  • Description


    Family in the Forest of Dean looking for help :-)

    I live with my two sons and two dogs and run my own business. General help needed such as walking dogs and just being an extra pair of hands.

    You will be living in a family environment and treated as such. However you must be able to work on your own initiative - if something needs to be done then you shouldn't need constant instruction. we are very relaxed and flexible but do expect kindness, manners and a fun approach to life!!

  • Help


    Dog walking, help round the house. I am out at work a lot as I have two businesses and am very busy right now. The most important thing is that the dogs are walked each day and some evening childcare.

    You must be responsible and prepared to spend time without my supervision.
