I live in Kreuzberg and would love to find someone to exchange pet sitting services with. As with many other people, the big time will be over Xmas this year. I have three cats who are all well-behaved and friendly. I worked for a pet-sitting company outside Washington DC for several years and can even provide the reference if wanted.
www.cyprusdogs.eu DO YOU TRAVEL FROM CYPRUS TO GERMANY We are searching for people who are flying from Cyprus to help us to transfer dogs to Germany At Cyprus Dogs Rehoming Association www.cyprusdogs.eu we have made it our aim to help Cyprus dogs in need to be homed to dog-loving people in Germany or anywhere else that can give our dogs a happy future. To date we have helped nearly 400 dogs to find new and loving homes outside Cyprus. Our dogs are delivered direct into the hands of their new forever homes. The dogs we send would otherwise spend their entire existence in dog shelters or, even worse, would meet an untimely end after spending a sad existence in a dog pound or on the road. As victims of our own success we find that we can home more dogs than we have space for on the flights we have available and therefore we are searching for people who would take one or more dogs with them on their flight. There is no cost or inconvenience to the traveller. We bring the dogs to the airport in plenty of time, we take care of all the formalities, and see to the loading of the dogs. When you arrive at your destination the dogs will be met and handled by our people who will be expecting them. Dear dog-loving travellers, please consider our request and help us in this way. You will be helping not only to save a dog's life, but to give it a wonderful future. Please call us, we will be happy to discuss with you any questions you may have. Many thanks… Contact: email: email@example.com or direct to me through this board Helen
Our family is moving from the UK to Berlin end August and we have 2 fancy rats and 1 guinea pig. Leaving them behind is not an option as much as I would like to grab the opportunity. I have visited numerous German and British government websites, but they mostly focus on cats, dogs and ferrets. It seems as if rodents are allowed to move between EU countries without paper work and vet check, but they aren't very specific. Has anyone done something similar? We will stay in a hotel for up to a week before our furniture arrive and I will have to board them somewhere. Anyone know of such places because not all pet shops offer that facility. We are going to rent a house for 2 years and will fly over early July to see what is available in Charlottenburg. How tolerant are people if you have rodents as pets. Will it be a problem? I will phone BA on Monday to ask about transport and cost, but any tips would be welcome. Thanks
Hi, my name is Kirsten and I live in Rathaus Steglitz, Berlin. I have two beautiful dwarf rabbits. Unfortunately I will be away from July 17th until Augsut 13th (approx) and all of my friends are unavailable. I am looking for someone, possibly with experience in looking after rabbits, who would be willing to take care of them during this period. Please email me for further information.Thank you =)firstname.lastname@example.org
We took the plunge and bought a pair of Russian dwarf hamsters (two females) having been assured that this type can live in pairs unlike Syrian hamsters who are solitary. For the first few days they were so timid we hardly saw them and I began to wonder if they were a figment of my imagination. Now they are a bit more used to us and the noise of the apartment they come out and play, scampering around their cages at the speed of light and running in sync on their respective wheels. We have two adjoining cages with a tube inbetween and there is a house and a wheel in each and one of the cages has a little turret attachment they can run around in. All so far, so good. The problems started when we tried to clean the cages and put them in these little exercise balls the guy from the pet shop recommended. We could only tempt one of them into a ball and she happily roamed around. The other would not be coaxed so we gave up and left her in one cage whilst we cleaned the other. Since then (so we think) they have started to fight and I have tapped the side of the cage to stop them on more than one occasion. One of them has also taken to sleeping in the turret attachment. Unfortunately I notice she eats her own excrement there too. Is this normal? Surely not? I love them to bits, they really are sooooo cute and entertaining but we do worry about the scrapping and would appreciate some advice.
My neighbours have a small dog which is ok most of the time but it is very yappy and recently seems to bark at the drop of a hat. I am sick of being woken up at weekends - my only chance of peace and quiet and just generally fed up of hearing it when I am home. It's owners don't seem to notice - they are German, 50/60 ish and I get on ok with them - i.e. to say "Guten Tag" if we meet on the stairs but thats about it. I dont want to upset them - obviously they have lived in the building much longer than I have but my German is quite basic and I don;t want to upset/annoy/offend them by saying the wrong thing. Not sure what I should do, any advice?
I am in Berlin. It is 3 am. and I just found a tick crawling up my leg. Okay, I went for a long walk in the woods this afternoon, but it's been snowing all day for crying out loud. Maybe this tick was hibernating in the dog bed, I don't know...do ticks hibernate? All the dog/cat bedding is sealed in bags for the moment. Has anyone heard of ticks in February? Can anyone help me out here? I apologize for the slightly desperate tone, but ticks in the wee hours tend to get to me. Especially in the middle of a snowstorm.Many thanks in advance,Akell
Hi there!I have promised my girlfriend a pet and so far I have considered all of the above but would like some feedback on habits, lifespan, cost etc. before taking the plunge. I'm not fussed on fish and a dog/cat is not low maintenance enough. Any advice appreciated.

Hi there, I've recently lost my cat-sitting partner and would very much like to find a new cat-sitting exchange partner. Of course, I'm happy to look in on dogs, but can't host them in my apartment. I will be away in the UK and Canada from July 8 until August 3 and need someone either to take my cat, Patches, or to visit her regularly. As I say I would like to establish a long-term exchange and intend to be in Berlin over Christmas. Also, although I'm less happy to think of boarding Patches, if you know of reasonable kennel situations I'd be happy to hear about those. Thanks very much, Robyn
Hi everybody. I just arrived in Berlin, I live in the Mitte, and I am desperately looking for a cat sitter. I have a urgent problem to solve and need to get back to the Uk for 10 days. Does anyone know of any person or agency doing cat sitting in berlin? Thanks a lot for your very nice help, andy
Help! I will be visiting Berlin in October, I need to have information of which parks I can walk my dog. Also, my toy poodle and I will arrive from London at Tegel airport and I wonder if anyone knows the airport well enough to tell me if there is anywhere outside the airport where I could walk her a bit before we take a taxi to our hotel? I would be so grateful a reply Karina karina
I am going away for a week in August and need someone to look after my hamster Colin. He is very cute, pretty antisocial - sleeps all day and runs around in his squeaky wheel for hours on end during the night - make sure you have somewhere you can put his cage away from the bedroom. On the plus side, very low maintenance! Anyone willing to have him for a few days or anyone know of pet shops which offer a pet sitting service?
