Sled Dog Rides in Northern Michigan

We provide rides at our home kennel in Cadillac Michigan.  Book your Tour Only today.

Shemhadar Kennels offers family fun runs in the midst of wooded acreage and fields for those looking to get a taste of dog sledding. We are located in Cadillac, which is about 1 1/2 hours north of Grand Rapids and about 3 hours from Detroit. Come for 1 to 4 hours of learning, riding and sharing in the sled dog adventure. Each group is different, so just call us or review your options on the Dog Sled Rides Page and we will see how we can help you have fun.

Our kennel is in the midst of 80+ acres where beauty abounds. Our rides are 2-3 miles long. The short distance allows us to have multiple people ride in a short time. Each tour package will include cookies and cocoa, and lots of barking! 

Go to the Dog Sled Rides Page to find the rides that are best for you.

Since we also actively race, our weekends are limited. Call or email for openings. Talk to you soon.  We look forward to our adventure together!

Reservation Donation to book an Adventure: In order to book a ride with Shemhadar, there is a $250 Non Refundable Donation to the Kennel.  There is a great deal of time and effort in order to coordinate all the rides and reservations, and a year-round expense to feed and look after the dogs.  If for some reason you cancel or the weather prohibits a safe riding experience, this helps the kennel with dog food and expenses.
