The regulations about dogs and cats are rather strict with vaccinations, controls etc.
Actually the only vaccination requirement is for importation into Switzerland. A dog born in Switzerland is not required to be vaccinated at all, nor is an owner required to continue vaccinating once the dog has been correctly imported.

That said, as I understand it, compliance with vaccination recommendations is fairly high here.

Re: Dogs in childrens' playgrounds

I believe there is a much bigger problem with cat and fox poo. Not much we can do about fox poo as they are wild animals. However there should be same regulations as dog owners for cat owners. We have cat poo in our flower beds, in the garden, on the pathway. In fact everywhere as it isn't picked up. And it can be full of bacteria which if dogs eat causes giardia as my gross dog well knows! When I go out with my dog now I pick up any cat poo I come across as well, which is at least 5 bags a day at the moment. It gets on my nerves!

Re: Dogs in childrens' playgrounds

Must say I've never had a cat that didn't bury its poo or pooed on pavements/hard surfaces (and I've had many).

Re: Dogs in childrens' playgrounds

Threads like this worry me, and they soon devolve into discussions (arguments?) based on what posters want the situation to be. Whatever side of the fence one sits on, that isn't particularly helpful... but understanding what the various laws actually say is.

Toward that end, go first to the Tier Im Recht website for a summary of all the 26 cantonal laws. For more information click on the link at the top of each canton's page for the text of the law.

http://www.tierimrecht.org/de/tiersc...echt/index.php


Then go to your Gemeinde website or to your Gemeinde animal control or Einwohnerkontrolle office to learn about local regs.


Federal law is mostly found in the Tierschutzgesetz, Tierschutzverordnung SR. 455, but many other laws regulate the treatment of animals. A good summary can be found in the 'Tierschutzgesetz Wegweiser, here:

http://www.tierschutz.com/publikatio...iser_tschg.pdf

Another good user-friendly source is the BLV site Mein Heimtier. The BLV is the department responsible for animal issues.
