Du Kennels were founded by us, Sheila & Glen Laughton in 1987.
We added our first Siberian to our Reno, Nevada home in
1985, and since then have devoted ourselves to breeding, training,
and raising outstanding AKC registered Siberian Husky puppies
for loving, responsible, pet and show homes. Our kennel name,
'Husker Du' means "Do You Remember", and just as the
name implies, we are dedicated to breeding and raising dogs that
will always be remembered.
We are members of the Siberian Husky Club of
America, SNDD (Sierra Nevada Dog Drivers), and ISDRA (International
Sled Dog Racing Association). The many years of dedication
and devotion as breeders, and owners gives us the knowledge and
experience to help us breed the best dogs that anybody could want
in terms of temperament, structure and standards for these beautiful
Our highly-selective breeding program produces puppies that are
true to the standard of the Siberian Husky in health, temperament
and structure, and we are always striving to improve the breed
with each litter that we produce. All of our
dogs live in the home with us, which over the years has been as
many as 17, right now we have 8 Siberian Huskies at Husker Du.
We have bred 25 breeder//owner handled and 7 bred and shown
by others and have competitively worked these
same dogs on mid-distance sled teams, taking First Place Purebred
at several races. Our GCH Huskerdu Rain, Wind 'N Fire finished
2010 #10 in the Country All Breed, always breeder/owner handled.
Our dogs are calm and easy to live with, temperament is a key
factor in our breeding program.
