The experience

Hello traveler! We mostly care for dogs who have owners (which brings great responsibility, at one time we can have up to 25 dogs (mostly in the summer). We also have some dogs who come from the street, who need TLC and socialization. Quite often we have birds or any other wildlife animals that are in trouble (falling from the nest, broken, injured or sick...) that can stay for a few days even weeks in order to recover before they are released.

So that person needs to know what to do if dogs start to play too rough in order to avoid any injuries to the animals or to your own self. There is also always a little bit of work with maintaining the garden like watering flowers or helping to fix the stuff that might get broken by the dogs, painting, or cleaning around the house .
