Weekend Activity in Canada: Dog Sledding with Cute Huskies

//Weekend Activity in Canada: Dog Sledding with Cute Huskies

Last weekend, I experienced the most amazing hour while dog sledding in the North of Montreal. Before you guys scroll down to see pictures of the huskies tied up to the sled, I just want to tell you all that all the huskies there are perfectly trained, safe and nicely treated. I was actually worried myself that they would have to run every hour in such a cold weather and not being fed enough.

When you head up in the mountain and the first thing you see is a hundreds of dogs tied up with chains, you get a bit nervous!

About the Dogs

The people working there actually explained me that the dogs are tied up for obvious security and safety reasons. They wouldn’t want the dogs to attack others or run down the mountain.

The chains are not put in any harmful way. As for the weather, huskies are MEANT to work and be in this weather. Apparently, they love it. Let me know who else loves a -20 degree weather! The day we went up there, the weather was -2 degrees. That’s  even hot for them!

Next up, going on the sled!

My friend, Tamar was going to control the dogs and I was sitting in the sled trusting her with my life. I was SO nervous at the beginning but this was literally a friendship trust activity which turned out pretty good!

For 45 minutes, we were in a forest, going right, left, up and down some mountains with a beautiful scenery of huskies running freely in front of them and of trees, snow, white and green all around! It was truly such a beautiful morning and this is THE activity you all should do when coming to Canada! A truly amazing Canadian experience I must say!

Oh and, another reason why you MUST go dog sledding: THEY SHOW YOU THE HUSKIES PUPPIES AT THE END OF THE ACTIVITY! YOU CAN PET AND CUDDLE WITH THEM! Sorry, this just was the highlight of my day there! Bye now!

For more information on where I did it, contact me!

    Hi Sharon! These Huskies are just too cute, they are snow dogs and love running at low temperatures, so don’t worry for them. Much love, Valeria

    OMG OMG, I’m losing my shit over over the photos of the huskies 😀 I have always wanted to visit Montreal but now it has skyrocketed to the top of my list. I’m so glad that you determined that the huskies were being treated well. Please tell all the deets – where and which company? Which part of the year is the best time to go aka warmest time of the year they’ll do this? -2 sounds pretty crazy as it is but I’m up for the challenge haha!

    Much love, following your blog for more travel inspiration. X

      Hi, thank you so much for your comment, I really hope you get the chance to do it there! The company is called SKi-Doux, this is their website, https://www.skidoux.com. The best time to go is definitely around February I would say. March was amazing for us because the weather was getting warmer but the dogs are more capable of doing this work when it is colder so I would say go January, February just make sure to keep yourself warm!

    Those pictures are so cute!!! Dog sledding is really such an incredible experience, and Canada has a big tradition. It really reconnects you to nature but also to some sort of primordial connection between humans and dogs. And they love each other!

    Must do! I’ve been following the Iditarod since I was a kid, so this is definitely on my bucket list.

    Oooh, cuteness overload! Would definitely love to enjoy a snowing session with the dogs.

    Amazing! I used to do this in Skagway, Alaska and couldn’t get enough of playing with the puppies.

    I’m impressed, I need to say. Genuinely rarely do I encounter a blog that is each educative and entertaining, and let me let you know, you’ve hit the nail on the head. Your thought is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I am pretty happy that I stumbled across this in my search for some thing relating to this.

    It’s appropriate time to make some plans for the future and it is time to be happy. I’ve read this post and if I could I wish to suggest you few interesting things or advice. Maybe you can write next articles referring to this article. I wish to read even more things about it!
