  • Beschreibung


    My name is Reija, 2010 I moved from Germany to France and now I live in the Dordogne, 20 km south from Perigueux, on the countryside. I live here with dogs, cats and many wild animals. The house is very old and has a large garden. We are surrounded by nature, forest and range land.
    I work as dogtrainer, animal therapist.
    I love to work with the animals, in the garden and cooking.
    I always foster streetdogs from the shelter, so normaly there are about nine dogs.

    Of cause you can learn the french, english or german language.
    I can introduce you to my work with animals.
    The Dordogne offers a great amount of sightseeings from the stone age and middle age. Hiking ways are excellent here, and any other outdoor sport like mountainbike, horseriding or canoeing.
    Also the exchange of knowledge and experiences in outdoor living, cooking (in- and outdoor), gardening, hiking... etc.
    There is also a very large buddhistic community at the Dordogne.

  • Arbeit


    I need help with the garden. After two years without many care, it needs to be "regained".
    The old vegetable garden shall become a chickens home and the vegetable garden shall become a raised bed.
    And there is an old barn that shall become a shelter for dogs.
    In my project I foster traumatised and terrified street dogs from eastern europ and rehabilitate them, so they can be adopted one day.

    I had a BnB for 10 years, also offered dinner. I will offer a continantel breakfast, people can prepare their own lunch box and I will cook in the evening. I prefer vegetarian, but I can also cook vegan, or deal with any other intolreance, meat is not excluded.

    There will be nine dogs most of the time, that wake up by sunrise. This dogs are afraid of humans, but not aggrassive. But you shouldn´t be afraid of dogs or annoyed by barking dogs (and that can be annoying ;-) ) If you don´t have any experience with dogs but you want to learn more about them, no problem, you are welcome too.
    Most time of the day I spend with the animals and gardening. As we are very isolated, it is very calm. For shopping or anything else a car is necessary, or for the nearest places a bike is ok too. But the area is "undulating".
    My neighbours are french people.
    In summer are a lot of festivals and markets everywhere.
