The article focuses on the business, called Pesky Husky, that was formally launched in September 2007 by Mick and Debbie Pullen. It was Mick's son Ben who saw the commercial potential of the huskies. The family spent all this summer preparing a track in a field and training their pack of huskies. This had to take place in the evenings as the dogs cannot stand warm weather. The family describes the dogs as good natured, although they say many are caught out because huskies have the cutest pups in the world.
