    Description

    We have a working kennel of 26 beautiful loving , hard working Siberian Huskies situated on 10 acres in a small rural community an hour west of Whitehorse in the Yukon. Our log home is on grid with full amenities, and our guests/helpers and handlers share our home with us. With summer quickly coming to an end it is time to get training dogs for the winter mushing season. I will be participating in a number of races with the dogs and really hope to go to Alaska for a 300 mile race in January. I an looking for one person or a couple who are keen to come for the whole winter to help with the dog care, and training/ running of dogs. Ideally it would be amazing to get someone with experience in working with dogs but if you are enthusiastic and willing to learn then we have a place for you!
