  • Description

    Description

    I am a dog breeder, with a small program. I have 12 dogs that live 1/2 in the house and 1/2 in an out building. There are daily tasks that require little skill but do take a couple hours. My house is located close to town but very private. I have a large pool and a hot tub. There are lakes and ocean all around me. Olympic area is very green and beautiful. Seattle is about 60 miles from me but the alternative route which involves a beautiful ferry ride is only 40 miles away. If you love nature this area is a must see with many trails and hiking opportunities for all levels of activity. I also have 2 kayaks and there are plenty opportunities to paddle around the many water ways. I have a beautiful modern trailer on my property for accommodation. I would like to have a work a way experience that is on a trial basis for about 2 weeks to month to see if we are a good fit. This could be renegotiated for a longer period. I am very big on communication between myself and workawayers. You are welcome to explore Washington on your free time but I advise my workawayers always let me know when they are leaving and text me when they are returning. do to the animals on the property.
    I am not open to people who smoke cigarettes. Pets also do not work here as it causes excess barking and disrupts the routine.
    Covid vaccination or negative test is required at this time.

    I have a newer 28 ft. travel trailer with a large slide out that provides extra room inside. There is a queen size bed and a living room area,T.V.,radio, as well as a kitchen and bathroom with a shower. My property is fenced and gated with a lock for security. The trailer is located inside the gated part of the property. I would ask the person what they like to eat and provide food for meals that they can prepare for themselves. The trailer is outfitted with dishes, bedding and everything needed to prepare meals, stove fridge,& microwave.
