Public Health Update:
Covid-19 has shaken all of our daily norms and forced us to look at what we do and how we do it with our own and others health in the forefront.  The transition to this mindset has not been easy, but is essential to the new realities of the world.

Dogsledding at North Ridge Ranch is a fresh air experience that is enjoyed in small group numbers, where social distancing can be done.  We think it is a best case scenario for getting families and small groups of friends that love dogs, being outside, active and enjoying the beauty that Muskoka has to offer.

 

After reviewing numerous Health & Safety Guidelines from multiple sources across the province and country we have addressed this health crisis with the following protocols:

  1. We have reduced our tour capacity to accommodate for Phase 2 gathering numbers in Ontario (10 or less), while in Phase 3 we may increase the number slightly to accommodate a larger family if necessary.
  2. We have installed hand sanitizer at our outhouse toilet and inside our warming shelter and encourage all guests to use it.
  3. Only 1 group will be allowed in the warming shelter at a time.
  4. Social distancing is everyones personal responsibility and will be enforced during the lesson and at break time.
  5. We promote keeping your gloves/mittens on at all times and refrain from personal contact eg. Handshakes and hugs
  6. Guide and staff will wear a face mask when social distancing is not possible eg. Unhooking and hooking down sleds.
  7. Hand sanitizer will be available to guests at break time and the guide will wear a mask and hand sanitize prior to providing the midway snack on the half day tour.
  8. If radios are used on the tour they will be sanitized prior to use.
  9. Flow of guests coming and going will be monitored
  10. We no longer lend out additional winter clothing or blankets.  Guests need to come prepared.
  11. We sanitize all high touch surfaces prior to guest arrival and after the tour goes out
  12. We take the health and safety of our family and our guests very seriously.  Those that are not acting in the best interest of their own and others health will have their tour cancelled with no refund.

 

Please note that our protocols are subject to change at any time.


The winter of 2020/21 will be our first time operating with Covid-19 protocols, so please be patient with us.  If you notice anything or have any feedback for us around what we are doing, please kindly let us know what we should consider to improve.

 

Thank you and please be kind and patient with each other. GET OUTDOORS!
