We live in Lumijoki ("Snowriver" in English) in Northern Finland, 30 kilometers southwest from Oulu with our 3 sons; Jani, Joonas, Veeti and our 9 Pharaoh Hounds & 3 Italian Greyhounds (we also have Pharaohs & Italian Greyhounds in co-ownership with our friends).

Pharaoh Hounds are my love and passion. I bred my Pharaoh Hound litter in 1992 and first Northgate's Pharaoh Hound litter (bred together with my husband Kari) was born in 2004.

We go to racing, lure coursing and shows with our dogs but first of all they are highly loved members of our family.

to meet our hounds have a look under "Our Hounds " from the drop down menu.
