Anita was introduced to sled dog sport in 2017 by her friend Roderick Glastra. Together they have a pack of Siberian Huskies, which they also train together. Their lives revolve around the dogs. During the sled dog season, they therefore have little time for other things than working, training, sleeping and taking care of the dogs. Fortunately, their friends fully understand this and after the season they make up for lost time with friends. Although also out of season the dogs will always come first! Outside the sled dog season they always breed a litter of which 1 or 2 puppies are always kept. They always place the other puppies in sports. It is very nice to see your own puppies in the snow again and how they develop into fanatical sled dogs.
