    We both work full time jobs and would love to have you experience Alaska with the sled dogs, be part of our family, teaching our son about another culture, we need positive attitude and willing to jump in.
    We are a multicultural family and travelled ourselves when younger. We speak several languages and lived in several different continents! We want you to learn about sleddog dogs and take the experience back with you to promote our sport. You will be learning about feeding, cleaning, socializing and training canine athletes And of course be part of our family. We are only looking for guests who can stay for a longer period of time. You will be learning about 3-4 hours a day. We have had several interns who are our extended family now! Our current intern is from Argentina and our latest were from Germany, Scotland, Russia, France, Australia and Switzerland, we had the mostly wonderful experiences during their stays in last 4 years!
