About Green Dog Svalbard
Green Dog separates from other commercial dog kennels at Svalbard, since our dogs are a mix between the Greenland dog and husky – and also, since our family, consisting of 2 adults and 4 children – and our guides – are living at the kennel, year round. We put dog welfare above all, so it was a natural choice to live at the kennel, to be present with our 4 legged friends, at all times. When our dogs retire, we put great effort in finding new families for them and this has resulted in many happy relationships. You can read about some of our pensioners at the blog at www.greendog.no. We offer tours with our dogs year around - on dog sledges in winter and on carts or by foot, accompanied by a happy Green Dog, in summer. To give you the best experince, our sled tours are for maximum 8 guests and everybody gets the chance to steer the dog sled. All of our tours inludes coffee & bisquits and we offer a 50% discount for children up to 12 years. We look forward seeing you!

Very helpful guides ❤️and super energetic friendly dogs.❤️ Guides know their dogs very well, because they basically live at cabins next to dogyard. It was easy to see how much passion they have for dogs. We had so much fun. After dogsleding we met fluffy cuddly puppies!
