The founder of the kennel

The founder of kennel Thurisaz is Magdalena Donerstak who is also the member of the Estonian Kennel Union and the Estonian Alaskan Malamute Union. Support and help comes from her partner Hardi Riis who started the journey of mushing with our malamute Luise and is now actively taking part in mushing competition.

About myself
Taking part in dog shows, competing in mushing competitions, and everything connected to the kennel is my hobby. I work as a teacher. One part of my hobby is posting videos and pictures of our dogs to the Instagram platform.

We breed dogs that have been health tested and approved for breeding. The dog has to have the drive to work, but should also be a spectacular show dog. We aim to breed dogs that have great personality and are perfect for families. It should be easy to live with a dog, but it would be nice if the canine companion would also woo its family members to an active lifestyle. 

To achieve all that is mentioned above we choose the female and the male carefully. They have to be healthy and have to have achieved results in shows and/or mushing competitions.
