doggy sitter

We are bringing out our beloved cavachon who is 1 year old this weekend and we are desperately searching for a doggysitter who can look after her from May 1st - 11th. She has only ever been left with family before, can anyone recommend a reliable dog sitter? x

Re: doggy sitter

Strudel, it might help you to find a sitter if you give a little more information, for instance:

Are you looking for a sitter who takes your dog into his/her house, or for a sitter who will move into your house to care for your dog?

If the former, can your dog live with other dogs, cats, children? Any restrictions?

Would you consider 'Hort' type care, where there are several/many dogs cared for in a family-like setting?

Are kennels a possibility?

Are you in Zürich city, or elsewhere in the canton? Are are you willing to travel?

---

Hope you find a good solution...


ETA:

Two platforms listing sitting services:

http://petsitting24.ch
https://www.betreut.ch/tierbetreuung

Be aware that with both platforms one must pay a subscription to get the contact details of the sitter .

Re: doggy sitter

  • we are ideally looking for someone who would take the dog into their home, our dog is very friendly and our old doggysitter had cats, dogs and children and she was fine .
  • We are not keen on the idea of kennels.
  • We live in Zürich city centre and are happy to travel up to half an hour to drop her off and pick her up .

Many thanks

xxx

It is in Effretikon, so there is a direct S-Bahn. You can bring the dog to the station and they will pick him up for free. If you want to see the premises, they will take you too. The dogs live with them in their house (no kennels), there is a small fenced area in front if they need to run a little and all the dogs are taken on walks twice a day (not all at once, usually it's small dogs vs. big). They are friendly and my dog loves them. They speak little English, but my broken German is enough .
