This is reprinted from the Oct-Nov 1964 issue of Puget Sound Norwegian Elkhound News 

The pictured dog team owners are Eldon & Lydia Alt of Klamath Falls OR.  In the spring of 1964 Eldon began training his Elkhounds to pull a sled and started competing in Jan 1964.  Eldon & Lydia also enter their lead dog “King O’ Winema Falls” in weight pulling contests.  “King O’ Winema Falls” has pulled 809 pounds which is 14 times his weight!  Looks like there are plenty of fun things to do with your Elkhounds.

PSNEA was well represented at this years Rose City Classic Meet The Breeds event held in conjunction with the Rose City Classic All Breed Dog Show. Not pictured are Dennis Bell & LOKI.


A highlight for PSNEA at this years show was a seminar for judges looking to add Norwegian Elkhounds to their credentials taught by Patricia Trotter. PSNEA supported Ms Trotter by providing some of the dogs she used in the seminar and we were invited to attend the lecture. It was a special treat to listen to a long time championship breeder and judge teach how to properly evaluate Elkhounds.
