Looking for Dog Sitter or Kennel in Lausanne

Looking for recommendations for a quality dog sitter or kennel in or around Lausanne. We have taken our dog to Pension De La Loralei (near Bussigny) in the past, but the last couple of times he's come back ill. As a result we're looking for other options. Any suggestions are appreciated.

I used to take my dog to a kennel on the lake road near Morges.
I found them very reliable.
Maybe someone else will give you the name, or that of another kennel.
If all else fails, send me a pm and I'll rifle through my old bills to see if I can find it.

We used Family dog, in Savigny, and were happy with the care our mutt got there.

Btw, I heard dreadful things about the Lorelei, including from our vet...

Re: Looking for Dog Sitter or Kennel in Lausanne

A quick Google but I didn't see anything in Morges. There is one in Lonay (close to Morges).

Here is their ad. I do not know them but looks interesting.

Thanks, Verbier. It wasn't that one.
Apparently the one I used closed down some time ago. Should have found that out first
Sorry to confuse people. I'm still happy to do some research if it helps the OP

I'm surprised there's nothing more central to Lausanne. I suppose we'll give Family Dog a try. Thank you for the responses.

Animed in central Lausanne babysits dogs during the day, but if you want an overnight kennel there's nothing, no.

Melusine & bce, what did you hear about Loralei? We are thinking of taking our dog there but now I'm curious what others say about it.

Rue du Vieux Moulin 3

Is about 30 mins away near Yverdon, for both cats and dogs. We adopted our dog from friends who could not keep her- and she had to live there for a few months. They were wonderful.

Dogs are kept all together in packs, and the bigger ones get most of the food.

Doggies very often come back sick as they're not properly kept/cared for. Was confirmed by our vet.

Re: Looking for Dog Sitter or Kennel in Lausanne

It seems the dogs are kept outside the majority of the time no matter the weather. For better or worse, our dog is not used to that and came home sick (wheezing/coughing, etc.) a couple of times. They also supply their own food which didn't always agree with him.

Re: Looking for Dog Sitter or Kennel in Lausanne

I agree 100% with the REV.
We have been sending our dog to Fuzziefriends for about a year and a half. She always comes back in great spirits.

It looks lovely indeed, but the prices are not quoted on the website!
