Welcome to Eden ETHICAL Sled Dog Sanctuary!
Home of the Magical UN-Chained Gang

Changing the way the world thinks about sled dogs!

THANK YOU to all of our wonderful Patrons who make this sled dog Sanctuary possible! Your support make this sanctuary sustainable as the cost for tours does not cover the yearly expenses. But for this to go on for generations we still have more to do.
 
If you love sled dogs and want a dream experience with our beloved sled dogs - who live chain free and happy year-round on our gorgeous 140-acre sanctuary with miles of trails through scenic vermont mountains - please call. Because we don't chain or cage our race and rescue tour dogs, give them a lifetime of care AND pay our very limited staff living wages- the tours start at $1000 - which includes visits, hands on learning and a dog sledding tour. We also do custom tours. Call with questions and to reserve a spot. 1-802-635-9070
 
Eden ETHICAL Dog Sledding Sanctuary is an Anomaly in North America; we love our dogs and love to share the quality of life with working dogs that humans have had for thousands of years.
 
100% of your tour cost, along with outside funding, goes to support the dogs & the Sanctuary - keeping sled dogs ETHICALLY, no lives on short chains, and maintaining a professional farm where the dogs enjoy year round dog sledding, have quality of life from cradle to beloved retirement -with vet care -and for the rescues from race kennels is very expensive. THAT is why we say we do not give “doggie rides” - we share The Call of the Wild and the stuff that dreams and Bucket lists are made of.

Our Sled Dog Sanctuary is on a 140-acre farm in the gorgeous, pristine Mountains of Northern Vermont –Meet, cuddle, take photos with, and celebrate with these extraordinary, personable, athletic, hard working dogs and participate in the heirloom experience that northern people had with their dogs when they lived together with respect.

Our scenic, private 4 mile trail system is designed and created specifically to provide fun and a chance to see how real dog teams work together with their human mushers. Many kennels offering tours keep their costs low by chaining, and do not have and maintain their own farms and trail systems because it is a far less expensive option for them

For over 20 years we are the Gold Standard of Ethical Sled dog care in North America AND the Planet.

We don't believe in chaining, we believe in quality of life for all working dogs from cradle to grave. Unlike others, we don't give doggy rides. We share a One-Of-A-Kind Canine Experience that includes Dogsledding. Coming here you will have an amazing experience with these precious dogs AND support our vision of Quality of life for ALL Working Sled Dogs.

Eden ETHICAL Sled Dog Sanctuary and Adventures Advises all customers that due to Weather Instability we cannot guarantee snow.

People LOVE our wheeled sleds for non-snow including Winter Adventures. NO cancellation due to lack of snow

Real dogsledding is a dying art-as we present it is an herlooom experience.

HANDS ON, INTERACTION with our WELL SOCIALIZED ALASKAN HUSKIES

Step into the world of the UN-Chained Gang and discover true Canine Consciousness and dog pack dynamics!

Welcome! We invite you to learn about the International Sprint Race Champions, TheUN-Chained Gang and Champion race musher, Jim Blair’s revolutionary vision of ethical dog sledding. For twenty years we have stood for love, quality care – no lives on chains! – and sharing the joy that well kept, Alaskan Huskies bring to children and adults - humanity!

The vision of Eden Ethical Dog Sledding is to share the true joy of living with sled dogs and the wilderness journey that they have made possible for humans for thousands of years. We have developed an OASIS for the UN-Chained Gang and the guests of all ages that come for our educational, fun, all season adventure tours. Over the last 18 years we have developed miles of real trail system that is JUST for dogsledding, a real journey back into the magical time when dogs and humans worked and lived together. In the midst of thousands of acres of Northern Vermont mountain beauty, we offer a million dollar trail system for dogsledding with the top sled dog racers – The UN-Chained Gang – who stand for proving that dogs can go fast, be our best friends, win internationally and provide friendship to the many guests they have visited each year from all over the world. International Sprint Sled Dog Champion, Jim Blair, invites you to come to participate in this real canine, interactive experience.

Our tours are hands-on, where you experience the love and joy that these special dogs of the UN-Chained Gang bring to everyone a Discovery Channel experience where you learn to make up a team, harness each dog, hitch up the team, then go for a tour over our amazing trail system - - THE ONLY BUILT AND MAINTAINED DAILY TRAIL SYSTEM FOR DOG SLEDDING IN THE LOWER 48 STATES!!!!!

We have a comfortable learning center where you meet and can cuddle with our gentile, for children and adults, champion race dogs, who are often lounging on couches and enjoying the wood stove in winter. In spring, summer and fall we have imported, high performance, wheeled, European sled/carts that take you on a great tour that includes stops for a pond swim for the dogs and lots of playful interaction with these amazing, charming characters.

This is the real deal, wilderness experience. People come back often, hooked on this unique experience. This is not a “cheap, doggie ride” – your tour dollars go to support the vision of Ethical Dog Sledding for all sled dogs that we have stood for in racing and touring for the last 20 years. WE ARE NOT like any other race or tour kennel in Canada or the USA. Our award winning dogs are known world-wide for their individual personalities and love of humans.

Eden ETHICAL Dog Sledding is proud to share fun, educational tours in our Vermont mountain, wilderness location with our INTERNATIONAL CHAMPION race sled dogs. Learn more about us by exploring this site and watching some of our videos. Then call us to reserve a tour that best suits your interests!
