Looking for some doggie friends...

Hello,

I have been here now for 3 months and Bella my black lab is desperate for some friends. We go for walk everyday and meet people on the way with dogs but as I don't speak German very well they are not interested in stopping.

I would love for a companion for Bella as I think ahe is getting a bit bored with me all the time. We are based in Pfaeffikon, ZH and happy to travel to new places.

She's 16 months, playful but very obedient. Loves to swim and run very fast.

Any takers......?

Re: Looking for some doggie friends...

I'm still trying to find a place where I can let my scheißter Schnauzer run and play without risk of running off and getting hit by a car. Otherwise I'd join you.

Re: Looking for some doggie friends...

I've tried organising dog walks on here previously, but never seem to take off. Kinda gave up after that.

andrea and KF, if you two are keen, I know of places in Zurich where your dogs can go bonkers running around if its not too far for you. There's the Zollikon allemend where my dog loves because it has a forest and big big open fields.

I also live near Lake Zurich and andrea's dog can have lots of fun swimming. Let me know and I'll set something up.

Zollikon is doable for me. I have a car so its a 30 min drive, which is not far.

We have a few forest near us but lacking in the open fields to throw balls etc.

I'm up for a visit to Zollikon...KF?

We have a 20 month old Goldendoodle and would LOVE playmates. We're in Zurich, in Wollshofen, about 5 minutes from the lake. Annie just flew over a few days ago, and I can tell she's already bored just playing with me.

I'm at Zollikon and would love to join you if you set something up. Walking and chatting is so much nicer for us as well as the dogs

Re: Looking for some doggie friends...

Hi there! I live in Pfaeffikon ZH. I have an 8 month old welsh springer spaniel. We would love to get together for a doggie playdate. I do not ever let Millie off the leash, but hopefully we will get there some day! IM me if you are interested.

Re: Looking for some doggie friends...

I wish i was closer ! I am here since 2 months now, walk my dog twice a day and I have never been able to meet other dog owners... But I have the same problem that you have darkhorsedrea, as I don't speak german, people don't stop... I can't blame them.


@ summerrain : i saw that you tried to organize dog walks before I move in CH, and i thought it was a great idea ! I am surprised that it didn't work... But if you feel like trying again, i am definitely in !

Yeap pretty surprised too especially when there was positive responses for one. I tried more than a couple of times and simply gave up. Perhaps someone else has better luck?

Oh yes a little far for me I am afraid :-(

However, once a month I drive to Bad Zurzach to go over the border with the dogs for the vet. Meeting on the way is possbile. Not due to go though until mid November.

Re: Looking for some doggie friends...

oh yes, it is ok !
Gaia is half lab half border collie. But you have to know, I am not sure she will play with them... she is nice with other dogs, but not so much of a player anymore... But she will enjoy a walk with other dogs !

Anyway, if you don't mind about that, I'll be glad to meet you three !
