    If you like Thylejren and would like to come and live here, it is recommended that you start to get out here a lot, possibly live in a tent or with someone you know. If the trial period is open, you can only apply during winter at a community meeting - and an address here is never guaranteed

    Answer: Dogs are welcome and they are also welcome to run free. However, be aware that there are other dogs living here and there are many cats and chickens.
