  • 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 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 to give me an idea of the times they will be leaving/returning.

    ****For the time being I am currently looking for outside work/maintenance. Painting, repairing my deck, gardening, power washing, weeding/watering, mowing etc. In your free time you are more then welcome to interact with the dogs by playing with them and or taking them for walks.****


    Depending if I am raising puppies or not the type of help I require would involve dog care (brushing, bathing and walking) as well as socializing puppies (handling and playing ) help with my house hold chores vacuuming, dusting, washing floors. Gardening would involve planting weeding and watering. I have a small garden plot. Also maintenance of dog pen areas such as cleaning and changing water pails, maybe removing straw bedding and replacing with fresh.

    Accommodation

    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.

    What else ...

    I have mentioned the opportunities for hiking, kayaking, strolls along the water, swimming(weather permitting) and taking in local history (museums and government buildings,) Olympia is only 15 miles away and is the capital city of Washington. The city itself is fascinating, with many sights and culture to enjoy.
