Elkhound Puppies

Elkhound Puppies - Breeding Update November 18th, 2017

Desna training in full swing!

Mishka , Female Elkhound Pup TrainingGÆDA and her daughter Vida are playing a big part in the Desna training this season. As you may remember the whole "Desna" program was named after the son of GÆDA and Takoda, Mr. Desna himself. Vida is a full sister to Desna.

The young female that they are training out on this snowy day is a daughter of Jaegar and Kalia. Interesting thing is, Mishka, who is the young female is going up to be a pal to Desna in Anchorage, is sired by his brother Jaegar. How neat is that?

Mishka , Female Elkhound Pup TrainingMishka is a very smart female Elkhound. She is watching her aunt Tora who is along with her here,  as well as GÆDA and Vida. The whole modeling the big dogs concept works exceptionally well to train the young pups how to behave in the mountains off leash.

Of course this only works if you have skilled mountain dogs to do it with. We just happen to have of course the very elite in off leash mountain Elkhounds to train them with. It also would not be possible to do this without the genetics, it would be chaos with just any old genetics. Pups would be going everywhere. Our genetics are all based around ancient working lines, so it's not all just the modeling by any stretch of the imagination. Also, you have to be able to communicate with the pups in a way they understand, that takes a little skill as well.

Lark , Female Elkhound Pup TrainingLark, a young daughter of Jaegar and Kalia is out working with her role model Tora. Now Tora and Lark are very, very much alike. As Tora is a full sibling to Jaegar genetics in Lark are going to be very tight to Tora. I can hardly believe that I am not watching a young Tora some days when I have Lark out.

They move through the bush the same way, they stop and check things simultanteously, it's really cool to watch the genetics and the instincts at work. Young Lark follows cues from Tora but she is so sharp already, I could be hiking this region very easily with just her alone. In fact any of these pups I could.

Ruhne , Male Elkhound Pup TrainingRuhne he loves his uncle MÅNE, who is a brother to Jaegar. MÅNE is a superb trainer, in fact one of my very best. Rivals all the big dogs and only 1 year old. Ruhne, this is a neat story, he is headed out to be with Jaegars full brother, Bosco out in Saskatoon. How neat is it that here almost nine years since Bosco was born, one of Bosco's brothers is training his new pal and nephew, that another brother, sired. Go figure! Ruhne is a super smart fella, just an amazing young Elkhound Male.

Dakoda , Male Elkhound Pup TrainingDakoda the big fella looks at his dad Jaegar wondering what's up next dad. Where to? Any Moose around here?

These two are fast moving big fellas, Dakoda is 21 pounds at 12 weeks, a chip off the old block no doubt. A big thick rascal. Jaegar of course is a tough trainer, he is a fast moving fella and has big range. I use him, but no where near as much as the others. I can take him with young rascals like Dakoda as he has impeccable recall skills already and likes that little extra adventure.

Bergen Female Elkhound Pup TrainingBergen of course she loves her Grandpa Takoda. As luck would have it Bergen was working her independent off leash training with the old master himself, Takoda. Bergen and Takoda of course all the ancient black genetic material from the old Norrland dogs comes flying out. So Bergen she thinks she is in northern Sweden 300 years ago. Takoda he thinks he never left!

There are no better trainers in the world than the Kamia Elkhounds and Takoda as you know  is the Premier mountain training Elkound. These my friends, these are Ancient Elkhounds!

Tuva and Leif, and the 3 males out mountain hiking

Leif Norwegian Elkhound Male SirePretty Boy Leif  and Tuva along with the 3 spectacular males they produced this last round were out on a great hike in the mountains up above our home on November 18th, 2017. These are some seriously good Norwegian Elkhound pups, my goodness.

Great little mountain dogs already, they are tough rascals and can hike very well up here. Leif and Tuva are super to them, constantly checking on them, Tuva she is like a set of secret service agents around her pups.

 This is the video I did while we took a break on our hike, enjoy, they are 7 weeks old.



Nate and Coho, Son of KaiI got a great update from Nate and Erinn the other day. They have a son of Kai from last litter, a tremendous young male named Coho.  Thank you Erinn and Nate for such a great home you give Coho, AWESOME!

"Hey Merv,

Great to hear from you. We have been meaning to send an update for a while.

Coho is doing awesome. He really is a great dog. What you say about these dogs having good instincts sure is true. He has been a great hiking dog from day 1. He will always stay nearby and never roam or lag too far before checking in. Something we never trained, he just does. We are still working on a few commands but he keeps getting better the more we practice. On leash is still a bit of a work in progress but for the most part he keeps a nice loose lead. Still gets a bit distracted from other dogs here and there but will listen up quickly when commanded.

I have taken him up snowboarding with me a few times and he just loves it. Will follow right behind me. I attached a video of him following me in June up at cypress mountain. I have never seen a dog so happy than when he is in the snow. Ive attached a few other photos of him on some hikes and even paddle boarding. He also just went for his first swim ever the other day. I wasnt sure if he would ever like water but he went in and swam all by himself.

The amount of compliments we have got about him is endless. People every day asking what kind of dog he is. Im sure we have sent you some business by now.

Overall we just love him to bits and couldnt be happier with him. Thanks again. We will keep in touch for sure.

Nate and Erinn"

This my friends, this is a Norwegian Elkhound!


Phoenix - Luna - Vida - Tekla

I got a neat video of all the young females playing and having a fun time yesterday. September 22nd 2017. Tekla was hoping we could have a serious video shoot but alas, the young females were having none of that. They just wanted to have fun!


In the video I did on the 22nd of Sept I speak about a video I did earlier. This is the video I am referring to. It's the one showing young Luna in her red harness, she is a fun little pup that Luna.



Tekla and Leif hook up on the 30th of September, some amazing pups on the way!

Tuva and her sister Tekla winter hiking - Offleash mountain Norwegian Elkhounds

Tuva and Tekla Norwegian Elkhound SistersNo one can deny the quality of the twins, Tuva and Tekla. They are shown with me on a high elevation mountain hike in the winter, two stunning females. Tuva and Tekla, along with their half sister Kai are in my "Not Humble" opinion the three best females in North America and can rival any world wide. Leif is going to have his work cut out matching quality with those three, but he is proving to be up to the task.

Leif and Tuva had the first litter, all outstanding pups. I am so thrilled. Tuva and Leif did hook up again, and I have now on the ground as of the 29th of September the second litter from Tuva and Leif. I need to point out as well that Tuva and Leif are "All Norwegian Elkhound" they are one of our few pairs that have no Swedish blood as far back as can be found.  Leif and Tekla have hooked up as of the 30th of September. Now we will be able to see what Tekla and Leif can bring forward. Tekla is a stunning female, I have some high expectations for this litter, I am very excited about this. Give or take 63 days and we will see them here. Please contact us about the Tekla litter, you might still be in time to speak for a pup, we have folks on the list already, but contact me anyway, there could be potential for one.

Leif , July 2017  A Tremendous Young Male Norwegian Elkhound!

Leif, Male Norwegian ElkhoundNow Leif is a pretty boy, don't get me wrong he is full ancient dog, but he is all Show Dog genetics. Grand Champion Father and Mother, Grandfather, and every dog in his lineage for as long as you wish to look a champion. Father was best in show, etc.  etc. Now, for all of you who read this site, show titles are no real big deal for me, as I don't show, I go. So we needed a "Show Line" that could "Still Hunt" if you know what I mean. We finally worked it out with the help of some really great breeders of Elkhounds. They knew the quality of Tuva, and of course Tekla, Kai and a few others we might use Leif with, so they got us an outstanding young male.

Leif Young Norwegian Elkhound Male It's really something to see young Leif when he stretches out in his fancy show gait. There is nothing quite like it no doubt about it. He has his entire background of ancestors bred almost exclusively for this far reaching gait and when he steps on out, Wow it's really something to see.

This particular photo of course explains a fair bit why his ancestors were the only Norwegian Elkhounds to win Best in Hound Group multiple times at the famous Westminster Dog Show.

So for those of you in line for a pup, the range of incredible combinations just got a little bit wider for sure.

You can learn more about this terrific young male, click here: Leif Norwegian Elkhound Male

I did a neat video on Leif and MÅNE working with and all the male pups from the 5 litters I think you'll like it:


MÅNE - New Stud Male, Kamia Kennels

MANE Elkhound Stud Dog Kamia Kennels

We have some very good Elkhounds around the yard and out throughout North America with our pups. This young male of course is one of the very best you could find. Pretty Boy Leif is a great male, no doubt about it, but he is not in the league of MÅNE, few Elkhounds are. This is a son of Takoda and Tekla. That is an amazing combination of genetics.

The Leif and Tekla combination should yield truly amazing Elkhounds like this one. Tekla is a better Elkhound than Leif so she will bring out all the best in Leif, and he has the genetics in him, those genetics just need a female like Tekla or Tuva or Kai to bring them out in full view. We have already saw that with Tuva. MÅNE is a stunning example of what can be accomplished if you plan the genetics around both parents. You could look your whole life, actually two lives and not come acrosss such an Elkhound as this. Luckily, for the folks waiting on the Tekla litter, or getting a pup from the recent litter of Tuva, it is possible to get this great a dog.

Those pups upcoming from Tekla and Leif are going to be excellent dogs, very much like MÅNE. By all means get in touch with us early, don't wait.


Kamia Elkhounds - Kai's litter out mountain hiking at 8 weeks



Willow and Sage - Michelle and Dan have stunning twin daughters of Tekla!

Dan and Michelle, Willow and SageAs you may already know, we are big proponents of two Elkhound families. Dan and Michelle have two of the very best Elkhounds you could find in the world. These two, Willow and Sage are stunning daughters of Tekla and Takoda.

The genetic combination of the parents of these two is amazing and it creates such a fascinating young Elkhound. To have two beauty queens like this is really something, no doubt about that.


Dan and Michelle, Willow and SageGetting a great Elkhound is a super day, getting two, at the same time Wow. Neat times ahead. Now Michelle and Dan have been focused on training these two young rascals. They have been working each female individually, yet also working them together as well.

The key when raising two litter mates is of course giving each one individual training and individual time with each handler. You can work them together a fair bit, but that one on one with each dog, each handler is where it really pays off. Each dog them develops into all it can be, as well, they develop into an amazing pair of Elkhounds. Dan and Michelle have done a world class job with these two.

Willow Michelle and SageWillow, Michelle and Sage, what a happy photo. These two young Elkhound females have it made, no doubt about it. A huge thank you to Michelle and Dan for working with us and having the confidence in our dogs and program. This is a big committment and they are providing an awesome home for these two females. A bit hats off to both of you, what a stunning pair of dogs you are raising.

Great young adult dogs and mature Elkhounds take much more than just superior genetics, it takes all the hard work and time that the owners put into them. Michelle and Dan are doing exactly that. Pretty Awesome!

Willow and Sage Norwegian ElkhoundsDan with Willow and Sage late summer 2017

Great exposure to all sights sounds and traffic, they do an excellent job conditioning these two young females. Dan is shown here at a campground, they do a fair bit of RV and traveling around with these two. They wanted to have "Social" yet instinctively protective females, that way they could go to RV spots, get along with all the folks, yet still hike and walk remote trails and have the best in hiking and remote terrain behaviour out of these two!

You would be hard pressed to find two nicer females than these two, not only are they stunning to look at they are very well trained, well mannered and of course, these my friends these are Full Instinct Elkhounds!


 Marlene, Takoda and Aina, July 1st, 2017

Marlene, Aina and Takoda

Marlene and I had a great hike on Canada Day, July 1st 2017. We took the two big Swedish Dogs up to the high country for an early morning stretch out. They love the high country as it's so full of game and rich with scent. Great to hike with these two big dogs.

These are powerful Swedish Elkhounds, Takoda running 65 lbs and Aina at 62 lbs. She is going to be bulking up now this fall while she gets ready to have a litter.

We were taking a break at the top but they were fully aware of everything around us, tons of game, bear especially all around so we keep these two on leash, they of course think they perhaps should tree a few bears for us.

I have the details on the Aina and Rico litter below, it's fast approaching as well, Aina is doing terrific. 

Ashten, Russ with RicoAshten had a chance to get together with Russ and big Rico when she was getting Annabelle, Moki and Birgit to the plane. The pups had a chance to burn around and get to know the big fella a bit. Russ has been having a really great time with Rico, he is doing awesome.

Rico has been filling out lately and is a large big fella now these days, pushing up to just over 80 pounds now. The litter with Aina will be some spectacular pups. I'll have more on Rico and Russ and Beth in the upcoming newsletter.

Aina Jamthund Female Swedish ElkhoundAina is an incredible female. She has been a tremendous young Swedish Elkhound to raise and train. Aina has a strong drive to hunt so it took me some time to get her comfortable off leash. She is super smart, but the instinctive drive is also super strong, so that takes some training to control.

She is a happy girl in the bush I can tell you that, it's a very comfortable place for her, she relaxes and is fun to be around, intent, but relaxed if you know what I mean. She is of course as you can see absolutely stunning. Her build is filling in now, she is powerful but lean this summer, she is now filling in a bit. She is shown here on a hike with me she is 17 Months, 62 pounds. This my friends, this is an Elkhound!

Aina - Jamthund - Swedish Elkhound - Litter Summer 2018

Aina and Rico Jamthund Dogs with Merv

Well, I have here with me two amazing Jamthunds. Both are two of the very best in the world, with so many champions lining up the background of either that it's unbelievable.

Young Aina, 9 Months old, 58 pounds already is my best friend, she is so much like Takoda in so many ways it's unbelievable. Never did I think I would see such personable nature to the handler and all the traits he has be equalled. She will show me all the traits and qualities the ancient Swedish Elkhounds possess. This is also my most dominant young female I have ever seen, and I have witnessed a large number of them. She takes the cake.

Her mother is Finnish Bear Champion, her dad Finnish Working Champion, every dog in her lineage as far back as you wish to look, going back to minimum 1958 are all Champion hunting and working dogs and show champions. This is the very best Jamthund female you could find.

Aina and Rico Jamthund Dogs with MervI will mate her with Rico toward the end of 2017. He has the exact same quality lineage, a stunning mate for her. I had the breeders in Finland work hard to get me the perfect match up for Rico. Decades of experience in selecting dogs they put together to assist me in getting the right female. I could not be happier.

Years ago when Tora was a very young pup I had folks speak for her pups and wait two years for her to develop, I have the same opportunity for folks to do the same with Aina. Already folks are speaking for pups from this combination, there are only a possible chance let for a male. All females are spoken for and quite a few males. Please contact me very early if you expect to have a chance at a pup from this pair.

Its a great honour for me to have had the support and assistance of Ossi, the breeder of Aina and Satu and Jani, the breeders of Rico to work with me and over time, breed and plan for the right pup to start the Canadian Jamthund lineage at Kamia Kennels. I could not thank all of them enough for the time and effort they have invested to get the Jamthunds started in Canada.

Ossi has spent his life breeding some of the very best Jamthunds and has many many champions. Satu and Jani have as well been working and raising the very best in the Jamthund breed for years as well. I will expand on Aina over the next while and keep all informed as we go forward. These my friends, These Are Ancient Elkhounds!

Aina Female Jamthund 1 YearThis is a recent photo of Aina at 1 year of age March 13th, 2017. She is an incredible female Jamthund. As of today she is longer than all my dogs except Takoda. She also taller than all except him. She is 60 pounds of lean muscle. This girl has some serious attitude.  Awesome mountain dog. FEARLESS.

I really enjoy my time with Aina she is the ultimate one owner dog this gal. I'll be putting more up on her page, you can visit her page here for more on this great Jamthund: Aina Swedish Elkhound

Kamia Kennels - Norwegian Elkhounds

Elkhound Puppies are easy enough to care for, they have a very warm coat and as long as your kennel area is not overly cold at night will be very content. The better the food quality you feed, the healthier the pup. We recommend either a raw food diet or Origen. Origen is an extremely good prepared ration for your pup.

The first six months are important to your pup, especially at night. Allowing the pup time to go outside every 2 - 3 hours for a quick break to go to relieve themselves ensures that the bladder remains healthy for life. The same applies during the day as well.

Kennel training begins immediately and provides your pup with the knowledge and the opportunity it requires to grow up healthy, and remain very easy to look after.

Elkhounds are very intelligent, and if given a chance can begin learning all types of information right away. You won't need to wait, it's very rewarding working with a young pup and watching them grow and learn and develop.

Mia shown below with her and Takoda's April 2009 Litter - 10 pups ( Mia is the great grandmother to Kai's litter, and the grandmother to Kai's litter is one of those little pups in this photo, Tora. Also Mia is the grandmother to Kalia's pups as well.)

Kamia Kennels - Quality Elkhounds

Elkhound Puppies are a bundle of joy. They are energetic and fun right away. They are like little miniature full grown Elkhounds in their behaviour and traits. It's really neat to see a pup sit a certain way and continue to do that through life.

As we have mentioned before these dogs love snow. As a pup they can play for hours outside having a blast. They are a terrific pup for kids who love it outside. These dogs will be companion dogs for their life.

A feature that is often overlooked that we truly appreciate is that there is no odour on these dogs or wet smell. The dogs can be outside and come right inside if you like. They are content to lay at your feet or near the fireplace, on a rug or familiar spot.

Takoda Premier Elkhound Male StudHave lot's of chew toys for your young dog for months to come, as the teeth develop they need to chew, no doubt we've all had to get a few new laces, and perhaps some new shoes! These are in our opinion the most well rounded dog, free from almost all defects, a true family dog, with traits that suit a wide range of individuals. We feel they are the best dog you could have!

The little guy sitting so nice on the rug is Takoda, I took that photo late December 2007. Takoda roams our place today with a lot of his offspring, he has been a truly amazing companion and stud dog. My best pal, no doubt.

I took this photo July 31st, 2017, he is in magnificent shape and still rules.

This my friends, this is an Elkhound!

Kamia Kennels - Mia's First Litter

Elkhound Puppies, this is Takoda's First Litter, and also Mia's first litter, October of 2008, this photo, taken in December they are fat little fellas, Mia is a very good mother.

Her pups are always well fed and grow very fast.

She maintained her condition really well, we really fed her as much as she can eat, and she eats a lot when nursing these pups, no doubt.

These are snow dogs, even as pups they love the snow, sticking their noses and head right in to the snow, you have to really coax them to come back to the kennel.

Kamia Kennels - Jay and Ashten have a handful with these pups - December 2008

This is a photo from a long time ago, a fun photo for sure. Pups are now 5 weeks old in this photo, running around, play fighting, busy as can be. They are already taking the laces out of the shoes, just like their father. They all bark when you step into the kennel, little miniature watch dogs. We were taking some group photos and it was quite a task to keep all six of these little jokers in place, get Mia and Takoda both to look at the camera, and all of us, trying hard not to have anyone's eye closed on the flash, thank goodness for digital memory cards.

Original Twin Females

Sofi, Tula, Tora, Tekla and Tuva

This is a very cool photo and a fun story behind it. As I have a great write-up on the  two "new twins" Willow and Sage in the main section, I thought I would touch on the "Original Twin Females", Sofi and Tula. Years ago two best friends, June and Jen contacted me about getting a pair of females, each family would raise one, but they would be together a lot. June's husband Dan stopped by with the two big girls last summer. They got to reconnect with their sister Tora, and meet of course, Tekla and Tuva. Tekla and Tuva were in awe of these big girls. They had never met any of Tora's big sisters. These girls are of course half sisters to Willow and Sage featured in the main article. Neat how many years later you can have a set of sisters go to another great home like these two amazing females above.

Takoda of course is the father to both Tula and Sofi, and Willow and Sage. These my friends, these are some Elkhound Females!

Kavic, Son of Kai and Hachi Elkhound Male

Kavic Norwegian Elkhound MaleThere is nothing better than getting these updates from all our folks who have our pups. This tremendous big fella is Kavic, Son of Kai and Hachi. Wow, what a great fella. Chris sent me a really great update, a huge thank you to her for providing such a super home for this big fella.

Now the update she sent has a ton of great photos of this young handsome fella and an awesome update, so I will create a place for it, but wanted this photo online right away. Kavic is a full brother to Coho, to the left.

Gifford - Son of Jaegar & Kalia

I just got this great additional information from Alycia on a terrific write-up that "Filson" did on Dan and his Forestry Company him and Alycia run. It's a terrific article and of course, my head is pretty fat as it features this big fella below, Gifford. He works out everyday with Dan, tough as nails little rascal, keeping the bears at bay. Pretty cool! Neat article, a huge congrats to Dan pretty nice article.

Filson Article

If They Ain't Wavin

Gifford Son of Jaegar and Kalia

Gifford, one of the big boys from Jaegar and Kalia last litter out on the job site. I got this great update from Daniel and Alycia just the other day, Gifford is down south of us in Washington State. He works along side Daniel and Alycia, they are running a great forestry company of their own down there.

Gifford Son of Jaegar and Kalia

"Hi Merv,

I hope you're doing well up north!

I wanted to send you an update on Gifford, He's doing well in the field with Daniel and I. He averages at least a few miles a day exploring the PNW forests, and hes already barked at a big old boar black bear.He is a working GQ dog!

Alycia and Daniel"

Jaegar Elkhound Stud Dog at Kamia Kennels

I put an article up about Jaegar and Leif, our two big young stud dogs. It's a neat article and gives you some insight into our program and the genetic potential we have right now with these two big fellas. Click the image of Jaegar to view it.

Elkhound Pup Prices

The Jamthund Pups from Aina are priced differently. Please contact me directly to speak about them. You will most likely be looking at a second litter pup from Aina as we have a lot of deposits on the first litter already. But contact me directly to speak about Aina's litter.

USA Residents please note:

There is no applicable taxes.

Desna Program Price

Our new Desna Program, which I named after the first stellar pup to complete the new program, Mr. Desna himself is a new program. The new Desna program is one where I will keep the pup here for 16 weeks, it will have all the 3 sets of boosters and rabies shots, deworming, and of course a full health certificate, with International certificate and flight certificate.

Also, the pup will go through our initial training program that was so successful with Desna. The pups learn much faster around our older dogs so it's very easy for me to do all the initial training and provide you with a very well started pup. I will be putting a lot more details up on the Desna program soon.

Desna Norwegian program pups are 3000.00 Canadian plus applicable taxes.

Desna Jamthund program pups please contact me directly to speak about the litter from Aina.

I'll share the story on Desna and this cow Moose in the upcoming newsletter, Tim just sent me this photo the other day and I wanted to put it up.

Tora and Luna

Luna on the left, Tora on the right. Luna is just a slight bit taller than Tora now at 9 months, and is going to be as wide as well. Luna is going to be  a big powerful female. Tora doesn't let her little sister push her around yet though!

Tora and Luna

MÅNE - Our New Stud Male

I have below my new future stud dog, MÅNE. He is a brother to Jaegar. He is going to be as large and powerful as Jaegar as you can see. He is to the left, Jaegar to the right. He is an absolutely stunning male. Even if I do say so myself I have to say, he is the best looking male I have ever seen!

 Mane, our new Elkhound Stud Dog

MÅNE is Swedish for Moon, and because he was born the night of the SuperMoon, I thought it was a fitting name for such a tremendous young male.

Tora and Leif

Coming into our program Leif had some filling out to do. He was a young male and had not had much work. Around here it's tough going with almost all hikes uphill, both ways.

As you can see he has muscled right in very well, in fact he can now stand beside the powerhouse Tora and still maintain his composure. A great testament to his genetics and our conditioning program.

Tora and Leif Norwegian Elkhounds


Tekla is of course in awesome shape. She is having a great summer just spending some time with cruising around the mountains.

She is cycling right now and is in with Leif. They have hooked up already on the 30th, so I am expecting some pups in 63 days.

Tekla is probably the best female Norwegian Elkhound in North America I believe, and if the truth be told, probably as good as you could find in the World Today! This my friends, this is an Elkhound!
Tekla Norwegian Elkhound Female

Takoda, Aina and I

There are great days and then there are Great Days. July 1st, 2017 Canada Day, 150 Year birthday for Canada, pretty neat for sure.

Marlene and I had a chance to hike first thing in the morning with the future of the Swedish Elkhounds in Canada, Takoda and Aina.  Pretty Neat Indeed!
