Breeder name: Stuart and Suzanne Alexander
Location: Scotland and Sweden
Stuart and Suzanne Alexander from Scotland breed and work with Siberian Huskies. They are the ultimate working dogs that just love to run. As sled dogs they are built for endurance and can consume up to 10,000 calories per day.
In Scotland, Stuart and Suzanne run their Siberians in harness all year round as well as taking them on working trips abroad. In recent years, they have taken them to Sweden for three months where the colder weather and snow underfoot mean they are able to run for much longer distances.
“Diet is incredibly important for our dogs” said Suzanne. “They need high-energy feeds that contain both high quality protein and fat.”
High quality protein is essential to build, maintain and renew muscle, with fat providing the primary source of energy. Their experience tells them that the right balance of these two ingredients is really important.
“Over the years we have tried a few different brands” said Suzanne “we’ve encountered a few different problems, from inconsistency between batches to weight loss in our dogs. Not to mention poor customer service!”
