  • Description


    Hi, we need you at Finnskogen in Norway.
    We have 19 hunting dogs, and service dogs. We have 5 horses, Icelandic horse, Norwegian horse and 2 Full blood Arabs. Our Arabian mare is waiting for baby now in March, so we're really excited about that. We are also expecting puppies in March, ... so there will be a lot of baby care for both dog and horse ...Now we need help with dogs and horses, setting up new stables, and new summer fences in the spring. And walk the dogs on beautiful Finnskogen. If you are also riding - interested then there are many opportunities for wonderfully fine riding tours. Our wonderfully fine Arabian stallion also needs more trening. He is already named and is a champion, but we want to educate him more, so if you have the time to help us with horses you are also welcome to us.
    There will also be a little common housework, and on warm summer days we bathe a lot in the pool to enjoy ourselves around the grill in the evenings. Every day there is the feeding of dogs and horses, as well as a parrot ... to clean dog farms and in stables to take care of the animals in the best way. We are very happy in our animals, to train only positive training. We have our own training ground for dogs on the farm, and 1 day a week in a hall with heat in. If you love to ski there is also an opportunity now in winter.
    Bring your bathing suit / pants as we also use Jakuzien a lot both winter and spring and summer time.
    Don't wait but contact us as soon as possible. We live 28 kilometer from Elverum .
