My dog needs some friends

Hi,

We have recently moved to Allschwil with our golden retriever Maxy. He has just turned 1 years old and is very lively. He is pretty good with his obedience, however he tends to get very excited when he sees other dogs and just wants to play.
Can any one suggest somewhere we could take Maxy to integrate him with other dogs for him to have a bit of fun and some more exercise.

Thanks

Re: My dog needs some friends

I'm not sure if this is your cup o' tea, but there is a dog school at the Wiese that we go to: http://www.hundeschule-basel.ch/index.html

It's 200CHF a year for 32 classes of 45min-1hour each. It's pretty much the cheapest thing I think I've found activity-wise for my dog in Switzerland. Right now the school is on summer break (I believe it ends this Saturday), but it's a great opportunity for dog socializing and obedience classes. It's in a nice fenced in area near the river.

The trainers speak mainly German or Swiss German(but most know English and will help via English if necessary), but there are a variety of people and dogs (Dachshunds to Greyhounds and Labradors from puppies to 11year old dogs) that normally attend.

I know this has really benefited our Dachshund and now we often run into dog school friends at the Wiese.

Re: My dog needs some friends

I can recommend your dog school too, we pay 120 eur per dog and go once per week for an hour, but you can do as often as we want - there are classes I think at least 4 times per week. Separate areas for big and small dogs, so the Pyrenees would not step on the Jack Russells. Trainers speak French though, some German as well. PM me for more info.
