  • Description


    Hello! We are a family of 64 living in the southern part of Estonia. There is me, Johanna(34) and Rain (38), our 5 kids (4mo, 3, 5, and 7 and 9 years olds) and our 57 sleddogs. We also have some chickens and cats.
    Our home is surrounded by a beautiful nature including lots of interesting trails, lakes and hills. There are 7 lakes very close to us. We also have the deepest lake and the highest point of Estonia both near to us.

    Me and Rain both have been wanting a big family and we're trying to do everything together with our 4 loveballs. So the person(s) who come(s) to us should be aware that the kids are most of the time around.

    The other part of the familia are the dogs. We have 3 types of sleddogs: alaskan malamutes, alaskan huskies and siberian huskies. In the training season and winter time the dogs take most of our time as we also offer sleddog tours for tourists. So we need help from head to toe i.e. From Cleaning the poop to taking the guests to a tour. Apart from all the work the dogs need you can get to know the wonderful spirit of sleddogs. You can work with true athlets and train the most craziest puppies on the most beautiful trails!

    About our place: We moved to the place we can finally call home some years ago. So pretty much everything is under construction. Before moving here there was nothing - it was just a field. So apart from the dogcare we need help in building, building and more building.

    Since settling in, getting to know the kids, dogs and the daily routines take time, we're interested in people to stay for a longer time (min of 2 months).

    The ones we are looking for are:
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ at least 25 years old
    * preferably A COUPLE
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ in a good physical and mental shape, independent to be able to work alone as well as ready to work with the guests and in a team. The work needs to be done with any kind of weather since the dogs need to be taken care of every day.
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ able to work outside with any weather and for many hours.
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ are caring and loving with the kids as well as the dogs
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ flexible since the work that needs to be done varies
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️able to drive a car legally
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️not vegeterians

    Previous experience with the dogs is not necessary. We will teach you and provide you all you need.

    If you feel that this is something for you, write us and let us know about yourself and why are you interested in joining our family. In case of any questions, please ask. To check if you have read it until the end if contacting us could you please write us the color of your eyes:)

    NB! This is not a fun enterntainment or a possible way to spend a holiday! The work can be hard both physically and mentally because daily routines require focusing and consentration, sometimes problem solving and the dogs are very strong so you need to be physically fit.

    NBNB! The days don't last 5h sharp. Sometimes we are together 10 or even 12 hours. But we chat and eat and take breaks and it is not all physical and work outside.
