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 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.


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 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 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.


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.


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.


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


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


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 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.


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.


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 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.


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.


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.


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.


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


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 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.


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.


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.


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


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.


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.


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


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


He is a gentle giant.


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


She always wants to take part at everthing we do.


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