We are a couple (~40 years) living in a village in the countryside of Pirkanmaa, Finland. We have one dog (Lapponian herder), a very lovable cat and also chickens in the summer. We have a traditional kind two story house with about 5000 m2 of property.
Our house is located in the countryside of southern Finland, surrounded by forests, lakes, fields and other houses. We try to live ecologically and we produce 90 % of our energy needs by solar powerplant in the summertime.
We have a rowing boat at your disposal on the lake nearby. It's about 15 minutes to the nearest small shopping centre by car, and about 30 minutes to the city of Tampere. There are daily bus connections to Tampere (~50 minutes to one direction) and you can lift a ride almost every morning from us. After the capital region, Tampere is the second biggest city in Finland with its 240 000 inhabitants.
The national parks of Seitseminen and Helvetinjärvi are located in a pretty short driving distance from us, as well as the Riuttaskorpi recreation forest (unfortunately no public transport to these). They all have lakes, places for campfires and marked hiking trails. There are also some horse riding stables nearby both for trail riding and taking riding lessons. In nearby forests it's possible to pick berries and mushrooms in the late summer and autumn. You can also borrow our bicycles: there are nice countryside cycling roads around.
We like peaceful and quiet country living, animals and nature. Our hobbies include photography, hiking, board games, outdoors, animals, reading, gardening and travelling. Riitta also rides horses and goes at the gym.
We hope you like animals and can take care of our pets. We hope you could take care of the tasks quite independently, as we can't be around during the day because of our work. Please also note that because of our tight schedule, be prepared to cook your food by yourself.

We always try our best to take you as a part of our everyday life here. We have hiking & camping gear which you may borrow. We are able to offer lifts for you.
Your main job would be to walk our dog while we are at work. He’s 2 years old and has got a lot of energy. He's pretty big, very active and sometimes wild, but kind and loving people. We hope that you are able to walk on all kinds of weather and manage with a big, young and active dog, who still for example sometimes jumps on people. We expect a minimum of one hour walk daily, preferably longer if possible or more walks.
Other possible tasks available are:
- taking care of the lawn (we also have a robotic lawnmover, so it's not a weekly task)
- washing and brushing the dog if necessary
- watering the plants
- picking berries
- playing and doing some activities with our dog
- taking care of the chickens
- cooking & baking occasionally if you like it
- vacuum cleaning & mopping the floors
- renovating the dining table surface
- making some simple stairs for our water facility building
- piling fire wood to the shed
- road maintenance work
- weeding of perennial flower beds
