Dog tax: how much do you pay ?

Curious to know how much this varies between the cantonal and communal taxes that we pay for dogs.

Here (VD) it's 100 p/dog plus the communal at 100 p/dog, so our 3 come in at 600 p/a now, oh how the days of paying 1.50 at a UK post office seem so far away now.....

Re: Dog tax: how much do you pay ?

In our Gemeinde in SZ there is a base rate for the first dog. Then the total number of dogs in the household is used as a multiplier to determine the final amount.

(Farm dogs are a flat, much reduced rate.)


I have three, so my tax is usually somewhere between CHF 450 and 600.

The amount seems to vary, I have never been able to figure out why. But as the owner of more dogs than is deemed culturally acceptable here I frankly don't want to poke that particular hornet's nest by pushing for an explanation.

I just pay whatever they ask.

We live in a village along the Rhine in Kanton Aargau.

We have 3 dogs and we pay chf 115 per dog. I think that probably covers the cost of the Robi Dog service.

In Winterthur, I pay chf 190/year for my pup. In Belp (near Bern) it was 80.

So it does vary a lot then. I had wondered as I heard other figures from people outside the area and wasn't sure if it was correct.

I think mine will have to start to earn their keep

Yes. It varies a lot and it covers the cost of those little boxes with poop bags - robi dog, bravo, whatever else they are called
