Quarantine period on Puppies coming into Switzerland?

Do you know if Switzerland has a quarantine period on live animals coming into their country?

Does it depend on many factors like breed / age etc?

Thanks

Re: Quarantine period on Puppies coming into Switz

As far as I know, only Iceland and Australia have quarantine for dogs coming to the countries.
But of course, the dog who is coming to Swiss needs to have his papers and vacations right, you should get all info here.

Re: Quarantine period on Puppies coming into Switz

AS long as you dog has the relevant jabs there are no requirements as far as I know. In fact picking up my dog was almost the same as picking up some unaccompanied luggage....!

Just don't drug your dog when shipping.... IMO

Re: Quarantine period on Puppies coming into Switz

As you mentioned puppies rather than adult dogs - I just to want to emphasize this from the BVet link given by temiatwork:

In the case of puppies too young to have completed the vaccination course and eligibility period:

"Animals aged less than three months may only be imported into Switzerland from the EU unvacci-
nated if they are accompanied by and dependent upon their mothers or if a veterinary certificate can be
provided showing that they have been kept at the place where they were born since birth and have
never come into contact with wild animals which could have been exposed to an infection with rabies. "

If the dog you are importing is fully vaccinated according to the BVet requirements, this of course does not apply.

Also, please bear in mind that under the new Tierschutzgesetz you are required to complete the theory course before acquiring a dog if you are a first time dog owner. So, if that applies to you, best to get that out of the way well in advance of bringing your puppy home.

And, don't forget the practical course requirement - you and your puppy have to complete that within the first year of ownership.

Wishing you and your new pup all the best.
