We are Steve and Taniya Coxhead and we have been involved with sled dogs for 25 years and have the largest Siberian Husky Race Kennel in New Zealand. Early 2016 we relocated to Taupo to establish TIMBERLINE - a purpose built facility for our dogs complete with a track for training. Our vision in creating Timberline Kennels was to establish a hands on experience and insight into the world of the Siberian Husky and their original purpose as a sled dog. We offer a unique setting where visitors have the opportunity to mingle with the dogs, learn about their characteristics, limitations and suitability as a pet. We discuss our philosophy on keeping a pack of huskies which includes care of the dogs and what it takes to train and run a sled team.
