  • Additional info
  • Its a lifestyle that we live... caring for the dogs all the time... and living in nature. Things are back to basic, no luxury.... just appreciating what nature has to offer and taking care of our dogs. Its not so much a job, its hard work, dedication is a crucial, as is your own motivation and independence. We will not be giving you a 9-5 type of schedule to follow...so being practical, hands-on and being able to see what needs to be done is important!
