Chocpaw Expedition’s Statement Regarding the Documentary “Sled Dogs” Directed by Fern Levitt/CCI Entertainment Ltd
Chocpaw Expeditions would like to inform you about a new documentary coming out December 3rd (Whistler Film Festival) entitled “Sled Dogs” directed by Fern Levitt. As we understand it, Fern Levitt has painted an unfair negative and inhumane brush across the entire dog sledding industry. Paul Reid (previous Owner) passed away in October of this year. It is tragic that the timing of this documentary doesn’t allow for Paul Reid himself to express his passion and care for the Chocpaw Expeditions sled dogs over the last 40 years.
Chocpaw Expeditions provides care for our dogs 365 days a year, and we employ a staff team specifically for this purpose. We know all of our dogs by name and personality; they are part of our family.
Chocpaw Expeditions has a successful adoption program.
Chocpaw Expeditions has the support from of our veterinarian. He can attest to the quality of CARE Chocpaw Expeditions provides for our dogs. The veterinarian is a member of the College of Veterinaries of Ontario (CVO) and American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accredited Veterinary hospital (only 12% of Veterinary hospitals in North America are AAHA accredited)
Chocpaw Expeditions has the support of our local Mayor and By-law officer who provide Chocpaw Expeditions with our kennel licence and kennel inspections.
The financial priorities have been and continue to be the care, feeding and medical welfare of our dogs.
Chocpaw Expeditions is proud of the educational and wilderness trips we provide. We have worked with The Duke of Edinburgh Award program for 10 years, The Canadian Army Cadets, the British Royal Air Force, The Ontario Provincial Police, Military Police Regiment and numerous private schools in the greater Toronto area and elsewhere.
If you have further questions or require additional proof of the above stated, Chocpaw Expeditions would be happy to provide it.
