My husband and I are from the twin cities and absolutely LOVED our dog sledding experience at Chilly Dogs. We booked a bit late in the season for most of the dog sledding trips but Dona was great and worked with me to get our trip booked. Booking was extremely easy. We'd highly recommend dog sledding to anyone looking for... More

Had a blast! Fiancé and I went dog sledding in mid February and the weather was beautiful. Guides were great and very informational. I would recommend having this experience when you get a chance! Very nice folks!

We are from New Orleans and did not know what to expect. The staff was wonderful and educated us on sled dogs and the entire experience was great. Nice folks who are passionate about providing a memorable experience for their guests. We are already planning another trip next year...... it was that good!!!

The Hway family loves their dogs and it shows. Our family had a great time. We traded turns driving half way through the ride. Gorgeous trails through beautiful MN. Educational and hands on. Thank you for wonderful memories.

I decided for my 40th I'd love to try something new. I love the Northwoods and winter and this was perfect! We had two families and despite the unseasonably warm weather (which is tough on the dogs)...they made it work. It's clear they love these dogs and their well being is top priority. The day couldn't have been more stunning... More

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!
