We are a small kennel in North Devon
We are proudly owned by four Alaskan Malamutes and four Siberian Huskies, some from puppies and some rescued. We also fund raise for The Siberian Husky Club GB Welfare.
We are members of the Alaskan Malamute Club of Untied Kingdom, The Alaskan Malamute Working Association and the Siberian Husky Club of GB.
Ruth first met Paul in Germany over 25 years ago. Even then Paul had a desire to own an Alaskan Malamute. Ruth never heard of them up until then. Very soon his desire also became Ruth's.
We were living in Germany at that time and although we desperately wanted a dog we decided to wait until we returned to the UK.
Once our family was complete the desire to own one of these fantastic dogs grew stronger and stronger. It was then that we met Sue Williams who introduced us to the first Malamutes we'd seen in the U.K, Nico and Kodi. Since then our lives have changed and Sue has become one of our greatest friends. Sadly Nico & Kodi are no longer with us. We are very proud to have known them.
Sue kindly introduced us to Barbara Stanier of the Arctictrek Kennel, from where we obtained our first Malamute in the summer of 1998, and we've never looked Back. Thanks Barbara and of course Sue. A couple of years later we fell in love with our first Siberian Husky, Wi-Ski who was being fostered by Barbara on behalf of the Siberian Husky Club GB Welfare, and our love for this breed grew.
All our dogs have been trained in Basic Obedience, as well as in harness and some in the show ring. We believe in Kind, Effective, Reward Based Training using the clicker. We truly believe our success in owning a Multiple Dog Household is down to this method of training and not the old dominance training methods once used and generally associated with Nordic Breeds.
Ruth also runs her own Dog Training Business, click on her logo to check it out.
