Title Program

If you and your dog love spending time on the trail, our Titling program is a great way to document your milestones. 
We know you’re proud of the miles you’ve put in harness, the training time, the early mornings at the trail head. You wouldn’t change those moments for anything. 
While there is no better sound than your boots crunching on freshly fallen snow, the smell of pine trees in the air, and the silence of an unused trail. 
The down side?
There’s no one to share it with. With our Title recognition program you can share your success with your friends. Track your progression, and improve your skills as a musher.
Are you ready to get started? 


Our Titles are a great way to track your miles on the trail. You can mix and match your (dog) teammates, dog sledding sport, and progress at your own pace. You can even earn a “Special Designation” on your Title by completing your last miles while participating in one of our Challenges (learn more below).

The best thing about our Title program?
It’s all at your pace! Only have one dog? No problem. Your dog likes to pull at a slower (freight) pace? No worries. Your dog isn’t a traditional sledding breed? No problem there either. Do you have a reactive dog? No problem, choose your trails wisely and you can have fun too! No matter your skill level, team size, or speed – this is an event where EVERYONE can succeed!
Each title costs US$19.97 to apply for, and they must be completed in order.

What Are Special Designation Titles?

Special Designation Titles are awarded with a “SD” affixed to the Title earned. They are awarded to any participant who completes their Title while participating in a Challenge. In order to qualify the Driver needs to finish the Challenge within the designated time as outlined in the Challenge rules & log the last mile of their Title during that period.

For example: If you were to start your first Wheel Dog run and log your first 3 miles (cumulative miles run: 3 miles), then enter the Bunny Run Challenge (a 10 mile challenge). You would have to log and complete the Challenge before the Challenge end date. So, lets say you log various runs, ending with 11 miles logged before the Challenge ends (cumulative miles run: 14 miles).

You would then earn your Wheel Dog Title with the Special Designation noted (WD-SD).

And you’d have 4 miles logged towards your Wheel Dog Bronze Title.

Why is this important?

You don’t have to stop logging miles to wait for your next Challenge to start before you can log miles again. Just finish your Title inside a Challenge (and finish the Challenge within the deadline).
