West highland terrier breeders in Lausanne/ Geneva

Hi,
My fiance has agreed to an addition to our home when we move. I've just left the full-time workforce (1 day unemployed so far) to enable our move and plan to start 'creating'. When the move was first mentioned and the discussion had about me giving up my splendidly fantastically wonderful and sometimes stressful and annoying job, I placed two proviso's on our move.... 1. I get a studio to create in and 2. I get a puppy (I've been hankering for one for years). Asking for a puppy is one of the few sentences I know in french .

My fiance thinks this is a great idea as it will ensure I get out of the house (I have a tendency to get fixated and forget the world outside exists... especially when it's cold out!) and I won't phone him every 15 minutes to talk.

We're looking at getting one in the new year as we have a fair bit of travel to do when we first arrive, we'll be back and forth to Australia a fair bit initially.

But (finally) to my question!
Does anyone know where or how I would find a reputable breeder of West Highland Terriers in the Geneva/ Lausanne area? Also, where I'd find a puppy pre-school/ school? We're both going to need training

Hi Nic

Your best start is the Schweizer Club for Terrier

Click on Rassen / Zuchter and it will show you a comprehensive list of all terrier breeders here in Switzerland. Loads of Westie breeders out there to choose from and I am sure there will be some near where you live.

I will go for those SKG registered breeders first even if it means travelling a little further, as SKG registered breeders have to adhere to an extremely high and regulated standard of breeding.

Be ready to be quizzed by the breeders here and be grilled about your lifestyle and reasons why you want a dog

Cant help much with a dog school down there but I am sure someone will be able to.

Good luck and I wish you all the best in your search!
