Spring, Summer and Fall Dogsledding-On-Wheels™ (Dog Carting)

Once the snow stops flying we are able to offer Dogsledding-On-Wheels TM Tours during the spring, summer and fall.  Although different from snow sledding, it's just as much fun - and much less chilly!  Our educational tours allow you to meet our free-range "UN-Chained Gang" of people pleasing, loving and fun Alaskan Huskies in a personal, more relaxed way than the busy winter season allows. Every UN-Chained Gang tour is a great educational experience. You will learn about dog conciousness, pack dynamics, social order as well as the ins and outs of the world of dogsledding. The dogs love to show you how to harness and hitch them to our specially designed cart and then take you for a ride on our incredible trail system. The ride portion of the tour is a demonstration of canine teamwork. Our unique "pond stop"  gives the dogs a chance to cool off, allowing us to offer tours even when other sledding establishments are closed for the summer, or dangerously overheating their dogs.  At the pond you can watch the dog's playful antics - swimming in the water, jumping for cookies and racing laps around the pond.  Depending on the season you may spot deer, turkeys and many other species of birds, including ducks, herons and hawks and maybe even a moose!

Watch a Dogsledding-On-Wheels adventure!

Beta Tour  Do you love animals?  Then come in and meet the UN-Chained Gang!  The first thing you will see is a room filled with happy, loving doggy friends sleeping and relaxing everywhere.  Our dogs are one-of-a-kind who are able to be friendly and socialize, while also being a champion sprint racing team.  How do we do it with 37-40 dogs?  The dogs themselves are the miracle who, with a little help from us, have mostly learned from a constantly emerging pack behavior.  Witness the amazing results of this canine consciousness for yourself!  You can hang out with them and pet them on the couch and then harness and hitch the dogs up.  Watch them joyously anticipate the run right before they shoot off and take you zipping through our beautiful wooded trail system.  This tour also includes a pleasant leisurely pond break within your wheeled sled ride, snacks, beverages, and free postcards.

What our guests have to say -


Hey Jim - I just wanted to thank you for how special you treated us when we visited last month.  Eden Dogsledding and Dogsledding-On-Wheels is an asset to Vermont that everyone should know about.  Johnny has not stopped talking about the dogs or the dogsled-ride-on-wheels.  After everything else we did while in Vermont, our visit with you guys is all he can talk about. . . and the first thing I bring up with friends when they ask about the trip. . . I truly can’t thank you enough. . . . we will return . .  P.S. . Johnny asked if you would tell all the dogs hello from him . . especially Luna!”Johnny, Lisa and John -Gulfport, Mississippi


“We want to thank you for an adventurous tour last Sunday with the dogs!  We had a great time and we loved all the dogs.  They were all so adorable and friendly and it is clear they are very happy.  They definitely have a good home and we can tell they are very loved.  We especially loved Luna, she’s a sweetheart and we wished we could take her home!  We plan on coming back next summer for another visit!”
