Last place available for 2018 from 3rd September up to 15 October.
Welcome to wales. Stay on a farm and help to look after Sled dogs and Sheep dogs. If you want to, you can also learn about dog training, handling and grooming in your spare time.
This is a peaceful and secluded farm in the Welsh countryside ( with WiFi ), a quiet place to get away from it all, maybe do some meditation and get in touch with nature.
Dog Training, Dog Handler training, Rehabilitating aggressive dogs, and Sheepdog training are some of the things I work at.
The work is, cleaning out the kennels, refreshing water bowls, carrying buckets, walking the dogs 2 times a day ( Once in the morning, and again in the afternoon ), and then letting the dogs out again last thing each night just before bedtime, and a little help around the farm and in the house if needed, sawing or carrying logs to the house for the fire, washing up etc.
4 hours of work a day maximum - 2 hours in the morning, and 1 1/2 hours in the afternoon and 1/2 hour last thing to put the dogs to bed for the night.
In exchange for Brunch and evening meal, mostly vegetarian. Tea available all day :-)
Your own bedroom in the house, near the bathroom and use of WiFi and washing machine.
1 person for 1 month or more preferred.
English needed ! Enough to understand instructions about working with the dogs.
You will need to bring some outdoor / waterproof clothes and boots for working outside.
Helpers with an interest in dogs and dog training or interested to learn, and with enthusiasm and friendly attitude welcome.
