If you’re looking for a place to try dog sledding in the Poconos, Arctic Paws is the one and only place to go. The current owners learned how to run the dog sledding, which is referring to as mushing, from the former owner. After adopting and raising their own first two huskies, they purchased the business to bring the joy of dog sledding to visitors and locals alike. When you visit Arctic Paws, you’ll be able to enjoy the thrill that is dog sledding as well as have the chance to meet the adorable huskies. Interact with the Siberian and Alaska huskies up-close before hopping into a sled for the ride of a lifetime. Before heading there, be sure to wear proper attire. In the winter, they suggest wearing several layers, a ski jacket, and hats and gloves to stay warm.
