Husky Guide School

Many people are captivated by the lifestyle of sleddogs guides and want to experience it for themselves. Others simply want to maximise their chance to interact with these unique dogs whilst visiting the Arctic. Still others are genuinely interested in spending part of their lives with sleddogs.

Whether it is curiosity or adventure or lifestyle that drives you, you are more than welcome to join us - whether that be for 1 day or 1 year.

All of our shorter intensive 'insight' training courses (under a week in length) are open to anyone. Participants on these stay in comfortable accommodation and come in to join the guides during the working day.

Longer-term packages involve a complex application process since we want to be sure that you are really aware of the realities of life in the Arctic and that you don't have a wholly romantic view of the work before we accept you since, if accepted, you will truly function as part of our team and will live in the guide house alongside our guides, so we need to make sure that it will be a good fit, both ways.
