Re: Imigrating with a Bull-Terrier

Welcome to the forum.

What you read probably refers to the importation of cropped and docked dogs.

"Cropping of the ears means clipping the ear to a given shape. It has been banned since 1 July 1981. Docking of the tail means shortening the tail by removing caudal vertebrae together with surrounding soft tissue. It has been banned since 1 July 1997. The importing of cropped or docked dogs is also prohibited.

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

Cropped or docked dogs may not be imported into Switzerland. Such dogs are therefore turned back at the border. However, owners resident abroad may bring their cropped or docked dogs into Switzerland for holidays or other short stays, and anyone moving to Switzerland from abroad may bring such dogs with them. Ask the customs office whether your case meets the criteria in good time before moving, to ensure that your dog is considered part of your “household effects” (http://www.ezv.admin.ch). The dog must not be advertised, sold or given away, or exhibited at a show in Switzerland."

See the link at the bottom of this page for the full info.

Use this link to see what you need to do to be able to bring your dog with you.

Bear in mind that it's sometimes difficult to find accommodation that allows dogs and may be even more so with that breed.

Check with the cantonal veterinary office where you will be living about any special requirements they may have.
