  • Description

    Description

    We are a Swedish couple of middle age (50-s), Olga and Leif, living in a village Svängsta (the south part of Sweden), 10-15 min to the Baltic Sea by car, 1 min to the forest and 5-10 min walk to the nearest lakes.
    We have a Peruvian naked dog and have rather quiet life in a house with a small garden.
    Leif has many different interests: painting, sculpturing, playing harmonica, building motorcycles etc.
    I (My namne is Olga) like gardening, walking with the dog and working at my handmade projects.
    The nearest AirPort is in Copenhagen. There is a train from the airport to the nearest city Karlshamn.
    Our biggest issue is the dog who can’t stay home alone. So we need help of a “dog-sitter” first of all. And it would be nice if you could help us with cooking and around the house and garden.

    Our guests can try and learn painting, making jewelry, knitting, felting... You will see the beauty of Swedish nature, you can go fishing salmon to the nearest lake or sea. If you want you can learn Swedish language too.
    We also have home gym where you can train and bicycle to cycle around and even to the nearest city.

    Help

    We need a person who can take care of our dog, while I am away and my husband is working. it would be nice to get help around the house (cleaning, cooking) and garden (for ex. cutting bushes) too.
    Our dog refuses to stay home alone and it would be nice if somebody can teach him not to be so upset staying alone. I think it is not necessary to mention that you should love dogs!

    The village we live in is surrounded with forest, lakes and river. The nature is just “behind the door”.
    To reach the nearest town Karlshamn from our village you can take a bus or bicycle. In the town you can take a train to the bigger cities Karlskrona and Kristianstadt, even Copenhagen.
