  • Description


    I'm a nature guide with 29 polar dogs. Huskies. If you are a eperienced handler thats a huge plus! Please notice that you are in need of a car license

    I'm looking for workawayers to help me taking care of a big old log house and the competition dogs. The longer you can stay, the better for the dogs. One month applications won't be considered .
    I will offer you your own room and provide food and you will be part of my pack.

    There is the chance to go hiking and enjoy the nature. Abisko and Nikkaluokta areas are nearby.
    You have to be a dog person.

    If you want to apply, I'm looking for people who:
    - like and have experience with dogs
    - can see what is needed to be done (like vacuuming, starting/emptying the dishwasher, taking out the trash)
    - are in good physical health
    - are practical and can fix things
    - can make a decent meal
    - can communicate, have sense of humor and a good mood
    - are flexible
    - are hard working
    - are able to work on their own as well as in a team
    - have a car licence

    If you have the skills, you can also get go out with the dogs. However, this is not considered to be help, it's a bonus. Furthermore, you can't be allergic to dogs.

    Still want to come stay with my pack? Tell me about yourself and who knows, maybe our paths will cross.

  • Help


    I need someone good with dogs, can manage them and likes being outdoors.

    More about tasks:
    Cooking and cleaning are part of the tasks all year round.

    During winter time, you will have to defrost and cut meat to feed the competition dogs, help out with planning and preparing dinner, keep things in order.

    During spring/summer/autumn time, apart from taking care of the dogs, the help will mainly consist of: making/repairing/washing and painting doghouses, fencing, painting buildings, fixing/improving trails and repairing gear.
