From the time we drove into the driveway, we knew we'd picked the right place for our first (hopefully, not last) dog sledding trip. What a class act! Warmly welcomed with smiles and appreciation. Led into the gorgeous facility, where we received our thorough instructions. When meeting the dogs, you could sense how much they were loved and well taken... More

We had an outstanding adventure at Chilly Dogs on Valentine's Day. Very exhilarating and something most people never get to do. The sled dogs are very friendly, and the Hway family's passion and love for their animals is fantastic to see. You can mush the team if you're physically capable, or just ride along in the sled for a great... More

February 3rd we had a dog sled rde with friends on Chilly Dogs. From the first time we talked and e-mailed with them, we knew we were in good hands. They were VERY organized,gave easy instructions and took good care of us. Now we can't wait to have our family come up for rides with them. You will love it!

Wonderful people, wonderful dogs. Expected trip to be fun and it was that and more. My wife, son and I had the best day in a long time! The Chilly Dogs people are gracious and helpful. It was impressive to see how well they cared for their dogs

Our group was 3 adults and 2 children (ages 9 & 10). Highlights include: winter clothing rentals, meeting the dogs, learning about the dogs, mushing, meeting the family (owners), warming by the wood stove and hearing the kids share their experience. The guides were patient and informative. The owners were caring and gracious. We will do this again!

My son and I went dog sledding with Chilly Dogs this weekend and we had the time of our lives. My son rode with Jess, the lead guide, and I was matched up with Drew, another guide who was very patient! Before we learned the ins and outs of sledding, we got to hug and kiss some amazing dogs. Then... More

Donna and Jeff were thorough, thoughtful, kind and courteous. They answered all of our questions and made it possible for us to surprise our family for Christmas with an outstanding experience. My entire family (47 to 10 years of age) had a wonderful time with your staff (guides) and dogs. Our crew had so many questions about the lifestyles of... More

Going on a dog-sledding trip is something everyone should do and if you are in the northwoods Chilly Dogs is the place to do it. Everything about the experience was amazing and the passion that Jake, Donna, Jeff and the others have for the dogs is infectious. The shorter trips are priced well and give you a taste of dog-sledding... More
