Urgent! Doggy daycare or pet sitter in Lausanne

Hi All,

Could you recommend a good doggy daycare (or a (reasonably priced) pet sitter) in Lausanne? We need someone to watch our little dog while we are at work (8am to 6pm). Preferably someone who has other dogs, but we canít be too picky!

Thank you
Kamya

Try looking on Petsitting24:
https://petsitting24.ch/en/

You have to subscribe to the service in order to contact a sitter (it's not expensive to join) but before doing so you can browse the site to see if there are appropriate sitters in your area.

You might want to give an indication of the range you consider reasonable, as dog care in Switzerland tends to be pricier than what you might be used to back home.


Good luck; I hope you find a good solution.

I did my dog diploma with Valentine who now owns and runs a daycare in Lausanne, website link attached. I have no idea how much it costs but I would guess in the region of CHF30-35/day. She doesn't speak much english so let me know if you want me to connect you on WhatsApp or facebook. Good luck! http://www.picassoandco.ch/

Try Polly at www.pollypetsitter.com in Lausanne. She takes care of cats as well as dogs and offers very reasonable rates.

Re: Urgent! Doggy daycare or pet sitter in Lausanne

Thank you, All! And apologies for my tardiness in replying! I’ll get in touch with Picasso first and then Polly. Polly offers more of a dog walking service.

MC - I checked petsitting, but good grief, 25 an hour! Upon further investigation, it seems that the general model is more of dog walking as well. None of the seemingly preferred pet sitters had availability. Still, fingers crossed!

Hi Kamja, My daughter has friends living in Lausanne who might be able to help you with your dog-sitting request. They are called Alexandra and Joel, and their telephone number is 079 264 18 45. Joel speaks some English.


Good luck - if you have any problems with language, etc., send me a private mail or, if you wish, your telephone number.

Re: Urgent! Doggy daycare or pet sitter in Lausanne

All,
I just wanted to update this thread in case anyone asks similar questions in the future.
We ended up using Picasso & Co - a wonderful doggy daycare in Lausanne. The went (Valentine) does a fantastic job, including devising fun games for the dogs. Needlesss to say the dogs adore her! Itís also relatively competitively priced. Unfortunately, itís not in central Lausanne, but there are public transport links.

We did look for pet sitters in central Lausanne but the prevalent model is very much dog walking, rather than dog sitting. Our dog has separation anxiety (and sheís taking her own sweet time to get over it!) so this was not a viable option for us. Plus, in retrospect, for a young dog, itís jusy much more fun to be with loads of other dogs at Picasso, rather than alone at home!
