We are moving to Blonay in July 2015 and I would like to find somebody to swap dog sitting with. A lot of posts on this thread seem to be Zurich based so it would be nice to see some local ones. ��
From your profile location, you are already in Blonay...
Good luck finding a swap!

Re: Pet Sitting Network

I have just stumbled upon this forum, specifically because I want to travel to Geneva and was looking for pet sits in the area. House/pet sitting is my profession in the US but I will be on an extended vacation in Europe and am looking for pet sits as an exchange rather than payment.
I have 20 years of house/pet sitting experience here in the States, Portugal, and Spain. I am able to provide contact info for people that I have had long term relationships with. I have excellent references. I really enjoy spending time with pets and stay in contact with owners while I am sitting.
I went to boarding school in Geneva years and years ago and have never been back.
I will be flying to Europe in April and will be available for sits in Switzerland beginning in June. If anyone would like more information about me, please contact me.

Thank you,
Melinda

Re: Pet Sitting Network

Our pet, Nancy
Type of animal: Dog
Breed: Pug/Beagle mix
Age of animal: 6 years
Gender: Female
Size: 13.5kg

Our environment
House / Apartment?: Apartment
Garden?: No, but large lawn
Any other pets?: No
Your location: Ruschlikon (near Zurich)

We'd like to do a dog sitting swap with someone local to Zurich. We would like someone to watch our dog from May 8-10th. Our dog Nancy does well with big or small dogs. She has lived with cats before and does fine. We wouldn't be able to watch cats though because my wife is allergic. We have lots of dog experience. Last year in California we had 15 foster dogs come from the shelter to live with us (one at a time) until they were adopted by forever families through the rescue organization we volunteered with.

Pet Swapping

Hi!
I am living in Zurich for two years with my fiance and my dog. We love to get out and travel, but I'm not so keen on the price for dog kennels for long periods at a time. I was wondering if there's anyone out there in the same position that would be interested in taking care of each other's dogs while the other is traveling. I will be gone for three weeks straight in July and am looking for someone reliable, outgoing, and trustworthy that would take care of my dog. I would return the favor anytime you need

Let me know if anyone is interested!

Thank you!

Re: Pet Sitting Network

Hello pet owners,

I currently have some time on my hands and would like to offer pet sitting in Thalwil/Zurich and around this summer.

My experience:
I have a spoiled but very loving cat and I'd say I can handle almost everything about cats .
On the other hand, I only have a very limited dog experience as I never owned one. My OH's parents have the most gorgeous huge leonberger that I occasionally walked, but that's about it. I'd be most grateful if I could walk someone's doggie if they entrusted me one.
My OH (a regular on EF) is more experienced with dogs as he had one of his own so i'm thinking that if someone wants to go for a weekend getaway, both of us could help you out.

PM me if you're interested.

I will also add myself here.

We live in Wädenswil and sometimes need shorter or longer help with our cats. Our cats are easily adjusting to the new place so there's a possibility of taking them to your place. We've taken a few times cats to our place and we're happy to do it again.

Next time we need help is 8thJuly-6thAugust. Anyone?

Just seen this network, what a great idea. We are new in Zurich from the UK and moving into an apartment in Witikon on 1st July. Myself, my husband and our 2 daughters love dogs. We would be very happy to have a dog to stay with us from time to time in return for looking after our dog for occasional holidays or weekends away. We have no travel plans as yet.

My cat has never been in a cattery,and is quite timid.
I'm going away for just over two weeks in September.
I'm looking into either leaving her in a cattery (though I know that she'll be totally stressed out) or someone who could come by twice a day.
I'd be happy to reciprocate.
I should add that I don't drive and don't have any experience with dogs,only with cats.

I'm don't think she would cope well in someone else's flat... Also she's not used to dogs,children and other cats.She's affectionate once she gets to know you and loves being brushed.
Would anyone be happy to come by twice a day?
Thanks.

Hello, I could potentially help. I will be moving to Bäch at the end of the month. It depends on how close you are to the station as I am without car, and how often (my cat is a pretty independent fellow and is normally happy being fed every couple of days when I am out). Send me a PM
