Are you interested in learning about sled dogs and racing? Have you always wanted to see the Northern Lights? Would you like to be able to combine the two and travel as well?

Yellowknife is the best location in the world for viewing the aurora borealis. As nights grow longer, the green, red and mauve lights of aurora borealis, or northern lights, are absolutely brilliant as they dance across the sky.

We are looking for a volunteer to assist as a handler.

We have a 40 sled dog racing kennel not including puppies in the heart of Yellowknife.

Looking for an athletic, motivated person who loves working with dogs. The dogs are a mix of German short hair pointer and Alaskan husky and very energetic.

We provide room & board, outdoor clothing (if required), meals, laundry & internet.

Depending on ability and interest, there may be an opportunity to try sled dog racing.

You can help with feeding, caring (daily poop patrol) and training the sled dogs and puppies and maintaining trails in winter. It also involves travelling to other provinces and states for sled dog races.

Be prepared for cold weather (-20C, -30C), snow and northern lights and the greatest adventure of your life!
