  • Description


    We are hobby breeders for afghan hounds since 1987. (VDH/ FCI) We have the leading afghan kennel worldwide with 155 induvidual champions and 15 worldwinner titels. We are looking for a dog loving kennelhelp volunteer with expiriences for more then 2 - 5 weeks who would help with the daily routine of the dogs, chickens and other animals. Letting out and feeding, walking..., when we have puppies we would like your help to rear them. We live with our dogs and our other animals in a small village in a lovely rural setting. Here are no Discos, Bars or any other kind of nightlive and action, but a lovely countryside. Experience with big dogs would be great advantage but we will teach you everything you need to know. The workaway person we are looking for should be able to take responsibility and have plenty of common sense. The position would suit a country loving person who enjoys the peace and tranquility of country life.
