I am looking for a kennel for my 2 dogs as I'll be staying in a property near Bonnieux at the end of August which doesn't accept pets. I have seen a recommendation for a kennel in Merindol called Complexe Canin la Truffe Noir - does any one have any further recommendations on this kennel or another one close to Bonnieux. Thank you.

Hi -- I'm an experienced animal/property caretaker with excellent references and decent French language skills, looking for a medium-long term caretaking situation in France (beginning anytime after February 7th, 2012). I'd be happy to exchange accommodation for services, depending on the amount of work involved. I'm 50, extremely fit (non-smoker, non-drinker), financially secure, good at basic DIY, and an animal lover. I'm a writer, looking for a relatively quiet place to work on a novel. But I'm also hoping to improve my French, so a living situation which isn't too remote or isolated would be great. I'm Irish, own a home in Dublin, and can provide police references as well as a spotless driving record. Thanks! Caroline

Does anyone know of any dog parks near Carpentras/Avignon? We have lots of lovely places to walk but would like also our young Jack Russell to socialize with other dogs. Also, we are going to UK for a few days soon and would like to know anyone's opinions on dog kennels in the Carpentras/Avignon area and if anyone can recommend one. She is used to spending all her time with us so we are worried about leaving her for the first time. Adele

Rognes, edge of woods, circ Caire val, Bouches du Rhone- Found wandering and confused outside property in snow last night- Black female labrador- friendly -healthy- have been to police but ID details may be out of date as registered miles away as 'Dora'. ( tatoo on ear) And we have not heard back from them. A long shot but has anyone lost her? We are keeping her overnight but cant keep her as we are caretakers with a guard dog , so not our property. She may have to go to a facilty in Salon tomorrow.So just desperate to find her owners...

There is a large Burmese shaped hole in our lives since we lost ours. Good home in the country side, happy to re-home older cat, but it just has to be Burmese.

Hello All,We are looking for a person to come and sit with our dogs. We live in St. Antonin Du Var and are hoping someone would be available from Friday lunchtime 23rd Sept. untill about 6.00pm the following day. (To be confirmed) The dogs have plenty of room in the garden and would have been walked in the morning so it really is just a case of overseeing them and ensuring they were fed, watered. They can obviously be left for a short time if you need to go out.Many ThanksSarah

I am available to care for your dog for the times you have to go away. I have had dogs all my life until the present time, where I find myself dog-free. The garden is "dog proof" and lots of walks and cuddles are guaranteed. I am situated at Montagnac, in Alpes de Haute Provence. which is around 5km from Ste Croix and the lake.Brenda

Can anyone recommend a really great equine chiropractor in the Var/Provence area please? Failing that, a physio or an osteopath. Must specialise in horses though. Please send replies by PM in accordance with forum rules. Thanks very much!! RegardsJj

Could anyone help me find a Cat refuge in the Plan De La tour area,I work at a house (Holiday rental .For the last three months there has been Three stray kittens whom up till now have been kindly fed by guests and the owners whilst on holiday. The problem we have now is that the house will be closed up for the winter and there will be no one to feed them.I have tried to catch them but they are not used to human contact! I think they are approx 4/5 months old. I would need someone to come catch them and find a home for them.I would love to have them but i already have two rescued cats and a dog. Any ideas welcome!
