Help Wanted:

Summer Kennel Caretaker, May 1 through September 2021

*Start/End Dates Are Negotiable

This position is for a handler/kennel assistant to help with the summer care taking of our sled dog kennel.  We run a busy tour operation in the winter months, but the dogs still must be exercised and cared for in the summer.  This is a great chance to gain experience working with dogs for future employment as a musher at a sled dog kennel or for any future job with animals. This is an all-hands-on position; duties include feeding, watering, walking dogs, doing daily dog checks/veterinary care, and socializing dogs.

If you truly want to get away from the world...this is the place for you!!

You'll be working and living on site at our sled dog touring kennel which is home to approximately two hundred awesome sled dogs.  You'll be living and sharing meals with the rest of our summer staff (2-3 people total). We provide room and board and a $400 monthly stipend with the potential of additional pay.  Work hours will be 8-noon and 2-6 pm. You'll receive room and board and two days off per week.  You must be a positive person, have an excellent work ethic, be able to work independently and be comfortable living in a remote environment. 

It is not necessary to have a vehicle but it may be useful on days off.  There are plenty of areas to explore and if you have a mountain bike you are welcome to bring it as there are great riding trails surrounding the property.
