Take a Ride on the Wild Side! 

We offer a TWO-hour tour by dogsled in and around the snowy mountains of Southwest Colorado at 9:30, 12:30 and our Sunset tours begin at 3:30(Sunset only available during peak season).Each sled holds up 2 people not to exceed 375 lbs. and each sled has a guide. Families are grouped together. We go in all conditions and have many trails to choose from all within 60 minutes of downtown Durango. All trips are non-refundable* as we have saved the sled just for you! This is a very interactive family friendly adventure. We have been called one of the best things to do in Durango and have been reviewed in Frommer's Travel Guide. 

*In the event of sickness only, we may extend a partial refund with 72-hour notice if we can fill the spot with our waitlist. Once you have booked, we have turned others away. We are an OUTDOOR activity and as long as we are safely allowed to operate, we will do so. Cancelling is not a guarantee of a refund. We will refund if we cannot safely operate. In some cases, we may issue a Rain Check to be used at a later date.


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, 17, and Hayden 15), thirty dogs, three cats, and three fish to grow old with". This family business is in its twenty-fifth year.
