We look after your four-legged friend during the day and go for extensive walks with him. During lunch time we are in our comfortably equipped dog lounge. There the fur noses come to rest and mostly sleep. We will pick up your best friend from your home and bring him back there again after our 2nd walk in the afternoon. Satisfied and busy, he will be happy to see you at the end of your working day.

  • Children at an age of 12 years

You would like to spend time with dogs, maybe do you even plan to buy a dog for yourself soon? Or do you just want to watch a dog sitter at work or learn how to walk with more than one dog? Then the walking with us is the right thing for you. Accompany us on a morning walk and learn from a professional dog sitter and trainer! I will explain everything about the different dog breeds to you. You get an insight into my day-to-day routine and also learn something about dog training.

This walk is only for people who want to join us WITHOUT a dog. Unfortunately we cannot let other dogs go with us, because you would concentrate too hard on your four-legged friend.

Holiday Care

Individual Dates

Overnight Stays

Suitable for

Unfortunately I do not offer holiday care as I am actively involved in a dogschool, but my customers are looked after very competently and lovingly by my specially selected partners during the holidays. I always make myself a picture of them on site and know them very well.

About Us

  • Prevent A Bite Campaign Canton of Zurich

I grew up with dogs since I was a child and have always appreciated them as friends, family members and even teachers about life. So far, I have been able to raise five dogs and have loved watching their development. I would like to share my knowledge about dogs with you. Therefore, Rudelhunde stands for conscientious working with dogs and the full care of your loved dog. Taking care of them and providing them with a second home when you are at work, that's what I stand for. On top of that, your four-legged friend is also learning during our day and he and you as the owner will benefit from staying with us.

Hi, my name is Lucky (actually Sir Lucky) and I am probably the most important and hard-working staff member. Every day I sacrifice myself for my pack, walk with them every walk and I am there for everyone. We play together, move a lot and at noon I finally get some rest with the other before I can play again in the afternoon. Sometimes I try to behave like a class clown, but most of the time I get caught by Jennifer and then I must behave again well. I enjoy my work very much and I found my dream job within Rudelhunde.

Why Rudelhunde?

❤ We are registered with the Veterinary department and we constantly visit seminars to educate ourselves.

❤ Each dog has its own box in the car and also in the dog lounge every dog has enough space to relax.


❤ We do not support bullying of dogs and we let all dogs play under controlled supervision.


❤ The optimal care of the dogs is in the foreground. Therefore, we only care for a maximum of 5-7 dogs per person depending on the knowledge and behavior of the group.


❤ We are trained in handling dogs in groups. At the same time we give every dog ​​a lot of attention and love.


❤ We avoid the typical dog-sitter places and have found an environment for us in which we can focus all our attention on your darling.


❤ In our dog lounge, after an active walk, we take care that every dog can rest after an active morning walk before we go out for a second walk.


❤ Smaller groups allow us to keep shuttle times short, so your pet does not have to spend too much time in the car and has more of the day.


❤ We create transparency on our social media (Instagram & Facebook). There you can follow our daily routine and watch us at our work.
