We both want to say a huge "Thank You" for our tremendous dog sledding experience on the weekend. It was truly one of the best things we've ever done and a real adrenaline rush. We were both very impressed by the professionalism of your whole outfit - from the superb website to the great instruction from Matt. The best endorsement is the sheer delight on the dog's faces as they were getting ready to work! It is obvious that they are so well looked after. Again, thanks for a brilliant day and we both look forward to our next visit to Winterdance.

We had a wonderful time on Saturday morning. The dogs were so friendly and sweet! And the guides were patient and helpful. We made memories to last a lifetime. This is definitely the beginning of a new winter tradition for the both of us!
~ Johanna Osena and Trevor Holmes, Toronto, Ontario
Diane with Storm.....your incredible dogs gave me the ride of a lifetime. Your efforts in socializing the dogs are evident. They are all friendly and each a "special love". Your guides also are excellent, knowledgeable, pleasant, courteous & safety conscious. I have highly recommended Winterdance. Thank you again for a truly unique experience. All of my friends back here in Arizona are waiting to see the pictures of the dogs. Thank you for your kindness. It was truly appreciated.

Can't say any more than ......WOW. What an amazing time we had back in February. My wife and i were toally blown away by the experience. The weather was perfect. All the guides were great and very professional. The hot chocolate and pastries hit the spot. (yum). The dogs were some of the most beautiful creatures we've ever saw. You should be proud of your business and accomplishments.
~ Todd Billings, Ontario
Just a quick note to thank you for the wonderful dogsledding experience. The dogs unbridled enthusiasm is infectious! I plan to return next year for a longer trip! Thanks again!
~ Jen Ross, Toronto, Ontario
My daughter and I had the best day ever, what an absolutely fabulous day out we had. I have a picture of one of your dogs on my kitchen windowsill to remind me that after a horrendous previous year I finally found something that made me feel alive again. The dogs, the snow, the blue sky, the fantastic staff and the sheer exhilaration of racing over the frozen lake was just amazing. I will return again, until than...
~ Sue Anderson, Oxton, United Kingdom
Myself and my other half Paul, came out to have a dogsledding experience with you while we were over in Canada on a 8 day holiday with Travel Scope in February. We just wanted to say that it was the best experience that we've ever had the pleasure to take part in and it will be an experience that we shall never ever forget. The dogs on our team Gerdy, Lightening, Buffy & Slippers were so friendly and loving (must be good owner relationship) and it thoroughly made our holiday. Thanks for the great experience and it will be hard for us to find anything that will match it. Thanks!
~ Claire Mogie & Paul Tubey, Bristol, England
Our family thanks you people for letting us have a beautiful experience with those wonderful and friendly dogs, we can tell that you take good care of the Huskies, and that is very good. We specially want to thank our guides for being so kind.

Everyone was so friendly and we all had a blast!! Thank you so much to you and hank and all the others as well. I am so happy that I actually got to do this trip. Everything was perfect and I had an awesome time. The dogs were adorable and so much fun and the scenery was breathtaking) it really was!

Just wanted to let you know my husband and I had a great time this past Sunday! We are really glad we did it. It was a perfect day with the snow falling and Hank was very patient and informative. It is obvious he loves what he is doing and the dogs and they respond to him likewise. Your directions were perfect and we had a smooth trip both ways. Thank you again for a unique experience, we will be sure to recommend you to anyone who is interested in doing something different! We may bring out grand-daughters up in the summer for your summer program sometime. Thanks again.
~ Pat and Dave Hamon, New York
(....The Guides) made you feel like a friend instead of a customer and we were able to hold the dogs, dogs very friendly. It was a blast!!!! Thanks again!!!
~ Mr. & Mrs. Steve Moon, Mississauga, Ontario
Hi Cindy and Chrystal (the two lead dogs in our team). We went on one of your half-day tour packages a couple of weeks ago and I have not stopped talking about it yet. I've told everybody who would listen to me talk about how wonderful and exciting the experience was! Hank was a great guide... he told us a lot about the dogs. It was Katie's birthday (the other lady who was in our group)... and it was really nice when we stopped halfway to have some snacks, hot chocolate and a birthday muffin with a candle for her!! Your website is great! I've been telling everybody to go visit it. Not many people knew of this adventure... now they do!! A lot of them are now convinced that they have to try this out. Well, we'll definitely be back!!
~ Mary and Marek Toronto, Ontario
Thank you SO much!! We had such a fantastic time and feel complete in the knowledge that we have experienced some of the "real" Canada outside of Toronto! We had such fun yesterday - what fantastic timing with the snow and the great weather! Hank, Dan and Casey were really great teachers and great fun at the same time - and so nice to have done it with Todd and Susie who were on exactly the same wavelength as us! Thank you so much for helping to make our time in Canada a real dream! Thank you again - and we will DEFINITELY be telling everyone about you!
~ Lucy and Simon, Toronto, Ontario
We would like to thank you for a great day of dogsledding. We've had a fabulous time, we loved the dogs & had a good laugh...
~ Andy, Sabine & Stefan, "The Belgians"
The trip was perfect! The full moon, stars and birthday cake at the campfire were so special. The dogs are great & so well cared for. Good luck, we'll be back.
~ Pat Chapman, Toronto, Ontario
Just wanted to send a quick note to let you know my husband loved his birthday present, we both had a really great time. We have told our friends and now of course they want to go too! Thanks again, really a memorable experience we can't wait to do again!

Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the dogsledding adventure last Saturday! It truly was a "once in a lifetime" experience and the guides were very helpful. The dogs were wonderful and I will definitely recommend Winterdance to others in the future. Thanks again for all and all the best in 2003!!!

I just wanted to write to tell you what a wonderful time my girls and I had on our dogsled adventure last week. Of all the adventures we had in Ontario, dogsledding 'took the prize'. We are anxious to come back again next year..... Thanks again for the opportunity!

Thanks for a great run last Friday. The kids loved the event & James called it an adventure. Hank was especially nice to James and it was very much appreciated. It truly was an experience we'll always remember.

I wanted to thank you for helping create a memorable & enjoyable evening on Feb. 10th. I bought a gift certificate for your moonlite tour that evening and my boyfriend surprised me with a beautiful marriage proposal. The entire evening, the night sky, the company (including the dogs) and the tour was just awesome!
~ Erin McKean, Clarkson, Ontario, Canada
Big thank you to all of you for a great experience, but especially to Matthew for his patience with our girls, they were talking about him and the dogs for the rest of the weekend. He made Steff's "5th" birthday extra special. See you next year.

You had a group of very happy dog sledders!! They had the perfect night didn't they? They all want a longer run! You have really added something to do in the Haliburton Highlands by being here. Thanks.
~ Don & Jessie Plug, Owner's of Stouffer Mill B&B
The dogsled excursion was a lot of fun and I would definitely recommend it. I can not think of anything that would make it more enjoyable. I had a great time!!
~ Debbie Williamson, Streetsville, Ontario, Canada
Terri and I had an outstanding time and plan to come back again next winter with a group of friends. Hank sure knows his stuff and he and Matt were excellent all afternoon. See you down the trail.
