About Viking Heaven
Who is Behind Viking Heaven?
Our home is nestled among the hills on the edge of a Ponderosa Pine forest just South of The Dalles, OR. The dogs have free run of two fenced acres surrounding our house.
Viking Heaven Kennels is owned by a mother - daughter duo, Sue and Jacqueline Vareberg. Our first Norrbottenspets joined our family in 2005 and by 2009 we were raising our first litter of energetic puppies. Both, Sue and Jacqueline, have been active in the breed since then.
We are active members of the American Norrbottenspets Association (ANA) which is the national breed club. Sue has served as an officer on the Board of Directors since it was formed in August of 2010. Jacqueline was nominated for the position of Vice President in 2012 and continues to hold the position.
About Viking Heaven Puppies
Our puppies are born and raised in our living room. From the moment they are
born we are interacting with them so that they get used to the sensation of
being in an active household. During the first two weeks, we carefully watch and examine the puppies to ensure that they are healthy and developing at a
consistent speed. After they get out of the critical first two weeks, we start
holding and playing with them. At this time their eyes are opening and they are
starting to become more active and aware of their surroundings.
All of our puppies will:
Viking Heaven raises one to two litters each year. From the time the puppies are born until they go to their new homes, we share weekly pictures and information about each puppy's personality. Once the puppies start becoming active, we also share videos of them playing and exploring their new world.
