These dogs are special…All are rescued dogs who have been placed within the family kennel (Tokamak Kennel, underwood), or with friends who have lovingly offered a space in their homes to make these wonderful dogs a part of their family

All dogs spend 2 weeks meting the team and working with Amanda and Vic to see that the dogs get along with other dogs, WANT to pull, and generally have a good attitude.

With the time and love, these dogs have become a mighty team of AMAZING animals that have taken our mushers over and through MANY miles of beautiful terrain otherwise inaccessible in the winter

powerful force of energy’. This is a 6 dog team made up of Rocky (lead), Kuda (Swing), Carmac, Reiker, Asiac, and the newest addition, Grizzly. This is a long distance touring team which is able to run distances of 60-90km in a day. This team is the 3rd generation of teams run by Victor Hutter who has owned and rescued 24 dogs over the course of his 35 year history of sledding, putting them together into a team that has wowed folks by their good behavior, and capability.

This team is available for longer trips. You can meet the dogs at our kennel on the 10th concession of Bruce (please contact us for more details), then leave from site along a system of trails, or along the shoreline for an Ice Tour experience.

The “Saugeen shores Pet” Crew is always in the works. Made up of 8 dogs that are owned by wonder friends fom Kincardine, Port Elgin, and Paisley, Amanda works with these dogs and their owners to train and work with husky dogs who are anxious and excited to be pulling! This co-operative works well, giving the dogs the healthy exercise that husky’s need to get, and making sure all dogs (mostly rescues) receive the most love and attention that they need to reach their full potential.

Play time! All dogs are socialized and allowed time to run free before and after tours...now thats some good dogs!
