Snocrest Siberians is a small showing/breeding kennel located in Eastern Pennsylvania, on the Philadelphia Main Line. Our mission is to help preserve our beloved breed, the Siberian Husky, and to breed healthy, happy and beautiful dogs as close to the AKC Siberian Husky standard as possible. Since 1988 we have been blessed to have this wonderful breed in our lives and hope to continue our love affair with the Siberian Husky for many years to come.
We have bred and owned Best in Show and Best in Specialty Show winners, as well as dogs that have achieved National Club recognition and Awards at the prestigious Westminster Kennel Club. Many of our puppies, dogs and veterans have had multiple Specialty wins. We have bred many Champions and Grand Champions and as well as titling our dogs in Obedience and Rally.
Another special area of interest for us has been Rescue. Our first three Siberians were rescue dogs, one of whom went on to compete and finish titles in Obedience and was nationally ranked as one of the top 5 Siberians. We helped to found Delaware Valley Siberian Husky Rescue and did the 501c3 filing that entitled the group to function as a not-for-profit organization.
The primary focus of our breeding program is to breed for soundness in health and temperament. Every dog in our breeding program receives an annual eye clearance by a Board Certified Canine Opthamologist. In addition, the dogs are cleared for hip dysplasia by the Orthopedic Foundation of America and must rate excellent or good to be a part of our breeding program.
Our dogs are first and foremost our family! They reside in the house and spend lots of time running, playing and hanging out in our yards. Puppies are whelped in a bedroom and raised with lots of attention and family involvement. Socializing puppies is a task that we take very seriously.
Snocrest Siberians is an AKC Breeder of Merit. We are proud members of the Siberian Husky Club of America and as CPAs, we head the Club’s Audit Committee. In addition, we are approved Mentors for our National Club, which allows us to help educate individuals interested in judging the Siberian Husky. `We are members and Officers of our local breed club, the Siberian Husky Club of Delaware Valley, as well as being members of the Penn Treaty Kennel Club. We are also members of the Eastern Stewards Club and participate in stewarding at local shows. We have judged Sweepstakes at Siberian Husky Specialties and matches. We strongly believe that it is very important to give back to this sport and to our wonderful breed, both of which has given us so much joy.
We have been fortunate to have had many wonderful mentors and friends as we have grown and matured in our knowledge of the Siberian. We will be forever grateful to all of them and hope to be able to carry on with the tradition of passing on what we have learned to the next generation of stewards of this wonderful breed!
