About Our Whitewater Beginnings....

How did Raft NH start offering whitewater rafting in NH?

Muddy Paw Sled Dog Kennel got its humble beginnings with the goal of providing a home for life and great care for the Alaskan Huskies that call our Jefferson, NH kennel home. Muddy Paw Sled Dog Kennel Huskies are second chance dogs or come from rescue situations. Our favorite thing to do over the past five  years has been to introduce our guests to the sport of dog  sledding. In order to provide the care our dogs deserved, we began offering safe and adventurous tours & clinics to generate the revenue to take care of these amazing animals. The response we've had from our guests has been incredible. Although mushing is primarily a winter sport, great dog care is year round! So, to help offset these costs and provide year round employment to our amazing guides... What does a bunch of adrenaline junkie dog mushers do when the snow melts, and the air warms up? We go whitewater rafting of course! Whitewater Rafting and Dog Sledding may seem like an odd combination at first, but the secret is out... Neil, the owner of our operation, and his son Kasey were rafting eons before they were mushing. (However, if anyone tells him his web designer used the word eons to describe his rafting experience, she will deny all knowledge.) If you choose to join us on one of our adventures, you may very well see some of the friendly faces you remember from the winter and some new faces as well.
