All aboard the Alaska pup bus...

Now if you know of enough open areas in Switzerland to do this in, might be a new business opportunity for you.

Re: All aboard the Alaska pup bus...

I guess local sensibilities are not ready for an F350 bus It should be something like this for small cute dogs:

Re: All aboard the Alaska pup bus...

There's a van in my neighborhood that does this ... the problem is the property to take them to would be hard to obtain / expensive. I'd love to leave the corporate world behind and become a full time dog sitter in the countryside.

Lol. That photo in the article is hilarious. They're all sitting in their seats so perfectly well-behaved, but you know that deep inside, they're all thinking the same thing:

"Are we there yet???"

Yeah. I also like the way they're waiting outside for the bus to arrive to pick them up.

Jazzus, I thought it was a PUB bus, definitely time for a new pair of glasses.

Re: All aboard the Alaska pup bus...

Cute, but not sure that there are that many areas in Switzerland that you can let your dog roam free without being on the line, especially during certain seasonal periods and offering a paid service of supervising quite a sizable ‘pack’ of dogs that you don’t know with just 2 persons (one of them carrying a baby).

Who needs a bus when there is the SBB and ZVV?

Re: All aboard the Alaska pup bus...

Seems pet care businesses are booming in the US.

From today's NYT, 'How These Dog Walkers Make Over 100K Per Year (It's all those pandemic puppies)'

https://www.nytimes.com/2023/01/22/s...-100k-nyc.html


Come the day when the last of the Muttley Crew flies off to Valhalla, offering dog care in some fashion would be a fun post-retirement business, methinks.

I genuinely inquired into this as a potential business when we first moved here and I was struggling to find work. My tax lady still laughs about it because I informed her of my plans when we filed our first return here. She sees my nice salary now and remarks how much better Iím off than as a dog walker. I am genuinely considering it again as I canít do this corporate BS anymore.
