Anna & Jan 2020



After the heart breaking loss of our first Northern Inuit in 2017, we 


didn't think we would ever consider getting another one but 


gradually we realised that we couldn't live without this wonderful 


breed in our lives.  And so the Honiahaka magic began...….


We first met Tracey and Andy in 2018 and immediately knew they 


were the breeders for us.  It was a very emotional experience 


meeting their beautiful pack but the love they felt for their dogs was 


so evident during the afternoon that we spent with them.  They 


patiently answered all of our questions, and we left with our names 


on the Honiahaka waiting list.


Ten months later the beautiful Raphael came into our lives and we 


couldn't believe our luck when Tracey told us he would be ours.  We 


were invited to visit on a weekly basis to get to know our boy and 


had first-hand experience of the amazing start in life that Honiahaka 


puppies get.  If only all breeders were like this.


Raphie is now a year old and we can't pretend it has always been 


plain sailing as they are certainly not the easiest breed. He suffers 


from terrible separation anxiety and always has to be left with 


a 'babysitter' (and even then he often howls until we get back).  He 


was also very destructive and at times we despaired that he'd ever 


grow out of it but he has improved an awful lot.  You need to be 


prepared to put a lot of time, effort and hard work into their training 


but it is so worth it as you will be rewarded with the most loyal and 


wonderful companion you will ever have in your life.


Not only do you get a stunning dog but also the friendship of Tracey 


and Andy and the wider Honiahaka family so you always have 


someone to answer any questions and offer help and advice when 


needed.  Everyone we have met has been so lovely and we have 


made some life long friends. 


Be prepared to be stopped at least once on every walk as no matter 


where you go, these dogs get an enormous amount of attention and 


it's amazing the amount of new friends we've made as a result of 


having 'Mr Sociable' Raphael in our lives.  We can honestly say that 


it has been such a life enriching experience.


If you want a wolfalike or Northern Inuit in your life, then look no 


further than Tracey and Andy, who are without a doubt the best 


breeders around and let the Honiahaka magic begin for you. 




Donna & Barry 2020


It was August 2013 at Essex Dog Day, that we first met Tracey 

and learned of the Northern Inuit dog.

We were leaving the show with our young Hungarian Vizsla 

puppy Amber after a lovely day.

As we passed some marquee's on the way back to the car, we 

heard a squeal saying "aw look, it's a Stanley" We stopped and 

met Georgina, Tracey's daughter who had a Vizsla of her own.


Drawn into the marquee of Honiahaka Northern Inuits we were 

met with the most amazing looking dogs that I've ever seen. 

They were huge & looked like wolves & from that day we were 

hooked.

We had a chat to Tracey and discovered she lived just up the 

road to Barry's childhood home. Small world.  We took away a 

leaflet and decided to have a look at the website that night.


We spent many nights looking at the website and googling the 

breed.  I contacted Tracey and we were invited to come and 

visit them and their pack. Before the visit there was a show 

being held at the field near Tracey's farm where many owners 

got together to show off this beautiful breed of dog.  

We decided to pay a visit and I still remember driving slowly 

across that field I've now come to know so fondly from many 

annual Honiahaka camps since, where we were met by a sea of 

wolfie looking dogs and I'm not going to lie I was scared to get 

out. But everyone was so friendly and we got to chat to many 

owners about this amazing breed & find out more.


Fast forward to our visit and our fate was sealed when we 

entered the kitchen of dreams & were accepted into the pack. I 

remember going out into the yard and being surrounded by 

these stunning creatures. Tracey and Andy are truly the most 

welcoming, friendly couple you could meet and put their heart 

and soul into bringing these beautiful dogs into people's lives.


We asked to be added to the puppy waiting list and from that 

day made sure we got involved in as much of the Honiahaka 

family as we could whilst waiting for our puppy. We visited 

shows, the annual camp, Christmas party and met lots of 

beautiful dogs and wonderful owners.


Tracey kept us informed on potential litters and we eagerly 

awaited the arrival of the puppies from Dream & Ochi's litter.  I 

remember the day Dream's labour began, I followed every 

puppy born on Facebook & marvelled in the colours and little 

toe beans.  On 12th November 2014 the Little Gem's Litter was 

born. We were chosen to be lucky owners of a beautiful dark 

girl when they were around 3 weeks old. Little Miss Yellow was 

to become our very own Jet. Kennel name Honiahaka Jet's 

Heart of Ruby. Tracey even asked if we had a favourite gem 

stone and Ruby is my birth stone.


Tracey and Andy are very keen for new owners to visit 

regularly and we were very eager to oblige, who doesn't love 

the smell of a puppy. It was truly a magical time.


The 8 weeks wait seemed forever but it was eventually time for 

us to collect our little bundle so off we set to Honiahaka Hilton 

as it has fondly become.  It hurt to take Jet away as you could 

see the love that Tracey & Andy put into every pup but we knew 

we'd be seeing lots more of them.  


Jet wasn't an easy puppy, she was terribly car sick in her first 

18mths or so, a very picky eater and also loved to chew! We 

crate trained her which was quite easy as she loved our Vizsla 

Amber and they got on so well but any time she was left alone 

or out of the crate she would chew. Good lesson, crate train 

those puppies & never leave anything laying around.


We started attending country shows with the Honiahaka team 

and soon became part of this huge extended family. Jet loved 

the shows and got to see some of her siblings as well as her 

mum & dad at the same time.  Honiahaka camp was a special 

time with owners coming from all around the world to share 

time together with a love of this stunning breed.


Around December 2015, a year after Jet was born we enquired 

about going on the puppy list again to add another Honiahaka 

baby to our pack.  Then fate sent Bourbon, Jet's brother back 

to Tracey. Bourbon was our favourite boy in the litter but at the 

time we wanted a girl. Well Bourbon was put up for rehoming 

and after a long talk Barry & I decided we'd like to take him on 

(cats permitting as I had 2). 


Bourbon came home in February of 2016 and we're pleased to 

say passed the cat test despite having never been around 

them. He is such a gentle and sensitive boy and it's not been 

an easy ride (he has quite bad reactions to fireworks so Sept to 

Jan is a nightmare for us) but he's a big part of the family and 

an amazing looking boy.


I would say these dogs are not for first time owners, they can 

be stubborn and difficult & can suffer with separation anxiety 

but they are so loving and loyal, I'd never have another breed.  

They need regular grooming and can blow their coats for what 

seems like forever. They don't need as much exercise as you'd 

expect, around 45 minutes twice a day.  


From that one August day I can happily say we've made some 

amazing friends along the way and have the most beautiful 

dogs to live by our side.


Fay Mazerolle  2020



We first met Tracey and Andy and the beautiful northern Inuit 


wolfalike when we was at one of the many dog shows they 


attend, we were made to feel welcome by them both and 


everyone else in the Honiahaka family. 


 After having a very unsuccessful journey with another breeder 


(if you can even call them that) we were  very unsure about 


having another wolfdog in the family as we have children and 


had had a bad experience. 


 We followed the Honiahaka crew around for a couple of years 


and was nice to hear about everyone’s successful stories and 


took on board what everyone had said with advice and support. 


We decided to go on the waiting list we were after a black boy if 


possible so we knew the wait would be worth it. 


 October 2019 a litter of ‘Dreamy puddings’ was born and 


thankfully we were chosen for a forever family for  little 


‘Honiahaka nova Black Forest’ who was to be  ours.


 We was invited down on numerous occasions to see the pups 


with mum in a beautiful big area for the pups to learn and grow. 


The way Tracey introduces noises and different environment 


for the pups to be in meant that when we picked our pup up on 


27th December he was not fazed by anything or anyone. 


Chinook is now a healthy 8 month old pup and is a pleasure to 


have as one of our family. He has the perfect temperament that 


we could of wished for and a lap dog as well (45kg is not a 


lapdog but he thinks he is) We can not thank Tracey and Andy 


enough for all they have done for all the litters they have. When 


you get a pup from Tracey and Andy you get support from the 


whole of the Honiahaka family no question is stupid question 


and is quickly answered by one of the many Honiahaka crew, 


you are never alone. We would definitely recommend Tracey 


and Andy to anyone who is after a gentle giant. 



Meg Cregg-Parker  2020



What's it like to own one of these dogs? 


Firstly you never own this breed they own you, all of your heart 


and soul and beds and sofas. 


They are a breed like no other, their intelligence makes them 


quick learners whether that it for training or figuring out how to 


get what they want. Which means they will try and break rules 


and boundaries so you need to be firm with them and keep on 


top of training inside and outside the house. They are so loving 


so much so they want to share your sofa and bed if you let 


them, which means separation training is best started when 


young to stop separation anxiety as this breed can suffer with 


it as they love to be part of the family and don't want to miss 


out. 


They are super friendly and will continue to be, given the right 


upbringing with socialisation, saying hello to everyone and 


every dog. Teaching them from a young age on how to act 


around young children is the best thing to do as they do grow 


up very quickly in height and can become intimidating to those 


tiny humans which given half the chance will end in kisses! 


When out be prepared to get stopped and asked a million 


questions on the breed, their looks and temperament. This 


leads to lots of conversations with strangers so being 


someone who doesn't mind answering them all is definitely a 


plus. Despite all that attention this breed can become 


destructive. Which can mean you come home to the carpet 


pulled up and the underlayer ripped into tiny pieces, or 


remotes being chewed so plenty of positive play and showing 


what can or can't be toys. Crate training these dogs is always a 


good idea even if you don't like crates. We had never used one 


before but was the best thing to do to stop a lot of unwanted 


behaviours. We are lucky in that having changed my job to a 


dog walker mine comes with me to work. He has taken to this 


job like he has always done it. So many compliments of his 


temperament and his looks which I say Thank you for but it all 


started with the building blocks from Tracey and us as owners 


adding to them. I have always said the dog is a reflection of 


you. The time and effort you put into them really does show. 


Owning a Honiahaka dog also comes with a huge family behind 


it. Who are there to ask questions or advice. The meet ups are 


just like seeing the extended family and getting to see your 


dogs litter mates, or the new puppies to the family makes them 


so enjoyable and fun for you and the dogs. This family also 


asks for help which we did when it came to fostering a puppy 


who was set to live abroad. We were given the highest honour 


off Tracey to mold this puppy ready for her new home. 


Carrying on in Tracey's footsteps was not an easy task and 


showed just how much of her time, effort and love go into each 


puppy before they leave. Each one of the puppies Tracey 


breeds hold a piece of her heart. You aren't just getting a pet, 


you are getting a life changing soul mate who comes from a 


breeder who puts in endless time, effort and love for the best 


health and temperament tested dog's.



Bernice Harrison 2020



What’s it like to be owned by a Northern Inuit?


Wonderful. Hard work. Rewarding. Chaotic. Messy. Fun. These 


would be just a few of the words I would use to describe living 


with this breed. You need to become the alpha in your home; 


these dogs need a leader, boundaries, training and a firm hand.



They are adorable, friendly, loving to the extreme, beautiful, full 


of personality and the best breed there is.  A sense of humour 


is an absolute must.


But you need to be prepared. If you are precious about your 


garden, then this is not the breed for you. If you are worried 


about your furniture – forget it. Do you own a carpet cleaner, 


like a Vax? You’ll need one. What about your normal vacuum 


cleaner? Does it work – I mean really work? Because this fur 


sticks and moulting season is like no other.



My family became part of the Honiahaka pack back in 2008. I 


decided I wanted my children to grow up with a dog, to know 


what it’s like to love another soul and share your childhood 


with your best pal.



I grew up with a German Shephard and Richard grew up with 


Spaniels – so we were coming at this with different ideas. My 


concern over the health of the German Shepard breed meant I 


was not prepared to home one. That’s when we came across 


the Northern Inuit and instantly fell in love.


We researched and spoke to different breeders and to be 


honest, were left wanting. Wanting more answers to our many 


questions. We found Honiahaka, called them and they were the 


first breeders to ask us to visit them and their pack.



I think both Tracey and Andy remember our first visit as I pretty 


much interviewed them! It’s funny now and we laugh about it, 


but we turned up with a list of questions on hand and drilled 


them until they had answered them all! They made us so 


welcome, their kitchen quickly became a favourite place with 


tea and cake for all.


My first boy was SnowBo Bear, he was pure white and stole my 


heart the minute I held him, he was about a week old and the 


smallest of his litter of 3 whites. His mum was Anya, and this 


was her 2nd litter. Bo had a little bit of a rough start and Tracey 


and Andy did everything they could for him. He stayed with 


them until he was 11 weeks old before coming home with us. 


Bo was a special pup and he grew into a 49kg giant bear of a 


dog, who thought nothing of sitting on your lap. He was such a 


softy and absolutely adored from day one.


But Bo was my dog and Richard wanted one with a mask, so 


we promptly joined the waiting list for another in 2009 – this 


time it was Bo’s sister Moley’s turn to be mum. She had 9 pups 


and we picked out the cheeky chap and called him Indigo Blue – 

Indy for short. Well… Bo had been such an easy pup that we 


thought we’d easily cope with two…


Boy did we have a wake-up call! Indy was, quite frankly, a very 


naughty boy. He hated the crate – we tried for a year and had 


no sleep due to his howling at night. He ate a sofa – he teethed 


so bad that he took it out on our sofa and destroyed it. Both 


boys would steal food, Bo was a terrible thief and the list is 


endless of the food that dog managed to get his paws on. Indy 


was a barker and a howler – he suffered with terrible separation 


anxiety and couldn’t be apart from Bo.


One particularly memorable incident took place at a puppy 


training class. Indy was left tied to the dog grill in the back of 


the car, the kids playing nearby, while I was taking Bo through 


his paces. Indy was screaming as usual but as he was some 


distance away, there was nothing I could do. About 10 minutes 


in and Indy is racing across the field with the kids chasing him 


– he comes haring towards me and Bo with the dog grill 


dragging behind him as he is still attached. It was both 


mortifying and hilarious at the same time, and a story I 


regularly tell.


Indy was such a character, full of love and fun but very 


determined to get his own way. He left a gaping whole in our 


family when we lost him in 2018.


February 2020 and we adopted Raven. Raven was nearly 7 


months old when Tracey called and asked me if we would 


consider homing her. She was a quite anxious and nervous, 


but my old boy Bo took her under his paw and looked after her 


for a little while, until he passed over the bridge at the end of 


March.


Raven is simply the sweetest girl. She has a wonderful nature, 


soft and kind. She has grown in confidence and we have all 


bonded with her. But… She is a magpie – we should have 


called her Magpie as she steals things. Nothing, I mean nothing 


is out of her reach and nothing is safe. While I write this, she 


has stolen Richards running cap and eaten it.



Don’t be fooled by an NI’s daft ways, they are very intelligent 


and get easily bored. They need stimulus, lots of exercise and 


they eat a lot of food. They can be very needy, and doors are 


not barriers to them. Your stuff is their stuff. If Raven feels she 


is not getting enough attention (when she wants it_, she’ll walk 


off with your stuff to get it.


If you’ve read all this and think you are ready to be owned by 


an NI, then look no further than Tracey and Andy. They are 


wonderful breeders, doing all they can to support this breed, 


ensuring their health and wellbeing are paramount. If they let 


you have one of their pups, then they must think you are 


special too because not just anyone gets to become part of this 


special pack. It’s 12 years since we joined the pack and I am 


very grateful for the love of all my dogs and that I can call both 


Tracey and Andy my friends.

Jane Puncher  2020



One day you meet someone or see something that attracts 


your attention, you don’t know why, but when you decide to 


look further you are led onto a path that you would never have 


thought about. 


 That is exactly what happened to us out of the blue on a sunny 


day out. This new path started over nine years ago when Dave 


and I were at a country garden show, when we saw a lady with 


two dogs of a breed we didn’t recognise. I have always been a 


cat person and liked dogs but to own one wasn’t on any 


agenda, so I was surprised with myself when I went over to ask 


about the dogs who were Northern Inuit’s (NI’s). Dave had his 


introduction later when he saw the husband sitting with these 


two and went over to ask if he could say hello to them. 


 During the ‘hello’ it was explained that they were hoping that 


the female was pregnant and that their male was not the father. 


Later at home, I googled this breed and everything I read was 


good! 


 After finding out more, we looked for breeders and found one 


quite close to us, Tracey at Honiahaka and before we really 


knew what we were doing we had arranged a date for a visit! 



The day arrived to met Tracey along with her husband, Andy 


and we ended up in the kitchen chatting and having a coffee. 


Questions came thick and fast from all of us as Tracey 


explained about the breed, both positives and negatives. After 


what seemed a short time (almost four hours) we were invited 


to meet the pack, little did we know this was the last part of 


Tracey’s assessment of us, if the pack didn’t like us then our 


chances of owning a Honiahaka pup in the future was finished. 


can only say that meeting the pack was an experience to 


remember, we were led out into the large yard and Tracey just 


let all of the dogs out in one go, to be faced with nine fully 


grown NI’s was just fantastic! They came bowling over to see 


who we were and within minutes we were making a fuss of as 


many as we could reach and certainly cuddling a good few. 


After this glorious meeting we were now potentially part of the 


pack and our names were added to the list. We had told Tracey 


that we were hoping for a silver girl, but didn’t mind if she 


thought a female of another colour was best for us. What 


seemed only a few weeks later Tracey contacted us with a 


photo of her holding a little baby girl who was apricot in 


colouring, she said ‘Hi, I think you wanted a silver girl”. We 


arranged to see her as soon as possible, but not at her home 


which was puzzling. We followed her a few miles and went 


inside a home only to meet the pair we had met at the show – it 


was just meant to be! The female had been pregnant then and 


now had three pups, one female and two males. The Dad of 


these pups was Tracey’s male white NI, Bear. We fell in love 


with this apricot bundle of fur, she was beautiful who would 


turn into a silver NI. 


 A few weeks later and this girl pup came home to a new name – 

Ayla and we have never looked back, especially when she did 


turn into a beautiful silver girl. We didn’t know it at the time, but 


we were also joining the wonderful family of Honiahaka NI 


owners. 


 This family meets up a couple of times a year at Tracey and 


Andy’s farm for a weekend of fun and games, keeps in contact 


via Facebook which includes asking for advice on any subject 


to do with owning an NI dog, on top of great advice from Tracey 


and Andy when things get tough! They also take a few of their 


dogs to various country shows and if possible, many of us go 


to help out, giving us a day out and the dogs time to have 


different experiences as well as loads of fuss from visitors. 



Then almost 6 years ago, we had a call from Tracey to ask us if 


we wanted another pup – of course we did! We went over to 


met our new pup, Chaya, who we immediately loved to bits, but 


we were told he did have medical problems. 


 We then found out that four of nine pups were born with 


problems, his problems are various, one being his left eye, 


blind due to a detached retina at birth, and may eventually have 


to be removed. He also has poor hips where the hip socket is 


poorly formed so the leg bone can cause pain when it wobbles 


around. His problems and those of the other three were caused 


when two dogs, who both carry a certain gene, are mated. Poor 


Tracey was devasted to have pups like these and in 


collaboration with the Animal Health Trust in Suffolk who did a 


long and thorough research into this. They concluded that as 


long as the male and/or the female were free of this gene, then 


all future pups would be unaffected. They confirmed that 


Tracey’s breeding had nothing to do with this, it was just part 


of the breed’s DNA but could be bred out with careful pairing. 


Tracey now has all her breeding dogs and bitches tested to 


confirm if this DNA is present before planning any future 


pairings. This information has been shared with the 


associations for NI’s in the hope that no more future breeding 


will produce pups affected like this. It is a shame that this was 


not looked into before by other breeders, but at least each of 


these affected dogs have a loving home with carefully chosen 


owners and a happy life with whatever extra care they may 


need.


 In short, you will not find a more honest or ethical breeder 


than Tracey, she is dedicated and goes above and beyond in 


the care of all her dogs and owners. She is always available for 


help and advice so when you get your own NI, you know you 


only have to call if you need help. The last point is that you get 


the friendship of other owners as well, either on Facebook or 


on the phone



Trudy Harper  2020



When we decided to get our wolfalike boy a little brother or 

sister we already new it had to be a Honiahaka puppy, having 

experienced their shows and meeting them up close and 

personal at the Detling show in Kent, our mind was set. 

 From the moment we went on the waiting list we felt part of the 

Honiahaka family. We were invited to walks and play dates with 

our boy, where we made new friends and learnt so much more 

about life with a wolfalike breed. Our boy was treated as if he 

was one of their very own puppies and he made friends with 

dogs just like him. When our puppy was born we got constant 

pupdates and invites to visit so we could build a bond with our 

new little family member. I held my baby girl Newty when she 

was only 2 weeks old and I was smitten. Given the option to 

choose our top 3, I had placed her as my 2nd choice, but she 

had always been my no.1, I just didn’t think we would be lucky 

enough to be chosen to be owned by her. Everything was an 

open book, full of advice, support and guidance. There were 

constant updates on Newty’s development, her likes and 

dislikes, her social interactions with the wider pack and people 

who visited. When the day arrived to take her home, we were 

given the most amazing puppy pack full of healthy treats, toys 

and information. The puppy pack was bigger than Newty 

herself. Tracey and Andy not only fulfilled our dream of being 

owned by a Honiahaka Wolfalike, they gave us a bundle of 

unconditional love in the form of our girl Newty, support and 

friendship that we hold dear and most importantly a place to 

belong. When you decide to get a puppy, you think of the love 

and dedication you’ll give them throughout their whole life. But 

when you get a Honiahaka puppy, you also get a lifetime of 

love, support and guidance from the moment they are born and 

for the rest of their days by the very hands that help bring them 

into this world.

So today it the 8th year anniversary of me receiving my first 


Northern Inuit from the UK into South Africa. 


It is fitting I explain our "journey" with the Honiahaka Family.


It began many years ago with me harassing one Tracey Fowler 


in FB ... on email ... and finally on a good old fashioned 


telephone call ... this took 2 years people ... Tracey was 


naturally skeptical to send one of her precious pups to Africa ... 


and between us we didn't have a corking clue how we were 


going to achieve this ..... but let me not digress ... the answer 


was initially a huge "NO" ... but I was determined ... I think 


getting Huskies in the meantime really helped our cause ... if 


you can handle a husky then you are worth your salt ... 


maybe .... I not only wanted 1 NI I wanted 3 ... 2 bitches and a 


stunning stud ... I really wanted to be the first (and as it 


transpires the only) breeder of the NI in South Africa .... I had 


years of "breeding" experience having been an owner of a pack 


of Olderhill German Sheps in South Africa (5 of them) from the 


original breeding pack from the UK. Slowly slowly Tracey 


relented and she took charge of my 3 pups who came to South 


Africa. First Nana (Nana Long Legs for those that remember) 


who arrived on our shores today 8 years ago ... some months 


later we got Freya slightly delayed as she injured her leg (I was 


offered another puppy but no I wanted her - funny enough her 


injury was placed in the hands of a South African Vet based in 


the UK) ... then we got Thor some months later from Angie 


Freeman .. my pack was complete. I only bred my girls on their 


3rd season - they were not emotionally ready before that ... and 


we had around 5 very successful litters in South Africa. Not 


huge average 4 - 6 pups but very welcomed by their new 


owners who to date I am in touch with on a Whattsapp group .... 


we lost one pup sadly due to poaching on a farm and snares 


and I lost contact with one owner .... we have re-homed a few 


during this time due to personal circumstances but all my pups 


are accounted for and living the life ... What can I say about 


Honiahaka and Tracey and Andy ... so much more but I think 


the biggest accolade would be taking my 20 years plus 


experience with dogs adding the NI to my family and emulating 


their deep love and attendance to the breed on many levels ... 


This was a very successful paring ...

I cannot praise these breeders enough! But I'll try my hardest! 

 We first met Tracey at one of there shows, we were then 

invited to meet there pack, and of course we became smitten! 

We were lucky enough to be welcomed by the pack and Tracey! 

where she inquired about our lifestyle to ensure we would be 

able to give the future pooch the best life! We passed the test! 

And went on the waiting list!.. we waited for 3 years to get our 

boy as Ben wanted a specific colour and gender. 

However we were offered others when litters were born.

 Even though we didn't get have a pup we still went to shows 

and camps and party's! and felt so welcomed by the whole 

Honiahaka family! Getting to meet everyone and hear there 

story's, to help us prepare ourselves. 

Then it happened. The knights of the round table were born! 

each litter is given a title. This was theirs) Tracey informed us 

we would be getting one of these pups and asked us to choose 

3 of our favourites. She would then match the pup to the owner. 

Tracey and Andy went above and beyond for these pups, one in 

particular ( Percy) known now as Timba who was very little and 

without daily tube feeding would not have made it! He is now 

grown up strong as ever and such a beautiful character! 

We were lucky enough to get our top choice. THE KING. KING 

Arthur! Needless to say we were overwhelmed! So were then 

able to do weekly visits with the pups, getting to know them 

and building a bond! Then came home day. And it was

amazing ! As well as being given a gift bag of goodies and 

advice pamphlets and books and foods and treats! We got toys 

from other members of the group to bring him home with! It 

was so incredible! Since then, every day we have needed any 

advice or concerned about anything the Honiahaka family have 

been there every step of the way! Group walks, Party's, Camps. 

Fantastic family!!! 

 Then! Tracey and Andy had to re-home one of there females 

due to a pack shift, and maple needed a new home. Tracey 

always knew from day 1 when she got maple I was besotted 

with her and wanted to steel maple instead of waiting for Koda, 

Which obviously couldn't happen. But! Then when maple 

needed to be re-homed. We begged Tracey for her, and so it 

began again. 

The meet and greets with koda and our spaniel, and then home 

visits, then a weekend stay... which lead to us keeping her 

forever! 

Needless to say the pups are perfect together! Both over 2 now.  
The dogs Tracey and Andy have are incredibly beautiful in 

every way! 

There Temperaments are incredible they are incredible with 

other dogs! people and kids. 

The support that we get from Tracey and Andy and the 

Honiahaka family is something you should definitely be apart 

of. 

So if you're considering it. Stop considering... and get on that 

list! 

Thank you for reading!

I first discovered Northern Inuits in 2006 when searching for a 


new dog. As a child I had a German shepherd cross that looked 


like a wolf and had always been in love with wolfy looking 


dogs. After moving out of my parents I had 2 German 


shepherds, that I sadly lost in a relationship break up. I decided 


I would like a different breed and began my search online. I 


researched a few different breeds including Northern Inuits and 


they were the only breed to tick all the boxes for what I was 


looking for in a companion. I then began searching breeders, 


and contacted the ones I came across with websites, including 


Tracey. Out of all the breeders I spoke to, Tracey was the 


helpful and the most honest when it came to the breed. 


We proceeded to talk around once a week on the phone (sorry 


for being a pest lol) and any questions I had were always 


answered. After a couple of months of talking I asked if I could 


go on her waiting list for the next litter, I was over the moon 


when she said yes. Xero was born to Saskia and Storm in May 


2007, she was a little patchy beauty. She became my best friend 


and soul mate. I also made the mistake of taking her 


everywhere with me and as a consequence she suffered from 


separation anxiety when I wasn't at home. 


A year after having Xero I decided one wasn't enough lol. So I 


asked Tracey if I could go on the list for a Moley and Squims 


baby. 


Abberline was born in February 2009, a perfect little white girl. 


Unfortunately in 2011, Abberline disappeared in suspicious 


circumstances. Tracey and Andy were fantastic and when she 


was found they drove me to collect her. Sadly Xero went to the 


rainbow bridge in July 2018 aged 11. Again Tracey and Andy 


were brilliant. I said that I would like another nitwit eventually 


but that I wasn't ready yet. Once I was ready I went on the 


waiting list for an Eden and Kaos pup. Fira was born in 


February 2020 and came home just as lock down began.


Tracey has been great with advice on how to socialise the 


puppies during lock down. I will always have a Honiahaka 


puppy as they go above and beyond for their dogs and it 


shows. Nothing is kept secret and any health issues that arise 


are always discussed. I apologise for the small essay, but I 


can't praise them enough. 



James Gilby 2020



Me and Mandy have nothing but praise for Tracey and 


Andy, and how they care for their wonderful breed.


We went to their house and were introduced to the pack,and we 


were aware that they were watching our reactions to make sure 


that we were going to be good owners,and rightly so as there 


are so many bad breeders out there and we are so glad that we 


chose them as they obviously care so much for their dogs.We 


paid the deposit and waited with baited breath for any litters to 


see which would be ours. In August 2018 our little Percy, now 


called Timba, was born and after a few visits we brought him 


home. We are so pleased with him, handsome and with such a 


loving temperament,which Tracey and Andy obviously have  


instilled in the breed. We have visited them since and been to 


their camp days,and been very welcomed and being a member 


of their club ,there is always someone you can turn to for help 


if needed. For me, the best breeders out there.

Tracey and Andy are the top breeders for us. It was worth it to 


wait for almost 2 years and to travel overseas for a puppy from 


them. When we pay them a visit, they were so open and honest, 


showing us everything concerning their dogs and the kennel 


and taking hours the time answering all our question. From 


oveseas we can follow every step on the growth and the 


development before and after the birth of our puppy, so  


amazing. My compliment on the website, very cozy website but 


also well arranged. 


Jenny Watson



I first met Tracey in 2013 (I think Lily pup was 3 months). From 


that day I fell in love with the Inuits. Unfortunately I am unable 


to own one, but I was welcomed into the pack like another 


owner. Since then the 'family' had grown. More beautiful 


puppies have arrived. I have made some of my closest friends 


and absolutely adore the Honiahaka breed. They are the 


sweetest natured dogs you could ever meet and Tracey never 


ever forgets her puppies and vice versa.





Sarah Jane Reeves


We researched a lot before contacting any breeder. ...Goggled 


goggled constantly . We looked at each northern Inuit breeders 


page and can I just say traveling to the North Pole wouldn't of 


been a problem we just wanted to find the right breeder. 


After reading and talking via inbox with different breeders we 


decided to ring Tracey and Andy to ask what we do next . She 


explained we would be invited to meet her pack and they would 


also want to ask us questions to make sure we are picking the 


right breed for us. When we arrived at there house we couldn't 


believe how  well set out , clean and friendly everyone was !!!!! 


The dogs were beautiful and really friendly. We stayed for what 


seemed like ten minutes but was hour’s lol chatting about 


everything to do with the northern Inuit. At this present time 


there were no girlie's pregnant. Tracey obviously saw 


something good in us as she put us on her waiting list . As 


soon as she had a confirmed mating she emailed scan pictures 


of hopes and yuri puppies which was amazing as we followed 


the pregnancy every step of the way smile emoticon. As soon 


as hope was in labour we all followed via Facebook it was 


really exciting! !! Tracey took pictures every day with a written 


update on progress etc.. THEN came the stressful day of 


Tracey having to carefully select from her list who was going to 


be able to have a pup, as the list is bigger than the amount of 


pups. This for us was nerve wracking as we really wanted a 


pup. 


We then got told we were having a little girl miss lilac ♡♡♡♡♡ 


omg I cried for about a week with joy !!!! We were allowed to 


see her as soon as hope was ok with visitors. Hope was a 


brilliant mummy and Tracey a brilliant fur mummy. We saw 


bellatrix every two weeks . Us choosing Tracey and her 


choosing us was the best thing that's happened to us since 


having our daughter 8 years ago . Bellatrix is now 6 months old 


and since bringing her home we have had endless information 


when ever we have needed it and have met up with all the 


honiahaka family lots of times. Beware if you do choose them 


as your breeder your stuck with us mad lot too lol xxxx



Andy & Ness Bassoli


When doing our research into the Northern Inuit breed we 


contacted other breeders with various questions. Only Tracey 


responded in a polite and honest way. We decided to attend a 


show to meet Tracey, Andy and their dogs. We immediately fell 


in love with Kami and knew that these were the breeders for us. 


We were lucky enough to visit Tracey and Andy at their home 


where we met the rest of the pack which was an amazing 


experience. After attending a few more shows and meeting 


more of the Honiahaka family we asked to be put on the Kami 


and Ochi puppy list. Ten months later our handsome boy, Shila, 


was born and our lives have changed forever in many ways. We 


have not only gained a new member of our family but have also 


gained the support and more importantly friendship of the 


extended Honiahaka family. The care and attention Tracey puts 


into every puppy is second to none. Health and good 


temperament are paramount and we would not go anywhere 


else for a puppy in the future. Andy & Ness


Linda Gelson


With the Honiahaka Tracey & Andy you don't only get a 


gorgeous pup you get a family also a help page no matter how 


silly you think the question is you’re not judged the advice is 


there the pups are loved by everyone they as breeders are 


wonderful always there when you want them with them it's not 


pay for pup take away and get on with it they do gatherings and 


shows which you will be made welcome to all and by all the 


pups never forget them they even sleep with the pups to make 


sure all ok and all the dogs are gorgeous.




Sharmayne


With most breeders you get a pup and that's it. With Tracey and 


Andy You get loads of support and a family. They put 


everything in to their pups, and the dogs love them even when 


they get older they never forget them. They always go mental 



when they see them even if it's been for ages. Me personally I 


wouldn't go to any over breeder then Tracey and Andy for a 


northern Inuit as a breeder they breed for the health and 


temperament not for money they are always there to help in 


any way they can.


Felicity Berry Summer 2013


I love dogs and like to study wolves; I respect the difference. 


One day in May 2012, when researching wolf-like dogs, a 


random click of my mouse opened Northern Inuit Dog rather 


than the Saarloos or Czecholsovakian Wolfdog and soon the 


Honiahaka website’s fabulous photos filled my screen! I could 


see and feel the love that was going into the breeding at 


Honiahaka. A call, an email, and a visit to the place I now call 


the Honiahaka Hilton followed in quick succession, and quite 


simply I fell in love with the breed.


LOVE is mentioned a lot in conjunction with Honiahaka. On my 


first visit I hoped to find a breeder who genuinely loves her 


dogs – that is my top criterion when looking to buy a pup, and 


was more than satisfied, in fact fulfilled to overflowing! The 


Honiahaka dogs looked superb, well-cared for in clean 


conditions and obviously ‘family’. There was a litter ready to 


leave and another on the way from a different bitch. I was able 


to meet mother and pups, the rest of the pack, and to have an 


unrushed cuppa and detailed conversation about the breed, 


and just as important - my circumstances.


At Honiahaka I could see that puppy welfare is absolutely a 


priority over financial gain. The bitches are not overbred, and a 


waiting list system is in operation. I was impressed by the 


responsible governance of the breeding programme, and I 


appreciated the thought and consideration going into 


assessing the suitability of the buyer, and later into the 


matching of pup to ‘forever home’ - another key phrase which 


speaks volumes about the Honiahaka attitude.




There was a littler due out of Sesi (Honiahaka Snow Princess) 


by Ochi (Mahlek Ochi Memorian bono fracture at Honiahaka). 


Tracey put my name down in her little book but I didn’t know if 


there would even be enough puppies for me to have one this 


time. Luckily, Sesi produced a large litter on June 1st, at the 


start of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee holiday weekend, and a 


bit later I was absolutely thrilled to be offered the only charcoal 


girl, Sesi’s firstborn, now named Honiahaka Haquihana Ribbon 


of Moonlight. I call her Inka and I love her to pieces.


Tracey slept with those puppies – as she does - for the first 3 


weeks of their lives, after which I was encouraged to visit my 


pup weekly. I was so excited, I loved my regular bonding visits, 


armed with some butcher’s treats for the dogs and cuddly toys 


for my girl. My phone filled up with photos – and actually that 


hasn’t changed in the year that’s passed since!




I treasure every day I spend with my clever alpha girl, Inka. She 


bonded instantly with my senior Golden Retriever, Poppy, and 


at Christmas I brought home another Honiahaka puppy for her 


to play with! Yes, they are addictive! In October I had fallen for 


Miss Silver, last born of the so-called Dream Team litter from 


Kizzy (Honiahaka Kizzy Kon-Tikki) and Spirit (Olderhill Alpha 


Winter's Sunset with Honiahaka). Honiahaka Autumn’s Dream, 


is a timber girl with a full chocolate mask and she’s going to be 


huge like her parents. A complete dreamer and cuddle monster, 


she is called Ruska, aka Roo Roo, and she’s fitted into my life 


as if she’s always belonged.


My Inuit girls, Inka and Roo, with their complementary 


personalities, adore each other, and they are absolutely my 


pride and joy. Both pups are perfect. It comforts me to know 


that if anything bad happened to me they would go back to 


Tracey, to Mummy Honiahaka, and be cared for.


From Honiahaka, Tracey said, you don’t just get a puppy, you 


join a whole family: the Honiahaka Family, and that is exactly 


what we are, FAMILY. For life.

To all those reading...


At first I thought I would just write “I started off with one 


Honiahaka Northern Inuit...now I have three...enough said.” and 


that would adequately say what I think of these wonderful dogs 


and the amazing people who are behind 'Team Honiahaka'.



Then I realised that in order to do them proper justice I'd 


probably have to write more than I did for my university 


dissertation...which I am sure wouldn't make the most 


thrilling read. Instead I guess I'll settle for a short(er) essay and 


hope you're still alive at the end of reading it.



We first met Tracey, Andy and Georgie on my 22nd Birthday in 


2009 after arranging a visit to meet 'the pack'. We traveled over 


100 miles to reach our destination; a strange oasis of green in 


the heart of Essex! We brought the cake, Tracey brought out 


the pack! I have never met a more beautiful breed than the 


Northern Inuit and after meeting them in the fur I was smitten 


and desperate for a puppy! Needless to say a 'quick visit' 


turned in to over six hours of talking anything and everything 


dog, whilst asking all those questions that first time Northern 


Inuit owners are sure to have and in turn being interviewed (in 


the best way possible) by Tracey and Andy to see if we were 


right to join the Honiahaka Family. I say Family and I mean 


it...when you put your name on 'the list' you don't just put your 


name down for a puppy, but gain a whole new extended family 


of puppy owners and friends to help you along your way! Our 


first introductions were with Claire, Vince and their son Joel, 


who had come to visit their beautiful puppy, Cana.



You can't help but leave with a smile on your face after 


spending the afternoon with such friendly and helpful people 


and a room full of gorgeous puppies. Nothing was hidden; we 


were told the highs and the lows of being owned by a Northern 


Inuit; warned about any health problems that might arise from 


owning a large breed dog; shown the health testing certificates 


for the Honiahaka Pack and explained to that no puppy leaves 


without a clean bill of health. With Tracey and Andy it's not just 


whether a Northern Inuit puppy is right for YOU, it's whether 


you are right for the puppy. We left late that evening knowing 


that we had found the right breeder, for whom these dogs 


obviously aren't a business or an opportunity to make money, 


but life-changing companions and a labour of love.




We skip ahead around six months now...to the point where we 


were anxiously waiting to hear that Anya and Squim's puppies 


were arriving. We were staying with the future in-laws...I don't 


think I spoke more than 4 sentences in those six hours of 


waiting. By then I had been forced to join Facebook – 


something I resolutely refused to do for over five years – and 


along with a couple of other expectant puppy owners, Rhonda 


and Sal, I was waiting anxiously for news. Because all of Team 


Honiahaka are very involved in the birthing of their litters we 


had a bit of a wait, but the chatter helped to pass the time and 


Georgie would come on regularly to update us with how many 


puppies had been born and how Anya and the pups were 


doing. There was a bit of a scare with two of the male puppies, 


but thanks to the love and quick actions of Tracey and Andy, 


both puppies survived and fed well!



In the beginning I had determined that I wanted a grey male 


with a full mask...but as soon as Tracey posted pictures of this 


little fat white puppy my heart melted. I knew he was the one 


and mercilessly annoyed everyone concerned until it was 


decided – Kiba was coming home with me!


We visited every couple of weeks until it was time to bring Kiba 


home. Tracey always made time for us, always patiently 


answered our questions (despite asking the same things over 


again) and always made sure her puppies got the very best 


possible start in life. Either Tracey or Andy sleeps with the 


puppies and mummy until they are at least three weeks of age, 


waking up every few hours to make sure the puppies are 


feeding and that they are warm and cosy enough, buried deep 


in hot water bottles and cuddly toys. Something that I always 


noticed was that the bedding was always clean, the area where 


the puppies were was always spotless and nobody was 


allowed into the house without being sprayed with a spray that 


kills harmful bacteria and using alcohol gel on their hands. 


Only the best for Honiahaka pups!



Finally the time came to bring Kiba home! We arrived at 


Honiahaka armed with a cardboard box, towels, newspaper, 


toys and kitchen towel...the little fat white puppy was no longer 


so very little and watching him play with his last little brother 


before we left was heartwarming. It was easy to see that Tracey 


was trying to put on a brave face as we bundled the tons of 


puppy food, toys, bits of bedding and paperwork into the car. 


She picked him up and gave him one last cuddle before 


handing him over, whispering in his ear and telling him to be 


good for his new mummy and daddy. There were tears as we 


drove out of the gate...the sign of someone who truly loves 


every single life that they bring in to this world....



At 8 weeks old Kiba was almost completely paper trained. He 


slept in a crate next to our bed and we have never heard a peep 


out of him. As long as he was with his humans, Kiba was happy.



Kiba is now almost two and a half. He is everything I could ever 


have wanted in a dog and so much more. He is my soul mate, 


the love of my life and a complete spoiled brat. It hasn't been 


without its trials, getting to this stage – Kiba has separation 


anxiety due to not being able to train him to be away from us as 


a young pup, which means his cannot be left on his own or 


with strangers. He also went through the 'teenage stage' of 


Inuit Deafness, running off to see every other dog that caught 


his fancy and expecting them to play with him. He is the most 


loving dog you could ever hope to meet, fantastic with 


children, other dogs and even my house rabbits when they 


were still with us. Kiba came to our wedding in 2010 and 


behaved impeccably; he is with me 24 hours a day and I 


wouldn't have it any other way.




Two and a half years on and I am now owned by three 


Honiahaka Northern Inuits. Each one brought up with the same 


unending love and attention as Kiba. All left Honiahaka with a 


big hug, whispered words and tears. Yoyo, our Koko and Bear 


baby was born in June 2011, after waiting almost two years, 


and in September 2011 we added little Teddy, a Moley and Spirit 


baby to our small pack, despite my Husband saying we could 


only have two, the Northern Inuit motto is “There's always 


room for one more!” and boy was this one extra-special litter!



I suppose I have to end by saying I think we have found not 


only the best breeder of Northern Inuits, and quite possibly of 


dogs in general, but some wonderful friends who are always 


there for us and our dogs. We love the pack walks and the 


Honiahaka Camping Weekends, that closeness that there is 


between Team Honiahaka and the rest of the Honiahaka Family. 


I am so glad that we found you and that you continue to hold 


on to your excellent breeding practices. That love and devotion 


that you just don't see very often. I would never have a 


Northern Inuit from anyone else...





Jamie


Wow thanks for that essay Lindsey that really helps. Sue and I 

have decided to get a NI which will be our first dog together! 

We have been looking on the internet at breeders and found 

Honiahaka a couple of weeks ago and the website was 

fantastic with loads of info and an endless amount of cute pics 

which made us sigh "ahhhhhhhhh" for hours! Honiahaka 

seems to be that bit special compared to the others for some 

reason and we knew if we were going to get a NI then this was 

the best place. We were so excited when we arranged to meet 

last Monday and we were made to feel very welcome like 

Lindsey was ( only we missed the cake ;-).. The experience was 

great and we got a chance to meet the pack and I a chance to 

see how my allergy would be. I was covered in hair from head 

to toe as some of them wanted to dance with me! But not a 

sneeze so its all good. We had all our questions answered by 

Tracey and look forward to meeting again.

I first heard about the Northern Inuit breed at a burger van of all 


places, but nevertheless I was getting some lunch and the 


owner was talking about a breed of dog that a friend of his had 


owned that was part wolf. This intrigued me so I asked him 


what the breed was called and so it was then i found out the 


Northern Inuit breed existed.


My next couple of hours were spent looking for pictures, which 


i found on the net and then that was it, home, internet and 


searching websites!! As many as i could find! Which is then 


when I came across the Honiahaka website and compared with 


some of the other sites i had seen it was packed full of 


information and pictures.


In not so many words at this point me and my fiancée were 


hooked and we hadn’t even seen a NI in real life yet. I sent 


Tracey an email asking if it would be possible to come and see 


her and the dogs and she was very happy to arrange a date, 


which couldn’t come soon enough for me may I add. So in 


January 2011 we all went to meet the Honiahaka pack.

As we got out of the car we could hear the dogs and it was 


strange to think that in minutes these pictures we had looked 


at would actually be real, sounds silly but trust me they get you 


that way, you will see what i mean.


Tracey and Andy welcomed us into their home like we had 


known them for ages and we met some of the girls inside the 


house, namely Moley and Kizzy and baby Ochi, my first instinct 


was how gentle they were with my kids my son at this point 


was 9 but my daughter was just coming up to 3 and this was 


obviously going to be a big consideration but there was no 


problems at all, we talked for ages about the good and the bad 


and nothing was kept in secret. We then proceeded to meet the 


rest of the pack and it was truly a fantastic experience one by 


one they came to have cuddles and all of the dogs were happy 


to greet us with licks and big waggy tails. The area in which the 


dogs were kept was spotless and in general everything was 


clean and the dogs all looked in great condition so at this point 


we were confident we had met the right breeder.



We have now been an honorary member of the Honiahaka pack 


and been to shows , camping weekends and met many other 


owners and Dogs whom I would be very happy to call new 


friends and at no point were we made to feel unwelcome infact 


the complete opposite and the one thing that u WILL get when 


have an NI is an extended family and in our case even 


without the dog. The support network within this group is 


fantastic and as a novice owner I know that when we do 


eventually get our puppy there will be no lack of help and 


support from both Tracey and all of the great people associated 


with her.



I am writing this from the aspect of someone who does not yet 


have a puppy although we are on the list, and we are now all 


bar the dog immersed in this great breed and all things that go 


with it. I hope you have enjoyed reading this and believe me 


when I say you will not meet a more devoted breeder than this 


one.


 Thank you


Sally Bryan


 We had been looking into this breed for a long time and had 


already made up our minds that it was a NI we wanted. We had 


visited another breeder and just didn't feel comfortable with 


them or their dogs so decided not to get one from there despite 


there being a gorgeous little boy ready to go that day ??


I trawled the internet and came across HONIAHAKA and once 

finish on the website we just knew that this was the place we 

had been searching for.

March 2009 I had made contact with Tracey and had arranged a 

visit for myself and my husband, Steve. We arrived at the gates 

and there was 8 big dogs all stood up on their back legs 

hanging onto the gate barking in excitement at us.......Steve 

shoved me forward and said "go on then, open the gate"!!!! 

Luckily, Tracey appeared and called then all back into their 

kennels so we could come in? She made us feel very welcome 

from the moment we met and we were introduced to the 

wonderful Honiahaka pack there and then, which was just 

amazing? We were greeted with lots of hugs and kisses from 

the doggies and Steve was honored - Squims didn't bark at 

him?

We were then welcomed into the house, after being disinfected 

on our feet and lower legs. We met Saskia who was pregnant 

and would be giving birth in the next two weeks, and then we 

met the wonderful Moley and her 9 gorgeous bundles of fur? 

She sat watching us closely and doing a head count every so 

often to make sure all 9 of her pups were still present and 

correct. 

We sat drinking tea and asking loads and loads of questions of 

poor Tracey? We felt like old friends and so relaxed that we 

were there, like Lindsey, for about 6 hours quizzing Tracey 

about her dogs and NI in general. Unfortunately, on this 

occasion Andy was working and Georgie was at school so we 

had Tracey all to ourselves and made the most of it?

Once our first visit was over, we knew that Honiahaka was the 

place that we would be adopting our NI from and we were on 

the list immediately. We waited, and waited for news if there 

was a pups left for us to adopt. Then we got the news that yes, 

there was one little boy left looking for his forever home, but 

that another couple had first pick so it was either going to be 

"cheeky chappie" or "garden boy"? (Garden boy was so named 

as he was the last pup born and appeared in the garden when 

his mum was allowed out to stretch her legs after her long 

exhausting labour) We sat for hours drooling over the website 

and at the pictures and little snipits of news of the puppies 

progress until the pups were about 4/5 weeks old, the other 

couple (Bernice and Richard) had chosen their 

pup...............Cheeky Chappie (Indy) would be going home with 

them so Garden Boy was ours ♥♥. 

We visited Honiahaka every fortnight right up until collection 

day and got to finally meet Andy and Georgie. We were made 

feel very welcome at every visit and they always had time for 

us and answered all our questions, even the silly ones?

We waited for an agonising three weeks to finally collect our 

huge puppy? Again, the tea was flowing and the cakes and 

treats were shared. We sat in the garden playing with the pups 

and chatting until we had to leave. There were special goodbye 

cuddles for Garden Boy and he was told to be a good boy and 

do Honiahaka proud. We were also give a huge puppy pack 

including toys, blankets and huge amounts of food and biscuit. 

There was also a toy that had Tracey and Andy's "smell" on 

and blanket with Moley's scent on plus a piece of vet bedding 

with the smell of the rest of the litter on so the settling in 

process would be a lot easier for Kenai (garden boy).


Once home, Kenai was such a good boy for a pup. He was 

virtually house trained from day one and didn't have any 

accidents at all. He slept through the night, but, unfortunately 

not in his crate. We tried for three nights to put him in it but he 

appeared to be claustrophobic and would jump up at the roof 

and try digging his way out. We were so worried he would harm 

himself so on the third night, after he had been howling all 

night and then, all of a sudden the howling just stopped......I 

raced downstairs to find him sitting at the bottom of the stair 

looking at me with his big puppy dog eyes and wagging his tail 

so much I thought it was going to fall off? I was so relieved that 

he wasn't hurt and then inspected the crate........he had 

managed to open the bottom catch and had escaped through 

the smallest gap ever. We decided from that night on he would 

not go in the crate again. He sleeps on his bed in the lounge as 

good as gold and we have never looked back.


When Kenai was Two months old, we decided that one was not 

enough and we contacted Tracey again and put our names 

down to adopt another Honiahaka pup!!!


On the 12th September 2009 Anya gave birth to four gorgeous 

puppies, 3 boys and our special little girl, Tala - "Garden Girl" 

(who was also born in the garden) so now we have a complete 

set, Garden Boy and Garden Girl.


Tala is also a very good girl but sometimes, when the two of 

them are together, alone, they plan things and can be quite 

destructive? They have eaten one of my leather chairs and 

have had numerous hair brushes, socks and shoes/trainers 

between them? I am home all day, every day, but still......I have 

to pop out to take my youngest son to nursery and am usually 

not gone more than about 30 mins???

The key is exercise, we take ours out for long walks over the 

forest every day and we do training with them indoors and in 

the garden. A training session is as good as a walk for draining 

energy and getting them to use their brains.



If you have any questions or concerns, Tracey is always there 

to answer them and to help you out in whatever way she knows 

how. She is more than a breeder, she really does care about her 

dogs and puppies and wants the best for them. It shows too in 

the pups. They are all lavished with so much love and attention 

that they are just the best puppies ever. They are usually 

housetrained, paper trained and lead trained all by the time 

they are 8 weeks old? That is amazing. I have had puppies 

before and I have never had a pup that was able to walk on lead 

and be house trained before?

She never turns you away? We visited Tala every week from 

her birth and Tracey was dealing with all sorts of chaos most of 

the time but we were never refused our visit. We always went 

armed with cream cakes and sweets as Tracey is so busy she 

forgets to look after herself? We wanted to treat her. She 

always shares the cream cakes but you will never see the 

Haribo!!!


From the moment we met the Fowler family we have been 

welcomed into their home, have enjoyed NI shows and even a 

puppy party for Kenai's litter and a pack walk for Tala's litter 

and friends. We now have a load of new friends and a very 

special extended family and an ever increasing Honiahaka 

pack. I thank my lucky stars that I found the Honiahaka website 

and made that initial contact with Tracey and her lovely family 

and gorgeous dogs and I thank her from the bottom of my 

heart for my two gorgeous Honiahaka puppies. ♥♥

Well I had to start tonight as I'll be too busy in the morning, this 

is my last night of doing what I want to do!! That's ok as I have 

had plenty of these nights. The kids are happy to do things for 

themselves or hang out with me & Terry while watching TV. 

Tomorrow night will be so much different than my last 3 years 

I'd say...I hadn't realised I needed another interest but when the 

kids grow up (only 10 & 6) they don't seem to be needing you 

to do things for them so you sit back and maybe for me get 

lazy. I mean I keep a good clean house, do all my duties and 

watch TV and play with the kids in the evening but I was 

needing something else I just hadn't realised it was a Northern 

Inuit. 

Never thought I'd have a dog but then again never knew this 

interesting breed either! It's like my babies due tomorrow! I 

have been nesting now for 6 weeks, that's how long really 

since I have definitely known I was to be owned by 'Chip' that's 

his pet name given to him by Tracey & Andy. He will always be 

know as lil' chip!! lol....I think it's a rather cute name but as I 

have had my chosen name of Lucian for 9 months it's only fair 

to keep it that way. Yep....we named a twinkle in our eye.....and 

we waited and waited and waited. I can say I have patience but 

with nature it is out of your hands. I missed out on a few 

maybes but deep down knowing they weren't my special 

puppy. I have sent my son Ben to bed at a really good time, it 

was easy as I told him that if he slept tomorrow would come 

round quicker and he would be off to school sooner and Lucian 

will be waiting for him. Sometimes and only sometimes it is ok 

to wish a day away. I'm normally up quite late every night on 

here or FB or watching a movie but tonight I feel very tired. I 

think my body is telling me to get some sleep....lol....the next 

few weeks will be broken sleep and too early 

mornings...lol....that's ok as it's an experience I want to go 

through, I am actually looking forward to every little thing that's 

going to happen from tomorrow onwards. I have heard all 

about the howling, the hair balls, the loss of your green lawn to 

all sorts and all I can say it....BRING IT ON......lmao......I'm finally 

to be owned by a Northern Inuit.
