Wayeh, under Billie Stewart's care, has a long tradition of success in obedience and conformation. Wayeh Needa Mist, TT, ROM, OB-ROM (whom the kennel is named after) started it all with 6 CH kids, 4 obedience-titled kids, and the first BIS Malamute male in Western Australia -- this in only 2 litters.
Liz Norris and Sidney Helen Sachs inherited the kennel from Billie. Her specific wishes were that we would take care of the old ones and continue the tradition of breeding for a working housedog -- a Malamute (or Siberian) who can do the job he was intended to do (in harness & on leash) and come home and pile on the couch with the family. All of our dogs have basic obedience, hiking, & dogsledding skills (see Working Dogs). They are temperament tested. Some of our dogs also do competitive obedience & conformation, as well as non-competitive pulling, packing & therapy. But our only requirement for our pets is that the dog is a good "pack" pet (gets along in a group), the rest is just fun. Our breed dogs must meet these high working standards as well as pass standard tests/ratings for hips, eyes, hypothyroidism, & dwarfism.
We are firm believers in the value of all dogs, regardless of titles., but having worked in rescue for many years, we will not be responsible for casually producing or carelessly placing puppies or adult dogs. Our goal is to produce working housedogs. According to The Alaskan Malamute, Yesterday and Today, Brooks and Wallis, great puppies are products of parents with: "Correct Structure, Good Pedigree, and Impeccable Temperament."
Our pet puppy homes must agree to spay/neuter, puppy obedience and basic obedience classes, monthly heartworm prevention, annual vet checks and vaccination updates, and hip and eye checks at 24 months. They must have a fenced yard. We look for homes that want puppies as lifelong family members. But we are always prepared to take back a Wayeh puppy at an point in his lifetime.
If you are going to be a novice in the show ring, start with quality dogs from a knowledgeable breeder -- the dogs will teach you more about proper movement and type than any 10 dogs of mediocre quality. The breeder will be a resource, support, and years of experience to draw from for the life of the dogs.
