  • Description


    My name is Carinne. I. Was born in Belgium, Antwerp. Bud I live in the north of Spain. Cataluña. 5 min from the sea.
    I am a breeder of standaard poodles. And a judge of grooming competitions. So therefore I need to travel a lot. So I need somebody to stay home when I am not there and take care of my house and the dogs. Feeding them and brushing them and be there with them. I have four adult standaard poodles, one young one and one chihuahua....sometimes I do have puppies.
    When there are puppies then of course there is more work to do. Like cleaning pipis and caca's. Cleaning every day with the Kärcher . Grooming puppies.
    Bud also play with theme and training them.
    What I want from you is to help in the household, cooking a few days in the week. And helping with brushing my dogs, washing my dogs and whatever is necessary. These we will do more then once in the week.
    These will take like in between 3 ore 4 hours a day.
    I also do commercial grooming. So sometimes I will need you're help here too. Most washing and drying dogs. If you are open to learn about dog grooming I am willing to teach you.
    If I need to go to shows ore seminaries then I will need to ask you to stay 1 ore two days with the rest of the dogs while I am away. For compensation you can have a few days extra free.
    ....if you want to learn another language,.,I speak 5
    English, Dutch, Spanish, French and German
    Your one hour away by train from Barcelona, half an hour from Girona.
    There are a million things to see here, certainly if you have a car...
    I also don't mind it to have a male person to come to my place, because there is always some maintenance ore painting to do in the house ore the garden
