NOTICE: Due to Covid 19 there will be additional precautions in place for I am personally high risk and my daughter works as a Vascular Sonographer and works around very high-risk people. Though we have taken the COVID vaccine due to our health risks and dr recommendations so Visits will take place outside with all parties wearing a mask, limit on number of people. PICK UP: Limit of two family members and both must be wearing a mask. pick-up will take place outside the sire and the dam, of course, will be viewable. No exceptions
Our Dogs are BRUCELLOSIS NEGATIVE! ( Blood Tested through our Veterinarian and sent out to a lab. This is the MOST ACCURATE not rapid in house tests you can buy over the internet) so we are Brucellosis free here at Dakine. Make sure your breeder is testing for this VERY IMPORTANT. NOTE all pups born to a female who is positive will also be positive if they survive, and have major health issues, but can also be very silent in a nonbreeding dog and this is a major health threat to his/her humans who are unaware they have been exposed. It is on the rise and very serious and transferable to humans very serious. It is /saliva/fecal transferable those humans with the closest contact are at a higher risk of infection.
NOTE: PLEASE CONTACT US FOR UPCOMING PLANNED breedings AND EXPECTED LITTERS we only have a couple of litters per year. We can gladly provide you with References of those who have worked with us and have our dogs if you would like.
WE DO NOT breed for eye color at all, no reputable breeder does, nor do we allow people on our waiting list for a pup based on eye color, and do not promise eye color for eye color is not fully known right away in pups. With that being said several of our huskies have at least one blue eye so the probability is very high for blue eyes. One of our Siberian Huskies is BI Eyed very unique and stunning and one female has two blue eyes. Also one of our stud dogs is blue-eyed. Blue eyes in Siberian Huskies is actually dominant. But know that we are breeding for structure and temperament first we are not commercial breeders we are passionate about the breed and breed for purpose of the breed. All of our Siberian Huskies carry blue eyes. Reputable breeders breed for the overall benefit of the breed for health, structure, and temperament not commercially (meaning have more than just a couple litters per year and having more than just a few adult dogs). eye color is secondary to health and structure and temperament. I have really focused on temperament in my dogs. I want to create a Siberian who is a joy to live with and as responsive to his/her people as possible for the breed.
Our dogs are from Exquisite top Champion lines. The lines behind my dogs I have selected with research and knowledge of the breed with longevity structure and health are our only focus. When we have a litter, we are breeding towards the AKC standard set for the breed. Health and temperament are our absolute top focus.
We do require that we speak with you over the phone before you get on our waitlist this will be with me Tricia. so you can ask questions and I can get to know you and your family as a potential home for one of our kids. How we place our dogs is a top priority this is our mission and we can be selective. For we put so much energy into raising them properly and right. We need to get to know you and you need to get to know us. I would be seriously skeptical about any breeder with a pay pal button on their site or pay your deposit now button. Yes, I have seen this! Dogs are family, not a buy-now product. I want to be able to talk to anyone who is interested in one of my dogs becoming a family member, or a working dog for them. I want you to ask me questions. I want to make sure this breed is the right fit for you. Makes for a happier dog who is more understood, and a happy family who is better informed and prepared.
Thank you for your understanding~
We do invite you to visit us if you like, but it can be hard for we are on the road a lot with our Frontline business So we visit all over Oregon, WA, Arizona, Idaho, and California for the most part and pretty much fulltime RV'rs at this time, but often are staged in Oregon and Redding CA so you are welcome to visit the dogs, though all ]but one Siberian Husky are living with our Daughter in Redding CA so this would be where you would visit for the most valued Visit and you may cat me in Redding and you can Meet Aleksei as well. All puppies will be in Redding CA. I possibly can arrange to pick them up in Eugene Oregon if needed for the Redding CA litters, but would be nice for you to visit Candice for she would be your breeder. Please Only if you are serious about having one of our dogs as family members do we allow visits. We do not open our home to just everyone. More foot traffic here can put our dogs at risk for the disease to be brought in. So those who are serious about our dogs and want to be put on our waiting list you may visit but shoes must be removed at the door No exceptions and we do have a few other rules to a visit. Thank you for your understanding in helping us protect our dogs from the disease being brought in.
Breeding for our next show Siberian Husky and Shiba Inu Show prospect and to further our own breeding program by selecting dogs to add to it. Also to produce show Shiba Inu or Siberian Husky Show prospect to place in a show home for AKC, International, and UKC dog shows. Due to my connections and passion for the breed, I do breed to help supply dog sled teams with fresh dogs so great structure to pull is key as they are bred to do this job. I also have placed many Service dogs, and am blessed to be connected through knowing the right people. I also have the same connections placing my dogs as tracking dogs and search and rescue. So all my planned breeding's I do have a great purpose. Breeding and working with Siberians is a passionate hobby for the love of the betterment of the breed.
With the demands of my dogs, I am producing I have held tight standards when I purchased my Siberian Huskies that were the foundation's many dogs now in the program are Dakine bred meaning homebreds. I personally have a hand in every dog selected for Dakine Huskies program.The temperament of all of my dogs is unbeatable IMO. One thing you will find is many Siberian Husky temperaments are very hard to live with, so it took time to find the right dogs with the whole package I was looking for. I am breeding for the best temperaments I can produce in this breed and have selected my dogs along with the bloodlines I was waiting for this as a top focus. I am very proud of my breeding program. I love to show but absolutely must make dogs that are trainable and with good temperaments for the work many grow up to perform coming from our breedings.
If approved you are welcome to get on our waiting list
Litter size can vary from 3-8 pups. We reserve the right to pick a puppy of any litter produced if needed at any time this may be for us personally or special need selection takes priority if a dog is a stand out for this as this is our purpose of breeding. This may not be every litter but understand these picks must take priority this is my hobby and my purpose of having a litter. Not being a commercial breeder rarely do breeders even break even. It is our passion and we take our purpose seriously thank you.
*NOTE: We now have a Co Breeder helping with our program my daughter Candice in Redding CA I, for now, I only have one Siberian male my Dude " Aleksei". Due to our traveling in the RV. and my serious spinal cord/back issues. RV life is almost full-time at the moment. All litters produced are ith our Co-Breeders will be in contact with who bred the litter meaning the dam owner. Though we are still in control of the breeding program and how the pups are raised is under our advice and mentorship. Puppies will be In REDDING CA where our CO breeder is located though often we can provide transport if prior arrangments have been made for we are often on the road and visiting the litters they are raising.
NOTE: Siberian Huskies can get Uterine Intertia and can be prone to a C section these are very spending $2000-$8000 so do understand pricing of pups and the work,money and effort that goes into them. Well bred Siberian Husky puppies are not cheap so please consider this before emailing. Pups are price fairly. There also may be a bit of a wait for a puppy for we do not breed that often, nor do we breed every heat cycle and often have a bit of a waiting list worth the wait!
* Up-to-date shots but not over-vaccinated. We use an expensive cutting edge high titter parvo shot and a High titter Distemper shot we do not believe in over-vaccinating a young pup for most vaccines don't even provide protection until the final shot! Then at 8 weeks, they get their first combo puppy shot just before they leave to their Forever families if they are staying with us and not placed yet they will be given booster shots every 3 weeks until 20 weeks of age this ensures good protection the final shot is the MOST IMPORTANT SHOT.
* All pups remain with dam and the litter until 8 weeks of age allowed to nurse and be naturally weaned. This allows the dam to continue to educate her pups, better immunity for longer nursing, better socialization for the pup. BREEDERS WHO TAKE THE DAM AWAY TO EARLY ARE IN MY OPINION HURTING THE PUPS. So many breeders push to wean pups are 5 to six weeks from nursing. Pups need mom still for education and added nutrients of the milk supply. A dam will naturally fully wean her pups and not let them, nurse..
*will be on 7 surfaces by 7 weeks ( this helps to make a well-adjusted dog, with more confidence this stimulates the nervous system.
*Heartworm Prevention n( All of our dogs are heartworm negative V/A blood test and on Revolution and also get a dose of ivermec 2x a month. so pups will come to you without heartworms.
*Puppy Vet exam or Vet Tech exam by me if we are traveling and not where our Vet is just before they leave at 8 weeks checking for any issues and overall health of the pups before leaving. We use Oregon Mobile Vet for this so as to not expose them to disease in a Vet office. They come to our home. The only time we do not do this is if we are traveling with a litter and timing doesn't add up. This is our Vet and the only one we trust. I am a Vet Tech and go over every pup several times before they leave for any issues.
* none of our pups go home with Fleas or ticks we are extremely careful for I am highly allergic to fleas.... ( We recommend Revolution and Bravecto for tics Revolution doesn't cover down for them and with our traveling, we need the tic protection, all of our dogs are on this you need a prescription from your vet). But far worth it to protect your Sibe from Heartworms and Fleas, Ticks, Lice, Mites. All of our dogs are heartworm and Brucellosis negative. You will find a link on the Siberian Husky health page to learn more about Revolution it is the safest anti-flea/tick/lice/mite treatment for dogs through my studies. I highly recommend it. It is not as effective for ticks if you are in a heavy tick-infested area I recommend adding more tick protection when needed, but our dogs have never had ticks using this product.
*Dewormed starting at two weeks of age and kept up until the pup goes home to you so it is done every two weeks.
*Raised 100% inside our home until they go home with their new families. THIS IS HUGE! They are not in an outdoor kennel. They are in our home underfoot until the day they go home and handled and played with daily. Exposed to different sounds and surfaces, carried around, sit with us on the couch socialized in a safe loving, clean environment. Summer litters may see some patio time, due to not being vaccinated and risk of protozoa infections as well from the grass and soil we do not allow them on the grass until they are a bit older and have a vaccine in them.
*Neurostimulation: Now this is huge huge huge our pups receive this and it makes such a huge difference 30% more brain cells, better immune system, overall health, confidence. READ MORE HERE: https://breedingbetterdogs.com/article/early-neurological-stimulation
* Used to having toenails trimmed and teeth looked at.
*Temperament testing: We temperament test every puppy several times before they go so you know if your dog should be Alpha or more submissive.
*We have children whom we have come over and play with our puppies, this also helps with the socialization and gets them used to kids and the quick movements etc.
*Started on Recall training command ( This we start with every meal when they begin to eat solids) this is a very good thing to have with this breed for they can be very stubborn and not come when called. Our adults are on recall and come when called most of the time lol. So important to have with this breed. We were so disappointed when two of our dogs came to us lack of socialization. I got them when they were older pups, been a real challenge for me even as a trainer please make sure your breeder is raising pups in the home under feet exposed to things.
* Also ALL OF MY PUPPIES go home with a lifetime of breeder support. I can provide you with vaccine info, deworming, issues with training/illness whatever comes up you have for the life of your dog! I am the breeder who is involved as you want me to be with you and your dog. I am a Vet Technician by trade though I do not work in a Vet Office anymore. These Siberian pups are my kids going off into the world, I want to help you be successful parents to living life and part of your family. They are man's best friend I have put so much into them to get them here and raise them until they go home with you.
PLEASE READ NOTE: Once again it is so important this breed is raised in a very social environment inside a home environment. They can be bred for temperament, but without being handled and exposed to noise and people daily they will be a challenge to say the least. I can not stress this enough, being a dog trainer I see so much of this. Breeders just don't understand you can't raise them outside in a kennel or garage and have a dog that is truly socialized. Huge hurdles ahead for those who get pups not socialized enough. Seems like almost every dog I have gotten from a breeder has been this way. So very disappointing to say the least. Breeders and People just don't get it. Our dogs are family members. Yes, this is very hard work and challenging to have them inside your home for 8 weeks, cleaning up after them, etc. This is why many breeders opt to raise litter outside. I, however, choose to work hard and give my pups the absolute best social start and it pays off ten folds! My clients are very happy and rave about our dogs.
We produce show prospects when requested and will place them accordingly so please inquire if you are looking for a possible show dog :) show pups will be placed as a priority along with service and working dogs placed above pet homes. Even show pups go through a lanky gangly growing stage as they mature ears and legs can look funny at roughly 3-5 months of age. Pups are assessed for show quality at 8 weeks of age this is the dog your pup should come back to when mature.
NOTE: We often do not Register pups if they are going into pet homes/working homes for we do not want any reason for people to the backyard breed our dogs. Papers are of no use to the pet client other than status they are only useful to the breeding program so the breeder can use it for genetics and know breeding behind your breeding dogs to help better your breeding program. If you want AKC papers please inquire and state why.
We breed for show purpose, but are blessed to breed for: service dog work/PTSD prospects/ Sled dogs/ search and rescue/tracking. We have personal connections in this and welcome your inquires.

All our pregnant and Lactating girls from day one at the start of their heat cycle get prenatal vitamins along with their food for the entire time they are nursing and for an additional month after to help with recovery from nursing/pregnancy. This one is my personal choice and the one we use here at Dakine
All of our Newborn pups receive Nurture Mate Colostrum the moment they are born this is a huge start for them. The extra colostrum makes them stronger and helps get them going so they nurse well to get the dams Colostrum that is only available the first 48 hrs after birth.
We feed Pro Plan Sport professional Salmon and Rice to our Siberian Husky puppies it is a Dry Dog Food 30/25, 33-lb bag it is a very high-quality food that can be found on Chewy.com so our clients can continue to feed it no matter where you live. This is a life-stage formula Purina Pro Plan Professional Salmon and Rice is enough for your dog though we personally choose to switch to Focus when our dogs are a year of age for it doesn't have any corn and corn can inhibit the absorption of zinc. Both dog's foods can be shipped to your doorstep within days of ordering with Chewy. I am picky! Yes, it is high-end pricey food, but well worth it. We do not skimp on nutrition, it is the foundation of health. It is right at $50 shipped to your doorstep. Once again a life stage formula and can be fed for the entire life of your dog. Perfect Calcium/Phosphorus to help with joints (too much calcium can lead to Hip Dysplasia). Also good protein/Fat well/ calorie count. It also has a good amount of Zinc which Siberian Huskies need more of :) though for the adults I still choose to make the switch for better zinc absorption.
We also like Nutri Source Trout and Rice excellent food for once your Siberian is a year of age for it has higher calcium and you don't want pups to have too much for they grow too fast and it can cause joint issues but this is wonderful food and privately milled. Love Nutri Source. It is also pictured below. Calcium ratios are fine for a Siberian a year plus in age. I am not excited it does have a bit of flax and this can be an issue for dogs in greater quantities but other than that I do like this formula. Currently, we are feeding Focus Salmons and rice sensitive stomach to all our adult Siberians also info and link below give you a few to choose from. I like that it doesn't have corn. I would start pups out on this for without the corn they absorb zinc better but it isn't a life stage formula so I switch all dogs to Focus at a year of age.
. *Our dogs get Seaweed often to support the thyroid with iodine and for trace minerals and more omega's as well as seaweed has to zinc. Tripe is our fav go-to for a treat and we also include fish oil a couple of times a week and supplemental Zinc 3 x per week. We also give a tsp of MCT 3 x a week sometimes a bit more Read here about MCT oil and the benefits for dogs. We start them at 6 months of age NOT OUR PUPS.https://treatibles.com/blog/how-mct-coconut-oil-benefits-pets/
we also feed wheat Germ oil to all our dogs.
We give all our Siberians Extra Zinc a few times per week. Deficiency is extremely common and the number one cause of Seizures in Siberian Huskies. Nordic breeds do not absorb zinc efficiently.
We Supplement with Fish oil a few days a week, Being a Nordic breed they need the fish oil :) this is the brand we use for its purity. we alternate between these two
Starting at 6 months of age our dogs get a tsp a day start slow half dose and work up to a full dose. Same with the Wheat Germ Oil :)
There is a lot of controversy with show breeders over using Wooly coat dogs in breeding programs and here is my take and personal opinion on this. Wooly Siberian Huskies are absolutely stunning but, the coat for show and sledding isn't a go at all and it is a disqualification in the show ring. As for sledding it doesn't repel the water like a double coated Siberian Husky coat would. With that being said as far as pets the wooly coat is perfectly fine. As long as it's owner is willing to take on the extra grooming (this is a great bonding daily activity with an owner and their dog anyhow) the wooly is a very stunning coat on the Siberian Husky. For pets it is absolutely gorgeous why not a wooly ? That is if you like it. Just like with Shiba Inus and other breeds it is a gene found in the breed and does come up even in the best show lines. It is fine in a solid pet breeding program, but not for the working program if the dog is going to be pulling a sled in the snow. Far to many show breeders get on a band wagon putting down breeders who breed in the wooly coat, it is a matter of preference and there is nothing wrong with breeding for it as long as the breeders are not placing them as sled dogs. So much judgment from many show breeders who think they know everything would be a waste of a beautiful dogs and more quality breeders need to be breeding them so the good healthy lines stay for those wanting this type of coat for a family dog. People will still want wooly coats no matter who has an opinion that they shouldn't be bred . This absolutely presents a problem for health if good breeders are not breeding them the quality will be totally lost. I do have two wooly girls in our program and they are nothing short of amazing. The best healthy top Champion bred lines and put together way better structurally than many dogs who go into many show breeding programs. I will say any wooly coated pups that our two girls have will not be placed as sled dogs simple as that and very easy. Most clients even those wanting therapy dogs wooly coats will be just fine if that is what the owner prefers. I am about preserving quality dogs and besides the longer wooly coat both our girls are beyond amazing structurally and in health this is the up most importance and is lost in most woolies you see for they come from those not breeding good lines of the Siberian Husky. I see so many dogs in breeding programs for show who structurally will not hold up over the years with slipped hocks, straight shoulders and down the road it will cause issues with joints and these dogs are in show/sled dog programs and are not built to do their job. . So this is ridiculous to me that those dogs are still in a show breeding program a bit hypocritical to say the least these dogs are actually worse for the structural faults can cause joint issues later in life. These breeders who have these dogs in their programs I see often are those who are slamming people who have woolies in their program. They obviously don't get structure is huge,huge huge in any program for the longevity of the dog. Or they don't understand what slipped hocks are and how it effects the Siberian doing it's job and how well the dogs ages and holds up! Being a Vet Tech I have seen what the result of slipped hocks and out at the elbows can result in over time. Just my personal opinion on this, but something to think about for sure. Now if you are wanting a wooly coated Siberian you do need to take your time to be sure your dog comes from a breeder who has healthy dogs.Show breeders will get them cropping up in their litters so do inquire and ask. Many BYD do breed the woolies so beware in your search since it is not an accepted thing by the show breeders.
