Hi,

I don't know what the place above is like, but their website is in English and they are not that far from you.

Hi

We have left our 2 jack-russels at family dog a few times and they seem pretty happy there ;-)

Re: dog kennel needed - Vaud area if possible!

I can comment on two of the places mentioned here. We put our dogs and cat in Lorelei once and never again. If anybody wants more details you can pm me.

Chenildebex is probably too far from where you are but for the benefit of any folks in the Montreux/Aigle/Villars area it has relocated to new premises in the countryside. The facilities are new, the dogs have plenty of space to run around and the couple who run it are really nice and committed to dogs.

Hi Shotzie, I am afraid that the kennels that we use are about 45 minutes from where you are. Here are their details. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone. Fabulous people, lovely setting, quality food, (Pro Plan etc) very reasonable prices. http://yellow.local.ch/fr/d/zIQnSvAL...20pour&start=2

Hi shotzie, The lady that owns the place speaks English. Did you check out the picture of my Jack Russell on my previous post? He and our other dog seem happy at the kennels.

I did check out the pic of your Jack...very cute! Our female, Bailey, likes to float on a raft my daughter and I made for her out of styrofoam tubes (noodles) back in our pool in Ohio. Will see if I can figure out how to post the picture!!! P.S. We found a very nice kennel called Stillwagon by Geneva. About 30+ minute drive, but the best of the 4 we visited today!

Re: dog kennel needed - Vaud area if possible! AVOID

Be careful in your choise. I just got back from a business trip and found out my rottweiler had nearly died, by getting wrong treatment for his condition and delaying the appropriate one. This dispite the kennel owner knowing of the dogs permanent medical condition, addisonīs disease. The guy who runs the place doesnīt speak a word of english, and was complaining how much trouble my dog caused. Of course billing was in full for transport etc. This is the animaux passion services aps74 near Annemasse. I couldnīt believe it. Just to warn you if your dog gets sick when you are away.

Thanks for your reply, but the thread is from February this year and the

Will close this thread now.
