We are Rob & Felicity, British citizens who have taught in 12 different International Schools on 4 continents over a 40 year period. We have now retired to our longtime home in Southern France. We are experienced dog and cat owners (or should that read: we have been owned by experienced dogs and cats?!) We are healthy and active non-smokers. We recently travelled back to Europe from Hong Kong without using any planes. It was boats, cars and trains all the way.
After decades helping young people from a myriad of nationalities to better themselves, we have decided that we've done enough for humans for now; we plan to devote our time and energy to animals for a while!
We are experienced home owners. We have had our large old house in France for over 20 years, and during that time, we have overseen several major improvements, and carried out dozens of minor ones ourselves. We are both fluent French speakers.
We are also very experienced handling and relating to dogs. While working in Bangkok, we were heavily involved with the Soi Dog Rescue organisation. We frequently fostered rescued dogs to socialise and housetrain them prior to their transfer to permanent homes overseas; and we ran an activity with students in which we would visit temples which had large streetdog populations and have a vaccinating/grooming blitz.
We would be thrilled to meet your menagerie (whatever it may consist of) and would be fully committed to providing them with a rewarding and enriched existence, and providing you peace of mind, while you are travelling.
