Bad news:

Your Rottie is banned in Valais.

Der Staatsrat erlässt eine Liste von Hunderassen und deren Kreuzungen, die im Wallis verboten sind (Art. 37 Abs. 2 AGTSchG/VS). Auf der Liste sind derzeit verzeichnet: Pitbull-Terrier, American Staffordshire-Terrier, Staffordshire-Bullterrier, Bullterrier, Dobermann, Dogue Argentin, Fila Brasileiro, Rottweiler, Mastiff, Matin Espangnol, Matin Napolitain, Tosa.


The State shall adopt a list of breeds and crossbreeds that have been banned in Valais (Art. 37 para. 2 AGTSchG / VS). On the list are currently: Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Bull Terrier, Doberman Dogue Argentin, Fila Brasileiro, Rottweiler, Mastiff, Spanish Mastiff, Neapolitan Mastiff, Tosa.


The period where resident dogs of these breeds were allowed to stay if they passed the tests has long since passed.

More from the Valais website:


Do not under any circumstances move to Valais with your dog.

Valais was one of the worst cantons during the post-Oberglatt hysteria, euthanizing some 10% of the resident listed breed dogs who were made to stand the tests at that time

Your dog is your responsibility, for his natural lifetime. Valais is not possible, so you need to find a solution - which likely menas that you will need to move to one of cantons where your dog is allowed.

You can find a summary of each canton's dog law here:
