                 ABOUT US

 

 

 

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 29 Siberians and 3 Samoyeds. I live with my two sons, my partner Luiz 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 kennelled 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 every move. 

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 are tested for inherited eye deseases and the hips before being bred.

My lines were based on Innisfree (USA), Arctilight (Canada) and Chukchis a local line. Now they consist mainly of my own bred Kamchatka Siberians  for 3 or 4 generations with the introduction of  a new Innisfree line and a combination of Nanook Siberians - Canada from our friend Annette Dionne and Ciukci Siberians - Spain.

In recent years and with the help of Le-Anza Von Broemsen, my great friend,  Kamchatka Siberians  have achieved great recognition and we (Le-Anza and I)  have formed  a special  partnership based on trust, friendship and love for this wonderful breed. 

A dream of mine has always been to own Samoyeds and possibly breed my own. In 2008 I imported my first Samoyed from Vanderbilt in Canada. A year later Yuki came in from Polar Mist  in the USA. From these 2 lines, hopefully, I will start my own line of  Kamchatka Samoyeds.

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, but others,  like Pierre and Cindy Slabbert and teams of Kamchatka bred dogs successfully compete throughout the country. 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
