  • Description


    We are Ernest and Martina, 54 and 47 years old. We live on a farm in lower Austria. Our sons are 24, 22 and 12 years old. Animals on our farm: 5 Border Collies, 1 cat, sheep, 2 rabbits, chicken, mice :-) We love our animals but they are a lot of work, so we can need help around our farm and also in the household.
    We have racka sheep wich is a rare breed. And we love to train our Border Collies on these sheep. Training dogs is our passion. The Border Collies are also trained as search and rescue dogs so we are part of a search and rescue organisation. If you love animals, especially dogs - we are really the right place for you :-)
