Re: Pet Sitting Network

Just to add, we need someone who is experienced with dogs for both, especially the Husky. Meanwhile, we live at the foot of the Uetliberg and walk our dogs there frequently if anyone wants their dog walking x

Re: Pet Sitting Network

If you are going away for a weekend or a few days, we are a couple of friendly dog lovers that would be more than happy to look after your dog.


Your environment
House / Apartment?: Flat
Garden: Big terrace (the dog won't stay or sleep there; won't be unattended while outside)
Any other pets: No
Your location: Rapperswil

No fee, only the food and toys the dog needs.

We both had dogs for 15 years and usually go for long walks, or short... depending on what the dog needs! It is not a cage like daycare!!!

I miss my own furry friend very much, and get jealous when I see other pet owners with their dogs, so if there is ever any need for someone to look after yours while you're away, I'd be happy to do it.

Re: Pet Sitting Network

Hi all,

We moved to Bulach in Zurich a few months ago, all settled and looking for other dog owners to take turns in looking after the dogs for the odd weekends when the owners need some time away.

Type of animal: Dog
Breed: West highland terrier
Age of animal: 1 year 8 months
Animal spayed: Yes
Gender: Female

Your environment
Apartment: Ground floor
Garden: Lawn area public to block but no one uses.
Any other pets: None
Your location: We live in the Bulach/Bachenbulach area, many fields and forests within short walking distance. Always one of us at home and we walk our dog on average for an hour or two per day.


Any other information

- We love all dogs and also cats if they don't mind our curious Doodle trying to play with them. We are hoping to plan a weekend away in December, depends on luck.

- Our pet Doodle does not bark and very friendly towards everyone though she is a little scared of large dogs due to a bad previous experience. two toilet breaks and one walk per day will make her nice and happy.

Thanks

Re: Pet Sitting Network

Hello everyone

This is my first post so I will introduce myself with my pet

I have been living in the Bülach area since 2003 but originally from Canada. Only found out about the forum recently!

I have faced the same problems when it's time to quickly find soemone trustworth to look after our youngest family member without spending a fortune. So I think this is a great idea.

My pet
Dog
Labrador Retriever
2 1/2 year old
Yes
Male

Our environment
House with garden
No other pets?
Bülach area

Would also like to meet up with someone in the area for a walk and to let the dogs play together. Our dog is very social (he also attends "dog playgroup" once a week) and loves the company of other dogs.

Thanks!

Re: Pet Sitting Network

Thanks for this post - I've just moved to Zurich from Houston, Texas and am in the process of bringing my 10 year old Pembroke Corgi over. I've been looking at the posts and wanted to know if there was a way to sort based on Pet Sitter's location? I live in the Bellevue/Seefeld area and might need help letting my dog out and feeding if I travel for a day or two on business. Can you suggest a good way to search? Thanks in advance for any help.
