  • Description


    We are a youg 34 and 39 swiss-irish couple living on a small farm with 6 Huskies and 4 Ponies. We own a physiotherapie for dogs and also provide canine-conditioning training for dogs.
    Our dogs sleep in the house, and they are aloud to sleep on the bed if they want...

    We are moving from Switzerland to Sweden on 01. May 2019.

    In May/June, we are looking for Workaways that would help us build our dogkennel and Horsepadock in Sweden. Near Skellefteå.

    So you should have Carpenter Skills

    I would consider us to be uncomplicated and good fun.
    Oh, but we really don't like cooking so you should be fine with easy dishes beeing served.

    We live a bit away from shops etc. and there is no public transport. So on your days off there is not much to do without transportation of a car.

    You can learn loads about sleddogs, about horses and about Dogtraining and Animal Anatomy if that interests you.
    You can learn how it is to live on a farm.

    If you are an Animal- and Naturelover you will be happy.
    Also we can teach swissgerman, german and english. You will see what it is like for a middleclass swiss family living in swedish Lapland.
