    In the summer there is a lot of incidental work, carpentry, painting, cleaning in the dog yard, etc. The dogs live in a big dog yard and I have them loose every day so they can run and play.
    It is important that you like dogs and are interested in learning about dogs and dog sledding and is a responsible person.

    For shorter periods you are 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.
    You will learn a lot about dogs and dog sledding. The kennel is close to the trail that goes to the mountains in beautiful nature
    The stay includes board and lodging. In the cabin there is a small kitchen and all dry food you have in the cabin. Some days we eat dinner together, but due to my job you have to arrange this yourself a few days. Nice if you can also make dinner some days.
    It is important that you eat all kind of food.
    Flexible working hours, but about 5 hours a day and 5 days a week. Sometimes there will be work at weekends and a day off during the week.
