Kamchatka was registered in 1992 after owning a few pet Siberians Huskies, a rough Collie, a Rottweiller and an Afghan, and deciding that this was definitely the breed for me. My home has since grown to house 20 Siberians and one Weimaraner. I live with my two sons and the dogs on the outskirts of town on a beautiful and peaceful 2 acre small holding in Henley on Klip.
My Siberian Huskies are brought up in a home
environment and all run together as a pack and as they should if the temperament
is correct. They have full access to the property. No dogs are kenneled unless a
bitch is on heat. I personally show, train, groom, feed and see to their needs.
All dogs are allowed into the house in my presence and every evening they spend
at least 4 hours with me, either sleeping, playing or just quietly watching my
My puppies are raised inside my house in a room next
to my bedroom until they are ready to go into a covered run outside. The ones I
keep, remain house puppies until old enough to join the pack ( 4 months). They
are all house trained and properly socialised. This is a very clean breed. All
of my Siberians have their eyes tested for Glaucoma and Cataracts and the hips
ex-rayed before being bred.
My lines are based on Innisfree (USA), Arctilight
(Canada) and some established local lines. Every Siberian Husky is successfully
worked in harness and some have raced competitively in the past in Isdra
organised events. These days we only run for pleasure. I believe that a show dog
should be properly conditioned and well muscled as this is a working breed.
Kamchatka Siberians Huskies have been consistently recognised in the show ring by South African and International Judges for their correct type, outstanding movement and beauty.
A SPECIAL MENTION MUST BE MADE IN MEMORY OF MY LATE HUSBAND WES FOR HIS UNDERSTANDING, COMMITMENT AND TOTAL SUPPORT FROM THE VERY BEGINNING AND ALWAYS.
I THANK YOU
