Quarantine for dog coming from the US?

Hi all,
Every time I tell someone that I'm bringing my dog to live with me in Switzerland (now that I know I'm staying), they say, "Oh, won't she have to be quarantined?". And yet I see nothing on EF about this. I'm guessing it's not necessary, as long as she's current on all her vaccinations, but could someone confirm?

Re: Quarantine for dog coming from the US?

I would be surprised if you need to quarantine your dog. I moved my cat around the world (From USA to Italy to Switzerland) and as long as you are updated with vaccination you should be fine. Talking with my vet he told me that they are very strict only with animal coming from those country where rabies is still widespread. The link that J_T gave you is a great resource. I used it myself when i was moving back to europe.
