Please read some of the threads about importing your dog and the laws around keeping a dog in Switzerland.
Most important Blueangel! I wouldn't go anywhere without my dogs!

Unfortunately the small matter of Brexit has had an inescapable impact on the UK. More obvious in some areas than others but be in no doubt everywhere has felt the impact.

100% - Everything is geared around him and his well being and ultimately me enjoying more of the country than I would have done had he not been here.

I don't know which is the more endearing Rocky, your heartfelt text or your beautiful dog!

Re: To Switzerland again or not - that is the question!

I guess Switzerland changed a lot since 10 years. Not about he everyday living but about the attitude towards intruders (foreigners) to their country. Remember the referendum from 2014? If not google it. Not to point a finger at anyone but in my eyes the Swiss are doing nothing to change, and perhaps would like no change at all, but the world changes even in Switzerland so the locals blame the foreigners (EU or not) for the ongoing (world, technology, etc.) changes.


The Swiss are very friendly and peaceful people but once they see you by any chance as the one who 'steals their job' the idyllic atmosphere vanishes. Again, not to start a flame war, in any part of the world it's the same situation, when you're not native but better qualified than the local the local would lean to state that it was better before you came. Over the time it changes to an over-simplification as it's better without the foreigners stealing our jobs.

Re: To Switzerland again or not - that is the question!

I'd say come back. Having lived in 6 countries, Switzerland is by far one of the highest quality of life - especially for dogs.
I don't quite agree with meloncollie for Hong Kong (I've lived there too) being the best for dogs in general. It probably was for her - as an expat on a very good package (from how she described her home, life - sailing etc) and those days are gone long ago. For dogs, I honestly think here is the best - the obvious beautiful nature, hiking trains, not to mention that you can bring your dog almost anywhere and everywhere. You are fortunate that home is only a short flight away. Good luck with your decision!
