Sled dog practice. min. 5 days
Extraordinary experience for the unique minded who relish the chance to learn new skills.
You are welcome to join in our daily life and spend some time with the “Engholm Husky team”! There is always a lot happening on our farm. Sled dogs are in training, puppies are learning to socialize. You will take part in harnessing, dog driving, feeding, preparation and other dog musher activities. We are training the dogs on tour about 5 times a week. It gives new and interesting experiences for dog lovers. The guides spend time teaching those new to the sport. As all ‘repeaters’ who come back to "mush" the dogs verify; the dogs really do become your best friends! It's real "dog musher life". We have a lot of fun. It’s not 8 to 4 life but it’s a life stile. You will get good memories that will last for long time and hopefully make your dream come true.
