We live in a beautiful lush area of New Zealand, Waikato, close to a quaint town of Cambridge. We live on a lifestyle block in the country and have a Maltese dog stud and sheep. We are a family of 3 my husband, myself and our disabled daughter who is 22yrs old. We have 10 little Maltese dogs and they all live in the house with us! Lake Karapiro is very close byfor water sports.

As we are in the country we would lend you a car at times so you can explore the area. We are close to the thermal area of Rotorua which is a unique cultural experience (1hr drive away) have contacts for you to stay in Auckland, Christchurch and visit a house in the Coromandel on the beach. Also Hobbiton and the Waitomo glow worm caves are within easy driving distance. This area is a popular tourist destination. Most people love it. September is Spring time here.
I am going overseas to the UK for 3 weeks in September and I need somone to help out while I am away before and after I come back. Idealy start mid August so I can show you what to do. Most of the work would entail looking after the dogs, feeding, walking and playing with them. Taking care of puppies and the big one is grooming as Mlatese hair grows all the time. I also show my dogs accasionally and will have 1 dog in a show coat that will need to be cared for each day. We will also be lambing so help there may be required. Some meal preperation would be appreciated.
I can speak French
