Hi Karen,
Koda just turned 13. He is still in very good condition. Starting to slow down a little. He is about 60 lbs in the summer and around 65 lbs thru the winter months. He is a great dog!

Hello, there!.I live in Ga. Looking for a male dog to be mine; the female rescue dog we currently have is totally attached to my husband and his son....I need MY DOG to love and play with in my retirement years, starting this Nov. However, I intend to take 2 months vacation in Europe May to July. Are there any " programmed " puppies in the works after I am back here?

Just an update...Meet Jake, he is adjusting well to his new home and loves his rides and exploring the property. He is very entertaining and makes us laugh every day. Thank you so much, he means everything to us

Hi Karen,
Koda just turned 11 and is doing great. He loves his walks and runs in the forest. The Vet says he is in very good condition. He is quite the talk in the neighborhood. Everybody wants to see the “Bear” dog.

Hi Karen ,
Can't believe it's been two years since I got Raven from you. He's doing great and is a great hiking and snow sport "partner, he loves the snow. Hes treed 3 bears on mtn bike rides, coyotes and a cougar. With all that it's still hard to believe how sweet he is , he's been a great fit.

Hello Karen
I just want to let you know that I have never dealt with nicer people who raise the quality of dogs that you do at Aspen Valley! I have gotten two dogs from you a male (Tuff) who goes everywhere with my granddaughter and is a great dog. I have the female (Kate) who is truely outstanding as I have never seen a Karelian in person or in a picture that looks as well or is any smarter than she is. She will swim with my Chessy's and fears nothing. I will send pictures soon. I hope you have a great summer and would recommend your dogs to anyone.
Talk to you soon
Weyman Henry

Holiday Greetings to You and Yours!
There have been many times I have you in my thoughts. Kira, b 10/27/2011, has grown into a wonderful dog & companion on my travels from CA to WA. Loves people and is a joy to have in the house, Knows where her bed is, when it's time, and even waits for me to ask her if she wants to go outside in the AM. I wouldn't trust her to leave a whole roasted chicken unattended on the counter though. Everywhere we go, Kira is lavished with compliments, she is a beautiful well put-together dog. We love her! "Critters" do not, however... We get out in the forest everyday, well we actually live in the middle of a forest and we are out in it every day, and I trust her let me know if there is "something" out there. Kira is a Rainee & Kody pup. I still remember your words. "Firm but Gentle" Kira is a great dog! Thank You!!

Greetings from our family in British Columbia. Our Katie came from your April 2006 litter (she was Brie from the B group.) She just turned 10 yrs. young. She has kept our family safe from bears and coyotes for all these yrs. What a beautiful, smart and loving girl. She is a natural bear "chaser" and won't quit until we're safe. She's slowing down now, but still runs 5+ miles daily on her mountain walks with my husband. Anyone living in the mountains should have a KBD to keep them company.
