  • Description


    I am Tif, 30, psychiatric trainee and I live with Jed, 33, carpenter, our dog Aska and Piper the kitty, who we just adopted. We have a small house with a tiny garden. We'd like some help with our every days life with Aska. He is 10 months old, he needs to go for a walk 3 or 4 times a day and to see somedoby when we are at work. Going with him for a walk and teach him some rules is going to take you from 1 to 2 hours a day on week's days. We'd appreciate your participation to develop a vegetable garden.
    I already had some experiences aboard and I learned so much from those that I want to still experience it even if I am in France, travelling through people visiting us.

    We are close to the French Alps and it will be our pleasure to help workers to discover Grenoble surrounding.

    We'd like some help with Aska when we are at work. We'd like somebody to walk him around in the park and play with him, around noun from monday to friday. That can take you from 1 to 2 hours because he is still young and he has a lot to learn. Aska is a Husky mixed with a Malamute, that's why we are looking for somebody feeling comfortable with dogs and who is ready to learn instructions to teach him correctly how to follow orders. We also have a small vegetable garden that need to be watered when thhe wheather turns dry.

  • Accommodation


    Private bedroom with a double bed. Workawayers can use the house as if it was their own. We don't provide lunch as we won't be home but we'll do our best to share some dinner (and trying to cook french food). It would be nice to share some moments together like skiing, hiking or climbing...

    What else ...

    We can pick you up at Grenoble bus or train station. If you come from far you can take a plane to Lyon, then there is a direct bus from the airport to Grenoble. There is a tramway station 10 minutes far from home. The best to go around Grenoble is by bike, you can bring yours and rent one here.
