  • Description


    Hi we are a small family, my wife, 2 kids and I live in the forest of Swedish Lapland. We have a passion for the outdoors and have sled dogs that require a lot of love and attention. The dogs require their kennels to be cleaned, to be fed and to be taken out on runs with the sleds and in the summer/autumn time with wagons. We perhaps need help with small and minor repairs, kids entertainment, perhaps picking the kids up from day care/school so we can focus on our dogs!

    We live in a beautiful area of lapland, close to a creek, and river and forest. the work with the dogs is amazing. We can teach you all about the dogs, the way they behave, run, even about their poop! and teach you how to train the dogs and take them out on runs iwth the wagons as well as with sleds when the snow has come.
