Information about the musher and breeder of the Siberians of Olenjok

Manuela with her first Siberian Husky Pioneer 1980

Manuela Walter was born 1966. Her infatuation for dogs was fed to her with mother’s milk. She grew up at home with a German Shepherd and two poodles, in her uncle Eddy Habegger’s kennel with a pack of Siberian Huskies. She experienced the raising of Siberian Huskies, as well as the development of the sport in the most direct way right from the beginnings (in Switzerland and Central Europe) and she is one of the pioneers in the sled dog sport. Her passion for the Siberians never diminished even with the opening and the critics. 1980 she was presented by her parents and Eddy with her first Husky “Tschuktschen’s Pioneer”. 1979/80 she drove her first race in the category C with three older and experienced dogs (Tschuktschen’s Huvakiaq and Kerry and Jara of Gydan) belonging to her uncle. 1982 she established her own kennel and 1985 she had her first litter. Manuela’s aim is to breed healthy and well performing Siberians. To achieve this goal she runs her dogs in Sprint and Mid Distance races, one of them the Alpen-Trail and also tests her dogs on trails in Scandinavia (performance on longer distances, resistance to cold, processing of food etc.).
