在2003年我们决定实现梦想并在北卡累利阿区(North Carelia)的列克萨镇(Lieksa)创立Bearhill Husky。我们学习并快速的进步，整个过程可以说极具冒险及不确定性。
Valentijn 从2000年开始就与哈士奇一起工作，他曾经在俄罗丝参与过很多的划艇活动也曾经在莱门河(Lemmenjoki)的金矿矿场工作过。虽然他拿的是荷兰护照，但他在非洲南部长大，他自己觉得他是个世界公民。Valentijn 热爱学习跟狗有关的相关知识，并且可以畅谈关于狗的训练精细知识和哈士奇的历史还有如何培育它们的相关知识。
THE LIFE OF THE HUSKY (SUMMER)
A 2 hour kennel tour, with an 800 meter husky ride
Visit our kennel, meet our alaskan huskies and be awed by their amazing abilities. A guided tour of our modern kennel facilities and a fascinating view into the daily life of huskies and their mushers. The dogs will be excited to give you short ride with a cart to show how they prepare for winter (husky ride included only weather permitting, 15 degrees celcius or colder, otherwise it’s too hot for the huskies to pull)
After the ride you will have the chance to walk with husky puppies and adult dogs. The huskies love attention and you will get a chance to interact with them as we go for a walk in our private forest and shore line. There will be time to get to know the dogs and their unique characters, as well as a chance to see the workings of the kennel.
If you love dogs this is for you!

A few days ago Siv delivered a spring package. 9 healthy pups. 4 males and 5 females. These pups are grandpups of Jeff Kings “Alamo” and John Bakers “Kibble”.
They are growing well and Siv is a great mom.
Pups are taking it easy!
We are a family run husky kennel based in Rovaniemi, Lapland.
In 2003 we decided to realize a dream and established Bearhillhusky in the small town of Lieksa in North Carelia. The first years were a steep learning curve and can only be described as adventurous and uncertain.
At first we concentrated on longer tours in the wilds of North Carelia, but as our family grew, and our services were more and more in demand in Lapland we decided to relocate to Rovaniemi, and focus on day trips and shorter tours.
Since 2012 the family has been permanently located in Rovaniemi.
It’s our passion to work with dogs, breed them, train them and let them be the best dogs they can be.
It is exactly this passion we love to share with you!
Valentijn has been working with huskies since 2000, has participated in numerous canoeing and rafting expeditions in Russia and has spent time as a gold-miner in the gold fields of Lemmenjoki. Although his passport says he is Dutch, he grew up in Southern Africa and, feels he is a citizen of the world. Valentijn loves learning about dogs and can talk for hours about the intricacies of dog training, the history of huskies, breeding and their nutrition.
Veronika has been the down to earth voice in our kennel. She is the one who makes sure that emails are answered, bookings go on time, and that all those unseen important tasks in the background get done. She is also an amazing cook, and her salmon soup has impressed many a culinary critic.
Our wilderness man, and jack of all trades. Antti makes sure that Bearhill keeps moving forward more or less smoothly. With a true love for the wilderness life in his own original way he is a genuine character. Antti loves nothing more than travelling the wilds with his dog-team and has done many solo sledding expeditions throughout Lapland.
