    *️️️️️️*️️️️️️*️️️️️️Help needed to look after dogs and house for 4 months from 1 July*️️️️️️*️️️️️️*️️️️️️

    I'm looking for reliable and trustworthy volunteers to look after my dogs, house and garden while I recover from a major tendon reconstruction operation on my foot. The maximum short stay in Bulgaria is 90 days, so this may need to be 2 different volunteers to cover 4 months.

    The only responsibilities would be caring for my two dogs (aged 5 and 2), keeping the house clean and tidy, cutting the grass, and watering some of the plants in the garden. This would probably take around 15 hours per week. I won't be able to provide meals, but there would be some vegan store cupboard foods available.... rice, pasta, pulses etc.

    Volunteers must be dog lovers and be experienced in looking after dogs. The dogs don't have any health problems or special requirements.

    My house is in a good position in a popular village, with 2 shops and a bar. The nearest town, Chirpan, is around 7km away with a wide variety of shops, bars and restaurants, banks, supermarkets, and a fabulous weekly market. There are 3 buses daily into Chirpan, with an extra one of Fridays for the market. The house is basic but comfortable, with electric hob and oven, fridge freezer, washing machine, and hot shower. I don't have a television, but there is high speed internet. The garden has a nice view up into the hills. There are many tracks around the village that are great for walking the dogs, and they also have an enclosed area in the garden where they can run.

    What else ...

    The house is comfortable, but rustic and quite basic, so if you need a high level of creature comforts, then this is unlikely to suit. The toilet and shower are both in outbuildings separate from the main house, although the corridor to the shower room is under cover. I'd prefer non smokers, or at least someone prepared to only smoke outside.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    There are museums in many of the villages and the town. It will be a chance to live a quiet Bulgarian style life for a while - ideal for someone wanting a quiet place for work or retreat.
