Ponds near Basel?

Hi all,
Does anyone know of good ponds to take the dogs swimming near Basel (within about 20-30 min drive is ok)? We tried to get our older dackel to swim last year at the Wiese and he swims well, but isn't a fan of the relatively quick moving river water.

Oh, and if it is remote, that is even better as we may start training for the DTK Wassertest (duck retrieving) if all goes well.

Thanks in advance!

Julie and the Dackels

Hello, have you been to Lange Erlen in the region of the Badischer Bahnhof? There is a river/canal not too deep and in the surrounding woods there are a couple of ponds.

Many dog walkers use this nice recreation area, as you will see. There is also a parking lot

Yes, we often go to the Lange Erlen for walks, play, etc...

Unless I am mistaken, the ponds within this area are protected habitat for birds. I know that doesn't stop people from letting their dogs go in, but I don't want to disturb them. You are right though, there is a smaller stream deeper in the woods that might be ok for the little one.

There is a shallowish area on the Birs between Münchenstein and Reinach.
Many dogs take their personnel to this place.
There is a very nice path by the river.

Re: Ponds near Basel?

We would also like to find a place for our retriever to swim as he loves water, we took him to the Birs once but it was a little busy for our liking. I have been told of a stream/river that is in area behind Migros in Oberwil (mühlematt). Haven't been there yet but does anyone in that area know of it? Unfortunately we don't have a car yet so our transport is limited. Tempted to get a big paddling pool for the garden :-)
