We are a family composed of me, my wife, our little daughter and our 8 dogs, 2 sheep and a donkey.
We have a Farmhouse and Dog Training Center with accomodation, we accomodate to tourists that are searching for a pet friendly farmhouse, and at the same time we also acccomodate to people that work with dogs.
We do professional dog training, agility dog training, obedience, retreiver dog training, dog education, dog's behavioral recoveries as well as other types of training.
Inside the Training Center there's also a private grove and a beautiful lake that we use for dog swimming.
We provide lunch and dinner and italian breakfast (Coffee, milk and toast).
We are not vegan/vegetarian and we all eat together as a family and eat home cooked traditional italian food.
The room is large with a private bathroom, so we prefer couple accounts or friends that could share a room. We prefer long term stays but enquire for short term stays that we might be able to fit between long term stays.
