We have lived in Vail Iowa for over 20 years. Our family has been actively involved in the community and my children attended the local school. Our farm is located on several hundred acres of family land that has been in the family for many generations. As a farm family we understand the value of hard work and the importance of the role our animals play in our lives.
I have been blessed with three wonderful children. My oldest daughter's children are visitors regularly and helpers when I need it. They spend as much time with the dogs if not more than I do myself. My middle daughter Ashley handles all of the technology related items like managing our website and Facebook page. I'm learning, but I'm not ready to take on all of it. My youngest comes home and plays with the pups and helps me when I need it. My kids and grandchildren are very important to me, I count my dogs as my kids.
We operate on a farm and our dogs are raised outside in their own building that provides them with room to play. We do walks and free runs when needed, but we also have wild animals to keep them safe from. One thing is for sure, huskies shed a lot. You could create a new dog with all the fur they lose every week. With raising the dogs outside our puppies are also outside. We built 'crate' like bunkers for each of the moms to birth in. This helps with crate training when a pup goes home to a house where they will be inside. We have had some really good results with bell training and crate training.
