Experience life in the kennels and help us train the dogs! During early winter we go out on sleds every day, getting the dogs fit for the long winter season to come. Now we offer the possibility to help us train the dogs for a week or longer!
During this week you will stay at our log cabin right next to the dog kennel. After a long day’s work and a good meal you can enjoy a sauna.
We will teach you the basics of driving dog teams and training dogs. We’ll go out on dogsleds every day, and we will eat lunch around the fire.
We use small teams, so as to train as many lead dogs as possible. We drive up to 20 km a day, depending on snow conditions.
We will be out on an overnight trip, where we will stay at a cabin. The goal is to train the dogs to sleep on a stake-out line and let them get used to the overnight routines again!
Next to the dog training we’ll spend time preparing for the winter season: getting the sleds ready, preparing trails, and many other chores that need to be done.
If you want to learn more about mushing and the training of sled dogs, this is your chance!
