  • Beschreibung


    We are Melissa and Maurice, 34 and 37 years old, 9 years ago we moved to Sweden from the Netherlands, We live on a small farm in the middle of the beautiful hills and lakes of Värmland with 22 sled dogs (mostly Greenland dogs) , chickens, and a cat. Our dogs are for hobby and competition (no Tourist work).

    During the winter season we can use help with our dogs, taking care of the dogs feeding cleaning kennels, joining on training. We do not let anyone train our dogs by themselves but you can help us during training and join us.
    It can also be possible that we will be out on competition but wont be able to bring all of the dogs with us and need help to take care of them while we are gone.

    If you apply for winter season we would like to to be with us for at least mid january untill mid march.

    There won't be extreme amounts pf work during winter so we are more open to a single workawayer but are open for couples to apply

    During summer season we need people that help with building projects, painting and gardening.

    We have space and work for 2 people during the summer

    both seasons can also involve some house work depending on how much other work there is.

    During Winter time you might want to go on a dog sled tour with us or rent a snow scooter for a day or maybe go skiing.
