We are both born in Prague, Czech Republic. In 2005 we moved to the tiny village of Vedjeön (population 5 (people) and 35+ (dogs)), 40km north west of Strömsund in Swedish Jämtland. Why? To follow our life long dream of living in the North with as much untouched nature, wilderness and with good, long winters, so we can breed, raise, train and race our siberian huskies in world's biggest long distance sled dog races.
Our passion for animals and dogs in particular, wildlife, nature and the simple way of life, has led us all the way here, to the banks of Vattudalen lake and foothills of Jämtland's stunning mountains. We not only instantly fell in love with the area, but we found it our home very soon.
We are proud and active members of World Wildlife Fund and have high interest in ecology and natural medicine.
What did we do before we started pursuing our dreams? We had a large distribution company that dealt mainly with healthy pet food, nutritional supplements and sled dog equipment.
Jachym is a computer specialist and graphic designer by profession, and Katerina studied on a Gymnasium in Prague as well as in Canada, where she graduated in 1993, specializing in art and journalism. Later on she studied marketing and even later, when she devoted her professional life to health and nutrition, she got education in holistic medicine with two degrees in Reiki Healing and one in Reflex Therapy.
When the timing came to move to Sweden, we adjusted the operation of our Czech company to size, manageable over distance. As a result of that, we built the first and only Czech holistic online shop "for animals and their humans" and we provide nutritional consulting.
