Welcome to the home of Lunartico.
We are Emma and Shane, living in Bargoed, South Wales, and have been owned by this magnificent breed since 2010.
Emma studied Spanish and Portuguese at University of Wales, Swansea, and spent years living and studying in Barcelona, and after that travelling through Spain and South America, before graduating with Honors in 2005. Emma now has the wonderful job of maintaining the pack whilst Shane is at work!
Shane has grown up around all breeds of dogs, and has shown and worked them since childhood. Shane has been in the Army since 2002, serving overseas and working with military dogs whilst on operational tour. He also had a successful boxing career where, along with his 2 older brothers, won numerous Welsh ABA Titles. He has also successfully coached his Regimental Boxing Team within the British Army.
We love to show and work our dogs, and believe that a dog should be doing the job it was born to do, and ours sure do love to pull!!!!
We work our dogs lightly but regularly in a number of different areas which include backpacking, weight pulling, scooter work, bike-joring, and also running / fitness, and trips to the aqua-treadmill. We carry out these activities with our dogs mainly for fun, but also for the health and well being of our dogs. Check out our working page.
We also enjoy regular pack days out and camping trips in the Welsh Mountains.
We only show our dogs lightly at local opens and a few select championship shows per year where we are regularly placed. We are not rosette hunters, we show our dogs simply for fun - a day out and catch up with friends.
We are both members of the Alaskan Malamute Club of United Kimgdom (AMCUK) and the Alaskan Malamute Working Association (AMWA) and The Northern Samoyed Society. Emma is also a committee member with Blackwood Canine Society and Tredegar Canine Society, and a qualified Canine First Aider.
