We are Viljar & Renata, owners of Paasiku dogs manor. The manor is located 35 km from Tallinn, the capital of Estonia. At the moment we have 24 Siberian Huskies and 3 alpacas living with us. We have experience of breeding dogs for over 10 years. In 2013 when we moved to Paasiku manor, which had been empty for several years. We fell in love with this place and the location was perfect for dogs as well. Beside renovating the main buildings we have been paying more attention to involving tourism. At our place you can find activity during the whole year.
Babysitting / child care
We will show you Estonian culture, traditions and nature. Near to us are different beautiful places like really famous Viru bog and Jägala waterfall. Of course you will also learn everything related with sleddogs, their nature, how is to live with them and train them.
As we have activities during the whole year we need helpers from winter to summer season. The main task is taking care of the dogs (cleaning the yards, grooming the dogs, training them, helping with puppies if there are any litters during this time etc). We also need help with gardening, renovating the buildings and sometimes helping with the baby. Our days are not similar - sometimes we have a lot of work several days in a row from the morning to the evening. And sometimes we have less activities and more free time.
Previous experiences with dogs are not needed, we will teach you everything :)
Estonian, English, Finnish and a bit of German
You will have your own room in the main house and some personal use kitchen appliances if needed. The main kitchen, shower and living room are shared. We have a big house so there won´t be any problems with personal space.
