About Brad, Leah & Brea
Brad has been running the trails of Muskoka for over 25 yrs on the back of a dogsled. He started out as a guide with a tour operator working at Deerhurst Resort and in 1995 he expanded his horizons and started his own business and taking over the contract at Deerhurst Resort. With Brad in the drivers seat he expanded his operations to other resorts throughout the region and started offering half day, full day and overnight tours. Around 2001 Brad began downsizing and moving away from resort tour operations and focused more on offering personally guided tours from his own property in Huntsville, Muskoka. The past 10 years have been spent building his kennel into something that he is proud of and can call his own. Brad’s hard work and accomplishments can be seen in his loving and hard working huskies that guests and himself are privileged to ride behind on their sleds.
Leah had her first taste of dogsledding while attending Lakehead University on a 10 day dogsledding expedition. She instantly fell in love with the sport and decided she needed more of it in her life. After graduating Leah started to work as a guide with Winterdance Dogsled Tours in Haliburton where she developed her confidence and knowledge of dogsled touring. After 6 years of guiding Leah moved away to Huntsville to explore new territory and met up with Brad. Leah has partnered with Brad and enjoys entering races with the dogs when the opportunities arise. Leah enjoys dogsledding, but gets the most enjoyment out of interacting with and working along side these wonderful animals.
Brea came to us just in time for the dogsled season in 2014! She is a happy girl outside and in the dog yard. She loves helping out and can often be seen picking up harnesses, dusting snow off sleds, and of course saying hi to all the dogs and guests. She is an up and coming little musher and is very quickly learning about the musher lifestyle from mom and dad.
