UPDATE JUNE 2016 -- We are booked with volunteers until late October 2016.

We have a lifestyle block property where we breed, raise and train Labrador Retrievers for families and also for community service work -- therapy dogs, service dogs, scent dogs and more. We are surrounded by huge family farms, sheep and cattle. On our own property (along with the labs) we raise sheep and have a small personal fruit orchard. We are currently finishing the restoration/remodeling of a 100 year old school house which will become a first-of-its-kind "Dog House" for our precious pups, showcasing a different approach to raising/breeding/training dogs. We would welcome help! Our work opportunities include playing/working with our dogs, volunteering alongside of our trained therapy dogs, helping with puppies & cleanup, helping with dog get-together events, gardening/lawn care/maintenance, and general cleaning/labor (extra hands) help with the "Dog House" project.

In late 2016 we will also be working on clearing out a small section of woods so that it is usable for an exploring area for the dogs as well as building/installing custom fencing and a dog playground.

Accommodation is in our self-contained Dog House. You will want to be a real dog lover to volunteer to help at Skylit Farm. Our life is 24/7 gone to the dogs!
