The Door County Sled Dogs
Dog Sled Rides & Upcoming Events
The Door County Sled Dogs provide weekly dog sled rides at Milwaukee’s Whitnall Park, Milwaukee's premier winter wonderland. These take place on Saturday and Sunday 11am to 1pm, - Jan. 4th (Whitnall Park) - through February 22nd. All rides are on a first-come first-served basis and are for all ages. The entire experience includes visiting with the dogs, question and answer time with the mushers, picture-taking time and an actual dog sled ride around the trail. The trail is the size of a football field and not so fast that it's over too quickly. Well, it's always over too quickly, you'll want it to last forever--it's that much fun! Feel what it’s like to ride on an authentic freight sled or our MightyTtundra Tracker (a dryland wheeled Kart for low snow conditions), see the dogs pulling from behind, and know that this is the real thing!
Also, remember that all group and special event rides are available starting to book in August 2014 (Dec.. thru Feb. dates only so book early). See you on the trail!
