    We are looking for someone who is interested in coming and spending a winter in Canada training, caring for and racing sled dogs. We also have cattle so help with them would be a part of the winter as well.
    We start our training in November, racing starts in January and goes until mid to end of March. We also have horses so if you are interested you may learn to ride horses as well.
