What do you feed the
the winter season we feed the dogs a high energy kibble that is 30% protein and
20% fat (30/20). We feed them dry kibble morning and evening and at lunch we

in a large 1/2 acre enclosure at our cabin kennel.
Are the dogs friendly?
are just like people in many ways. They each have their own unique
personalities. They are all friendly, but some are more outgoing than others,
just like people. On a team of twelve dogs there may be one shy dog and eleven
that can’t get enough attention. You’ll easily know which is which.
