Debora recently broke her leg, and will be on crutches a while longer, :(, so the duties for the next few months will consist of dog care and kennel help, miscellaneous odd jobs and cleaning, and occasional house-sitting.

We (Debora and Nevin) live in a hillside home overlooking Anchorage, Alaska. We have a small unique sprint sled dog kennel - unique because our 11 dogs live in the city and are truly part of the family!
Debora is the trainer/racer and works from home most often. 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...

Help in the house
Experience Alaska and it's beauty first hand. Learn about sled dogs and the northern lifestyle. Explore wilderness adventures!
We are looking for an enthusiastic person, willing to help as needed. You would be mainly involved with the care of of our aging sprint sled dog team: cleaning, feeding, and training, but there are also general "projects" and household duties that we'd appreciate help with. There may be times when you would house-sit all or some of the dogs while one or both of us travel. We compete in dryland races in the fall (so runners and bikers are welcome) and snow events in the winter! We prefer folks that can stay for longer periods of time!
English, some German, even less French :)
Single room, "shared" bath, full access to the entire house (part of the family), WIFI. We also have a dry cabin in Willow, AK that we frequent. You can cook for yourself or join us for meals - your preference. Non smokers only please.
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.
