Re: Kennels in Zurich for Boxer

Congrats on the move and hope you enjoy your time in Switzerland.

Make sure you do your SKN course and also check if you need to do other courses as well, some larger/heavier dogs require further courses in Zurich.

Also when travelling make sure you understand each canton's rules for walking your dog, they're all different so what applies in Zurich won't necessarily be the same in Geneva. Some info here:

And there are plenty of threads in the Pet Corner section to check out too.

I checked Meetup.com and they didn't seem to have many dog meet up groups either...
Start one!

I just moved to Zurich and having a hard time finding a pension home for my 10 year old boxer. Have a business trip to go on, and no one seems to like boxers. The minute i mention boxer, there voice changes. Any advise or good pension for a quiet 10 year old boxer for 5 days.


Did you check on xpatxchange.ch for kennels ? or Google for petsitting VIP's by Agatha Zurich. Also you can ask your vet for further information. Good luck!

Re: Kennels in Zurich for Boxer

MLG, your pup is adorable!

If you are interested in doing therapy work here, you might want to get in touch with these folks:

http://www.therapiehunde.ch

Or
http://www.blindenhundeschule.ch/sozialhunde.html

(The last is the guide dogs for the blind organization, but they also have connections to a 'socialhund' program, so worth investigating.)

Additionally, some nursing homes appreciate visits from friendly well trained dogs who are not official therapy dogs, so you might check out your local Altersheim or care facilities.


( I will be forever grateful to the wonderful dogs and their caring owners who regularly visited my father, an Alzheimer's patient. The dogs were the highlight of so many residents' day.)



Good luck to you and your pooch as you settle in!




(Also a note: be sure to verify that any pet sitter you hire has done the federally mandated courses. The responsibility to do so remains with the owner, unfortunately not all who advertise themselves as sitters are compliant.)
