About us

Arctic Kees Keeshonden

We would like to welcome you to our website

Arctic Kees Keeshonden is located in Mo I Rana, about 100 kilometers south of the Arctic Circle.


We have been owned by this wonderful breed for 21 years. It has been some incredible years, lots of joy and happiness. We bought our first Keeshond in 1998, showed males for some years, before we bought a girl and decided to start breeding. We imported two dogs from New Zealand to Norway, one girl and one boy and in 2007 we bred our first litter. We decided to breed in a small scale, so so far only 8 Keeshond litters have been born in our home, a total of 33 puppies.

We prefer to have it like that, quality over quantity.

It's really important to us to give our puppies the best start they can get in life. They are born in our bedroom where they live the first 4 weeks of their lives, before they move to our livingroom where they get exposed to different sounds, the other dogs in the family and visitors. All our dogs are health tested before beeing bred to. We find that very important! They are all highly rewarded, and have since the start been among the top dogs in our country.

All our dogs live with us in the house, they are equal members of our family and they are loved here with us forever.


Of the 33 puppies we have bred; 25 have been to shows, some more than others - but here is what they have achieved:

18 of them are National Champions and 10 of them have got their International Champion title! They have taken 231 CACs, 153 CACIBs and they have taken 116 champion- & winner titles worldwide! Do we need to say how proud we are of them?

We would like to thank all of you for caring so well for your babies and for giving them the best life possible!


We hope that you like our website and that you find what you are looking for. If you have any questions or if you would like to be owned by an Arctic Kees puppy, please feel free to send us an email or to give us a call. We travel to shows in Norway and also to other Scandinavian countries during the year, so you might see us in a show near by you sometime.
