    We are a Japanese couple living in Juso where is just 1 or 2 stops away from the Osaka station by train.
    We have 3 small rescued dogs they are pretty smart and easy to look after.

    Please write us whether you are good at cleaning.

    If you can stay for about 2 weeks will be fine though if we both feel comfortable then you can stay longer.
    We sometimes take workawayers to travel to different cities.
    If you like to travel around Osaka, you can join us. :)

    This is just a friendly reminder that you might have to share the room together with another workawayer for a day or two.
    It will depend on the schedule.

    We need someone who can do housework such as cleaning and laundry.
    Our dogs walk or run around 10km per day so you need a lot of physical strength (You can use a bicycle if you think it is too hard to walk). Usually, I take them for walking after work, wash them, dry them then I start cooking and cleaning. I finish all these within 3 to 4 hours but it will depend on how fast you do the work.
    So your job will be below...

    ● Laundry (dry and fold)
    ●Take care of our dogs (take them for a walk, wash and dry)
    ●Washing dishes
    ●Cleaning and put things in order

    We have three rescued dogs in total.
    Hanavi had heart disease. (she had surgery)
    Hotaru currently has asthma (so we keep our rooms clean and give them shower when they come back from outside, people have to wash their clothes everyday and have shower every night.).
    Matsuri sometime has an epileptic ​seizure. She loves to run, but when she has cramps it's good to hold her and wait for a while.
    The most important task is taking the dogs for a long walk and it will be the decisive factor in my decision to hire you.
