Now that it is a bit more wet and rainy than usual (!) I am finding that my floors are constantly covered with paw prints and mud. Does anyone have a few tricks to share with me on ways to avoid mopping the floor twice a day or more?!

Hi everyone; just back from a trip to San Francisco which is full of dog creches (what a great idea!). As a huge dog lover I have started to think that this could be a viable business here too. Would any of you dog owners send your dog to creche and if so how many days a week and for what price?

Hi there,  Me and my border terrier (Lewis, aged 6) have just moved to Brussels.  I'm looking for a good dog walker and a dog sitter to walk Lewis on Tues/Weds/Thurs during the day, and to take him occassionally for a few days at a time when I travel abroad for work. Can anyone recommend a good walker/sitter service?  I stay centrally, close to the Royal Palace. Cheers, Ross

Hello fellow Expats, We have three adorable  wire fox terrier puppies (just like Milo from Tintin) and we would like to give them away. We don't want to sell them - we just want to make sure that the adopters will take good care of them :) the only thing we would want in return is that whenever you're on holiday / our of town you leave them with us, instead of a kennel :)  it's a win-win because on one hand you don't have to worry about dog hotels/ pet sitters and on the other hand we will enjoy their company, because we love them very much. The breed is incredibly friendly, curious, energetic and very good with children - great for a family pet.  If you are interested in becoming the proud owner of one of these bundles of love and joy, please contact me at stella.dineva@gmail.com or via facebook.com/stella.dineva  On the link bellow you can see more pictures and also meet their parents: https://plus.google.com/photos/113055047304435668298/albums/5956820305695871793#photos/113055047304435668298/albums/5956820305695871793 Thanks in advance and with kind regards,

Hi all I would need to find a kennel that is reliable to keep my 3 dogs each one with its health issues which need supervision and careful treatment. Anyone has had a good experience in Brussels and around? I do not mind if it is outside Brussels or in another city. Many thanks for this Stella

I am as a tourist in Belgium. I'll like to make an announcement of two dogs but I cannot find any suitable animal organisation from internet. Is here such organisations? Does anybody know. I'm in Ooskamp. This is not a police matter.

Hello We adopted a little dog (cross: border collie / spaniel) a couple of years ago and now that my wife is pregant, we are looking for a reliable person who knows and likes dogs to walk him a few times a week on a morning. We usually walk him around 10 or 11am - either round the immediate area, at the parc du cinquantenaire which can be reached in 5-10 minutes on foot or parc josaphat which is 5 mins by car. Does anyone offer such services or know of someone or is interested themselves? We live between Place Jamblinne de Meux and Diamant.  Thanks Chris

Hello, I am a British translator working in Uccle and looking for a part time job as a dog walker as I enjoy walking in the surrounding woodlands.  Concerning my animal experiences, I am very fond in particular of dogs, and grew up for some time on a farm with a lot of dogs to look after.  So, I very much enjoy being with animals and I am quite flexible with hours.  With regard to my linguistic skills, I am also fluent in French.  Thank you, Ariane Pearson.

I wonder if there are any bird lovers out there who could advise me? I have a wide variety of birds who come to forage in my garden and over the winter months I can't help noticing how wet and cold they are getting. I have put out boxes for the smaller birds but I can't seem to find any nig enough for the ring necked doves, magpies, etc. Any suggestions or comments would be welcome.

Hey there. Me and my partner found a skinny, starving street dog in South America, adopted him and flew him back to Brussels to give him a better life.  Now my partner has moved back to Paris, I am currently looking after him. However now he is a fully-healed, fully-fueled gorgeous German Shepherd called Patagon. He is wonderful with people, and incredibly gentle and playful. He is however not so friendly with dogs, cats, birds or wasps.. So to the point... We are looking for help with him. This could be walkers, dog-sitters, or behaviouralists...Also as I work full time and do not have a garden we are in the process of deciding whether he is will be better off with some other owner, with more space and time. So if you are interested in meeting him we would like to hear from you. However until we have that sorted we really need someone to come and walk him and keep him company when I am at work / away from the flat.  He is fully grown and strong - although my partner can handle him on the lead. He stays on the lead the whole time at the moment - we have booked some training classes to see if we can make him a bit more manageable and eventually allow him to run off lead.. (we hope).  All help welcome and you will of course be reimbursed for your time! Let me know. Chris

Are there any official organisations I can inform about my lost cat? He is microchipped so I am hoping he will be found and taken to a vet's or to the local pound? Any advice would be gratefully received!
