The pack

We live together with thirty sled dogs (Siberian Huskies, Canadian Inuit Dogs and Yukon Huskies).

Sled dogs are highly social and gregarious animals. A species-appropriate pack life, the social coexistence and the greatest possible amount of freedom are just as important for these animals as is intensive contact and working together with humans.

Here in Sweden our pack lives in a fenced in forest area of roughly four thousand square meters, where our house is located, too. The dogs have plenty of space and can move around freely, but can also interact with us whenever they want.

It is always a glorious experience to just watch our animals and see how they are enjoying themselves. The extensive sled tours through unspoiled nature and working as a team round out the perfect life for us.

Kevejo

Kevejo came to us from an animal shelter in Wörgl in 2011 and has settled in quite well by now. He is a bit of a clown and needs a lot of human affection. He enjoys pulling the sled but is not always willing to give it his all.

Cherokee

We got Cherokee from Ragne and Leif, Vesterelva & Viddas Husky in Norway. He is a quiet, cuddly, very intelligent, hardworking and diligent husky, a real stroke of luck. He has evolved into a reliable leader.

Nakima

Nakima is a Yukon Husky, an almost forgotten sled dog breed from the Yukon and Mackenzie River area. She is a very large dog (the pack’s largest) with an athletic frame very similar to that of a wolf. She is still very young and playful, but loves to run in the team and has a boundless willingness to work.

Nayelee

Nayelee is Nakima’s smaller but also cheekier sister. A great, endearing and very cuddly young husky, who – together with Cherokee – has evolved into a reliable leader.

Sharak

After the death of his father Acoma, Sharak has been an excellent alpha dog for many years. During the past few months he has retreated from this position step by step and Akemo, one of his closest allies, has taken over for him. They still get along well and Sharak visibly enjoys his retirement.

Chilko

A very strong and vivacious dog, who likes to be the center of attention when guests come to visit. He can never get enough strokes.

Chennocha

She is Chilko’s sister but is the exact opposite in terms of temperament – a very calm and patient dog with a lovable character.

Navaya

Just like her half sister Chennocha she is a very calm and cuddly dog, and also an excellent worker.

Suma

Navaya’s sister is a clever but also dominant dog, who – together with Umiak – has been a leader for many years. Now, with almost ten years, she feels more comfortable in the second row, but is still motivated to give it everything.

Yumano

Yumano is a strong, persevering dog and the brother of Suma and Navaya. He has been Sharak’s “bodyguard” for many years, but prefers a quieter life now.

Umiak

Though Sharak’s brother is already eleven years old he is still in excellent shape. He still likes to be part of the team, but has given up his position as a leader, preferring the second row now.

Ayana

A quiet, reserved dog, who – together with Sharak – has been a great and reliable leader for many years. Nowadays, with over eleven years, she prefers to run alongside the sled. In the pack she often pulls the strings behind the scenes, especially when it comes to educating the puppies and younger dogs.

Tanisha

Tanisha came to us from Canada in September 2009. She is a real “original husky” – rather shy and with very primordial behavior. In the pack she is a very social dog and a diligent runner. It took her quite some time to build confidence in us, though.

Tamaya

She is Tanisha’s sister and when you look at her you could easily confuse her with a small black Canadian wolf. She is a lovely dog, who becomes more and more approachable and also curious every day.

Atreju

He is Tanisha’s offspring and a real giant with incredible charisma. He knows exactly where his strengths lie and acts accordingly. He is a very self-confident dog.

Maya

An exceptional dog and our very best leader. She is ready to lead the team and take them safely to their destination in any given situation, whether it is a snow storm, a hurricane on the mountain, deep snow or almost insurmountable steep slopes.

Abenaki

Another one of Tanisha’s offsprings. He is a strong and persevering runner, but also affectionate and cuddly.

Naskapi

Over the years he has evolved into a confident, proud husky and has got what it takes to be a great alpha dog one day.

Kenai

Kenai is one of Tamaya’s offsprings, who is just as shy as his mother. He enjoys running and is starting to let himself get caressed by strangers.

Sitka

He is Kenai’s brother and together with Maya our best leader. The two of them harmonize extremely well and master even the most difficult situations calmly and confidently.

Eowyn

She is a Canadian Inuit Dog, a young, very clever and most of all fearless dog, who is already running in lead position, next to Naskapi.

Arwen

Eowyn’s sister is a clever and rather dominant dog, who’s got what it takes to become the new alpha female.

Akemo

After Sharak’s retirement Akemo has taken over his position as alpha. Over the past few years he has been a strong partner for Sharak and is now ready to fulfill his duties as leader of the pack. They both still get along well and it is always fascinating to observe that only the cleverest and most sovereign animals are accepted as alphas by the pack.

Anuk

He is now one year old (das mit dem 1 Jahr – bitte gerne auch beim Deutschen ändern, danke!) and with 33 kg the heaviest of Atreju´s and Eowyn´s offspring. He is quite dominant.

Aki

He is the smallest male dog, he loves to cuddle and is very clever.

Ikuma

When he was born, he was the smallest one, but meanwhile he developed really good.

Inuk

He is a gentle giant.

Nitika

She is a small, very gentle dog and she is fast like the wind.

Kaya

She always wants to take part at everthing we do.

Yuma

With 32 kg she is the largest female dog from Atreju´s and Eowyn´s offspring, but nevertheless cautious and shy.
