HONIAHAKA NORTHERN INUITS

Home of the Northern Inuit Dog, Wolfalike Dog
         and American Wolfdogs in the UK   

Having both been raised 

with Animals they have 

been a big 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 more 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 by a friend of ours called Utonagan 

bred by Sulin . 

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 a 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 from Mahlek 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 more 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 since 

2006 after a recommendation from our dog training school, 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 a 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 breed society and 

breeder 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 animal health trust UK (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 the genetic markers have been found. You can read about 

the finding by following this link to one of our pages.  Click Here


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. Click here


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 and the dogs are so inbred  

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, the committee have put on some great shows and 

monthly events. 


2017  also saw our 3rd and final American wolfdog Lola puppy join our pack.


2018 was the beginning of the International Wolfalike companion 

register, where people are invited to register their wolfalike breeds to 

help build a database, share the use of fully health tested stud dogs 

and be able to give out authentic pedigree certificates for their puppies.


2019 was an exciting one for us, the Wolfies on tour photo 

experience was a huge sell out in the summer, and another is 

planned for 2020.

In the autumn we traveled to the USA where we spent 10 days with 

some of our American puppy owners, we all rented houses and 

went on hikes in the mountains and paddle boarded in lake Tahoe, 

such an amazing time spent with our American Honiahaka family.


2020  had lots planned with wolfy days here and another wolfies on 

tour photo experience, but sadly the Covid-19 pandemic has taken 

its toll and we have decided to write off 2020, enjoy the break and 

concentrate on 2021 instead 


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

Once this pandemic is over our arms will be welcoming and the kettle will be back on and 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 dabbled 

in scootering, Agility, parkour and Rally 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.


We recommend raw feeding, this book is great our dogs are raw fed. 

We had some fun with our girls at the sledging weekend. 


Our first ever big win with the dogs.
