Re: urgent help needed

It’s Switzerland so probably the rate is close to CHF50 per hour. Just kidding. Hopefully someone loving animals will come forward and help. Dogecoin?

I suggest you Google "Hundesitting Zürich" and "Hundepension" and choose the vendor that suits you best. I checked the top 10 results, and the price seems to be around Fr. 80 to Fr. 90 per day. Examples:
Good luck with your search.

Re: urgent help needed

I checked others. Lowest was 45. Most seemed about 65.

Re: urgent help needed

My cats go to Manuela at https://www.cats-residence.ch/ and she's just amazing. Her mother on the other hand looks after dogs, call or write to Manuela and ask about her mum, if you are still looking.

Re: urgent help needed

You might try Petsitting24, a platform that connects casual pet sitters with pet owners needing help:
https://petsitting24.ch/en

Be aware that you will need to take out a membership to post your ad, membership is quite inexpensive though. IME a year’s membership is a better value than a month, as you might find you need help again.

You can do limited browsing before joining, though, so you can see if there are sitters in your area.

You do need to do your own thorough due diligence on any prospective pet sitter, as the platform does not do any vetting, anyone can list themselves. Services offered, and experience of providers, can vary widely.

It is most common that sitters charge per hour rather than per day, you can see what the usual rates are by browsing before you join.

By the way, you might have more luck finding a sitter or kennel with free capacity if you are willing to travel farther afield.

Hope you find a good solution.


ETA:

It’s not clear from your post what type of sitting you need. Are you looking for someone to take your dog into their home, or someone who can move into yours to care for your dog during your absence?

To find the right person, a bit more info might be helpful.

First, what flavor poodle - toy, middle, standard? (Size might matter to some sitters.)
Is your dog male or female?
Is your dog spayed/neutered?

If you need a sitter to take your dog into their home:
Can your dog live with children, if so what ages?
Can your dog live with other dogs? If so, any restrictions as to male/female, behavior, etc.?
Can your dog live with cats or other animals?

If you need a sitter to move into your home:
Does the sitter need to be at your home 24/7?
How many hours can your dog be left?

Again, hoping for a good solution.

A FYI about Pension prices, for all dog owners, not just the OP:

Be sure that you understand if the price quoted is accommodation only, or inclusive of services. Also understand if the accommodation price is for a single kennel, or if the dog will be housed with another dog or dogs.

Some give an all-inclusive price, but many charge extra for services like walks, playtime, giving medicine, preparing special meals, unspayed or unneutered dogs, etc.

Some kennels charge a cleaning fee, most charge a heating fee in the winter months.

Just mentioning this so that one isn’t surprised by the final bill.

Also, most kennels require proof of valid vaccinations, and increasingly more now require the nasal KC vaxx, the combi ist.t enough.

Re: urgent help needed

Assuming your dog is a standard poodle, vaccinated and ok with other (big) dogs, I may be able to host him/her (needs to be spayed if female as I have two males, of which one isn't castrated).


PM me if interested
