  • Description


    We are Murray and Julie, a middle aged couple who have lived in Normandy for the past 14 years. We run a dog grooming business situated in a small town and live in a traditional colombage house in the countryside.
    We are 5 miles from the town of Lisieux where there is a railway station. We are about 1 hour from the landing beaches and 35 mins from the coastal towns of Deauville and Honfleur.
    We need some help at both our home and business. The work will include helping to look after our animals.

    Non-smokers only please

    Our house is about 8 kilometres from the nearest big town and there is no bus route so if you want to go shopping you will have to rely on us for a lift when we are available. Cycles are available.

    Please only apply if you really have a passion for dogs. We have 7 large breed dogs which live in the house with us as part of the family. We also have 2 cats and several chickens so you need to be comfortable around animals and happy to help care for them

    We are not able to cater for vegans
