Our friends


Dogs are part of the family. For many people, having a hunting dog is just a tool for the hunting season, but remember that throughout a dog's long life it is more a family dog than a hunting dog.

Having a dog in the family can present many challenges, especially for children. In order to succeed, it is important that children learn to understand for themselves, and not just be told what to do.

A normal dog population here with us varies and there are always a couple of young dogs in the pack. Through three generations we have developed a line of Norwegian Grey Elkhounds that has given us a lot of joy.
