  • Description

    Description

    I am a single English lady living in rural France. I breed Golden Retrievers and have currently 8, plus a Kooikerhondje, that is a dog! I occasionally have puppies. I also have 3 cats. My neighbours have a Limousin beef farm. The landscape is very picturesque. I enjoy going to dog shows both in France and abroad and would require help to look after the dogs when I am away. There is a double bedroom available. Because it is so rural, it is very quiet.
    Desparate for help between 12th March and 13th April!!
    I look forward to meeting you.

    I have a vegetable garden that has a mind of its own. For the dogs, confidence is essential, experience with dogs is beneficial but not essential. I am able to help with the dogs a lot but it is best if you are confident and happy to deal with them without constant assistance. They are all very well behaved, but they need attention and further training to stop bad habits e.g. barking. Walking, grooming the dogs.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    The house was built around 1850 with thick granite walls. It has central heating and internet. There is a double bedroom and workaways would have the freedom of the place. I generally eat basic English meals but am open to new tastes. The cooking and cleaning of the house are shared duties.

    What else ...

    In Folles, about 3k away, there is a bar/restaurant and in La Souterraine 15k, there are shops, and 40 minutes is Limoges. I am happy to help those staying with me by dropping them to local towns or the train station for days off. I do not expect you to work everyday.
