The Great Alpine


The Great Alpine

Undoubtedly Australians have strong connection to working dogs. Owner of Howling Huskys, Jake Greaves, is one of those passionate men who got attached to the original working breed, the Siberian Husky. Jake became involved in dog sledding in 2008 starting as a competitive racer where he became very passionate about this unique breed.  As the years went on, Jake realised that he loved sharing this amazing sport with people and began doing wheeled tours in the high country of Victoria and casually ran tours in the snow at Dinner Plain. In 2010 he established Howling Husky Sled Dog Tours and moved his tours to Mt. Baw Baw Alpine Resort, expanding to include Mt. Hotham in 2015 and Dinner Plain Alpine Village in 2016.

Jake does extensive training with all dogs he encounters and loves to share his extensive knowledge of the breed. Howling Huskys pride themselves on the time and care given to their dogs. A unique attribute to Howling Huskys is once a dog becomes part of the pack it will live its' days out in the husky haven Jake has created for them. We do not rehome any of our retired dog or sell any of our puppies. In fact, these two groups of dogs work together as the retirees still love their job therefore help teach our young puppies or new rescues.
