    I returned to the UK in November 2020 after 14 years of living abroad and brought my 8 rescue dogs back with me (now down to 6), that range from a terrier type to an old large loveable lump. Some need decent amount of exercise, some are happy with a quick outside break every so often and slonking on the sofa. Or just chilling in the sun in the garden. One needs to be kept separate from the others and the house is set up for this with baby gates and there are separate areas outside. Whilst it sounds a lot, its fairly easy and they are used to their routine and while maybe a bit barky, no real trouble.

    I also have one elderly chicken who mostly lives in one area of the barn and just needs feeding and a bit of cleaning out. She gives you the odd egg every now and then.

    I am still heavily involved with dog rescue in Bulgaria and Spain and part of organisations operating in both countries. I also need to travel for work every now and then.

    There is a secure acre and a half field and another smaller compound they can go in to run around so you do not need to walk the dogs, although welcome to take a couple of the easier ones out. There is also a secure dog barn with outside area if the weather is not great.

    A couple of the dogs are fairly nervous, one in particular and a couple are escape artists given half the chance so instructions need to be followed to the "T" and gates and doors kept shut as required at all times. But it is all set up with this in mind and the garden secure.

    All food and drink provided in return for helping wit building work and DIY and some dog sitting as needed. Plenty of time for going off exploring the Lakes.

    Your own car would be an advantage as I am about 10 miles from nearest town or I can just ensure you are stocked up well for when I am away. And my brother lives close by for any emergencies.

    Amazing views, walks right on the door step. Unbelievable sunsets and sunrises. Lots of doggy cuddles. The odd fresh egg every now and then.

    I want to build my chicken coop/run, need some steps making down into the dog barn and there are two kitchens being brought over from my mum's house which I want to re-assemble between my utility room and the barn.

    Happy to accommodate vegetarians but would prefer not vegan. I eat meat and will continue to do so but equally happy with mostly vegetarian meals. However, there will be meat in the fridge and freezer and my dogs eat a mostly raw diet of offal, meat and bones.

    Own bedroom (double bed or can put single in there as well) and own bathroom. Sorry its not possible to bring your own dog as my pack take careful management and some are very nervous and its not fair to bring an unknown dog into the household.

    Or park up a campervan or caravan with access to water, electric as needed and bathroom/wife

    Please let me know if you have specific skills, what jobs you could or would like to do, a bit about you, how long you would like to come for is not just cuddling dogs and dog care. This is needed as and when I go away but mostly I need building and carpentry work - kitchens fitted, steps building, cementing a base for greenhouse and compost bins, chicken coop building.....and if you are arty, there are several plastic barrels I want painting as planters.

    Have high speed fibre optic broadband although due to thick walls of house it does not always work brilliantly in all rooms and have extenders through out house. And your work must fit around dog care and work I want doing. Plus I work from home and have my office in one room. Would need to work in your room.
