  • Help


    As a volunteer you would be responsible for feeding the dogs twice a day, and keeping the dogyard nice and tidy. We have around 50 dogs. We are looking for dog/animal lovers who take part in socialization of the puppies and keeping the dogs happy by taking them out hiking/biking/running/driving/walking.
    We also hope you can help us with general maintenance like painting sleds, mending doghouses and preparing dog equipment for the winter season.
    You would live in a small cabin with water, wifi, and electricity near the familyhome. Our family consisting of two parentes, two boys and a girl.

    Dogmushing is not for everyone. You dont need experience from handling dogs if you are willing to learn. It is important that you like being outdoor. You will also work alone, so we prefer that you are confident being by yourselves.

    It takes some time for the dogs to know you, and you to know the dogs. Because of that, its important for us that you are willing to stay at least 2 months.

    A driving license is preferable.
    We hope you can stay at least two months. The dogs will have to get to know you, and you have to get to know them.
