Breaking a lot of trail in the 2021 Two Rivers 200

Hey everyone!  Thanks for checking out dekesdogs.com, home of Nautique Sky Kennel and now veterans of the two longest races in the world.  The Yukon Quest and the Iditarod.  

2020/2021 will be the “Year of the Puppies” as we currently have 14-one year old kiddos learning each and everyday how to be great sled dogs.  

We will have a very busy and fun year competing in FIVE season events tallying around 1,550 miles of RACING!!!


12/12/20 – Denali Doubles 100: 9th Place (of 10)

12/19/20 – Solstice 100:  5th Place (of 19)

Race Season

                                                          04/01/21 – Kobuk 440                                                                      Cancelled for Nautique Sky.  Restrictions dealing with Covid-19 prevented us from making the entry list.  Next Year we Hope!

All non “pre season” races should have the GPS trackers, making it lots of fun (and addictive) to follow from home.  Can’t wait to have you join our team. Sponsor a dog, buy some booties, or if you are a business, get involved!

Thanks for following and lets do this together!  Join Nautique Sky and thank you for your support.

  1. Good luck to a former Western State graduate from one that graduated in 71. I’ll be following your race.

  2. Hi Deke, My husband and I met your mom last summer at the Yukon Quest office. She certainly inspired us to learn more about dog mushing. We bought some booties from her for the race but never heard which musher got our booties. We’re rookies at this! We’re from Montezuma, Ia. Say hi to your mom from us.
