Looking for Dog Play near Zug

We just moved to Baar, and our 16 month old Vizsla is desperately seeking some canine play. He loves all dogs, no matter the size or age! We can meet morning, day, or evening for a romp anywhere in the surrounding area (Zug / Baar / Cham, etc.).

Relatedly, are there any dog play areas near Baar (designated or unofficial) where we can meet other dog owners and spontaneously find other dogs in search of a friend?

Re: Looking for Dog Play near Zug

The practical part of the SKN mandatory course will help you and your doggie make some new friends. Look for a trainer for both theory and practical parts near you here:

Or you could do the theory online - there are two approved trainers who offer them, one in German, one in English if you prefer.

Online BLV approved SKN theory courses

and then find a trainer for the practical part.

Re: Looking for Dog Play near Zug

Welcome to baar. We have a little dog who unfortunately doesn't like to play with big dogs, I am also 8 months pregnant so we are not really ideal walking companions at the moment. However if you go to the sennweid fields behind the Victoria areal buildings you will probably meet lots of other dogs and owners, both on and off the lead. You could also try walking up to tobelbrucke and back across the fields from the one training centre/ottos in Baar. There are quite often people up there walking dogs too. We have been here for a while I don't know of any official doggy play areas, but there are lots of nice places to walk. Message me if you need any more information. Happy to pass it on.

Re: Looking for Dog Play near Zug

Thanks Sophie76! My wife recently explored that area on a couple occasions after your recommendation, and on one of these outings our dog finally got an opportunity to run around with another four-legged friend. He was apparently beside himself with joy. Now we have moved to Aegeri, which I've heard can be a bit easier for findings dog playmates. I hope so!

Re: Looking for Dog Play near Zug

Welcome to Aegeri. It is really quite dog friendly here, as long as you have good control of your dog, and show that control. Be aware that the rules in Ober and Unteraegeri do differ in that, in Ober your dog needs to be on the lead, I think in all public areas, whereas in Unter it is only in certain signed areas that they must be on the lead. There is at least one other Visla in Unteraegeri. I am sure you and he will have a great time exploring.

Re: Looking for Dog Play near Zug

I regularily see other dogs out and about here (Unter) and it is a point to not that we aren't as strict as Ober. If you see a fella with 3 chocolate labs on your Ägeri travels say hi... it'll be me
