OUR HISTORY

Husky Power Dogsledding's Legacy

Husky Power Dogsledding’s humans are honored and thrilled that the legacy of their sled dogs and touring business will carry on. At one point 25 Huskies lived, loved and worked at their Bumble Bee Road home—bringing immense joy and education tothousands of appreciative guests annually. All were born and bred to pull dog-sleds and wheeled-dog-carts… along with bicycles, ATVs and jogging people. Nothing can beat the manic excitement of a working husky seeing its harness arrive-- except perhaps, the massive number of appreciative murmurs, screams of joy and heart-felt rub downs given to them by everyone from 5 to 90 year-olds after their tour. My husband, Mike, and I conceived of the business after he retired from 32 years as a Marine Corps officer. We wanted to open a “little business” together and fell in love with the notion of providing guests with an unforgettable experience through our passion of dogsledding. We dug deep for two years before determining that we would work within our absolutely favorite thing to do… MUSH behind a team of beautiful dogs! We spent two seasons learning deeper skills by apprenticing at large mushing kennels, then created our own adventure business which provided tours that included an in-depth educational element as well. The Deep Creek Lake area offered excellent weather, trails, beauty and potential—back in my home state of MD. Guests could chose to watch others mush or go full-out learning to drive their own team. Everyone got to spend time with every individual husky—one of their favorite elements. What a rousing experience for all involved. Every visitor to Husky Power left totally amazed by the energy, strength, and love-to-pull the huskies portrayed. (Some guests remain good friends still today.) Each one learned many surprises—such as mushers don’t need snow (the dogs do need cold temperatures); the dogs pull an amazing array of equipment; there are short sprint dogsled races to watch in many states; how all the different brakes work (the most important element); the history of the sport and each dog they watched; and much, much more. Apprentices of our own lived with us to learn the skills of the sport just as we did. Some 600 acres of gorgeous trails surrounded us, and many miles we created--including those in our own backyard that remain. After about 15 years of a full calendar, including motorcoach tour bus groups visiting and school presentations, it was time to retire again. The “little business” was a true blessing for all involved yet became a bit much for our age. The remaining huskies were rehomed to couch-potato status, the equipment sold, and the dog yard planted with wildflowers. Yet the memories they made as being the stars of the farthest south mushing tour business will never fade. I trust you will enjoy their videos and photos during your visit to their paradise. I know you’ll feel their spirit during your stay! Regards, Linda Lee Herdering
