About us and our Dogs
We are a couple of Aussies who left Australia many years ago to see the world and have ended up living in Northern Sweden.
Living in England was where we had our first encounter of being owned by a Arctic breed, The Alaskan Malamute. I say owned because thats exactly how it is ,these dogs own your soul. We went on in later years to the more traditional Arctic breed , Greenland dogs, which we have in our kennel today.
For 12 years we struggled to work our dogs in the english weather, getting up at 4am to get even the mildest temperature to work our dogs in.We were getting very discouraged with the weather in England, so i found us a home in northern sweden where we could have winter holidays to run our dogs in brilliant conditions of temperature and snow .
After another 3 years of travelling from england to northern sweden for 8 weeks of fun in the snow we decided to leave England,which wasnt a hard decision and move permantly to Northern sweden for our dogs.
The Greenland dog is thought to be one of the worlds oldest dog breeds and for centuries it has been a vital transport and hunting tool for the Inuit people. Even to this date, it is a vital necessity in North Greenland. These dogs are extremly energetic, mentally robust and vigilant. It is an overall curious dog with a strong pack mentality and extremly devoted to people it respects.
The Greenland dog is a immensley powerfull dog, able to pull extremly heavy loads over great distances.
These dogs have a coat consisting of rough ,wiry hairs covering a soft and thick undercoat. This coat protect the dogs in the harshest weather of -50 degrees and allows them to thrive outside all year round.
