Eden Dogsledding Eden Dogsledding

OPEN for 2024! Our Popular Stay and Sled packages starting at $1795 Includes BETA tour and 2 nights lodging only available Spring, Summer and Colorful Fall. Highly specialized! Ethical Sled Dog Sanctuary Experience, Dogsledding-On-Wheels Exclusive, only found here! We offer the REAL CALL OF THE WILD EXPERIENCE! Adults and Kids love this Rare multiple sleddog friendly tour experience!

Our Un-Chained Gang's ethical, free-range approach allows us to offer a "loose-drop" pond stop where the dogs can swim and cool off during summer tours. YOU WON'T EXPERIENCE THIS ANYWHERE ELSE.    

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 or more fun - and much less chilly!  Our interactive 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.  You will learn about our unique ethical dog husbandry, 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 German made dogsled-on-wheels and then take you for a ride on our private, summer dogsledding 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 in the summer.  Watch the dog's playful antics - swimming in the water, jumping for cookies and racing laps around the pond.  This is an extremely specialized activity and exclusive to the UN-Chained-Gang!

Beta Tour

Our most popular tour by far- geared towards families and children.  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 30 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 you are hands-on harnessing and hitching the dogs. 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 pond break for the dogs to cool off during your wheeled sled ride. Refreshments and complimentary postcards offered on returning to the learning center..

 Total 4 Adults, OR 2 Adults and up to 3-4 children. $25 each addditional passenger for up to 6 persons total per tour, including splitting of ride time between passengers. 350 lb maximum weight limit apllies.

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!” 
Amy and Christian -June 2007
