  • Description


    My name is Carinne. I. Was born in Belgium, Antwerp. Bud I live in the north of Spain. Cataluña. 15 min walk from the sea.
    I have standard poodles. I go to shows with some of my dogs and at grooming competitions. So therefore I need to travel sometimes. So then I am in need of somebody to stay home when I am not there and take care of my house and the dogs. Feeding them and brushing them and be there with them. I have five adult standaard poodles, and one chihuahua...

    .I have a litter now of 9 puppies. And around 15 of February other puppies will be born.

    What I want from you is help in the household, cooking sometimes.

    I also I would like you to help me with brushing my dogs, washing my dogs and whatever is necessary. These we will do more then once in the week. If you are open to learn about dog grooming I am willing to teach you.
    If I need to go to shows ore seminaries then I will need to ask you to stay 1 ore two days with the rest of the dogs while I am away. For compensation you can have a few days extra free.

    I would like to find people who can learn me how to work with cameras to make videos and fotos of the dogs and how to process them on internet.....these is a new world for me,....

    I am one hour away by train from Barcelona, half an hour from Girona.
    There are a million things to see here, certainly if you have a car...check out online,...Empuriabrava, Figueres, Rosas, Begur, ...
    I also don't mind to have somebody here who knows how to reapair things,...because there is always some maintenance ore painting to do in the house ore the garden,...and I am not good at that,...
