Re: Pet Sitting Network

Hello!

I'm somewhat new to town and will be getting my dogs here soon. I have had many anxious times in the past when I was trying to find stable care for my boys, so this forum could be a great thing to be able to offer a nice place as well as find a nice place for our loved ones!

I work, but my apartment has a dog door with access to a fenced-in garden. Any dog I would host would either need to stay in a crate during the day or know how to use the dog door. A couple of training visits ahead of time plus a drop off on a Friday afternoon would ensure that your doggie will be all set to roam around the apartment and yard while I am at work.

Pet I am looking for:
Type of animal: dog
Breed: preferably small or mid-sized; good-natured; larger okay if she/he fits through dog door
Age of animal: does not matter, but my boys are almost 3 and 5
Animal spayed: does not matter; for male dogs, I would need to see that an intact dog would get along with my boys and would not pee all over my apartment
Other: prefer dog with its own GA if it needs one. I like to hike and would want to get the dogs out with me if I go on a hike or a walk far from the apartment.


My environment
Apartment: apartment close to a forest and with a dog door to garden
Garden: Yes
Any other pets: Yes (2 male cocker spaniels, very sweet)
Your location: Wipkingen

Re: Pet Sitting Network

Hi e&jh,

We are moving to Basel from London on 14 November, so I am sorry that I read your post a little too late

We have a beautiful golden labrador retriever.

We could meet up and maybe look after each other's dog one day?

Regards,
Alessandro & Tauxab

Re: Pet Sitting Network

Hi Clara,

The calendar is a great idea! Have you thought any more on it? I, too, have received many emails but it is rather confusing to know sometimes if someone is asking for help or offering. I just posted what I thought was a simple request for help looking after my two boys, and the forum administrator deleted it, calling it an "ad". It's hard enough to find a place to live that accepts pets - it would be nice if this forum could be more helpful. If you haven't figured out the calendar idea, I'll have a look into it and see what I can come up with. It would be so nice to know that our dogs are well looked after!

Hi all,
I am not sure how effective was this thread. I received many messages, I sent various email and replies but got no answer.
I wonder if we could create a calendar of pet needs and then you can reach out to the corresponding person.

Pet: dog
Breed: Beagle
Gender: Female
Age: almost 3 years

I wonder if someone could take care of the dog between Dec. 19th and Jan 3rd?
Your answer is much appreciated.
Thank you,
Clara

Re: Pet Sitting Network

Hello I will move to Basel (Binningen) next week with my beloved Bernese Mountain Dog, named Rembrandt.

He is 3 years old, neutered and well socialized. He loves little dogs and big dog friends too. I would love to meet new people and go on dog walks. Rembrandt loves the snow as well and he is great off-leash. We are moving from Annecy, France.

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 )
Are you still interested in trading dog care? We have a 3 year old black lab + 2 cats. Looking for someone to have our lab (Oscar) 14-21 Feb plus other times. Happy to meet up this week for a walk together. We live in Worb (Bern)
