    Description

    Hi, I have sleddogs and working as guide in Norway. I usually need some help for taking care of puppies and old dogs who need some extra attention, take off snow, cleaning the house and prepare food for guests. In summer it's time to fix dogshouses, dogyard and pickup berries, mushrooms and time to fish.
    Most of our guests are speaking french or english it is a good opportunity to learn !

    Because of Covid reasons, I accept only people who are already in Norway

    It's a very nice place to discover the winter in Norway. You will learn a lot about dogs and sledding and races. Learn how a big pack of dogs interact between them and all the communication between dogs. Most of them are rescued and need very special attention.
    Our guests speak usually french or English and we talk Norwegian at home, so you are welcome if you want to learn one of this language!
