Hi there! My boyfriend and I are looking for help this upcoming summer, fall and winter for our sled dog kennel, located in the Nisbet Forest of Saskatchewan, Canada.
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
Here in Saskatchewan you will be able to experience our unique winter. As well you will learn about the sport of sled dog racing and possibly get the chance to enter in a race of your own!
We are looking for help with our sled dogs during the months of October till April. We have 60 sled dogs. This includes helping with harnessing, exercising, feeding and going to sled dog races with us during the winter. Our place is best suited for I ndividuals who are motivated, diligent, able to do the help independently, reliable, physically fit and able to lift atleast 70-80 lbs. During winter we spend most of the daylight hours outside with the dogs... feeding, racing, exercising etc. So some tolerance to cold is a plus as well knowledge in regards to driving snow mobiles and atvs.
We attend races in Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Alberta and possibly the North West Territories. Some weekends we will get you to attend the races with us and some we will get you to take care of some of the dogs and puppies while we are gone for the weekend! Ideally it would be great if you could stay 2-3 months, either September to November or January til March. Also in early October we are expecting our first child :)
If you would like to come during the summer months, June-August, we are also looking for help with picking our Saskatoon berries as well as planting the garden and maintaining it. As well help with feeding the dogs, scooping poop and exercising the dogs/puppies. Our summers here are 20 to 30 C
Unfortunately at this time we are unable to accommodate vegetarian/vegan dietary requirements.
You will be in staying in our home with your own bed room and bathroom
Time off can be spent going to the city located 30 minutes away, hiking on the limitless trails by the farm, riding horses, spending time with the dogs and puppies.
