Nicola & Stuart
I have been around dogs for all of my life, I was brought up in a family that always had pets and amongst ponies, rabbits, guinea pigs and cats we always had dogs.
Having wanted a Malamute since childhood but only really knowing them through books and occasional sightings, I got my first real taster of them when Stuart and I visited Barbara at the Arctictrek kennel in 1990.
We agreed that we had to have one in our family but we decided that due to our work and travel commitments at that time we should wait.
We were finally in a position to offer a stable home to a Malamute when I started working from home, after completing our research we joined lists in early 1999 and waited …… The wait finally came to an end in 2001 when Indy came to join us. We originally had hoped for just one pet Mal, but before the wait was over and while spectating at shows for a couple of years, we thought it would be a good idea to enter this world.
Once we owned one Malamute we soon realised that having one just really wasn’t enough and since broadening our interest in sled dogs in general we found we were also drawn to the Greenland Dog, hence we are now the proud owners of a growing mixed pack of Mals & Greenlands.
We have multiple show awards ranging from Multi Best In Show, CC, Multi Stud Book Numbers, Groups Wins & Places to Best In Match.
We have multiple working titles on our dogs.
We have attended/presented multiple seminars in both of our breeds.
I am a CC judge in Alaskan Malamutes & have judged in the UK & in the USA.
We have served & continue to serve on both breed club various committees.
We are both breed note writers for our breeds.
We are both full members of the Kennel Club.
We are members of:
The activities that we regularly enjoy with our dogs include, conformation, weightpull, in harness, agility, back packing, obedience, breed booths, but most of all, as well loved pets.
Thank you for taking the time to visit our website dedicated to the two breeds that we love.
