At Durango Dog Ranch, we’re dedicated to providing guests with a unique and unforgettable experience. Our team of knowledgeable and experienced mushers will guide you through the beautiful and rugged terrain of the Rocky Mountains. The dogs we work with are friendly, well-trained, and eager to show you how they can help you explore the area. Our tours are designed to provide you with an exciting adventure while teaching you about the history and culture of the region. Join us and let the dogs show you the way! When you book, the sled is saved just for you! We go in all conditions and our tours are NON-REFUNDABLE! This is a winter activity, so prepare for all conditions. Four-wheel drive is encouraged. We have many trailheads to choose from, all within an hour of Durango. You will receive a text the night before with directions to the trail. We operate under a Special Use permit from the Forest Service (USDA). All ages are welcome!
DURANGO DOG RANCH is owned and operated by Gregg & Gretchen Dubit. In 1988 these two outdoor enthusiasts met as employees of Sugarbush Ski Resort in Vermont. They moved west to attend Fort Lewis College, and both became teachers. The outdoors called again, and Gregg's fascination with sled dogs led to adventures by dogsled. It all started twenty-eight years ago when Gretchen said, "I Do," and Gregg thought she said, "I do want two kids (Lydia, 19, and Hayden, 17), thirty dogs, three cats, and three fish to grow old with". This family business is in its twenty-eighth year. Below are guides who we also call family.
