HONIAHAKA

Home of Northern Inuit Dogs American Wolfdogs and Wolfalikes  




Having both been raised 


with Animals they have 


been part of our lives 


growing up.


Andy on a Farm and 


myself with every pet I 


could have. My first love were horses and German shepherd dogs.


Spending many years competing at all levels in equestrian sports 


which then led to breeding and spending many years with our heads 


stuck in a stud book or two striving to breed the best.

Having always had German shepherds we always loved the wolfy 


look and was led to a breed called Utonagan by a equine friend of 


ours. We purchased our first wolfie looking dog in 2003 and found 


our first backyard breeder, sadly our first experience wasn’t a good 


one and our beloved wolfie was PTS at 17 months old after she 


could take no more suffering from severe hip dysplacia and 


crumbling spine.



2005 saw our love of wolfie looking dogs increase when we put our 


name down for our first Northern Inuit, born on my birthday it was 


sure to be an omen…..Persuaded to take her sister too we came 


home with Anya and Saskia they were 12 weeks old and the start of 


the love affair grew.


We have had many highs through the years, being asked to become 


breeders with the NIS and spending 9 years on the committee, 


introducing health testing and keeping the pedigrees in order. We 


have won many a championship in the show ring with our dogs and 


have put our everything into producing beautiful top class dogs.



We have also been doing breed stands across the country for the 


last 10 years which has increased to around 15 a year now,which 


keeps us and our Honiahaka team busy. It’s a real pleasure being 


invited each year to attend such events.



We have sadly had many lows over the years too. Any type of 


breeding can be heart breaking especially when the founder animals 


were never health tested. We have had some health problems in our 


line which were brushed to one side as one off, but when it happens 


again you know there is an issue that needs addressing.Sadly for us 


we were hung out to dry by our society and were blamed for the 


issues. We have since removed ourselves from the breed club and 


with the help of the lovely people at the AHT have surged forward to 


find out what’s causing these issues and where they originally came 


from. We are pleased to say our hard work and patience has paid 


off and we are very close to finding the gene which has caused 


these issues.



2015 saw us venture out of our comfort zone and we imported our 


first American wolfdog and then in 2016 we added our second. You 


can read about these on their own page.


2016 saw the start of cyber bulling and slandering toward us, Its just 


shown us that whatever good you try to do and achieve in life and 


are at the top of your game, you will always come across groups 


who will try to discredit you. We carry on doing the best we can and 


we still held our heads high even when we wanted just to give 


up...but that is what these bullies want.


2016 also  saw the start of our outcross programme. The Gene pool 


for the Northern Inuit dog is so small that it needs an injection of 


new blood., there is no point is saying “we” have x amount of new 


lines when they all still go back to the same dog which is in one of 


my pedigree’s 15 times !!

 

We have opted to use some other wolfie breeds in our lines to give it 


the injection of good health it needs. 


Hopefully we will keep the wonderful soft temperament of our dogs 


and bring is some much needed new blood and better health.


2017 will see us carry on our goal to improve the wolfie breeds 


health, we will carry on health testing our dogs and hope to have 


some beautiful babies along the way, we will also carry on staying 


open and true to our owners and future owners.


Mid 2017 saw the start of the HWCC which is run by some lovely 


wolfalike owners, and also saw our 3rd and final wolfdog puppy join 


our pack. We hope you enjoy our website and insight to our lives, our 


arms are always welcoming and the kettle is always warm.




Here at Honiahaka we pride ourselves with the way we care for and 


look after our dogs.

Due to living on a Farm we are lucky enough to have the space to 


have so many, they are first and foremost our pets and part of our 


family. We do not subject our dogs to live whelping cam's we feel 


that this is a private time for owner and bitch, but always keep our 


puppy owners up to date during the event when time permits.


We Only breed our Bitches if we have a waiting list before they are 


mated. All our dogs are fed the best quality food, and we are firm 


believers that raw is best !! they have regular daily exercise, our 


dogs have day runs which they love and come in to the family home 


for cuddles and bedtime of a night.
 

We are honest and open with our puppy owners and potential puppy 


owners alike, and are happy to let you contact them to find out what 


we are like for yourselves.
 

When getting a puppy from us be prepared to also acquire an 


extended family too, we like to be kept up to date on what our 


puppies are doing with regular photos and feed back. We organise 


regular pack walks so all our puppy owners can meet each other 


and swap notes, we also hold puppy BBQ's in the summer, and 


camping weekends, weather permitting. Potential puppy owners are 


encouraged to come and meet us and our pack, and also to come 


on one of our pack walks or shows so they can see the good and 


bad in our breeds.


We compete our dogs in companion shows and have also done 


scootering with them for fun, we don't push our dogs to do things 


they do not enjoy , if you feel you will fit into the Honiahaka pack 


then please feel free to contact us to arrange a visit, if we are not for 


you we are always happy to help you find the right breeder for your 


lifestyle.
