    I HAVE SPACE FOR ONE PERSON FROM LATE AUGUST/EARLY SEPTEMBER TO DESEMBER AND JANUAR TO APRIL. DO YOU WANT TO STAY THE HOLE SEASON AUGUST TO APRIL - LET ME KNOW

    Living with dogs the hole year means a lot of work in many areas. Each season has its own tasks. In the summer, the dogs are loose every day in a large dog yard so they can run and play. I focus a lot with social activities and the dogs love to run and play. Most of the dogs live outside the hole year in a big dog yard. In the summer there is some maintenance, painting doghouses, fences and more, carpentry and preparing for winter. Bringing in firewood and cutting firewood may also be relevant. And every day we also taking care of the dogs, picking up poo and doing some washing and rinsing in the kennel. the work tasks are varied.
    Daily walks with some of the dogs. There are many areas to discover.

    It is important that you love dogs and are interested in learning about dogs and dog sledding (winter) and is a responsible person. You must love to be outdoor and love to be with dogs. It is important that you are independent and enjoy your own and the dogs' company. That you can take the initiative to do a job where needed.

    For shorter periods you can also be alone with the dogs but only after training has been done.
    In the winter, the focus is on training the dogs. In the autumn, we train with an ATV and switch to a sled when there is enough snow.
