Logistics

Tours last approximately 1.5 hours for a group of 2. Plan to add half an hour to your visit for every additional guest.

Cobble Hill Kennel is located on Sheldon Lane, in Middlebury, VT 05753. Simply enter Sheldon Lane into Google Maps and follow our signs when you arrive!

Wear clothing that you’re okay getting dirty. Our trail gets muddy after it rains and the dogs can kick dirt up at us.

Fall tours are in the training season – when many of our dogs are still learning. This gives guests a unique insight into how we best prepare our dogs for races! Please be patient if we have to pause the ride to fix a tangle or get our dogs on the right trail.

$80 per person

$40 kids and students

$20 per guest without a ride

(Plus tax)

Minimum $150 per group

The Fall Training Tour is available all day on the weekends and after noon on weekdays. We’re very flexible, so give us a call!
