COVID-19 Status Update, December- 2020
I have loaded availability for our fall cart tours and our winter dogsledding to our live calendar. I will only have one cart and one sled available per run which means you will be the only guest visiting us during the time you book.
Due to the inability to maintain a six foot distance on both the carts and the sleds face coverings will be required when riding.
Unfortunately we are also going to forego our heated cabin tent, hot chocolate and portable toilet at the trail site this winter so please come prepared for the lack of facilities the day of your tour.
To minimize our exposure here at home we are not offering kennel visits at this time. Hopefully this will be settled by spring and we will feel more comfortable welcoming guests to our home at that time.

A not so brief explanation as to why we do not have more sled tour openings this winter. Three years ago I began thinking about what it would look like to bring a close to Peace Pups Dogsledding. I had some things happen that made me wonder what would happen to my canine family if it got to a point where I could not provide proper care for them; a situation that seems to become more and more likely as I age. I decided to be proactive in this process and to begin phasing out our tours and not bringing in any younger dogs. We have gone from having thirty running dogs to fourteen and from running tours six days a week to two days a week. As our pups age we can not ask as much from them so we need to run less often.
My goal is for everyone of our dogs to be able to live out their life here with us and their pack and with any luck I will live long enough to see that happen.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and a huge thank you to all of the wonderful people who have shared time with us over the years. It has been an honor. Peace.
