It just occurred to me that it's probably difficult for folks in the Romandie and Ticino to find information on the federal mandatory dog ownership courses when searching EF because most of what is written on the subject is German-centered.
So a question for those in the Romandie and Ticino: How are the two classes refered to in everyday discussion in your areas?
Here on the German speaking side of the Rostigraben, we abbreviate the Sachkundenachweis
as SKN - hence all the posts referring to the courses that way.
(Few would ever say 'Sachkundenachweis
' here when speaking casually about the courses, but SKN falls trippingly off the tongue.
In French the courses are 'formation obligatoire (theoretic/pratique) pour les propriétaires de chiens'
, in Italian it is 'Formazione (teorico/pratico) per i detentori di cani'
... but is an abbreviation or simpler term generally used in everyday discussion to refer to the courses, as we do in the German speaking areas?
If so, I'll try to go back and edit some of the more informative posts to include the French and Italian.
