    I have my own breeding program and
    I compete in middle distanse races and race with a type of dogs called Scandinavian hound.
    This is Just hobby/lifestyle and I dont take tourists.
    These dogs are only meant for racing and not carry around heavy loads and People.
    Working and care for these dogs are 5 hours in total each day 5 days a week.
    But you have free time in between each Day.
    You are up from 8 ish in the morning serving them food (thick meatsoup) and picking up manour.
    Its important that the dogs are hydrated.
    Checking the bed of straw if it need to fill in more or change it.
    Look after the dogs wellbeing.
    Socalize the puppies if there is a litter of puppies.
    Then feeding time again in the afternoon and picking up manour.
