We are a family with 3 teenagers located nearby the beautiful Rondane Nationalpark in Folldal, Hedmark, Norway. We do have between 25-40 sleddogs, yearlings and puppies. Every year we take part in different long distance sleddog races as Femundløpet and Finnmarksløpet in Norway.

Dog mushing in a longdistance kennel: take care of the dogs, feeding and training sleddogs in summer- and wintertime. In summertime we do have to repair and fix everything in and around the kennel and the house.
It is mostly a physical work during the whole year as, training dogs, cleaning dog yards, feeding the dogs, walking with puppies, walk in the free running area with all the dogs, preparing for the races, showling snow.
It´s hard work and long days, but working with dogs and training sleddogs is amazing and we do have lots of fun. You will get to learn a lot about the work on a sleddog kennel. We are coming to train dogs in day - and nighttime
We are looking for persons that can stay here for a longer period of time. It needs time to learn all about dog and dogsledding.
