The Siberian Husky is a beautiful and captivating breed. I have been capitivated by their beauty and spirit long before I owned my first one. From the very first time I stepped into the show ring, I was hooked and have been actively showing and breeding my own top winning AKC registered Siberian Huskies for well over 20 years. I am an active member of the Siberian Husky Club of America and the Siberian Husky Club of the Twin Cities, Inc. and abide by the code of ethics set forth by those clubs. As an AKC Breeder of Merit, my goal is to produce and show quality Siberian Huskies that conform to the AKC standard in health, temperament and structure; preserving and improving them as the true working dog that they are. This includes performing the proper health clearances (hips and eyes) to help ensure the future of the breed.
The purpose of this website is to showcase my dogs and their accomplishments. These are not only show dogs but much loved and valued members of my family. Showing them and participating in many dog-related activities is a hobby that I (and the dogs) love and enjoy. I do not support puppy mills, only responsible dog enthusiasts with the same set of standards as myself.
I invite you to make yourself at home and meet the Trepak gang. Enjoy your visit!

At the St. Croix Valley shows in Lake Elmo, MN Yuki is awarded his fourth Major under judge Christie Martinez. All this time I was thinking he had 11 points (see my update in May) going into this show which meant he needed one point to finish his Championship however after I reviewed his Point Progression on the AKC Website, he actually had 12 points (one of the Major wins he was awarded was a 4 point major, not a 3 point major) which means he is now an AKC Champion at the ripe old age of 13 months. What a fun ride.
At Last! After taking some time off for motherhood, Vesper finally picked up that last single point to finish her AKC Championship by going WB/BOW under judge Mrs. Fay Dorval Houpt. Way to go Vesper!
Seven shows in the month of May and Yuki (Trepak N'Sumac's Yuki San) now has 11 points including 3 back-to-back-to-back majors. In two of three shows in Jefferson Wisconsin, he was awarded WD and WD/BOW under judges Houston Clark and James Frederickson respectively. At the Indianhead Kennel club shows he is awarded back-to-back 3 point majors by going WD/BOW and Best of Breed followed by WD under judges Mrs. Ruth Zimmerman and Carl Liepman. On Saturday at the St. Peter shows he was awarded WD/BOW under Samoyed breeder judge Larry Makai. Yuki still doesn't have his own website page with pictures. Pretty soon he's going to start imitating Rodney Dangerfield by saying "I don't get no respect" - but I'm working on it!
A thrilling win at the Siberian Husky Club of the Twin Cities Ruby (40th) Specialty. GCH Trepak's Upside Down Under (Drake) is awarded Best In Specialty Show under breeder judge Delbert Thacker.
