  • Description


    Dear Workawayers,
    we are Kusi and Mélanie, a Swiss-German couple living in France with our 17 dogs, 4 Alpacas, 6 cats and hens. Our horse lives near us in a herd and he is a 3,5 years old gelding.
    We are teaching dog owners in dog language and how they can become a leader for their dog. The This place is a very secluded little paradise where we are living in a dog pack and we learn daily from our dogs.
    Our Alpacas are helping us to calm the dogs down and occasionally they will have foals. With the wool I spin or make blankets.
    We do have trust in destiny!

    You don't have to be animal freak - we are also interested in carpenters, cleaners, permaculture and/or handcraft people and a lot of other qualities :-)

    At the moment we mainly need craftsmen like farmers, carpenters, gardeners or similar.

    You need to have your personal health insurance and be physically quite fit.

    Please note that it's not allowed to smoke in the guest rooms.

    In our "little paradise" you will learn a lot about animal language and how they like to live. You will sea the influence from human energies in animals behavior and you will learn how to become a leader in animals life. You also could learn to spin wool and some things about Peru, Alpacas, Shamans and Indians.
    We also like cooking and baking and exchange recipes!
