    Hi! I am called Frasse my wife Marie.

    Before you red more go down to this part "HELP" to save time for you and me.

    We have 2 boys 15 and 18 years, they both understand English. I have 32 adult Siberian husky's and 5 puppies.
    I'm working with the dogs full time during winter. The dogs are my family, They all have insurance and they all are my pets and are very socialized.
    I live in a small village called Orsa in Sweden. The dogs are very friendly, loves to cuddle, and we live in a fantastic area of hiking, fishing all year round, mountains, untouchable places, silence and just so good for our soul to live here. You need to like the nature to fully like it here over a longer time.

    In December if we have snow enough I start drive tourists. Or when we have enough to start safely. At that time i can offer sallary.

    If you can stay for a longer time that's better, because it takes time to learn and to be fluent in this. :) It is also important for the dogs so they can feel good and calm with you.
    Also when you have a pack of dogs, especially this polar dogs, its very needed to know that you need to be physically strong to be able to handle them, and a pack is quite different to take care of than pet dogs . These can be really hard-headed sometimes, so you really do need to be firm consequent and know how to meet a dog. They will try you out ;)
    The breed I have is Siberian Husky. If u are interested, you can start with reading online about my breed

    Skills I do appreciate is especially that u see what to do, both with dogs and in the household (such as cleaning, washing, fix the dish out and in of dish machine, keep our common area in order and so on), fill up with wood in the boiler for hot water, Also u need to be physically strong, this is special important in wintertime when we load heavy sleds, taking 2 dogs at a time to the trailer or into the dog team and the dogs are really STRONG that time of year. If you are good to cook its very appreciated ;)
    Also I appreciate if you are experienced and not come direct from parents home, so u can see what to do, and got the skills to do it . :) Not under 22 at least. Like if you are a little older.
    Its very good if you can take initiative , see what to do, and so on. If you like to walk, its very appreciated if you want to take some dogs for a walk. Because we will have young dogs thats need to be trained unique, before they get older.

    We live really close to each other here, you will become as family. :)
    All meals are togheter with us.
    Good if you also can give me feedback :)

    Hope to meet u!
    If you smoke, you actually need to find another place than me sorry to say.

    I can teach you all about the dogs, training them, building a dog-team, reading dog language. You also have a very appreciated area around here with plenty of very unique places to visit and experience (you're allowed to borrow my car when possible if you have license). This is an old area with very beautiful old forest. A lot of interesting living-history around here even if you're not so interested of it in common. We also have a very unique nature around, with very nice fishing spots, wide mountains, river with canoeing, and a big wilderness just around the corner.
