Providing a Dog Powered Adaptive Experience

By Guest Blogger Steve Vick, President, Noble Paws, Inc.

Living with a disability can make it difficult for people to participate in outdoor activities. Combine that with the 20 below temperatures of an Alaskan winter and the outdoor opportunities become even more limited.

This is where Noble Paws, a nonprofit in Fairbanks, Alaska, comes in. Our goal is to teach people with disabilities how to be a dog musher. We provide a service that opens an opportunity to a new experience.

THE SERVICE

If you have ever owned a horse, the chances are you boarded that horse at a stable. For a monthly fee, your horse was fed, her stall was cleaned and she was given regular outings to a pasture to graze and run. You had access to a tack room where your saddle and riding gear were stored. And you had a trail or riding-ring where you could exercise your horse.

Picture Noble Paws in much the same way as a horse stable – except we have dogs instead of horses. We train the dogs to run, stop and turn on command. We feed them a nutritionally balanced diet. We supply our visitors with winter gear and dog sleds. And we have access to miles of winter trails right next to our five acres of land.

This is our service. A fully functioning dog team made available to anyone with a disability for free. We can take people for short one-time rides, just for the experience of being pulled in a sled, or we can teach someone to run their own team in a short series of lessons.

Experience Alaska Native culture firsthand in Anchorage
Alaska Natives make up about 16 percent of Alaska’s total population, including more than 200 rural communities separated by vast
distance and unique geographical regions. Visitors to Alaska can experience the state’s unique Alaska Native culture through
crafts, festivals, museums and music. Located in Anchorage, the Alaska Native Heritage Center provides a cultural and educational
institution for Alaskans and visitors. Programs in both academic and informal settings, including workshops, demonstrations and
guided tours, are available

Alaska Bald Eagle Festival takes flight
The Inside Passage community of Haines offers a perfect sampling of all things Alaska – history, scenic beauty, arts, culture, wildlife
and lifestyle. Located on the shores of America’s longest fjord, Lynn Canal, and surrounded by glacier-covered mountains, Haines
has unlimited opportunities for recreation – from biking, hiking and skiing to a variety of excursions on local rivers and lakes. One of
the most notable traits of this coastal town is the striking number of resident bald eagles. Year round, Haines is home to about 300
bald eagles and each fall the largest gathering of bald eagles occurs when around 3,500 of the birds gather in Haines during the aptly
named Alaska Bald Eagle Festival.

Alaska’s national parks now available on iTunes

Now travelers can get a flavor of Alaska’s national parks without leaving home. Thanks to a series of video podcasts available on
iTunes and local National Park Service Web sites, viewers can catch a glimpse of what three of Alaska’s most popular national
parks have to offer. By searching for the parks in the iTunes podcast store, visitors can learn about dinosaurs (and more modern
residents) of Denali National Park, gain an in-depth look at science and research at Kenai Fjords National Park and watch bears in
Katmai National Park. The video podcasts began airing on iTunes last fall, and the newest videos premiered in October 2008. Both
the iTunes and nps.gov podcasts are available free of charge. Click HERE to learn more about Alaska’s national parks.
