Área: EnglandDoggie Training and general help required in small, friendly household, West Yorkshire. We are a family of four, I Monika, my partner Pete and our two doggies "babies" Alfie and Millie! We discovered workaway through my Son and his friend who spent a year touring the world volunteering with the workaway scheme having a fabulous time so ,after hearing their adventures we decided it would be ideal for us to sign up as hosts ourselves. We are easy going, relaxed, down to earth folk who like nothing more than to socialize with interesting people. We would like to open our doors to workawayers not just for help with our "babies" and in the home, but also to take part in a cultural exchange and to meet new people. We both work full time, on a shift basis, so we need volunteers who are motivated and who can work under their own initiative. Like most households there is not a lot to be done here, but there is always the daily activities of cleaning, dog walking and preparing evening meals, but we are receptive to new ideas and will try to adapt tasks to your individual skills.
