Durango Dog Ranch


Durango Dog Ranch provides fun and interactive dog sled tours for all ages. We offer one hour tours at Purgatory Resort and half day tours on trails chosen for best snow conditions in the beautiful San Juan Mountains. All tours allow guests the opportunity to be as involved in the entire mushing experience as much as they would like, from harnessing the dogs to learning how to drive the sled. Hot drinks are served at the end of each adventure. As a family run kennel for over 25 years, we like to provide a very personal and exceptional experience for all our guests.

One hour tours at our Purgatory Resort kennel are a great intro into mushing. Two adults or 375 lbs. per sled. Some same day trips are available but we recommend online reservations through our website.

Half day tours are approximately 3-4 hours and offer guests the backcountry adventure of a lifetime. A private guide will teach you how to mush on exclusive trails throughout the San Juan Mountain range. Two adults or 375 lbs. per sled. Advanced reservations are required through our website.

Durango Dog Ranch has been called one of the “Top Ten” things to do in Durango by Sunset Magazine and reviewed in Frommer’s as a “Must Do” under Colorado Getaways. Most recently, Durango was rated as one the “Best Places To Spend Christmas” in Travel and Leisure Magazine.”
