DOG DAY CARE/DOG WALKER ADVICE - 2 dogs from Scotland moving to Zurich

Hey guys!!!

DOG DAY CARE/DOG WALKER ADVICE PLEASE

First post here!! In June myself and my 2 dogs, (working cocker spaniel & cockapoo, both 2 years old, both neutered males) will be relocating to Zurich

Pet Passports sorted. Dog Courier booked. All new collars/harnesses etc purchased and they're ready for their new adventure! (think that's all I need right?!)

BUT...

I will be attending language school in Zurich, most mornings for about a month before starting work in August in Olten. Obviously this means as of August I will be commuting, and although my boyfriend will occasionally be doing home office work, I'll be needing to set the dogs up with some sort of arrangement.

At the moment, I either have my mum come and take them for a couple of hours in the day to break up the time - they go the beach or whatever. OR I have a dog walker who takes them for 1 hour. Personally I would LOVE some kind of dog day care situation where they could be picked up by someone, taken for a walk, back to their house or whatever for 2-3 hours and then dropped back off.

Am I dreaming that this is possible in Zurich? I've been Googling the hell outta dog walkers/day care etc but I thought I'd ask the expat experts for some advice!

Any and all advice welcome!!

Ta!!!!

Hi! Depending on where you will be located in Zurich, dog day care with pick up and drop off is quite popular here. It is usually best to meet with the sitter and see if your dogs fit in with the other dogs in his or her daycare. Most places offer a trial walk with you and their pack.

If you are living in Seefeld, the gold coast or Zumikon area I can recommend Natalie she used to take care of our dog in 2015. She speaks English!

It'll be a bloody long commute to take them to beach from here

I recommend this two 2, they both walk in zollikon and have picking up/dropping us services.
I am very special with my dog and truly recommend both of them.
