Dog Lover’s Dream Job?
Denali seeks a kennel manager.
A day at the office? Maybe.

Thirty-one dogs and all the sledding in Alaska’s pristine backcountry that you can handle—plus, a $33,477 to $66,542 salary  and a 25 percent cost of living adjustment: Sound like the career for you? Through November 24, Denali National Park and Preserve is accepting applications for this park ranger position. But be warned, this job is not for the Saturday dog walker and maybe not even for the competitive musher. Former kennel manager Karen Fortier told the Anchorage Daily News, while there’s plenty of beauty and mushing in the work, expect loads of paperwork and management responsibilities.
