We are Giovanni and Salvatore, father and son.
Giovanni lives in a house that also serves as dog pension, near Montelepre, a rural village in the sicilian heights 30min away by car from Palermo. He he mostly takes care of stray dogs, who need medical care, food and clean compounds. He also owns a goat, some rabbits and chicken and a duck. We will need help with these duties, and also with general maintenance, help with housekeeping, repairing and building new or better fences, adjusting the compounds, cutting wood, etc.
There are a lot of things that can be done and we are always open for new ideas, to make it a better place.

Salvatore owns a dog school, where he (re)educates dogs with behavioral problems and also gives lessons to owners and their four-legged friends. The school is in a village at the seaside, as is his home, where he takes care of other dogs together with his girlfriend.

You will live together with Giovanni, a smoker, and you will have your own room. Usually we will work 3-4h in the morning and and in the afternoon you will be free. We will provide food and eat two meals together, as Giovanni likes to cook and show you what the italian and especially the sicilian kitchen has to offer.
For you to have your privacy is very important to us, but we also enjoy having people here who donít spend all their free time in their room only. As Giovanni has another job, he will drive down a lot, either to the sea from where there are connecting busses, or also to Palermo directly.
He will enjoy showing you around the most important sightseeing spots, getting you to know palermitanian street food or also spend an evening to see Palermoís nightlife and have a good chat whilst drinking a beer.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.

Tanti Saluti
Salvo and Giovanni.
