  • Description


    We are Johanna & Konstantin, a young couple up i Swedish Lapland. We have over 25 dogs, 2 cats and soon two goats, with the dogs we make sleddog tours during winter.

    To have time for everything we need help with the inside work, we offer nice activities during the time of and always the possibility to be with the dogs when there is time.

    What we need help with is preparing breakfast, daily cleaning inside and cleaning snow outside during winter.
    In return our volunteers will have a great time up north, being a part of our family which includes all animals.

  • Help


    We mostly need help with breakfast preparations, we are in this time feeding our animals, making fire to heat up the house and cleaning snow, so to come inside after the first morning work to a prepared breakfast would be perfect! We always feed the animals first.
    After that there is some daily cleaning of the house and later on some cleaning of snow on the yard when the winter have come.
