    We live in the north, next to the mountains. You would be outside with the dogs during the day, in various locations, woods, mountains, icy lakes. It is an ideal place to experience wilderness, its littarly around the corner. But its also a small community and a touristresort with a skiingarea, grocerystore, small hotels and restaurants.

  • Help


    We need different help in autumn and during winter.

    It is moosehuntingseason and Håkan goes away for a month. Your job will be to take care of the dogs when Lotta is at work. You will be scooping poop, vacuum, wash up, prepare dogfood and care for the dogs. You need to be here at the latest 15th of August, so you get to know the dogs before Håkan leaves.

    We would like you to help out with our sleddogs during the winterseason. We need help with prepairing trails and training the dogs. We would like you to help in the daily care of the dogs such as grooming, scooping poop and equipment-fixing.
    Help in and around the house with daily choores as snowshoweling (sometimes it is the only thing we do, beacause it can snow a lot), vaccuming and washing up etc.
