  • Description


    I need help dogwalking and train my 1 year old english bulldog, Olga.

    We recently moved from Oslo to a village near the airport, located 60 km north of Oslo. We live in the center of the village and the surroundings are ideal for walking in the nature, and for skiing in winter.

    We live in a brand new appartment building that you can see in one of the pictures- and have a 3-room appartment on the 3 floor, with a big balcony. You will have your own room and share bathroom, kitchen and living room with me. I have wifi.

    There is a bus stop just outside the building, and every 30 minutes the bus will take you to the town Jessheim in 20 minutes or to Oslo airport where you can take train to Oslo in 1 hour.

    I am semi retired social worker, have some small jobs but much of the days I am free to enjoy life. I had a knee joint replacement surgery last april so I am still in recovery, also being in the 60-ties my dog would like younger spirits to walk and entertain her sometimes.

    English bulldogs are known to be very stubborn. I have had a few workawayers that did not know how to handle this , so it is really important that you are confident with dogs, and that you have experience.

    I basically offer workawayers to spend 2 weeks here, but I have also had people staying longer.

    You task here will mainly be walking/training and entertaining Olga. Evene beeing a bulldog she likes longer walks, so all together 3-5 hours work pr. day, 5 days a week. You will have 2 days a week as your free time- but it does not mean you will be stucked to the house all of your working days I am pretty flexible and hope that you are too.

    I know my country fairly well as I have been living here and there- and can give you good advise for further travels in Norway.

    I am nice when I am nice but I have a "dark" side that is not so nice- hopefully you will not discover it :-)

    My location is ideal for outdoors/ hiking/skiing. Its not far to the main airport, 20 minutes with bus. To visit Oslo, its bus to the airport and train from there, duration appr. 1 hour

    I am a mix between very private and very socialable- I do need me privat " sphere" but can also be quite inclusive. When I make dinner I will probaly invite you to eat with me- and if you want to make dinner and invite me that is also nice.
