Are Private Dog Sledding Tours Ethical?
A lot of dog lovers mistakenly think that letting dogs pull sleds and run excessively is cruel and inhumane, but in reality, nothing could be further from the truth! Snowy Owl Sled Dog Tours' dogs have been bred to run and pull. In fact, when they are performing these tasks, they are at their happiest. All you have to do is show them a harness, and our dogs go nuts! They get stoked about running because it's what they love to do most!
How Does Snowy Owl Choose Which Dogs Will Pull Sleds?
First, any dog that will pull sleds must have a great desire to travel and a great appetite because they will be burning excessive calories when they are running. It's no surprise that our dogs have been specifically bred for this task. Sled dogs must have tough feet, and they must follow orders unconditionally. When a dog is as young as six-months-old, we will begin training them for the job by letting them run along with the pack. We'll see how they perform in a harness and go from there. Older dogs are assigned to shorter tours, and younger, stronger dogs are assigned to longer tours.
