    Description

    We (Debora and Nevin) live in a hillside home overlooking Anchorage, Alaska. We have a small unique sprint sled dog kennel - unique because our 10 dogs live in the city and are truly part of the family!

    Debora is the trainer/racer and works from home. She participates in both dryland events and snow events. Nevin is retired and "tinkers" in the shop or travels to visit family. We also have a dry cabin that we retreat to to train dogs, kayak, fish, or simply enjoy the quiet. Come explore Alaska and all it has to offer: hiking, fishing, biking, dog sledding, snowshoeing, skiing, etc...

    Sept/Oct Update: Dryland training and race season has begun! Would love help with training and organizing/ volunteering at events.

    We are welcoming an enthusiastic person, willing to help as needed. Differs between the summer and spring/fall/winter months. You would be involved with the care of of our small sprint sled dog team: cleaning, feeding, and training and helping out with household duties and general "projects". There may be times when you would house-sit all or some of the dogs while one or both of us travel. Debora competes in dryland races in the fall (so runners and bikers are welcome) and snow events in the winter! The schedule is flexible and we have had good luck with students in the past. We prefer folks that can stay for longer periods of time!

    Due to COVID we are requiring proof of vaccination.

    Our kennel is unique as it is located within Anchorage. You'll therefore have access to both the city but can be remote within minutes of our home. Anchorage is a very active community (both summer and winter). Hiking, biking, ski trails, downhill skiing are all within minutes from our home.
