    As a volunteer you would be responsible for feeding the dogs twice a day, and keeping the dogyard nice and tidy. We have 54 dogs now, and soon we are expecting puppies. 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


    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.
