Re: Rottweiler in valais

germanguy, while Neuchatel canton may not ban the breed it would possibly be a long way for you to commute to/from work every day depending on exactly where you're going to be in Valais canton.

I would contact the Vaud cantonal veterinary office and find out what requirements are needed. Vaud is much nearer to Valais as regards commuting.

As a dog owner here you will be required to the the mandatory SKN theory and practical course and there may be other requirements for courses on top, but the veterinary office can inform you about these.

Another question: does your dog have a docked tail or cropped ears? You will be able to bring him over, but need to also contact Swiss Customs.

"1) Is it actually still possible to bring cropped or docked dogs into Switzerland?

It is forbidden to import dogs that have been docked. Docked dogs are therefore turned back at the border. Owners resident abroad, however, may bring their docked dogs into Switzerland for holidays or other short stays. Also anyone who moves to Switzerland from abroad may bring their docked dogs with them. It is absolutely essential that you ask the customs office in good time before you move whether the criteria are met in your case, so that your dog is considered part of your so-called household effects (http://www.ezv.admin.ch). The dog must not be advertised, sold or given away in Switzerland."
