Re: Dog parks in Switzerland

i used to live by Brunau Allmend
though it CAN be a good place there are some irresponsible dog owners there
that give the place a bad reputation ..
i now go by the ZUrich see, there is a nice area off Widmer str.
it is just where Kilchberg meets Zurich
near the tennis courts SEa Blick
the dogs that go there are tame as sheep, you can let your dog go free in that area and have no fear some vicious dog or person may complain.
Have heard horror stories about Brunau Allmend, my own sweet mutton was attacked and you know how the swiss like to take responsibilty for their dogs..
so try the lake area avoiding the area where there are a lot of people like around the ship dock area
another great place is Adlesville, if you go to Sihlwald on the train and walk towards ZUrich, there is a nice walk for a dog that likes to walk and enjoys a swim!
Kilchberg itself has a nice walking area around the hospital where the wheat grows tall at the end of the line 184
good luck !
p.s. as for the rules, when in Rome, i ignore them as long as others do the same but i do pick up the poo (how do you spell that?) for polite reasons
