Pet Sitting Network Zurich Dog Walk

Based on the Pet Sitting network thread that I created some time back, I've received quite a number of PMs to meet up with some owners and their dogs for potential dog sitting swaps, and I just havent organised myself to meet half of those people.

Hence, this gave me an idea to create a monthly dog walk for those in the network, who are based in Zürich or surrounding areas near enough, to meet up.

It is open to people who are:

1. have already joined the network and havent met other canine owners
2. you just simply want a play date for your dog
3. keen on exploring new trails and exercising their dogs

Hopefully, through the walks, you'll be able to find suitable matches and swaps from the network, and extend your canine (and human!) contacts. Please can everyone indicate their interest (I am guessing weekends work best for everyone) on what time/day suits them best and we'll try to lock a monthly dog walk (location will vary depending on members suggestions) where old and even new members to the pet sitting network can join.

Also appreciate any feedback / suggestions for trails that you might have to make this idea fly.

I've been meaning to do this for the longest time and apologies for not doing so earlier - and also, my apologise to the owners based in other parts of Switzerland - maybe someone can take the lead and organise something similar from there?

Re: Pet Sitting Network Zurich Dog Walk

A little last minute, but is anyone up for one this Sunday? The weather forecast is looking good! 14 degrees and sunshine!

Was thinking of the Zollikon Allemend but I am happy to try to find a more centralised location based on people who are interested!

Re: Pet Sitting Network Zurich Dog Walk

Hi Summerrain,

I'd be happy to meet you for a walk (doggy play date) tomorrow. Anytime is fine with me if you still want to go. I live close to Schwamendingen (Zurich), but I can come to Zollikon if there's a nice trail there.

Where should we meet? I'll come by public transportation.

Arghhh...maybelstar, I cant believe I missed this!!! It was gorgeous weather today and it would have been great to meet up.

Weather for next Sunday looks fantastic. Will post up an Event so that everyone interested can RSVP and we can get this off the ground!!

EDIT: Event has been created. Look forward to seeing you all.

Re: Pet Sitting Network Zurich Dog Walk

Hey dog lovers!!!

I would join you this weekend for play date with Nina! Let me know a time and a place! Brunaupark (Allmend park) works best for me, but I can drive elsewhere. Brunaupark has easy access with public transportation though.. With both tram and train stops right in front! Point of reference is Silhcity, it's the biggest dog park in the city, hard to miss it!!!

Let me know! Yey! I am looking forward to this!!!

Ah yes, Brunaupark completely slipped my mind when I was arranging this. Next time for sure!

Re: Pet Sitting Network Zurich Dog Walk

Are there any regular dog walkers along the gold coast who fancy meeting up on a regular basis?

Re: Pet Sitting Network Zurich Dog Walk

I'll be seting one up for third or last week of Feb soon - somewhere in Zürich city this time - most likely the one behind Sihlcity as its more convenient for most people.

Look out for it.

Re: Pet Sitting Network Zurich Dog Walk

Wow, this sounds like a great idea! My family and I will be relocating to the Zurich area this Summer. Monthly walks would be a great way to meet other dog owners and explore the area. I'm hoping by replying to this post I'll get updates on your walks so Rufus and Rosie will be able to join you in August!

Re: Pet Sitting Network Zurich Dog Walk

So what about the folks who had to leave their dogs behind

Can we come and offer to dog walk sometime for those who might be too busy?

I walk up to the 'Top of Zurich" by Uetilberg, almost every day

I love dogs and miss mine. I saw the cutest dog the other day,long haired dachshund with a terrier mix in there somewhere. Very cute face.

Ya so if anyone wants their dog to attend, and they can't it would be a good chance to meet and great.

kirley, come along! BTW, have you seen this thread?
Pet Sitting Network

I've set it up for pet owners to exchange contacts and build a network of pet sitters who are extremely expensive here. If you fancy time with a furry friend but dont have yours here, why not join in and help take care of other owners' pets? For more details on how it works and its objectives, read my first post in that thread.
