    We Need 1 for sommer 2017. 1-2 mnds
    you have what it takes?

    We are a family of two People. It's me Joakim 37 years old, living with my 5 year old daughter Jessica and right now we hawe 17 sleddogs in rural Rendalen, a smal village about 270 km north of Oslo.
    tasks are dog grooming, feeding, and much training. we use atv autumn and sleigh in winter. in Nov, Dec, the training will be up to 10 hours a day 5 days a week. so no time for "holiday" here.

    We just moved here about an year ago and I have many planes to make this Place finally a home by preparing more Space for the dogs, rebuilding and clean out the barns on the property and makes this Place looking beautiful.

    With the car it's Close to the village but the area is still quite isolated. You can get here by Train from Oslo what Works out quite well. It takes about 3 hours to get to Hanestad from were I can pick you up. Then it's a 30 minutes drive to were we live, in a quiet Place, surrounded by Mountains in untouched nature. So if you want to experience real Norway, away from tourist attractions and be part of Our little Family this might be a Place for you.

    For the reason that I have a little daughter and it's hard for her to meet New People all few weeks, I would prefer stays for at least 8 weeks that zou really can get into Our live, routines and the work with the dogs of course.

    Also I can't host couples so please apply just if you are a single person.
