Expedition Wolf was born out of passion for dogsleddings and huskies. It came about in the mid nineties just as the Mont Tremblant resort was expanding. It’s founder, Abitibian Gaëtan Lambert has owned sled dogs for over forty years.
Originally the pack consisted of roughly twenty huskies and a couple of guides. Today, the family counts 100 huskies half of which were born within Expedition Wolf, the others being abandoned dogs which we have retrieved.
As members of Adventure Ecotourism Quebec and in strict compliance with MAPAQ and SPCA norms, Expedition Wolf aims to be a beacon in the dog sled world.
Our goal is to offer a safe ans enjoyable dogsledding hike for the entire family
Our dog pack consists of 100 huskies half of which were born within Expedition Wolf, the others being abandoned dogs which we have retrieved.
90% of our females and 30% of our males are sterilized to control birth rate.
Our dogs are vermifuged, vaccinated and cared for by a team of veterinarians from Mont-Tremblant.
Retired dogs are kept well after their active duty days. They are excellent at training juniors on short distances. They are kept in heated dog houses during the winter season.
Many dogs we have are now retired. We keep them all. Many of them are rescue dogs and have lived in houses in the past.
So many of them could be adopted and have a well-deserved retirement.
