    Hello You!

    We are searching somebody for the Winter Season! Actually we have free space from end of january 2018 till end of march 2018. We need somebody who could stay minimum 4 weeks.

    We are a small Sleddog-Farm in the Bavarian Forrest. We (Kilyan and Andrea) live here with our 12 Alaskan Malamute and our 3 American Paint Horses.

    Our farm is in the beautiful bavarian forrest. Nature is all around our property, so if you love to walk, hike, run, bike... it is the perfect place for you. We are most time outside and can show you the beauty of the landscape.

    The city Passau is about 45 km away. The bus stops some times a day about 500 meters away from our house.

    Our House is a Guest House. So this means, guests can stay here, learn about Sleddogs and horses and their training and all around this wonderfull creatures. So be sure, that ist is all right for you.

    Part of our work is also therapeutical riding for all kind of people and holistic riding.

  • Help


    We want you to have a genuine interest/passion for animals especially dogs and horses and outdoor life.
    You should be able to help independently/by yourself since we only have place for one “work-away” at a time. To help with animals is a physical and dirty tasks and so you should not be afraid of hard work or to become dirty. You also need to take responsibility and be reliable.

    We have tourists almost all year around and during off-season we try to serve all equipment, buildings, kennel etc. We always have projects going on.

    You will help 4-5 hours/day, but we also want to encourage you to experience the bavarian forrest for yourself. If you like to go hiking, biking or do something else for a few days that's okay with us.
