About The Dog Ranch
The Durango Dog Ranch is a family business, owned and operated by Gregg & Gretchen Dubit for over 25 years. 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. They offer a variety of experiences, including kennel tours and excursions based on the season.
During the summer, enjoy a dog scooter excursion with your group. When you arrive, you will take a kennel tours to meet and learn about the dogs. Then, you'll have to make sure you meet the weight requirements and can pass an agility test. When everything checks out, you'll each get your own scooter and be roped to a sled dog. Hold on tight and take a scenic ride on the property with views of the La Plata Mountains.
If you are interested in a summer tour but don't meet the weight or agility requirements for a scooter, ATV and cart tours are available. Get together with a group of 4-5 riders and enjoy a quick trip pulled by sled dogs through the property. You'll get the same great views as the scooter tour, with an easier ride accessible to people of all ages.
Whether there's 4 feet of snow outside or it is 80 and sunny, the Durango Dog Ranch offers opportunities for you to interact with real sled dogs and take exciting excursions. Enjoy breathtaking views while watching the dogs do their best work on your next trip to Durango.
