  • Description


    I live on a small but rural property in the wheatbelt. Have not been here that long and still trying to get it set up to suit my animals

    I breed and show miniature schnauzers as as hobby and have cats, chickens, sheep and horses and 2 bee hives. We have a vegi garden and are trying to establish tree lines.

    You would need to be able to speak some English and be physically fit and keen to work. I am looking for help with
    building kennels, horse yards weeding, planting, doggy sitting, general maintenance in return for accommodation

    As we eat anything and everything, unfortunately this means we do not cater for vegans and vegetarians
