You’ve moved to Luxembourg with your pet, or have decided to add to your family with a furry friend… now what? Here is City Savvy’s guide to Luxembourg pet etiquette, where to find a veterinarian, what to do with your pet when you go on holiday and how to groom or train that bouncy puppy.
What to do in an Emergency
You can call 112 in an emergency to find the name and address of duty veternarians. You can find a list of emergency and on duty veterinarians here.
Finding a Veterinarian
Most vets speak excellent English in Luxembourg. Whilst the best is always a personal recommendation, sometimes this isn’t possible so for a complete list of veterinarians please click here. If you’re looking for a vet to visit you at home, we highly recommend using vetathome.lu
When you take your dog out for a walk you should clean up its poop yourself. Bags for dog poop are available from around 250 distribution points in the city. They are also available at Tourist Offices, the Bierger Centre and recycling centres. In addition, there are designated dog pooping areas within the city that are regularly cleaned.
Dogs should be kept on a leash in built up areas, public carparks, public transport and sports grounds.
A professional pet care service operating in Luxembourg. They offer year-round dog walking, pet sitting and in-home dog boarding.
A site that connects dog lovers with dog owners for dog walking, pet sitting and more. You can search for available dog walkers and book directly through the site.
If you can find someone who loves dogs more than Naomi, we will eat your dog leash. As a professional dog breeder, and a mother and brother who both work with dogs, she comes from a long line of those besotted with our four legged friends. She also shows her own regal purebreds at the world’s greatest dog show, Crufts.
Posh Paws is the newest dog groomer on the scene in Luxembourg so you’d better get in now while you can because as people find out that she is both flexible with her opening times and also washes your fur baby with the most gorgeous products that smell out of this world, getting a coveted appointment for Spot is going to get a whole lot more difficult. Now, thanks to Posh Paws, your pooch can roll around in mud to his heart’s content because Naomi will wave her magic wand, send you home with a clean dog and your family/ car/ furniture will thank you.
