Short Term Handler

It is looking like we have a great handler lined up for the winter this year however, he can't get over to Canada until October, so I was wondering if (like Helen did last year) anyone might be interested in helping us out for 6 weeks or so until Richard arrives??

The terms are as always - room, board and a small stipend in exchange for busting your butt out in the dog yard!

It's a great time of year to help out here, as we are busy and doing alot of training, but the temperatures are more agreeable and there are not as many yard chores (because we are still feeding only once a day and water buckets are still out on the houses). But don't get me wrong, you will still go to bed each night tired, beat up and dirty!

If anyone is interested in more information, please drop me an email at

If you have ever thought about going and handling for Karen now is the time to go. Karen is right about working hard and getting dirty and the going to bed exhausted part. What she forgets to mention is that you will be fed VERY well, you will have loads of laughs and you will have the opportunity for some wonderful solitude. If you are physically fit and love to work hard this will be the experience of a lifetime.
