Boarding kennels / pet sitters

I want to go away for a couple of weeks from around the 20th July and am looking for some recommended person or decent kennel to look after my dog.

He is older and recently had an operation so I am keen that he doesn't go to a place with a lot of young bouncy dogs as he is quite a laid back sort and and just likes lying in the sun and gentle walks out. He is 11, doesn't bark and is very gentle (greyhound). He is not cat friendly and small rodent pets or rabbits could possibly have an issue. But apart from that he's simply gorgeous. Fully house trained, vaccinated and has passport.

I am on the French side of the border near Basel

From your avatar I thought he might be a Basset.
Most kennels are fully booked for the summer holidays. They are booked so far in advance.

Re: Boarding kennels / pet sitters

Please Fidget, don't take offense, but Mrs Doolittle is right- if you need somebody for the Summer hols or Christmas/Easter- it is absolutely essential to organise way way in advance.

Would you be able to have somebody stay at your place for the duration and how much are you prepared to pay. I have a British friend who lives just over the French border but near the Alps, who might be prepared to do it. I can ask her.
