Neil Beaulieu

Founder, Musher & Raft Guide 

A born and raised "Mainer", Neil has over 22 years of guiding experience. When he isn't on the river or snowpacked trails behind a team of sled dogs, he is in the classroom sharing his knoweldge of science with elementary students.

If he were a dog, he would be a Malamute. He may look big and scary but really he is just a gentle giant.


Emma Burnell-Demers

Office Manager

AKA "the girl I spoke to earlier" is prepared to answer all your dog sledding questions! When Emma isn't answering the phone she is often playing with her one-eyed Australian Cattle Dog Kirby or new two-eyed Australian Cattle Dog Roxy.

If she was a dog, she would be an Australian Cattle Dog of course. Why? Because they are extremely smart, loyal to a fault, stubborn and refuse to give up until they get what they want. 


Beau De Mello

Musher & Raft Guide

After serving in the Marines, Beau now chooses to spend his free time perfecting his pirouettes at his in home ballet studio. When not dancing, he can be found on the trails trying to perfect his ability to howl in sync with the sled dogs.

If he were a dog, he would be a Poodle because they are fashionable and can rock the color pink! 


Brianna Boisselle


Hoping to one day open her own dog rescue, Brianna joined the Muddy Paw team. She is equally comfortable snuggling with one of her many favorite dogs or wrangling Malamutes that are bigger than she is.  

If she were a dog, she would be a Pit Bull because they are smart, loyal and loving.




Musher & Raft Guide

A self-proclaimed lover of unicorns, glitter, mushing dogs and white water! When she is not at the kennel trying to help our special needs dogs, you can find her on the river teaching you how to paddle in style.

Hannah is also spending the summer camping off the grid, and slowly turning a school bus into a mobile tiny home. 

Jaime Gray


When she isn’t preoccupied by her psychology studies Jaime can be found tending to her pet sea monkeys or reading Tarot cards for the sled dogs at the kennel. It has been said that Jaime new she was going to work for Muddy Paw 2 weeks before her first interview!

If she were a dog, she would be a Newfoundland because of their calm disposition and gentle nature. Plus they have awesome hair! 


Wesley Guerin

Musher & Raft Guide

When he isn’t perfecting his audition tape for “So You Think You Can Dance” he is watching dancing with the stars (or on the trail with our pawesome sled dogs). Wesley also spends his free time writing haiku poems for the 10 cats that live with him.

If he was a dog he would be a Great Dane since he is so tall and goofy. 


Dogs for Adoption

When a dog comes to our kennel it has a home for life. Most of our retired sled dogs wind up on our couch or going home with one of our mushers. While we'd like to keep them all, sometimes we know it's best for the dog to find them a spot next to a woodstove and an active family to be their new forever-family. Read more
