Our Story

We began in late 2018 when a group of friends walked their huskies at Haysden Country Park in Tonbridge, Kent.

 

Word quickly spread that a group of people walk their huskies in the park, and this soon got the attention of the local council.

 

Soon after the Council Leisure Services Officer invited the Admins of the group to join the Haysden Country Park committee to represent our interests.

 

In early 2019 Tonbridge Husky & Malamute Walking Group was established.

 

Due to the popularity of the group from outside of the Tonbridge district the council granted special permission for the group to utilise the park around the Leigh barrier for walking the breed. This began as a fortnightly gathering and the dogs had so much fun and many friendships were formed.

Towards the end of 2019 the council were coming under increased pressure from the local dog owners in the area that there were just too many huskies in the park which forced the council to put an end to the group gatherings.

 

The BIG Barn in Hailsham, East Sussex came to our rescue and the group relocated and increased in popularity from owners of the breed in the area.

​Not forgetting our roots, in mid 2020 we added a second venue to the calendar being invited by the owner of Fox Platt Farm near Redhill, Surrey where the group enjoyed further success.

 

Due to the overwhelming response both venues could no longer accommodate the size of the group events and again we had the task of finding new homes just before the Pandemic hit.

 

In 2021 we formed a Partnership deal with The Siberian Husky Welfare Association (SHWA-UK) to invite fosterers and adopters to join us to facilitate the continued rehabilitation and social interaction of their rescue dogs and we were invited to a new home at Carewell Canines in Lingfield, Surrey.

Again after almost a year, due to the popularity of the group we were forced to search for a new home and unfortunately the group went on hiatus for a year.

In September 2022 we have been invited to a new home at Harpers Farm in Goudhurst and we are very much looking forward to reopening our doors again from mid October 2022.

Our core values have remained the same since we began in 2018 to provide the facilities for the breed to run free in complete safety with as many amenities available for the dogs as possible and for them to enjoy their time together.
