    ACCEPTING WORKAWAYERS FOR 3 wks in december

    help with the feeding and care of our well-trained and well-socialized sled dogs. in the fall and winter that will also entail everything that goes into training the dogs (harnessing, helping prepare for runs).

    we also have chickens, so a love of fresh eggs is a must!

    the ideal candidate will be somewhat independent & must love dogs.
