  • Beschreibung


    We are a couple in our late 20s living 20 min south of Brisbane, both working full time (receptionist and plumber). We recently got an adorable border collie x blue heeler puppy Panda who is about 5 months old now. He has to stay most of the day by himself in the backyard while me and my partner are working (Mon-Fri except Tue) so we are looking for someone to come stay with us and spend time with him - playing, going for walks, basic training and just giving him lots of love and attention :)

    We will also require house cleaning once a week and help with dishes, gardening, cooking and laundry 5-10 hours per week in total. We might need help with other things - if you have photography or website building skills (or any other cool skills) please let us know.

    I am also a horse riding instructor and own a beautiful Friesian gelding. I could teach you about horse handling/care and for experienced riders there is an opportunity to ride as well (My horse is still in training so not for beginners). I have done a few Workaway jobs myself in the past and would love to host someone now that I have the chance and need for it :)

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We are a multicultural couple - Finnish/Polish and Australian with Macedonian heritage and love meeting people from all around the world, sharing stories and local cuisine. I am a big animal and nature lover and also passionate about travelling, latin dancing, yoga and photography. My partner Chris likes going to the gym, playing games, hiking and dancing kizomba.

    I am also a horse riding instructor and own 2 horses so if our helper was interested in learning more about horses that could be organized. For experienced riders opportunity to ride my horses too (preferably you would have your own car to drive to the paddock which is 20 min away).

    We go for hiking trips to national parks and also to the beach almost every weekend and you would be welcome to come with us and explore some beautiful places that Queensland has to offer :)

  • Arbeit


    - Dog sitting our puppy on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays (4 hours each day between 8 am and 2 pm - you can take a 2 hour break in the middle). This will include one 20-30 min walk, playing in the yard for at least an hour in total and some basic obedience training and feeding. He needs to learn how to be by himself too so you could do your own thing for a few hours while he plays in the yard.
    - House cleaning once a week (ideally on Fridays during the day while the puppy is sleeping or he can be left in the playpen) - this usually takes 1.5 hours
    - Occasional help with laundry, dishes, gardening, cooking and other household chores (around 1-2 hours daily, will be integrated into puppy sitting days).
    - Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sundays will generally be free time for you (we might need occasional help with the puppy on the weekends)
