Welcome. Seefeld is a nice area. Maybe explain a bit more about yourself and your age and interests and we might be able to direct you to the circle
of friends you might be looking for.

The best way to find kindred spirits quickly is to take the mandatory dog courses. You will likely meet fellow dog owners in the area, some who might even become friends.

You have 1 year to do the federal course but I'd recommend taking it right away, to meet people and help you and your doglet settle in.

The federal courses (SKN) are discussed in detail on several threads - do a bit of browsing in the Pets corner. I

Zürich has additional courses required beyond the federal if your dog is over 15kg or 45 cm. These are the List 1 Dog course requirements, additional training that takes the place of the SKN. Again, there are threads discussing this in the Pets corner - so hop on over there.

Welcome to Switzerland!

Welcome to Switzerland Hope you and your dog will feel at home here. There is lots to discover and I find it's easy to talk to people if you are walking your dog and run into other dog owners.

Go to the shores of the lake. The humans of the friends of your dog may well become friends of you

Welcome, Seefeld is perfect for meeting people, get yourself a delicious pizza at Miracle (restaurant in seefeld) and eat it in the park which is 5 minutes walking. These few days it will be full of people.

Re: Just moved from New york with my dog, looking for friends!

Welcome to CH! We spent 5 yrs in Zurich with a Labrador, and she loved swimming in the Limmat.

One thing to look out for, forested parts of Zurich and much of CH are full of ticks that carry disease. Our dog swam, so we mostly avoided any problems. But visits with friends almost always resulted in finding one or more of these pesky critters. And many friends came down with tick borne diseases as well.

Have a look in the forums and you will find lots of info. And our resident expert, melloncollie, has posted a lot about it as well.

Enjoy! Switzerland tends to be very dog friendly...

PS - And we met a LOT of people while out walking/swimming with our dog

Re: Just moved from New york with my dog, looking for friends!

I hope you are enjoying Zurich - I moved in May and, while I am settling in, there is plenty that I am still figuring out about Swiss life!

I am based in Seefeld too - it would be lovely to have a chat over coffee or a drink.
