40 Duke of Ed Canoe participants

We are pleased to say our summer is wrapping up with 40 Duke of Ed Participants from Bronze, Silver and Gold joining us for CANOE trips. Our Bronze trip came home on Monday, our two Silver trips are just unpacking gear, and our two groups of Gold are spending their final night in the Algonquin Wilderness. Mother nature has been fickle this summer, however these participants have experience great weather thus far.

 

A huge thank you to our great summer guiding staff : Kaity, Steph, Donna, Yves and Jeff!

Adoptions Update

We have had the most successful year for adoptions to date. Many of our sled dogs have found wonderful new homes. Some are staying local and the Chocpaw staff still get to see them from time to time, others have flown to Europe!

Our adoption program will continue to move forward as we continue to reduce the size of our kennel.

Please continue to share our Facebook Adoption Page, as all of your help on social media has helped get more dogs adopted.

Adoption Update: Rhonda and Cricket

We are most pleased to hear that both Rhonda and Cricket have settled into their new home on a ranch near Kingston. They haven’t had much snow this season, but the dogs seem to be entertained by the other animals on the ranch. Specifically Cricket likes the guinea pigs. They have an outdoor straw fort and beds inside the house that they can access at their leisure via a doggie door.

We like to take the time to appreciate not only our sled dogs here at Chocpaw Expeditions, but also our incredibly talented dog-sled guiding team this season. The bar is only set to high at Chocpaw, we expect the best of the best and only those that can persevere can make it as a guide. This team has surpassed the teams before them in excellence. Wish Paul was here to see what has been a accomplished in his absence. These guides are keeping the dream alive.

 

Thank you: Andrew, Jamie, Chantal, Kaity, Heather, Maria, Matt, Phil, Brad, Jeremy and Steph.
