  • Care of dog in manado concerns

    Ok we are bringing our midsize dog with us to manado (other wise wife wont come lol) . Me big concern if there is any place in manado safe to board a dog for 2 to 4 weeks. We have parents in the states that r in their 80s . If we need to go to the states if anything happens to anyone , we would need to leave dog in manado. So choices are to find someone to take care of him at our house or board him. Any help?

    I don't think that finding dog-friendly domestic staff in Manado will be all that difficult. Now if you don't plan on having a maid, jaga, or any other help, you may have more concerns to think about than finding a potential dog-sitter.

        If you don't need a maid, don't get one. Plenty of expats go without them.

        I'd watch your dogs, certainly. I've heard some folks find them quite delicious.

          I think part of the deal for getting a retirement visa is that you agree to employ an Indonesian. Household staff is the obvious way to fulfill this requirement. (But I'm no expert on the matter - someone can correct me if I'm wrong.)

            You are right! Part of retirement visa is signing a contract with goverment that we hire household help. (great law , my wife says)

              Only problem with eating our dog jaime, is that it would be your last meal

                I applaud you for exploring all the contingencies, but with the likely prospect of having household staff comfortable with your dog, and more importantly that the dog is comfortable with, exploring kennel options is probably one option too far.

                While there are exceptions, boarding a dog for any length of time is risky and could even be a death sentence for you pet. (I bet you already know that.) Best to leave your dog in the care of staff you have selected for just such a contingency, or following Jaime's lead, make like-mined friends in Monado who would be willing to trade off pet-setting occasions with you.

                  Dog is an accepted protein in parts of Indonesia. Atlantis has said that it's a bit of a delicacy in Manado. If you are stating that you would kill someone who did this to you, then I'd say you may want to rethink your decision to bring the dog with you.

                  I have not eaten cats, dogs or similar in my lifetime. I hope to never do so. Indonesia is not the US though. There are no dog catchers, pounds or the like that I know of. If your dog gets out, it may be someone's dinner.

                    I suppose anything is possible, but that suggestion that loose pets end up as dinner in Monado seems to be a chapter from Chandler's classic, The Remarkable Story of Chicken Little. It is likely needlessly alarming for potential retirees with dogs.

                      Oh, you're right. No one has ever eaten, poisoned, or stolen a dog in Indonesia.

                        Superlatives do not usually comport with reality. There are probably more Forum members prone to hyperbole than dog eaters in Monado.

                        Of course I could be wrong, but let's not scare the children.

                          Jamie I asumed you comment about eating the dog was tongue in cheek ,as was mine, if you took it wrong, im sorry. I fully understand the dogs well being is in my hands and yes dogs can dissapear . But bosco (our dog) stays by ourside alwas or is in the house. our big problem is we have to much time thinking about possiablites for our own good. Im sure any one who will be working in our home will love and care for the dog well.

                            Oh also the eating of dogs and cats (and other things) are part of the culture of the area and though I dont think we will particapate in it, we do respect it.
