So you and your pet are moving to France. That’s excellent news. Whether your precious Fifi is a petite, purse-size poodle or a 60-pound Great American Shelter Dog, les chiens are très chic in France. And, yes, cats are well-loved, too. But for obvious reasons, dogs are more likely to be seen in public where best behavior is a must. So what do the French expect when it comes to petiquette?
Many parts of Lisbon are intensely urban, so your high-rise kitty may be limited to your balcony for ventures into the fresh air. On the other hand, there are plenty of neighborhoods with private homes and leafy backyards where your feline friend can join you to take in the warm sunshine or find a shady spot.
Your dog adores you, we know. And he loves to do anything, and everything, with you. It’s all play to him. But, sometimes, he would really rather play with other dogs. Now that you’re living in Barcelona, where can your dear dog find suitable playmates?
Walking your dog is just one of those things you do as a pet parent. It’s good exercise for both of you, and it’s a wonderful bonding experience, especially if you practice training commands as you do your walk. But your family recently moved to Madrid and you’re overwhelmed with getting organized. New place to live – in a new city, maybe with a new language – and probably a new job as well. Where is all the time going?
Relocating to Germany can be an excellent adventure, for families and their pets. The German people, and most public places, are pet-friendly in a big way. In fact, you can take your dog into all sorts of establishments that you cannot take them in most other countries. And if you wind up living in Munich (or just visiting the city, for that matter), you will really be in pet heaven.
