Re: Irresponsible dog owner

Curiously, what are the dog laws here in CH in regard to a leash? Do they really have to be kept on a leash at all times while outside?

I ask that, in part, because a neighbor friend of mine often plays fetch with his dog in the soccer field next to our house. And I often see people with their dogs at the lake, allowing the dogs to swim, etc. None of that bothers me at all, I'm just curious what the laws actually are, I guess.

Dogs are to be kept within sight at a short distance in forests and at the edges of the forest as well as outdoors in the dark (Section 9 (2) HuG / ZH). Dogs are forbidden in cemeteries, in bathing establishments, on the break areas of school buildings, on playgrounds or sports fields as well as in places that have been signaled accordingly by the responsible authorities ( 10 HuG / ZH).

A general leash obligation applies in publicly accessible buildings, on busy streets, in public transport, at train stations and bus stops as well as in appropriately signposted places ( 11 HuG / ZH). In addition, dogs must be kept on a leash in publicly accessible areas if they are in heat, biting or have an infectious disease (Section 11 (2) HuG / ZH). For vicious dogs, there is also an obligation to wear a muzzle (Section 12 HuG / ZH).
