Do you love dogs, and would you like to learn more about mindfulness, animal welfare and at the same time be driving your own dog sled team in a unique environment? Then this is the tour for you! On this premium tour you will learn how we train the dogs with help of mindfulness and our full presence.
After a proper driving instruction, in which we also teach you how to best interact with our dogs, we head out over the frozen swamps and river and through mountain forest. Two people in a team take turns in driving and sitting on the sled. We find ourselves in a majestic environment with Sweden’s tallest mountain – Kebnekaise in the background. Every driver gets to drive about 45 minutes each. When we have reached the kennel and our home we have a warming soup around our kitchen table or around the fire in the wooden tipi which invites conversations about life in this Arctic environment.
Then we gather in our special mindfulness tipi where you will learn about the Trust Technique benefits. How do we use it and why do we use it? How will it be possible for you to use it with your own animals? During this tour you will help the dogs relax both psychological and physical tensions which is an important part of our daily work. You will also help teach the dogs to feel safe around strangers.
