During downtown Burlington’s Ice Festival, you and your family can venture a few doors down to snuggle & hug one of the members of the Door County Sled Dogs at Mercantile Hall on Sunday, December 16th.
The Door County Sled Dogs, a 501(c)3, provides educational presentations year-round as well as providing weekly dog sled rides at Milwaukee’s Whitnall Park on Saturday and Sunday, 11am to 1pm, starting Jan. 7th through March weather permitting.
General Information about the Crew:
For all interested in rescues, sled dogs, and community, the Door County Sled Dogs are a recreational sled dog team (all rescues) consisting of nine purebred Siberian Huskies, two Alaskan Huskies, one very special collie/husky mix and two human mushers: Rick Desotelle and Bonnie Ulrich. Our dogs are a “recreational mid-distance” team that participates in races, fun runs, leisurely trail rides, and many special community events. In addition, since the huskies are also pets who love children, people, and running, they provide dog sled rides to the general public on weekends in both Milwaukee and Door County – wherever they happen to be at a particular time!
