There is no comparison between us and other breeders. We stand alone in the way we raise malamutes. Our dogs are very well socialized, very active away from home, go on amazing adventures hiking and 4 wheeling. Some of our dogs have done years of successful competitive weight pulling with success in the International Championship as well as Regional and through the AMCA and IWPA. Not just talk - We did it !
Some have done parades. Not just talk - We did it !
Our malamutes live a life with a large fenced yard but also many off leash adventures as well.
Here are some of our older adventures. Our newer adventures can be found in newer year pages
Not just talk - we do it !
Our dogs do have their own kennels but they are also crate trained and house trained and take turns inside and outside. Our home is designed around the dogs so they can come inside, go outside, sit on the deck with family and to the fenced yard freely.
Our dogs also get along with each other as a big family even though they are all in tact. We have several generations here that have been raised this way. No doubt it is making a difference in our puppies.
If you are considering a new puppy, this should be important to you !
There is no way to raise malamutes to be so well balanced mentally and physically with out this type of life style. If they are not socialized and taken out into public and on adventures, there is no way to know how they would handle situations. They can not be well rounded if they are limited to living life at home only.
If a breeder can not handle their dogs as a pack, take them places, do things with them away from home to insure they are well balanced. Spend quality time doing things with them as part of a family, they should not be breeding. This of course, is just my opinion. Temperament is passed down from both parents. Yes, a great deal has to do with the way the new owner raises the pup but best to start with a good pup.
Know where your pup is coming from !
We have 2 other sources of income. Kurt has a good steady year round reliable job that is more than adequate to support us. I also have monthly income. We do not need or rely on sales to support us or our dogs. I do feel this is very important.
Our dogs do NOT support us !
It takes real dedication to achieve this with a large pack of malamutes. It takes something special to be able to raise a pack the way I do, specially off leash.
I have had this website since around 2008 / 2009, I have been documenting our dogs since then.
Here are some old pages of pictures from 2008 - 2011
Here are the most current pictures, this page is updated with new pictures often.
When malamutes are spiritually healthy, this is what they look like
