We are involved with Siberians due to our love of the breed and the enjoyment they bring to our family. Our family has been involved with Siberians since 1980. We have also bred Siberians under the kennel name of Joanta.   At Highlander, we treat each of our Siberians as a unique member of the family and participate in many activities with our Siberians. Our primary interests are in sledding and showing in conformation.   We are extensively involved with the Siberian Husky Club of Greater Detroit Anne has served in a multitude of capacities from President to Show Chairman.  Brian has served as President, Director, and Show Chairman. Anne is also a member of the parent club, the Siberian Husky Club of America.

Our goal in breeding is to produce quality puppies with excellent temperaments that are sound and conform to the AKC standard for the breed. Our Siberians have a happy, confident, and loving personality, avoiding shyness, aggressiveness or hyperactivity. A sound Siberian is a healthy, athletic dog, free of inherited defects such as hip dysplasia, eye abnormalities, epilepsy and one who possesses good conformation. What is good conformation? Conformation is a measure of how the physical characteristics and personality of the dog compare to the AKC standard for the breed. The AKC standard defines various attributes which make the Siberian able to perform it’s original function as a medium-sized, working dog capable of pulling a sled with a light load over long distances in arctic conditions.

It requires an extensive knowledge about the history and function of the breed to achieve these breeding goals  . Gaining this knowledge requires a willingness to read, listen and to observe. We have a personal desire to increase our understanding of the breed and collect Siberian books, articles, magazines and pedigrees. We involve ourselves in the sport of dogs and know many long time breeders from whom we seek advice. Our breedings are planned, with careful consideration of the genetic phenotypes of both sire and dam. Both sire and dam have been certified free of hip dysplasia and eye abnormalities by the OFA (Orthopedic Foundation of America) and CERF (Canine Eye Foundation of America).

Each year a large number of dogs are destroyed in animal shelters. As a breeder we are responsible for breeding only the best dogs available. We raise our puppies in an environment which properly socializes them to avoid personality and behavior problems which often lead to unwanted pets. Our puppies are whelped and raised in our home.  It is also our responsibility to assist new pet owners in the raising of their pups for the life of their dog. We take a lot of care and consideration to match the personality of each puppy to his/her owner.

We want you to be an informed, responsible buyer and pet owner. It is our responsibility to do everything in our power to produce quality Siberian Huskies and place these puppies in quality homes where they will remain as loving family members and not destroyed in a shelter. We will be glad to provide you with honest answers to any questions you have and to help you decide if owning a dog is right for you and if the Siberian Husky is the right breed for you.
