Our Siberian huskies are working sled dogs and they are a part of our family. In the summer we hang out on the beach or swim in the lake, attend dogs shows, taking runs late nights when the temperatures go down and have a lot of fun with them. In the winter between tours and guests, we race the dogs and compete in working trials. We run them all year around, except 3-4 weeks off training during the hottest part of summer, to keep them happy and fit for the winter season. To us they are not just sled dogs, they are our life.
We only have purebred Siberian Husky and they are registered in the Swedish Kennel Club. All the puppies that we have breed carries our internationally recognized FCI kennel name Sheza Classic. Our puppies are born and raised indoors and live with us in the house until they are big enough to jump out from the puppy pen and race through the house. We believe they benefit from the close contact with the family as we also want all dogs to be able to live part time indoors when they are adults as well as the human socialization the puppies get from living the first months of their life in the kitchen.
Outside we have big kennels almost at our doorstep and all kennels are bigger than the Swedish law requires for animal protection. As a complement to the kennels our whole property is enclosed by a wooden fence so the dogs can run free and play under supervision. In the kennels the dogs have isolated doghouses filled with wooden wool to keep them warm and dry. There are also raised sleeping areas with roof and cover from the wind to give them the possibility to choose between different sleeping areas. Still, as the polar dog they are, they often prefer to sleep out in the snow. The dogs that sets the real polar coat, really don't like to sleep indoors in wintertime since they have too much fur to withstand the heat indoors and instead, we give them extra attention in the kennels and in the yard.
The main reason that we decided to work the dogs with guests is mostly to be able to really let them work as they are bred to do. In winter we spend almost all the time with the dogs, and we want to preserve the working Siberian Husky as a sled dog beyond all else. We find that the true working type is declining, and many are now breed for companion purpose.
So, come and have a run with our heroes and let them show you the joy and happiness they have for running. Experience the nature and the cold, the snow and the energy of the arctic dogs doing what they love the most!

Gramse -big, fast and oh so sweet
Speed, power, endurance and it seems, leadmaterial. He is one of our biggest dogs with his 64 cm and already one of our best in the team. Before the run he will jump and scream just to tell us to go NOW! Therefore it's important that our guests wait to say hello to him until after the run, since we wouldn't want you to be knocked to the ground. Gramse lives for running and would run for days if we would let him.

Hubbe - The big bear
Big and strong and the kindest soul that walks this earth. He loves kids and about everyone that say hello to him. He'll jump and lick your face, trying to get you down to the ground so he can really give you a facial wash!! He gives 110 % no matter what so I really need to watch him carefully so he don't get to hot or get any injuries. He will always try to run just a bit faster and taking a lot of weight so we kept him from the long runs to stop him from becoming overworked.

Viima is fast, eager and never quit on me and as she is a perfect 54 cm high, she rock the show ring just as well as the work! She will only behave if I let her run in lead, so there is were she run, and she is good at it! Viima lead on inherited ability, she was just born to do it.

Calla - The odd one
A bit odd and don't behave as other dogs do. Things that can scare other just make her tilt her head and look around calm and secure. Calla is fast, powerful and just shines on every run.

She only have one bad side, she eats socks like crazy when we have her indoors so first we need to clean the house, then she can come inside.
Sheza Classic Nightwish
Bore - The special one
Bore is a result of an accidental mating. He has a very special place in our heart and sleeps with us in bed every night. His working skills are amazing but he really hates his collar and harness until we start running so this coming winter will consist of lots of practice with candy to learn him to like his clothes. Bore will either love you our ignore you, he has nothing in between and is absolutely one of a kind.
