About Howling Dog Tours

Located on the doorstep of the Banff National Park and only fifteen minutes from Banff, Howling Dog Tours is owned and operated by Rich and Dana Bittner, and is based in the Canadian Rockies resort town of Canmore, Alberta, Canada.

With over 15 years in business, they started their dog mushing career on the sprint racing circuit in Western Canada. Since 1989, they have participated in many competitive events, ranging from 4 to 150 mile races. They’ve raced throughout western Canada, and after living in Yellowknife, NWT, for 4 years, settled in Canmore, which has been the base of their mushing operations since 1995.

Howling Dog Tours is a family operation; Rich and Dana believe that everyone should experience the thrill of a dog sled racing team and the pristine beauty of the Canadian Rockies. Their two daughters, Karly and Sara, born and raised in Canmore, are often seen helping the crew at the site or the dog yard – especially when it comes to working with puppies!

The Howling Dog Tours office is located at Unit 105, 712 Bow Valley Trail in Canmore, Alberta. All tours take place in the beautiful Spray Lakes Provincial Park, approximately 30 km south east of Banff on the Smith-Dorian Hi-way.
