  • Description


    My beautiful Australian Cattle Dogs and I live near the beach and river in Peppermint Grove, Perth which is arguably one of the most beautiful suburbs in Perth. We are a short walk to the river and sea. We are walking distance to shopping centre, bars, cafe strip, library, bus line and train line etc etc - google it! You will experience the Perth beach lifestyle. We are a very short train ride to Perth city. We are such a small suburb and adjoin Cottesloe.

    I would like someone to enjoy helping with mainly dog care and organic vegetable gardening as a second priority. There is some light cleaning. I have Australian Cattle Dogs. They need lots of stimulation. They enjoy games on our large block of land. They love to swim and play games in the pool. I am a very experienced organic vegetable gardener and I can teach. Above all my dogs are my everything and I want them to enjoy the best possible life. My dog's lives have been enriched with all the wonderful people who have stayed with us over the years and most recently Raul and Elissa whom they love very much.

    You would have your own self contained apartment at the back of my house which is modern, private, clean and air-conditioned with your own bathroom, lounge room, kitchenette, bedroom, etc and privacy. You will have internet access.

    Naturally the dog's best needs are met by experienced dog handlers. However, if you read up about training Australian Cattle Dogs also kown as blue heelers you can learn as well. They are extremely clever and will train you if you do not take command.

    Peppermint Grove is arguably one of the best locations in the world. It is not Peppermint Grove Beach. It is the adjoining suburb to Cottesloe and as such on the train line close to the city etc. The block is very large so you would enjoy privacy as well in your self contained apartment at the back of my house between the river and the sea.

    We look forward to hearing from experienced dog handlers or animal lovers to assist in raising these amazing animals.

    We loved having Raul and Elisa staying with us recently for 9 months. My dogs Lucy and Lily loved playing in the park and in the pool with Raul and Elisa. Lucy loved her Friday baths and brush time with Raul. Lucy and Elisa are very close. Lucy and Lilly are both very protective of Raul and Elisa and keep them very safe and secure. We have just been through Covid together and experienced a huge amount of kindness and support from each other. Elisa will stay on until January whilst Raul has to go to Birmingham to study which is very sad for all of us.
