Looking for that special someone who adores and enjoys spending time with Dogs to help out with the day to day activities of our Show/Breeding Kennel. Work is not difficult and lots of opportunities for Canine cuddles and Puppy Play. Our Dogs, although a full on energetic Breed are generally well behaved, well mannered, and are always happy. Some are House dogs, so you MUST be comfortable with this and having `Lap Time` as they LOVE cuddles. This all means that you must love Dogs enough to make an effort to `connect` with them in a POSITIVE manner while at our Home.
We appreciate a minimum of 2 weeks as it takes time to learn the routine. We are a Friendly welcoming Couple, who have had many years Hosting BackPackers, with many Friends made and return Visits.
While we do NOT believe in taking advantage of our Helpers ever, we do love those who get in and really help take the pressure off our very full days (not add to it)....Initiative, Responsibility and Attention to Detail are BIG pluses!
*All Meals - Sorry, no Special Diets. While you will be very well Fed, we are not a Restaurant, you eat as we do :)
*Internet Access - Some minor limitations MAY be applied to ensure you don`t disrupt our Connection.
*Own Furnished Room (Double Bed) within our Family Home.
*You will be treated as Family! Part of our reason for opening our Home to Travelers is for the Cultural Exchange, this is a give and take, we appreciate Helpers who integrate WITH us and are not anti-social.
*Must also be Cat Friendly.
* Our Address will NOT be used for Visa Entry into Australia, so please ONLY apply once IN Australia.
Our Property is in a VERY pretty, REMOTE area, perfect for those liking the peaceful surrounds. Please Note: we have no Mobile Phone Coverage on our Property.
Wonderful Opportunity to gain some knowledge/experience in Animal Husbandry/Grooming/Training.
* As Jenn is an Empath, ONLY Positive, Happy People Please.
* NON Smokers only - NO exceptions, smoke and the smell of smoke is life-threatening to Jenn.
* Only apply IF you are genuine Dog Lovers. This IS important, our Dogs are VERY good at picking out those who like the `idea` of dogs rather than REALLY enjoy the company of them. Please Note: Obviously it does take a few days for our dogs to become accustomed to new Housemates. Some Idea of Canine Behaviour is most appreciated. Experience in Kennels is NOT needed, just Love.
* We are looking for Helpers who want to be HERE with us, enjoying our Dogs etc, we are NOT looking to be a last resort because you have nowhere else to go or other options fell through.
* For the SAFETY of our Beloved Dogs we have Strict Guidelines in place when we have Helpers. If you are not willing to RESPECT and FOLLOW these Guidelines, please do not apply!
* Please understand - As a Kennel, we have many Dogs, sometimes they have something to say, while we do NOT encourage Barking (we actually dont particularly like it) there will be times they can be a little noisy - Feed time is popular lol - PLEASE do not come here expecting nothing but Silence from the Dogs.
* Our Time is precious too, if you make a Date to come, please honour this....while we understand that circumstances can change, we also do not like to be let down and sadly we have had people just not turn up, please be considerate.
* If this Add is up, it means we are looking for Help NOW, we are not able to plan months and months in advance.
* Please understand that due to a severe ongoing Illness, Jenn has some disabilities and limitations, this will not impact your work load but your consideration and compassion for this is necessary.
* Please include the word `Spaniel` in your email to us to show that you have read this Profile completely :) - We will only respond to those who do so.....
**Please Note: We are Registered Breeders with the Australian National Kennel Council and adhere to a strict Code of Ethics**
**Our Dogs will always come first**
