We are running a farm close to the beautiful forest of Steinwald, Bavaria, Germany. We breed and train German Shepherds professionally. Dogs are sold to both private persons and state and non-state organizations such as the police and security firms. There are around 30 dogs in all ages at the farm, as well as a varying number of puppies.

Workawayers will get a chance to get an insight into dog breeding and training at a highly professional level. We frequently have both regional, national and international visitors, which creates an international environment, even though the farm is located in a rural area. Our closest neighbor is a huge forest (Steinwald), which gives great opportunities for hikes and time in nature.
2 days off on agreement (normally 2 days off per week, but may vary due to for example visits, projects...).
This host offers accommodation and payment.
The help required is mostly general maintenance as well as caring for the dogs (walking, cleaning, feeding). Training the dogs and assistance in ongoing building projects may be considered. Instructions and guidance will be given in that case.
Prior experience is not required, but you need to be comfortable with working with dogs.
You will get a single room in the next-door house, where we accomodate guests and workawayers. Bathroom and kitchen are shared. Food will be provided by the hosts. You can use our car.
The main attraction in the region is the nature. Steinwald is a nature park of about 250 sqkm. The closest towns are Weiden and Bayreuth. The Czech border is also close, and day trips to e.g. Prague are recommended.
