Your pet
Type of animal: dog
Breed: bichon havanese
Age of animal: almost 5 years
Animal spayed? yes
Gender: male

Your environment
House / Apartment? Flat
Garden? No
Any other pets? sometimes a male bull terrier 2 years old spayed
Your location: Bern

I am mostly away during the weekends but i could dogsit during the week sometimes. My dog is not very fond of big dogs as he was bitten twice by big dogs. He prefers of course the little lady dogs.
It would be very nice to meet with other people in Bern (preferably Ostring area) with small dogs for them to socialize and play together a little.

Re: Pet Sitting Network

Brilliant idea- thank you.

Your pet
Type of animal: cat
Breed: regular domestic
Age of animal: 5 years
Animal spayed? yes
Gender: male

Your environment
House / Apartment? Flat
Garden? No, balcony with folding windows
Any other pets? No
Your location: Brugg

Any other information
Indoor cat only. He loves company, not necessarily always up for cuddles but will stay close as he just wants to know you're there. Still loves to play, particularly with the what I call 'fishing line' cat toy (stick with toy attached to elastic). He is afraid of dogs so would only be able to welcome other cats into our home (sorry!).
May be going away for a few days in early Dec, so might need to look for some help for then.

Re: Pet Sitting Network

Hey guys, if anyone needs petsitting/dogwalking around the Lausanne area give me a shout. I'm a total animal lover and have a little experience in handling them professionally (worked in a petshop and my sis was a vet lol).

Re: Pet Sitting Network

What a nice idea!
I thought I would fill one out for future references. I'm moving to switzerland in under 2 months


Your pet
Type of animal: Dog
Breed: Border Collie
Age of animal: 20 weeks (D/O/B 6th October 2012)
Animal spayed? No (Not getting done until fully matured. 2-3 years old preferably.)
Gender: Female

Your environment
House / Apartment? -- (Will edit when I have arrived in Switzerland)
Garden? --
Any other pets? None at the current moment
Your location: Hoping on Canton Bern.

Any other information
Pup's name is Shamaya. She's a typical energetic pup at the moment.
Her favourite games are Fetch and Find *item here*.
She will be (currently only fed Raw, however using F4D as treats to get her used to it) fed a mix of Raw food and Fish4Dogs. Anyone watching her can just feed her F4D if they don't feel comfortable feeding Raw. If she will be at my place her meals will already be made, ready to put in to the bowl.
She currently has about 1-3 hour total of walks a day. I plan on doing Agility/Flyball with her. I would also like to take her hiking up mountains with me so she will need to be fit!
Shamaya gets on well with most Animals. She however is very scared of barking. If you would like me to watch your dog when I move to Switzerland I would prefer to meet up first so our dogs can get to know each other. She loves cats straight away so they will be no problem. She also knows when to leave them alone.
She is used to the smell of small animals because I frequent pet shops a lot. (I'm a little obsessed )

Re: Pet Sitting Network

After a 30+ year hiatus, I'm a pet owner once again since October 2012, so it's high time I joined.

Your pet
Type of animal: Dog
breed: Mutt of many kinds. We suspect part Border Collie, part Jack Russell Terrier.
Age of animal: 10 months
Animal spayed? Not yet, gotta wait til after the first heat, so any day now...
Gender Female

Your environment

House / Apartment? Free-standing house
Garden? Yes, fenced in (1 metre high fence)
Any other pets? No
Your location Zürich North (Oerlikon / Seebach area)

Our "Cookie" is a bit shy / timid, and could use more contact with other dogs. It would also be good if she "traded places" occasionally with another dog or we took turns with someone looking after two dogs. She really needs to get out more often and be around "strangers", both canine and human.

Hi guys, she is Cookie

We are looking for a pet sitter who can take care of her for one day per week starting from April, 3rd.
She is big but really relaxed during the day as she sleeps most of the time. She likes to play with every other dogs, she doesn't bark and she is really lovely with kids.

I usually work from home, but one day per week I will have to go to Zurich.

I am available to have with me other pets if you need.

Cheers!

I would need someone to watch my dog over the weekend every now and again and I wouldn't mind watching another small dog whenever needed.

I am from the United States and recently moved to baden Switzerland. Speak English. Between my boyfriend and I we are home 95% of the time. Otherwise we have a room with a dog bed and crate for another dog to stay in. Will feed and walk your dog, same with mine in return.

Loving small dog, gets along with other animals pretty well.

Re: Pet Sitting Network

Do any of you need a dog sitter in Basel? I work from home, and am in Kleinbasel. I'm happy to help occasionally for short walking. I'm always happy to have an excuse to go for some fresh air.

Re: Pet Sitting Network

Halo Everyone,

I just moved to Switzerland (Zug) with my wife and had to leave my dog in Peru, I'm currently with some free time if anyone needs a dog sitting or walking I'm your man! I love dogs and generally they love me back lol.

Re: Pet Sitting Network

Dear All,

Me and my husband need to be away from Wednesday, May 8th morning to Saturday, may 11th noon.

We are in need of someone who can take care of our Mel, 3.5 year old, neutered, yellow Labrador Retriever between these days.

He is not an active dog, needs not that much exercise for those 4 days, so all you need to do is taking him out for potty 2-3 times a day and feed him in the morning and evening.

He is crate trained, sleeps most of the day.

You can either visit our house to feed him and take him out, or take him to your place for 3 nights (4 days). We live in Kreis 10.

Please PM me if you can help at this point!

Thank you very very much!

Re: Pet Sitting Network

wondering if there is someone near Neuchatel that can help with our new dog. He is a Berner Sennenhund 4 months old, we just need someone to look after him once a week. Can in return look after dogs or cats when needed.
Thanks
