Any other information
Our girl is a rescue pup. We got her when she was 6 months old. I don’t specifically need any overnight care – we already have kennels we are happy with. Really, I am hoping to build up a little network of people who can care for our girl for the odd day at weekends (eg. all day Saturday or all day Sunday). This is so we can occasionally do day trips to venues where dogs are not allowed. We have a 4 year old kid, so Doggy is used to children. I am happy to do the same for you, or, if you prefer, I can do some dog walking for you during the week.

Any other information
Tbone, my black cat of 16 years, and I have an unusually strong bond, and when I leave she becomes howly. Although in general, an independent old girl, she just misses her mama. So I would need someone to come on the dates July 15-July 20th. My husband will be back by then, but if you can catsit until I come back July 25th, that would be even better. You would just need to do the usual kitty stuff: feed, water, cat box, but also play and cuddle with them.
In return, I would be happy to pet sit for your: cat, dog, rat, turtle, etc around my vacation dates. OR, I am also a pet portrait artist and I can professionally paint your pet in return for your cat sitting service.

Hugo is the love of my life. When he lays on you, if you don't pay enough attention, he will give you a little nibble to remind you he is there. And he loves to play fetch with the little rattling mice scattered all over the house.

I would need someone to come by once a day from: Saturday June 11-Sunday June 19, spending 30 minutes to an hour giving him love and feeding him. This can flex to one day less on either side b/c these are the actual days I will be gone.

In return, I am available to pet sit any animals really (I love dogs and cats most of all), as long as they are in the nearby, surrounding areas. And I am around the rest of the summer.

Please pm me if you are available.

Re: Pet Sitting Network

Type of animal: dog
Breed: English Springer Spaniel
Age of animal: 2 years, 7 months
Animal spayed: yes
Gender: Female

Your environment

House / Apartment?: House with lots of woodland nearby
Garden: Yes, small
Any other pets: No
Your location: Bremgarten (Aargau)

Other details: Holly (our dog) is very friendly (to humans and other dogs). She is not cat friendly! She is well trained unless she is on a lead (true Springer).

We are also looking for anyone who might be able to look after Holly for two weeks from 17 June until 3 July. Please PM me if you think you might be able to help.

Thanks

Re: Pet Sitting Network

This is a great idea - thankyou for setting it up. Not sure my needs can be met as I'm starting Uni in September, so need quite a lot of dog sitting for Meg:

My pet
Crossbreed Terrier (Border x Patterdale)
17 months (in July 2011)
Neutered and fully vaccinated
Female

My environment
Apartment
No garden but walks in Sihlwald, up to Uetliberg and along the Sihl.
No other pets
Zurich

Any other information
I won't have much time from September to take other pets but may be able to offer some sitting over the summer and at odd weekends. We can't take cats - Meg thinks they're great for chasing, she's not good with them. She is a really people and dog friendly dog and will just want to play all day. I'm really looking for help from Sept-Dec 2011 while I'm full time at ETH.

Looking forward to hearing from someone!!

Katie

Re: Pet Sitting Network

Hi, everyone, count me in. I can't take care of your pets in my apartment, but I would be more than happy to come to yours to look after your animals! I'm happy to walk dogs, play with cats, whatever.

My pet
Type of animal: Cats (we have 3)
Age of animals: 8, 6, and 2 years
Animals spayed? Yes
Gender: Male

My environment
House / Apartment? Apartment
Garden? No
Any other pets? No
Your location: Zurich

Any other information
Our cats are indoor-only. They're pretty low-maintenance, except that one has special food and can't eat the others' food, so you have to watch him.

We're looking for pet sitting for August 4-15, a week or two around the Christmas holidays (we'll be back before the new year), and maybe another day here and there (but nothing planned yet). I would be very happy to return the favor, whenever possible!

Re: Pet Sitting Network

My pet
Type of animal: Dog
Breed: Havanese
Age of animal: 2 years
Animal spayed: Yes
Gender: Female

Mv environment
House / Apartment: Apartment w/ large rooftop terrace
Garden: no
Any other pets: cat
Location: Basel

Additional information
I am looking for a dog sitter from July 24 to August 1. Our dog is very sweet and good with children but has a tendency to bark when she hears other dogs barking or strange noises so it's probably best if she is not in Basel city proper. She gets along well with other dogs, particularly her size, and loves cats.
