Vets and kennels near Montreux

Hi guys, I'm moving to Switzerland in July and I'm trying to locate a vet and boarding kennels for my 2 dogs. House sitter would be a good option too. I'm not great with French yet so English speaking would be best. I've looked at past threads but they seem to date around 2010/2011?
Any recommendations would be appreciated. Many thanks x

Good, not on the banned breeds list then.

You do know you'll need to do a SKN theory and practical course for dog owners, don't you? It's mandatory unless you can prove to the cantonal vet office that you already have the necessary knowledge/experience. You'll have to do the practical part with each of your dogs. Search "SKN" in the Pet Corner part of the forum, there's plenty of threads there on the subject.

Switzerland is much more regulated than the UK as far as dog ownership is concerned. You'll need to become familiar not only with Vaud canton's rules, but also the commune you end up living in as they can all be different from place to place.

You'll also need to take them to a vet within 10 days of their arrival to be entered into the ANIS database and you also need to register them with your commune and pay a tax for them.

Wow! I knew about registering them but didn't know about the course. Will have to look that up. Had dogs for 46 years. Can't think what I wouldn't know but thanks for the heads up 👍

Then you well may not need to take it providing the vet office agrees. But it is mandatory without the vet exemption and can be a great way to meet new people too. It's not very long from my understanding, something like half a day to do each part (the practical part has to be done within a year of registering your dog/s) and there are trainers around who can do it in English if your French isn't up to it. Here's a list of approved trainers for Vaud:

Here's a thread with more info too:
