15 minutes from Yellowknife
Enodah Kennel was started in 2015 with a mission to provide quality dogsled tours while never sacrificing the wellbeing of our dogs. We are a small kennel of less than 30 dogs, that way each of our animals receives all the attention they need from Cynthia and Coady.
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.
Drive Your Own Dog Team 2017
$125.00 per person
Available Nov 25 - April 15
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.
There is a brand new lodge on site where you can warm up after the tour and enjoy a coffee, tea or hot chocolate. Washrooms are available.
Transportation from Yellowknife is available.

Born and raised in Nova Scotia, Coady has been dog mushing across Canada his whole adult life, with stops in the Canadian Rockies, British Columbia, Alberta and Nova Scotia. His background includes Sprint and Long Distance Alaskan Huskies, and he hopes to enter the North American racing circuit sometime over the next five years. Coady has travelled and worked across Canada, by dog-team, on bicycle, on foot and by truck. A full time guide, he keeps busy running sled dogs in the winter, fishing in the spring and biking in the summer.
As long as he is outdoors and experiencing new challenges, Coady is content.
This is Cynthia's 12th year working with sled dogs. She started in the sport as a handler and guide in southeastern Quebec, near her hometown of Saint Magloire. She spent her first four years learning and working with Siberian, Malamute and Samoyed breeds. Then, as an expert in expedition travel by dog-team, Cynthia was recruited as a head guide in Quebec, and she organized sled rides and expeditions for four years.
Cynthia then mixed her passions for culture and dogs, in Ushuaia, Argentina, the other end of the world. There she worked with Sprint Racing sled dogs in a much warmer climate, surrounded by darkness or a deep red sky. Cynthia returned to Canada to work with Long Distance Alaskan Huskies in the Canadian Rockies.
Cynthia speaks fluent English, French and Spanish.
and is working at perfecting more. She likes to be in harmony with nature. Cynthia volunteers with children and dogs and trains her own dog Biloute as a firefighter rescue dog and avalanche rescue dog.
