Dog sledding is a magical experience that Blake, Steph and our talented staff are proud to share. Since 1993, our friendly Alaskan husky sled dogs have introduced thousands of people to dog sledding with wagging tails and unmatched enthusiasm. We can't wait to share our 20+ years of experience with you!
Choose from 2 hours to a full day of mushing. There is no minimum or maximum age, but children 2 and under are free with a paying adult, and can ride on an adult's lap. Children, some as young as 3 years old, enjoy standing on the runners with us as they help drive the team!
Custom overnight dog sledding or skijoring winter camping and fishing trips are available. We are also the only dog sledding kennel in the region that offers horse drawn sleigh rides. Don't forget to ask us about bringing the dog teams to your location for a special event or program. Have a large group? We offer winter sampler programs for up to 60 participants, and heated indoor classroom space for up to 25 people for a catered meal or snacks and hot drinks.
Our tours are offered 7 days a week. While advanced reservations are available on line and via phone up to 72 hours in advance, holidays and weekends fill fast so be sure to book early. Positive Energy offers high quality, hands on dog sledding experiences with small group sizes! Our comfortable sleds carry 1-2 adult passengers, 1 adult and 1-2 children, or up to three children.
Positive Energy Outdoors offers scenic trails that rival the beauty of the Boundary Waters and include forests, bogs and frozen lakes. Start out as a passenger as we leave from the kennel--during the tour, you'll have the opportunity to drive the sled with a guide as your coach if snow conditons allow, or just relax in the sled and enjoy the ride. We also offer a drive your own team option for those with previoius mushing experience.

Our kennel is located just 15 miles north of Duluth (a 25-30 minute drive), 40-45 minutes from Two Harbors and approximately 3 hours from the Twin Cities.
