  • Description

    Description

    I am Corinna, who live now on Corfu, Greece. I have 8 rescued dogs, who are living with me in the house.
    I am helping stray dogs, abandoned dogs, some shelters and the local community, bringing the dogs food, medicine, providing sterilisation and trying to find them a lovely home.
    Currently in the Covid situation I can only take care for the 8 rescue dogs on my land.
    I am looking also for long time volonteers or house/dog sitters.

    You will be staying in a lovely countryside area, with the local quiet community, surrounded by nature. But in 5 minutes walk you are middle of Sidari town, where are so many restaurants, bars and different beaches. You can reach all by walk. If you want to go to Corfu Town, there is a bus.
    The best part: the dogs give so much love! They all have different personalities and stories, but all love to be with humans receiving lots of cuddles and love.

    Please, read these tasks before applying for this opportunity.

    First of all, you have to LOVE DOGS! You will be with all types of dogs on a daily basis, who need attention, love PATIENCE and care. You will get dirty, you will be licked and loved; Dogs are the priority in this Workaway.
    I live at the end of Sidari on Corfu Island in Greece, in a pleasant countryside area, surrounded by nature. It is a quiet area, not suitable for party lovers or a city-person.

    We give free breakfast but not more, because we do not earn money with our dog help project.
    But you have a own the kitchen in the house.

    These are the main tasks, but not limited to:

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️cook for the dogs and feed them
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️train them on the leash
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️walk the dogs in the morning
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️bath them when necessary
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️give them attention, love, cuddles
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️give the dogs medicine when necessary


    It depends how many volunteers we have (one, two or three), and if I am at the home or not during this period (sometimes I have to travel due my work) we can split up tasks and organise the weekly schedule.
    You will be working around 5h per day, 5 days a week, with 2 days off. Once we agree your presence, we will discuss the details. A checklist will be handed to you with the main tasks and daily routine.
