Meet the Dogs
Kobe - 4yr old German Shepherd
Loves running in the team and it’s a great outlet for his abundance of energy.
He would be the noisiest in the team.
Geronimo – one of the puppies all grown up
He is training to be our new leader alongside Frankie and is showing great promise.
Of the 3 puppies he is most like Timber in temperament – cool calm and collected.
Granite – second boy puppy now a dog
He is a lot bigger than Geronimo and his build is more like his grandfather Polar and grand uncles Sarg and Darkha.
His temperament is more like River – he is very vocal and lets you know he wants to go..NOW !.
Tor – River’s brother and uncle to the puppies
When our old pack leader Tane Mahuta passed away January 2020 Tor took up the mantle of pack leader.
He also has a voice and never fails to use it.
River – The mother of the puppies
She was the best mother to her babies but once they were big enough she let us know she was ready to run again.
Her stamina is incredible and her style of running is effortless.
Shawnee – the only girl puppy in the litter of 3
She is the voted the most likely to be smuggled off the property. All our guests absolutely love her.
She would be the most cuddly dog we have and just loves all the attention she gets during a tour.
Frankie – at 9 years old she is the oldest in the team
She has been running in lead since Timber passed away and she is passing her knowledge on to Geronimo.
Frankie has always been a very steady girl and nothing much phases her which is a great trait in in a lead dog.
Unforgettable experience. Nothing like it ! Super friendly team, very informative and interesting. Will definitely be back !!

Steve very helpfully picked me up from Taupo to bring me out and was a delightful host. It was just me on the afternoon tour so I had a very personalised

It was a great experience...just the right mix of interesting information about the dogs, cuddle time and exciting stories of racing with the dogs. So great
