Place in the country - zurich canton


Can anyone give advice on good places to live in Zurich canton with a country, village, open spaces feel that is dog friendly? I have heard some towns are more dog friendly than others.

Also close to public transport as we will be working in Zurich city and travelling by public transport (would prefer to not be further than 30 minutes out of Zurich city).

Your advice would be appreciated.

Re: Place in the country - zurich canton

I've only been here two weeks and we have a temporary apartment in Horgen until we can find a house within my wife's firm's approved zone. For some that need public transport by train, Horgen is a quiet town. For those that can get by with a bus to train station, nearby Hirtzel is a village. Hirtzel is probably just within 30 minutes by bus & train at a guess but they seem to be building lots more apartments there.

For me, Horgen is a city, but then I'm not used to living in an apartment being overlooked by all of our neighbours and neither is our Alaskan Malamute. If you have a dog that is used to the open space of the countryside, living anywhere near Zurich (from what I can tell so far) is going to be difficult with a dog if you can only find an apartment.
