  • Description


    Hi, My family comprises of myself, Nicky, (lady Nicky), five rescue dogs, three rescue cats and some chickens.
    Just moved into a wonderful project with my best friend, we run an association for the protection of animals (25 dogs and 2 lovely old horses.
    We each have our own house and share the land..
    I’ve built a cattery for 12 cats and have dogs staying with me (maxi 3) when their owners go away. I am 56 British and came out to France in 1985 !!! I have worked in many lines of work, conferences and events in Monaco, film production, estate agent and now decided to "change my life" for the love and life of animals... I run my small cattery, kennels and help with the association and just love it,
    We all need some help with the animals, Property and garden.
    We are in the Gers
    Beautiful area

    If people wanted I could help people with their understanding of dogs and how they interact in a group. Me (Nicky) having lived in France for such a long time I could introduce people into the French way of life and living and pass on all I could about this beautiful area and places of interest to visit.
    Valerie (French) can help with your understanding of the health and well-being of dogs and how to run an association.
    With many different friends in the region with many different passions, I am sure if you had that extra special request we might be able to help you out.
