Team

All the members working on our team at Laxforsens Sleddog

Elin Tano

One day an 11 year old girl knocked on Tommys and Susannes door. Her name was Elin and she asked if she could help out with their dogs. Tommy took her under his wings, and she was with him and learned about the sleddogs. She was taught everything, from picking up feces to giving the dogs food and also how to drive a dog team. In the beginning she drove after Tommy with a small dog team consisting of only two dogs. Today 8 years later she is an accomplished sleddog driver, and also a great guide.

Tommy Pettersson

Tommy was born with, and brought up by dogs. He came to Kiruna in 1978 and moved to Abisko a few years later. He has had sleddogs since then, first as a hobby, and then eventually he began to work with his dogs for other dog sledding companies. Since a few years he works in his and Susannes own company.

Susanne Ohlsson

Susanne grew up with dogs and is generally crazy about animals. She got her first dog in 1992 and the first Alaskan husky 1998. It was through that dog Susanne met Tommy. It is Susannes fault that the home is also inhabited by cats, chickens and ducks. She started a dog hotel in 2006 and together with Tommy they also started their company Laxforsen Sleddog.
