Enodah Kennel Dog Sledding

An hour Dog Sledding is a true wilderness experience!

Enodah Kennel was started in 2015 with a mission to provide quality dogsled tours whilst never sacrificing the wellbeing of the dogs. We are a reasonably small kennel with around 35 dogs, ensuring that each of our animals receives all the attention they need year-round.

Enodah Kennel is located 15-minutes from Yellowknife in our own secluded section of forest. We train all our dogs to be loose together and we work 12 months of the year training and exercising our pack of sled dogs. We encourage all our guests to interact with the dogs after the tour. Puppy cuddles are a must have!

The term “Enodah” means “many lynx”. This area has been aptly named, as throughout the season we are lucky enough to spot beaver, lynx, fox, squirrels, otters, and the tracks of much more wildlife, including wolf and moose. An hour with us is a true wilderness experience!

Drive Your Own Dog Team Package

Enodah Dog Sledding outside of Yellowknife

Enjoy the peaceful Boreal Forest by way of dogsledding. You will feel at one with the dogs as they lead you through the scenic trails of Enodah. You will learn the name and character of each dog on your team, to better understand why they are put in their different positions. 

This is a 45-minute activity in total, including a safety speech from your guides. This is a “Drive Your Own Sled” tour, but do not worry, you will be under very close supervision from Enodah’s experienced guides who will be more than happy to help you along the trail! We encourage interaction with our happy working huskies and will gladly take photos of you driving the team through the forest. At the end of the tour there will be lots of time for hugs and photos with all the dogs. See the dogs in their natural environment when they are let loose to play with guests and interact and play together.

Year Round Care

Our Enodah Kennel dogs begin their fall training program as early as the first week of September when the dogs look forward to hitching up to quad bikes and begin running the dirt trails around British Columbia and the Yukon. They spend their summers running tours in those areas and then settle into a fall training program before the snowfalls when they look forward to meeting you all winter just outside of Yellowknife.

Be sure to ask us all about their year-round care and training when you visit us this winter!
