Re: Pet Sitting Network

I am so glad to see this thread. I recently posted to another thread offering to catsit, but self-deleted because I figured the whole insurance/strangers in your home thing might get tricky. But I'm game, if you all are

Just so you know my situation, I don't have my own pet at present. My 18-year old cat died year before last. I was heartbroken and couldn't contemplate getting another one for a long time, had visiting cats in the garden so that was ok, but then I moved to CH. I travelled enough last year to make it unfair to have my own cats here. Hoping to travel less this year and now considering adopting, but in the meantime would love some contact with cats - I never see any on the streets or in gardens round here.

Glad to visit your cats in your own home in Basel-Stadt or to bring them to mine while you're away if they're happy with that. I like dogs, but am not a dog-person, so not really up for dogsitting. But would also take in small furries such as hamsters, rabbits etc. Probably not at the same time as the cat/s...

Your environment
House / Apartment: Apartment
Garden: Balcony (but wouldn't be letting a visiting animal out there)
Any other pets: no
Your location: 4053 Gundeldingen, Basel

Offering Pet sitting for small animals in Zurich

I am able to offer Pet sitting services for a weekend away or a short trip for playful and gentle dogs and cats. I live in a spacious apartment near a river/canal with nice walking trails and a play area.

We (my 5 year old and I) are currently "pet less" and are very eager to have some playtime with your pets.

Please PM me if interested.

Thanks

Re: Pet Sitting Network

Looking for a petsitter from the 4th till the 9th of April

same with other pets (no cats or rodents)
house trained although accidents happen when very excited
needs a lot of human contact but can be left alone for a while. he has a spray collar which works wonders when he wears it.

all in all fantastic dog

Happy to share dog sitting. Our Beagle is called Max & is a very loving, happy dog who seems to get along with all breeds (baring Schnauzers - not sure why, but they don't seem to like Max at all).

Re: Pet Sitting Network

We are just in Hongg, and also looking to meet other families who could trade dog sitting. Our dog, Luna, is about 7 years old, mutt. Great with kids - not possessive of her toys or food, has done really well with our 14 month old. So we'd like another family with a small child, with a kid-tested dog to swap sitting. I've been told by at least one daycare that a female dog is likely to get along best with a male dog.

Type of animal: dog
Breed: some heeler, maybe some coon hound, who knows, 20 kg
Age of animal: 7 yrs
Animal spayed: Yes
Gender: Female
Apartment: large balcony, woods nearby
Any other pets: no
Location: Hongg
We try to get her out 5 times a day - morning and night pee, and an hour total of walks otherwise.

Re: Pet Sitting Network

Your pet
Type of animal: Dog
Breed: Border Collie (female)
Age of animal: Just over a year
Animal spayed: yes

Your environment
House / Apartment: House
Garden: yes, fenced in
Any other pets: No
Your location: Liestal / BL

Ideally we are looking for another Border Collie owner, or a very experienced dog sitter/owner. Also, this pet swap idea sounds really good. The dogs and owners can get to know each other which makes looking after the pets much easier.

Re: Pet Sitting Network

Your pet
Currently petless.

Your environment
House
Garden
Merlischachen - near Luzern.

Recently become petless.

I would like to look after a dog for a weekend or a cat for longer. Can't do a dog during the week as I'm at work and the dog would have to be left alone all day - which isn't right, even though I do have a garden.

I live near Luzern but travel by car to Zurich every day so could pick-up/deliver.

I'm an animal lover and would take very great care of your pet.
