Our Husky farm

Since the built of our first two kennels in the late summer of 2011, we have built more as our farm expanded. Now, in 2016, we have seven kennels with insulated doghouses. The doghouses have a flat roof, so the dogs can lie on top of them and jump from one to the next. The roofs can be opened, which makes it easy to clean out the wood chips when needed. Every doghouse has a large wooden porch where the dogs can rest in the shade.

We would love to welcome you to our husky farm. On our guided tour around the farm, you will hear all about dog sledding, dogcarts, our various activities, our Alaskan huskies, as well as their diet and activities.

Our litters

We started in 2011 with four Alaskan huskies and had our first litter in January 2012. The parents were Alfa and Berry. They gave us seven puppies – three girls and four boys. The pups shone a light through our dark winter. August of the same year gave us a second litter. Six healthy puppies were born. This time one girl and five boys. In April 2015, Kayla and Franz brought us six more adorable puppies – two girls and four boys. And in August 2016, Kayla and Franz gave us our most recent litter. Our farm has once more expanded with one girl and five boys.

With this most recent throw, our dog total has come up to 27 dogs. However, we are still a small, family-run husky-farm. The highest priority here is to give the best care to all of our dogs. They are fully vaccinated, regularly dewormed and checked upon by our veterinarian Lena Fodstad.

Dog ownership

​Our huskies live together in groups of two to five animals in large kennels. We ARE NOT keeping them in chains! This is different from many other husky farms. Our Huskies are only intermittently chained for feeding and sledding.

Food

We put great value on an appropriate, healthy and well balanced diet for our dogs. They are fed twice a day, mornings and evenings, and get their water changed daily. When the temperature drops below freezing, we give them a large portion of meat-broth with every meal and before every outing.

In their bowls, they’ll find a mix of high quality dry food, raw and cooked meat, from moose, reindeer, sheep, chicken, pork, beef or fish; vegetables, for example carrots, beets, apples and different herbs; with the addition of rice, eggs and salmon-oil. Our elderly dogs get an algae and glucosamin powder as additional nutritional supplements to maintain their joints.
