Is there any dog-sledding in the Bernese Oberland?

I'll be based in Wengen for a week in July, and was wondering if anyone knows of any dog-sledding in the region? I know there used to be dog-sledding at Jungfraujoch, but was told that it is no longer there. I believe there is also Glacier3000 in Gstaad, but that is almost 3 hours one way by train from Wengen. Probably too far.

Anyone know of any sledding closer to Wengen this time of year? My kids are crazy for sled dogs (we have one), which is why I'm asking. Thanks!

These people have huskies and organize events:

No. Even these folks with the website kleeblatt refered to only offer walks with the huskies for kids in summer (that cost 50 Sfr per child!). My guess is that it is simply too hot weather for the huskies in the flat land in summer to do strenuous sledding tours.

If there's nothing at Jungfraujoch or any other glacier, then I am afraid you're out of luck.
