We are so proud of our dogs and love how much of a family they are to our family. Their litters have been amazing. We have a hard time saying goodbye, but love to know that they are going to become family with good people and help keep them and their loved one safe.

About Karelians

 

THE ORIGINAL HUNTER

The Karelian Bear Dog is an eager hunter and very independent, yet works cooperatively to mark game by barking. Their senses, especially smell, are sharp, thus the breed is suitable for big game hunting. They have a very good sense of direction; are balanced, courageous and persistent. This breed has a highly developed spirit for game and are very self-confident. They may be territorial towards other males, but are never aggressive towards people; though they may be slightly reserved. The bear dog has yet to achieve a significant reputation in the United States due to their rarity. A puppy will only be as good as its owner raises it. They are extremely smart and we encourage our new owners to find suitable brain toys that will preoccupy the dogs and further their intelligence while the owner is away or at work.

They are very loyal but independent, they love and require plenty of exercise to keep them stimulated physically and intellectually. Our increasing business has been coming from all walks of life but the majority from the likes of search and rescue, Department of Wildlife and outdoor enthusiast. Their agility to keep one safe is just one reason the Karelian Bear Dogs are becoming so popular. Our dogs have been DNA tested to ensure they are one of a kind, true Karelian Bear Dogs.

We spend lots of time raising, playing with and training our precious Karelians. They learn social interaction from a very early age. Raised along with our own children they are truly part of our family. Their natural instincts to protect against danger develops rapidly as they encounter varied wildlife on a daily basis. They may start chasing rabbits, but soon they leave behind the small game and set their attention on real threats like bears and mountain lions

The Karelian Bear Dog puppy is cute, lovable and very friendly to humans. They love plenty of attention and need plenty of exercise to maintain their physical prowess. As they develop over the first year, they change from a cute little pup to a powerful young hunter and a fence to would be predators.

BEAR HERDERS

Like a sheepdog, the Karelian has natural herding instincts. However, instead of herding sheep, they herd bears. They herd bears right out of your territory and entirely out of your way. Bears generally want to be left alone and hate being harassed which is exactly what a Karelian does, harrasses them and pushes them away from their human friends.

BEARS & KARELIANS

"Karelian bear dogs are natural and fearless hunters, bred and specially trained to haze bears and other large wildlife by running them out of areas where they’re not welcome."
