Silver Sage Mushing
Linda Janssen and her partner Dave Harman started kicking around an idea of a new business in 2010. With Ashton's history of the American Dog Derby and their love of mushing, they felt that they were ready to share that love with others. The business took off by word of mouth from other mushers. And it was done; the Silver Sage Mushing was in business. Already giving rides and tours to people from Ashton to Minnesota to France!
Silver Sage Mushing offers sled dog rides and tours in Idaho's high desert country near the Tetons and Yellowstone Park. The entire business is a team effort. Caring for and training their 28 dogs keeps them busy year around. Most of the dogs are Alaskan Huskies and two of them are Seppala Siberian Husky.
Linda and Dave have built a "dog camp" west of town where they keep their dogs. This is the home of Silver Sage Adventures. When you call to do business with them, part of the adventure will be getting a tour of dog camp.
Their business is to excite and give everyone an opportunity to learn that there is more to being a musher than just standing on the back of a sled and yelling a command. They will give you a short 101 mushing course on what work it takes to be a musher, as well as a kennel tour to meet and greet the dogs. One of Dave's jobs is to groom the trails. They have their own groomer, so Dave grooms the trails and checks for wildlife before your adventure begins.
Just give Linda or Dave a call and they will be happy to take you for the ride of your life! We live in prime country for dog racing. The Silver Sage Mushing is family friendly fun! They have various packages that are reasonably priced for different distances and wants. Whether you prefer to ride and enjoy the scenery or are ready to learn how to be a musher yourself!
Give Linda a call @ 208-313-5654 or Dave @ 208-709-3549 today before the snow is gone and enjoy the hospitality and fun that Silver Sage Mushing has to offer!
