Welcome to our family!

Our dogs are the centre of our world. Our 40 Alaskan Huskies make up our extended family and although they are working dogs, not pets, we treat them with the same respect and care that any pet owner would be proud of. And we think it shows in their behaviour. Our dogs are extremely friendly, obedient and good around children. They are also hard working, loyal and energetic! When it’s time to run they are jumping and barking ready to go. When they are resting in their yards, they are usually playful but calm and quiet. Occasionally you will hear them howl; perhaps a thank you for their dinner or just a show of solidarity but mostly they like the calm, peaceful atmosphere as much as our guests do.

Our dogs live in outside dog yards of at least 24 square metres with houses that are insulated and protected against the cold and wet. Even when the temperature hits minus 30, our dogs are warm and comfortable in their houses with plenty of straw and sawdust to make a cosy bed. We keep them in pairs as they prefer the company of other dogs but we also make sure they have a space of their own should they want it. Sweden has very high standards when it comes to animal welfare and we strive to maintain even higher standards of care than are required.

We feed our dogs with the highest quality dog food on the market; a special dry food by Royal Canin made specifically for working sled dogs. We mix this with high grade raw meat, usually sourced straight from the slaughter house with nothing added. Depending on a dog’s individual requirements, the temperature, or other conditions, we may also supplement their feed with salmon oil or animal fat. In the winter, our 40 dogs can easily chomp their way through 20kg of dry food and 30kg of meat or more a day! It makes them expensive to keep but to us they are worth every penny.

Each of our dogs is special and they all have very individual personalities. Here’s a small introduction to the team.
