Hi all, I have recently left Lisbon after living there for two years. I aim to return to Portugal in two years and hope to train and break horses either as a business or as an employee. I have heard that in the near future horse racing may be allowed in Portugal and as I am working towards my trainers licence here in Australia I am definitely eager to establish myself as a reputable trainer if and when the racing industry gets off the ground in Portugal. I know there is some opposition to the horse racing industry in Portugal(mainly from the casino lobby) but my personal opinion is that horse racing in Portugal will not only create jobs but also boost tourism from the growing market of China and the established English and Brazillian tourism market. I would love to hear from anyone who may be involved in trying to establish the industry in Portugal.

Hello, does anyone know of someone who would like to adopt a dog? They would need to have outdoor space and be in a calm environment with people who have time to spend with him. The dog was rescued a few years ago and is in a loving home but the owners cannot keep him anymore. They don't want to give him to a home where he would not happy. Please contact me for more details. Many thanks

Hi there,I am travelling this year (female, over 30, non-smoker, friendly), also cat sitting (usually rather longterm, so can provide good references and obviously experience, if needs to be shown) and wanted to make it to Lisbon (for the city and some language learning). Now, I am currently asking around privately, too, as many people prefer recommending cat/pet sitters in person rather than through unknown sources.I would love to hear, if there is anyone/if anyone knows of someone with plans to travel/needs to be abroad for some time, who lives in Lisbon and would like a live-in sitter for the time they are gone. Money aspects are "secondary", so should be a better deal than catteries or professional companies (sitters) by far - and better for the animals, because they stay in their usual homes...Please feel free to tell someone interested about my posting here and get in touch (I suppose that should be possible over the profile, somehow...?).Looking forward to any ideas/contacts!

Hello everyone!! Me, my wife and our dog (dachshund) are moving to Lisbon end of year!! Our little furry friend is excited about the move, but I am worried it is gonna be a big adaptation for us ( dog's are differently received in Portugal then in Germany). Who knows about good dog walkers or places where we put him when we are gone for the day? Any other tips concerning dogs? Nice parks? Good shops!? I like to hear it all! Thank you very much!!!

Last month we decided to purchase 2 Seresto collars for our dogs because our usual flea/tick/mozzie/fly drops were no longer working. After walking our dogs tonight and while brushing, we saw several fleas and tried to catch them. Seresto's initial cost for 2 medium size dogs wasn't cheap, and we were hoping that the 8 month term of the collar would make it a great way to control pests on the dogs while saving money in the long run. Now we don't know what to do.Is anyone else having a problem controlling fleas on their pets? Has anyone found a better solution?
