When I first booked dog sledding, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. Would the dogs be these mountain ferocious beasts? Would it be more engaging or more passive? Would I enjoy It? And as it turned out, this is still undeniably one of my favourite winter memories here in Revelstoke. We arrived at the trail and assisted the tour operator in unloading and setting up the dogs. As an animal lover, I was concerned with how the dogs would be treated and was pleasantly surprised to see how much love and connection the dog’s owners had for his pooches. He insisted that we meet them all by name, give them love, attention and time prior to going for a ride. This set a very positive tone for the tour, I felt that their well being was his priority, and this detail really stuck in my mind. He educated us about the dogs, about their diet, about their need for exercise and I couldn’t get enough of these adorable yet strong and powerful dogs. Once they were set up and ready to roll, we hopped on the sled, and we were off! I was immediately engaged and excited by the speed, I was happy to learn it was fast enough to make my heart race, but still totally safe for the young ones or a cautious Cathy. As we were pulled along a glorious trail with unbeatable views, I got a moment to actually take it in. It’s a surreal, heart racing and almost primal feeling. I thoroughly enjoyed this experience, and as an added bonus I got to meet a litter of pups from a new mother and it was a perfect end to a fantastic day!
