We are a small, specialised road transport business run from a family home by Sarah (47, female-German), Dan (58,male-Irish/British) and their 11 Spanish rescue dogs and one cat. We live in a private cortijo closeby Tabernas and it's fantastic desert landscape with Mini Hollywood closeby, walking distance to the village with public transport, bicycles are also available.
The village of Tabernas offers a weekly market, plenty of bars to explore, supermarkets and a communal pool. Sorry, ours is not ready yet ;-) But maybe you can help us with the pool too ...
The beaches of Almeria are ca 30 minutes away.
We offer friendly and private (single room) accommodation for two Work-Away persons, couples only with an age of 30 years plus.
Please let us know your skill set and/or qualification.
You must love dogs because they would love you too ... either you like it or not :-)
Non smoking persons only as we found it difficult smokers to follow our rules. We are happy to welcome you for a short time trial of 3 weeks minimum but actually we are looking for long term to benefit the needs of our dogs and cat especially when we are on the road.

Help around the house
In our house you learn lots about laughs and fun, first and foremost. This means all conversations in a mixture of English, German and Spanish. Also, you will be living in a business environment.
This means we are working via telephone and email for our international customers. Therefore, we offer insight into the reality of small business working in a large European transport world.
We can offer, for animal lovers, direct experience of living with and helping with live animals, like dogs and cats in all the ways they need.
We seek two (couple or friends) enthusiastic persons to visit, enjoy some Spanish lifestyle, but most of all to give us a hand in our house reformation.
Let’s start with morning cuddles for the dogs, breakfast and some work according to your skills.
Sometimes we would like to leave you in charge of our beloved pets when we have to leave the house.
It is not needed to be on duty for set hours, more it is to engaging our life style, to join in with the challenge we face, and to enjoy the experience.
Life here can be chaotic but always rewarding ;-)
Accommodation is a double sized bed room. Please be aware we have 11 dogs and they are living with us in the house and in our 6000 sqm garden. You will need to be a dog lover.
