.
Don't Miss the Opportunity to Go Dog Sledding
Many people dream of canine dog sledding, but very few will ever experience it. Be one of the very few! Please, call well in advance as our schedule begins filling up by October and November. After November, it will be more difficult to schedule on the exact days and times that you want to have your tour.
In the meantime, don't hesitate to reach out if you have any special needs, questions, or concerns. Snowy Owl hopes to see you on our canine dog sled tours in Banff.
