Our Elkhound Dogs

Great Puppies Are On The Way!

Mia Elkhound Dog

Mia has had a huge impact on our breeding program. She brings that stout thickness the breed is so well know for. But more importantly she brings the fertility from the ancient genetics. The old world females were very fertile, cycled on time, rebred, had big litters, were very healthy.

Takoda Premier Elkhound Male

Takoda is one of the few big Swedish Elkhounds raised with full genetic instincts and instinctive actions and behaviours intact. Nothing has been trained out, we have allowed all his natural ability and instinct behaviour to flourish, exactly as it would have 400 or 1000 years ago.

tora elkhound dog

Tora, daughter of Mia and Takoda, foundation female of Kamia Kennels - we had four incredible litters out of Tora and Bram. Tora is the most prolific female Elkhound there is. Tora is an amazing female. Tora has produced Kai for us, who will carry her genetics forward.

MANE Norwegian Elkhound Male

MÂNE is a younger brother to Jaegar. A spectacular young Norwegian Elkhound male from Takoda and Tekla. He has his first litter on the ground now in 2018 with Kalia and again soon in Jan with Kalia.

jaegar elkhound dog

Jaegar is a big fella, he is over 70 lbs all the time now, solid and thick. Jaegar is pulled all the dark old lineage traits from his ancient Swedish heritage, a stunning big male sire. Jaegar is the older brother to MÂNE.

Kalia - Elkhound Female

Kalia is a stunning big female. She is bringing the old Swedish genetics back into our female lineages. This is one of our young foundation females who we just had a great litter from with MÂNE and she is due again in January once more.

Kamp Female Elkhound

Kamp is a big beautiful Norway female. She is the mother to our twins, Tekla and Tuva. Kamp is a solid very strong female at the upper range of size for Norway females, she is over 60 pounds.

Kai Female Elkhound

Kai is a tremendous young daughter of Tora. She is a granddaughter of Mia and Takoda. This is an awesome young female who displays all the instinctive traits of an ancient Elkhound. This is a very good female.

Tekla and Tuva Twin Elkhound Females
Tekla and Tuva

These are the twins, Tekla and Tuva. They are identical female Norwegian Elkhounds. They are daughters of Kamp, pictured to the left. These are stunning young females, two of the best in the world. I just put a great article up about raising two Elkhounds.

Leif Male Norwegian Elkhound

Leif is our new young Norwegian Elkhound Stud Dog. He is from a very long line of Grand Champion Norwegian Elkhounds. Leif will be used in our program with some of our top Norwegian Elkhound females, like Tuva and Tekla and Kai. Leif is going to have his first litter spring of 2017 with Tuva.

Mane and Luna Elkhound Siblings
MÅNE and Luna

MÅNE and Luna are the two tremendous young Elkhounds we kept back from the litter of Takoda and Tekla. MÅNE will be assisting Leif and Jaegar, and his dad Takoda with some of the breeding in the future. Luna will be taking over for her grandma Kamp in a few years and helping our her mother Tekla.

Aina Jamthund Swedish Elkhound Female

Aina is our beautiful Swedish Elkhound or Jamthund. Aina is a magnificent representation of the very best of the Jamthunds in the world. Every dog in her lineage is working Champion. Aina is the only full Jamthund breeding Female in North America.



Phoenix Norwegian Elkhound Female

Phoenix is our magnificent young female from Kamp and Jaegar. She is going to carry forward the great lineage of Kamp, combined with her dad's genetics to be one of our foundation females. This is a clone of Jaegar through and through.

Vida Ancient Lineage Female Elkhound

Vida is the stunning dark daughter of Takoda and  GÆDA. Vida will carry forward the ancient genetics from her mother and father. Both  GÆDA and Takoda stem from the ancient Norrland / Swedish region Elkhounds and Vida will allow that to flourish.

Maya is so full of life and energy!

I just wanted to check in and let you know how Maya is doing. Life with her has been a blast! She is so full of life and energy. She is always ready to join us on an adventure or just cuddle on the couch. She is currently playing rough with Stefan in the lounge, but always knows when to stop. Thank you, Janine and Stefan

Ragnar is Doing Exceptionally Well!

Once he understands what I want from him and the purpose of the action, there is no stopping him. He is an excellent guard dog. My entire family appreciates his working qualities. We all love him very much, he is a very loving and charming dog. Best wishes, Barbara


Aksel Is The Same Awesome Guy You Said He Would Be!

Hi Merv, Now that we have land he has redeveloped more instinct and a leaner diet has him looking more trim! all the best, Michael and the Guy Family.


Shaka is learning fast and extremely comfortable with his new surroundings!

Hi Ashten it's Jordon, I just want to thank you and your father for everything you have done. The entire process was so professional, from your website, youtube channel, and e-mail communication. Shaka was well behaved in the air port and like you said he fell asleep as soon as the plane took off. I am so glad that I chose your kennel over the others in Alberta. Shaka is a great dog, he's learning fast, and is getting extreamly confortable with his new surroundings. I will provide pictures as soon as possible . Thanks again! Jordon Bernard .

Shaka and JordonShaka and Jordon
