I've just moved to the French Alps and I'm struggling to get pet insurance for my 9 year old labrador. He doesn't have any health issues but all of the insurance companies I have contacted tell me they won't insure a dog over 7 years old. Can anyone suggest a company that insurers older dogs. Many thanks Sarah

We are looking for a home for our cat 'Tiger' for this summer (mid-June-end of August approx), as we will be overseas and can't take him with us. The ideal home would be near Annecy, with a garden & no dogs/other cats! Of course we're happy to pay, aswell as providing all his food etc.. Any ideas?

We will be bringing our Hungarian Vizsla with us to our holiday home in the near future once all of the pet passport process has been completed. Can anyone recommend a vet in Bourg for us to register our dog with to complete the necessary treatments prior to our travels back to the UK. Obviously it would also be helpful to have her registered for vetinary care should it be required whilst we are there on holiday. A practice which speaks some english would be helpful given our french is very limited.

I need a house/dog sitter from mid May through to end of September (dates slightly flexible) as have been let down at last moment by the person that agreed to come. I split my time between France and Bulgaria. I have three dogs and this time instead of doing the journey back to Bulgaria with all 3 I would like to just take one who is more used to travelling and explore Italy and a few other places on the way back. I would like to find someone wanting to spend the summer in the French Alps and who would look after my other two dogs and also maybe do some landscaping and gardening and ideally if you are a good dog trainer, you'd be a Godsend! My place is in the town of Bozel, in the Bozel Valley, 10 minutes from Courchevel ski resort. So if you are a keen mountain biker or walker or golfer this area would be ideal for you. There is also a small lake where everyone gathers to go swimming in the summer and loads to do for those that like the outdoors. The town has a butchers, bakers, two mini super markets, two or three good restaurants and bars. There are regular buses down the valley and from there you can get to places like Annecy, Chambery and Albertville. A car would allow you explore more but is not needed. The town has everything you need. My house is a decent sized apartment (about 80sqm) with three bedrooms, although one which is mine would be out of bounds. There is SKY TV and good internet (WiFi). I am having the garden securely fenced in the next week or so and there will be a large dog pen at the far end so the dogs can be put out in here for a few hours a day. I have no fixed dates but would be looking to head back to Bulgaria around mid May (20th May at latest) until end of August, although I do have a wedding to attend back in the UK mid September so might work well for someone to stay on until late September. So if you worked on around 15th May to end of September. I would likely come back for a few days at the beginning of September and leave the third dog with you and then head back to the UK. What responsibilities will my house sitter have? Keeping house clean - I am not fanatical but with dogs inside does need daily sweeping or hoovering. Watering flowers - mainly window boxes on balcony and have planted a few seeds. Once the fence is done, anyone coming would be welcome to grow some vegetables if they wanted. Walking dogs - need a good long walk at least once a day and can then just go out in their pen for a few hours. Ideally: Landscaping and gardening skills. I have just bought the apartment and it has a fairly large garden out the back. This will shortly be fenced so it is 'dog proof' and there will be a large dog pen in the far corner where they can be put outside for several hours at a time, leaving you free to go off and explore. However, whilst I will probably do a little work in the garden if you were a keen landscaper and gardener you could have free range in the garden! Dog Trainer: I ended up rescuing around 7 dogs and 3 cats back in Bulgaria as there is an awful problem with strays. However, now down to just 3 dogs but none have had much training. They lived outside for first couple of years but now live inside and are house trained. I will be taking one dog with me and the two that would stay are: Jeffrey (4 years old, castrated): Grey hound like dog. Very energetic and very loving but needs basic training (he's ok at sit) so that comes back when called and could let off lead when out and about... Molly (4 years old and sister to Jeffrey, spayed): Like a large sausage dog and VERY nervous, especially of men. I have had both since they were born but think at some stage when I have not been there at my house in Bulgaria and had workmen in, someone has given her a good hiding. She takes ages to come round with strangers but is adoreable and quiet. Again needs basic training and to bring out of her self. It is a first floor 3 bed apartment with lounge, large kitchen, bathroom and toilet. The ground floor basement/cellar is also mine and the dogs have a playroom down there where they can be left as well. The decor is a little dated but all fine and in working order. Lovely views of Alps. There is Wifi and Sky TV. 10 minutes drive from Le Praz in Courchevel ski area where ski lifts are. An hour from Annecy and the lake. Massive area for cycling, walking, hiking, rafting, golf in the summer. Various events on during summer - ski jumping, air show etc. Few English in town but still quite French but you would not be isolated if you did not speak French. And can give you the telephone number of a couple of friends that you can call on if you needed. Single lady preferred or couple. Non-smokers (or you definitely agree to only smoke outside). No children and no cats. Would ask for a 100E deposit for the stay, which will be returned at end of your stay. I have had some trouble in the past with house sitters so would like deposit and references if possible.
