Reliable dog sitter?

Relocating to Geneva next month for work and I'm thinking about bringing my dog with me. (She's a 2-year old Border Collie and Lab Mix).

Can anyone recommend a reliable dog walker/sitter? I'm not sure if its a good idea to leave her alone at a new place....

Re: Reliable dog sitter?

Are you looking for someone to come to your home, or a private person willing to take your dog into theirs, or a professional day care setting?

For the first two, take a look at Petsitting24:
https://petsitting24.ch/en

You can post an ad detailing what help you need, and you can browse the profiles of sitters looking for work.

To contact a sitter you have to pay the membership fee - but it's relatively inexpensive, and since this is a rather unreliable labor niche you will likely need to search for several sitters - making the cost of membership a better value.

A caveat, though: This is a connection platform only - it is up to the owner to do due diligence. You need to vet any potential dog walker very, very carefully.

Do make sure you understand Swiss/GE prices before you get too far down the road.

---

By the bye, it is not unheard of here that a rental contract will have a clause stipulating that dogs may not be left alone in the flat. Check your contract carefully before signing on the dotted line.


Good luck with your search.

Hope you found someone, it's definitely not easy in the german part of switzerland..

Don't mean to be pervy but I have a border collie and lab mix and I get super excited when I see another one coz they're "unofficial" and quite rare. Any chance for a pic?
