Wolfsong Adventures is owned and operated by Jen Dale and was started in 1997 by John and Mary Thiel. Jen had worked for the Thiels for 10 years before purchasing Wolfsong in 2018. She has been dogsledding since 1995 when she bought her first Siberian Husky at the age of 12 and has worked in the outdoor adventure industry since 2002. Throughout her career as an outdoor enthusiast she has paddled over 1200 miles in northern Canada, kayak guided in Alaska and Lake Superior, and captained sailing vessels. But her real passion still remains with the dogs and enjoying engaging others in the wonder of the sport of dogsledding.
Chris Dale (Jen’s brother-in-law) joined the team in 2011 and is a great addition with his calm nature and can-do-anything abilities!
Jojo Weishar joined Wolfsong in 2019 after mushing for other dogsled operations in the Midwest. She also has worked as a kayak guide on Lake Superior and is a world traveler.
They have all mushed thousands of miles and trained hundreds of new mushers. This experience has proven that small group sizes, well trained, happy dogs and good trails are the components of a great mushing program.
Nestled in the hills overlooking Lake Superior in Bayfield County, Wisconsin is Wolfsong, Adventures in Mushing. “The best dogsledding trails in the Lower 48″ extend right from the kennel out into the remote hilly terrain of the Bayfield Peninsula, home of the Apostle Islands Dogsled Race. With an average of 150” of snow, we have good conditions from Christmas through late March every year.
Why does Wolfsong have the best trips in the business? Why does over half of our business come from return guests each year? Small group sizes for the most hands-on experience, great trails, and well-trained, happy dogs. For some, helping harness the dogs and riding in the sled is enough. Others want to learn everything they can about mushing and driving their own team. Everyone has a different reason for coming, and our trips satisfy them all.
