The Experience

La Canina es un Dogstel. Los perros pasan días con nosotros mientras sus humanos van de vacaciones. El plan es: colaborar 3 días a full y descansar 4. Durante los días de colaboración, se ayuda con los perros, limpieza y mantenimiento. ¿Los días libres? A disfrutar! (LEE DESCRIPCIÓN COMPLETA DESDE UN ORDENADOR PARA SABER TODO.

An amazing experience, highly recommend to anyone who loves being away from the city and in the mountains. You spend time with amazing people with all sorts of backgrounds and the dogs are for the most part amazing.

I do advise that you take the time to understand that you will be with dogs all the time while you are here and are AWAY from the city, if this doesn’t suit you then this may not be for you.

A humbling and loving environment, you will not regret your stay here, also make sure you speak Spanish and in return you’ll also learn a bit of Catalán :)

Llevamos 5 meses aqui y trabajamos cada dia para que sea un sitio mejor. Esta separado de la ciudad y además de que está totalmente explicado, es la magia del lugar. En la ciudad no hay estas vistas ni esta paz :)



Well this was my second experience as worldpacker... and i could said is one of the bes moments of my life. Irene and Ester are awesome girls, they made me feel like home, the job is easy but you need to have patient with the dogs, you can learn a lot in this place. Masnou is a near city to Barcelona, so i recommend you to come here with the best vibe and energy ! I will be back soon.

Gracias Iván. Estaremos encantadas de tenerte aca de nuevo.



Work in INOSH for me was a good experience. You can have a big experience taking care of dogs during the nights (7pm to 11am), at this period you have a room to stay with all the dogs and there you have a kitchen, room and bathroom. I really recomend for persons who like animals and dogs, for them was gonna be a great experience. Irene and Ester was really nice people and always helpfull to solve every problems and to help you when you need.
