Thanks for stopping by. We hope that you are able to utilize our website and gain more knowledge about the wonderful breed that we love so much. Many people come to us looking for a companion and that’s great, but Siberians are not for everyone. Please make an informed decision when it comes to adding a Siberian to your home. We are more than happy to help you and are available to answer any questions about the breed that you may have.
We’ve been working extremely hard to give our dogs a nice facility that we can be proud of. In August 2016 we got just that! There’s still a ton of work to do and it seems like it never ends but we made a huge leap with our kennel remodel. All of our Siberians still have access to our 2.5 acre field that has a garden where they like to eat corn and a pond that they can swim in to cool off in the summer. Talking about some happy campers! These guys love to snooze on the cool concrete.
We are Matthew and Kelsey Little. I have always had a passion for animals but Matthew had that passion forced onto him when he married in to the dogs. Lol! He said he never thought he could love dogs so much until he met me. Siberians can definitely have that effect on people.
We spend a lot of time with our Siberians. In fact, we can never go on vacation because of the constant care and attention that they need. But, we love it and wouldn’t have it any other way. We enjoy showing our Siberians and it has given us a new sport to compete in. Both of us were high school athletes so this is an adventure for us – with the “ball” having a mind of its own!
My own journey with the Siberian husky breed started when I became a hobby breeder right out of high school. I had never owned a Siberian before and I fell completely in love with everything that they are. I spent every dime of my graduation money to purchase enough lumber and fence to build a kennel..and that’s how it started.
I never knew the world of show dogs, anyone that showed or even health tested. Throughout the years, I have gained knowledge and grown in what I am doing. I realize now not only the importance of health testing but also the importance of following the standard set out by the breed’s parent club – the Siberian Husky Club of America. You can learn more about this on our “Standard” page.
As I said earlier, Matthew and I are very active with our Siberians, from playing at the park to going on runs and attending dock diving fun events. But, with the help from a mentor, I have learned that showing our Siberians is a great way to improve on what we are doing. In the ring I can see things that I can’t see anywhere else. Things that help me determine whether or not a particular Siberian is of quality. We’ve had a great time showing so far. Our first show in which we took three of our Siberians ended up being a very successful weekend. Since we started showing in 2015, we have championed two dogs in UKC and won a Reserve BIS in a baby puppy class which had eighteen puppies competing.
Competing in the ring has helped us make the decision to spay or neuter some of our previous Siberians and place them in pet homes. They are no longer the quality that we want. We intend to not only continue having fun with our Siberians but also to strive for excellence. Thank you to all the friends who have become a part of Freedom Siberians. I hope you will continue to support me – and now Matthew as well 🙂 – as we work to grow and learn about this wonderful breed we have given our hearts to. We are going to work to always be improving and I hope to never let my mentor down.
