Husky cuddling experiences are available in NZ and who could resist these fluffy pups?

Snuggle up with 14 Siberian Huskies.

We've found out there’s a Kiwi husky cuddles experience right here in NZ, and the cuteness overload is taking over!

On a farm land in Taupo there's 14 Siberian Huskies, and they've been made available for cuddles.  Steve and Taniya Coxhead run Timberline Huskies, the ultimate husky enthusiasts with over 25 years of sled dog experience under their belts.

I'm not the biggest dog person but who could resist these fluff balls, right?!

But Timberline Kennels is not just your average puppy play centre – oh no, I’ve looked into it, and there's a whole load of stuff going on! 

The huskies get harnessed up and hooked to a quad bike, ready for a ride. But hold your horses, ahem, I mean dogs – you won't be riding yourself, which is a bit of a bummer - as for the cuddles, they come later!

Siberian Huskies are natural-born runners, and you can see their passion for racing written all over their furry faces. But fear not, Steve and Taniya say the health and happiness of the pups are a top priority. The races are limited to a few circuits to ensure they don't overheat. 

Seems way more animal friendly compared to those seal and otter cafés overseas, so props for that!

After the racing, it’s a puppy cuddlefest.

As you enter the puppy kennel, the adorable husky pups with sapphire eyes tumble over each other in a race to cuddle and play.

Warning: extreme cuteness overload may cause heart-melting moments!

We have fluffy Fridays here at the The Breeze offices, and whenever the doggies come for a cuddle I'm instantly feeling better. And while the boss' dog is cute, he's no match for these huskies - don't tell him I said that!

So, this could be a go-to for the next family outing, or if you just want a bit of a puppy cuddle yourself.
