Program Details

During the high season, I am very busy with my dogs and guiding tours with guests. I need someone who can help independently, organise themselves and sees what work is to do. I am always open to ideas on how to make my guests more happy ;)
If possible I will let you quite some freedom in how you want to manage your work- and free time, according to the amounts of guests and check-in/check-outs. Longer stays will be preferred. If you also wanna work with the dogs, minimum stay is 8 weeks. We ask for more working hours than usual but as compensation you get to do beautiful tours with the dogs for which the guests pay quite a lot of money. And if possible you can lend the car in your freetime to explore something.


Activities & Shift

main chores:
- prepare breakfast for guests
- clean rooms when check-out
- transfer guests
- check-in new guests
- do laundry
- snow shovelling for workout ;)
