  • Description


    Having recently moved house my profile has now changed regarding the help I need
    Basically I can manage the dogs myself, but help in socialising them before they move on to a permanent home is always appreciated.
    What I am looking for is for somebody to help around the grounds, strimming the grass and hedge. We have professional tools to do this. Some light maintenance like fixing fencing and maybe a little painting, and occasionally help around the house, which is only small, so quite easy really.
    3-4 hours per day and 2 days off, either at weekend or during the week would be sufficient for our needs, and the hours can be flexible, also the weather determines the work we can do
    I also have a website that needs updating, so any help with that would be a bonus
    People travelling in a camper van, we can accommodate you also.
    We have a good internet connection, so people who need to work via the internet whilst on workaway can do so
    I have a small caravan available for workaways to sleep in, and unlimited access to the house.
    I have stated that 2 people can stay, but the caravan is small, although big enough for short term living
    I would like to add though that I prefer workaways to stay for at least 3 weeks to give time to adjust and settle in.
    I am extremely busy just now so please be patient if I don't reply the same day
    Thank you for reading my profile, and if the position appeals to you then please contact me for more information
    Kind regards

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    will fill this in later when I have more time, But I am willing to show what the surrounding areas have to offer
    However not all culture is good. I rescue galgos (similar to greyhounds) and Podencos. Both breeds are used by hunters. Please google them if you can before you come, it will give you an insight as to why I rescue these dogs and find them forever homes.

    Just general help really which will be dependent on your ability to do the tasks required.
    You will not be left on your own to do things unless you feel confident. Nobody is perfect but, we all have certain talents

    At this uncertain time I am not sure if transport services are running at 100% as things change from day to day. But there are opportunities to travel to local places of interest
