We had a very in-depth tour with Russell and his sled dogs and what he does to take care of them. We got to play with the yearling puppies and learned a lot and enjoyed a delicious lunch at the café!

We booked with Mad Dogs and Englishmen hoping that a company that a smaller company farther away from the commercialization of BANFF may deliver a better product. The dog sled tour we went on with this group far exceeded expectations. If you are traveling to...More
