Re: Pet Sitting Network

Hi everyone,

It looks like there hasn't been a post on this thread for a while, but I was redirected to post here to discuss setting-up a pet sitting exchange. My husband, our labradoodle Grace, and I just moved to Zurich from Chicago and would very much like to establish a pet sitting exchange for those who want their dogs to have a familiar face (dog and owner) when they go out of town. Grace is a mini labradoodle (~30 lbs) and loves playmates! If you're interested, please let us know.

Kindly,
Meredith, Chris and Grace

Re: Pet Sitting Network

Hello, I am new in Switzerland and I also want to join to pet sitting network!

Type of animal: 2 Dogs
Breed: English Cocker spaniel, Giant schnauzer (riesenschnauzer)
Age of animal: 4 and 3 years
Animal spayed: No
Gender: Females

Environment
House / Apartment: House
Garden: Yes
Any other pets: Cat- perfect with any kind of animals, even someone trying to eat her
Your location : Altstätten (SG) (from 2015 October 1)

My riesenschnauzer female is good with other animals, but needs to be careful with dominate females, because mine has strong character. I have no problem to deal with any kind of dogs (or cats), as I have big experience, so please contact me even if you need help with your strong and complicated character dog.

And I am looking for someone who can take care about my two dogs from 2015 October 16-18. Cocker spaniel is almost like a cat- absolutely no problem,you even don't notice that there is one more dog. Riesenshnauzer- she is well trained,but better if you have male or not dominate female at home. Then will be absolutely easy! If your dog is dominate female- you should have experience how to deal with and do not let them be together alone. Anyway- I have cage for my dog and I always bring it with my dog, and she loves it! so in this case-also possible to find the way

We are looking for someone to look after out kittens from 1 - 18 October - they easily adjust to new places so happy to bring them to your house with all their things (litter box, food etc). They are very cuddly so don't think they would forgive us if we put them in a cat home for that time.m we have 2 children so the kittens are used to them. Will take other cats / dogs / small pets in to look after

Re: Pet Sitting Network

Animal spayed - Yes
Gender - 2 Female and 1 Male

Your environment

Any other information

Two of the cats are very shy and might not easily adapt to a new place, hence the preference to stay at home.


I'm looking for someone to come in once a day during the last week of September to feed them (dry food), clean the litter box and give them fresh water. Of course, I am more than willing to return the favour.

Thanks!

Re: Pet Sitting Network

Your pet
Type of animal: dog
Breed: Vizsla
Age of animal: 1 1/2
Animal spayed? Intact
Gender: Male

Your environment
House / Apartment? House
Garden? No private property but we go for 1-2 hour walks every afternoon in the fields or hills.
Any other pets? No.
Your location: Unterägeri, near Zug

My dog is an energetic, ready to play, wants to be every dogs best friend, and great at cuddling, Hungarian Vizsla. He will wear out your pet with play, along with our daily walks. I work from home and I used to work as a vet receptionist.

Because my dog is high energy, and because my home would be a pretty sweet set up for your dog, I am looking for someone that can offer a really great exchange for pet sitting. So someone who takes their dogs outside to play for 1-2 hours every day, and hopefully won't be away from the house more than 5 hours at at time. I'm happy to exchange with a dog with a lot of energy, too. Your dog must play well with other dogs.

My dog is also crate trained so can stay in a crate at night and while you are out.

Canton of Zug is great, but I am open to any nearby Canton.

I am going away for approximately December 16 - 22. (But contact me anyway if you can't do that but are interested in exchanging services this spring or summer.)

Re: Pet Sitting Network

Your pet
Type of animal: Cat
Breed: Snowshoe (Siamese)
Age of animal: 1.5
Animal spayed: Yes
Gender: Male

Your environment
House / Apartment: 2nd floor attic studio
Garden? Yes but not enclosed.
Any other pets? No
Your location: Lausanne, by Vers-Chez-les-Blanc (public transport right by house)

Any other information:
We'll be going away from January 22nd 2016 to February 17th and need someone to pet-sit and/or house-sit. My cat is quite low maintenance: he has a food dispenser for dry food, and uses the human toilet. He can be very energetic at times and could play bite (but he never bites hard enough to break the skin)

What you'll do:
Replace the water
Refill the food dispenser if necessary
Flush the toilet
Give him some love!

Please let me know if you're available!
Best is if you can go over every day, but every 2 days is okay too. You can also stay in my place.

My pet
Type of animal: Dog
Breed: Labradoodle
Age: <1 year
Animal Spayed: yes

My environment
Flat
Garden: No but we live 2 minutes from walking trails, open fields and mini waterfalls
Location: 8706 Meilen

Additional Information
We are adopting a Labradoodle puppy, and would like to get to know other local dog owners in Küsnacht - Meilen - Uetikon. We'll wait until our puppy is comfortably house trained before entrusting him to your care.
Our experience with dogs is with Labradors, and we are happy to dog-sit a well behaved (house trained, minimal barking) dog. Please PM me if this type of arrangement is interesting for you.
We live in Meilen with our 3 month old Yorkshire Terrier/Poodle puppy and I wanted to know if you would be interested in meeting up so our dogs could get to know each other? If they get along, we could potentially trade pet sitting in the future. We wouldn't ask you to sit for us until our pup is a bit older, but we would love to have a playmate for him until then! Let me know!

Summerrain,

I think this is an EXCELLENT idea because I am always looking for a dog sitter and am also willing to dog sit myself. I have currently found one family through English Forum who trades dog sitting with me, but it would be nice to have more options too when they are not available. I would love to join your Pet Sitting Network. Below is my information:

My pet
Type of animal: Dog
Breed: Black Labrador
Age of animal: 2 years old
Animal spayed? No
Gender: Female

Your environment

House / Apartment? Apartment with a huge garden in the complex
Garden? No private garden, but a huge garden as mentioned above
Any other pets? No
Your location Meilen (Lake of Zurich area)-5 min from the forest and great off leash walking trails.

Additional Information: I stay at home during the day and take my dog on many off leash walks throughout the day.

I am currently looking to trade dog sitting while my husband and I go to the states June 11th-27th. Please PM me if anyone is interested in watching our dog. I would be happy to watch your dog while you are on holiday too.

Thanks,

AggieCoco
Hey I know you posted quite some time ago, but I was wondering if you're still in the area? We also live in Meilen with our 3 month old puppy, and we would love to catch up with other dog-owners in the area for play dates. We wouldn't need a pet sitter until he is a little older. But it would be great for him to get to know your dog, and if all goes well we could potentially sit for you and trade favours in a few months or so. Let me know if you're interested!

Re: Pet Sitting Network

Hi I would be very happy to cat sit (if my cat is happy with a house mate) or visit a cat in their own home and hope someone may be able to do the same when we go away.

My pet;
4 year old neutered male cat.
Not use to other pets

My Location;
Binningen, near the outdoor pool.

Simba is use to being on his own when we go on short trips, would just need someone to visit every 3 or 4 days this summer while we are away for 2 weeks.
Would be happy to reciprocate.

Re: Pet Sitting Network

Dog sitting (exchange) needed 5-16 of May 2016
Hey,
Who would like to do pet sitting exchange?
I need someone,who can take care about my two girls (riesenschnauzer and english cocker) during my holidays from 5-16 of May.

I have a lot of experience with breeding, grooming, training. And I am professionally working as "hundesitter" in Switzerland. I have done SKN course, I have self employed status, professional insurance and etc.
But I also need holidays sometimes and I am looking who can help me! For exchange I can take care about your pet when you go for holidays,because I live in the house, I have experience even with complicated dogs.

My dogs are not complicated. Riesenschnauzer is strong female,but very smart and educated (but better you have a male, not strong big female, otherwise need to know how to deal with it). If you have kids-better that they do not afraid of dogs, because then my girl feels it. But she never do something stupid and never attacks.
Cocker is absolutely a toy.But she afraid of kids so she can hide all the time from them.

I can bring my dogs to your place, doesn't matter where you live (SG or Zurich area).
And I promise a good place and care about your dogs when you need!
