Are you going abroad?

  • Take his passport
  • Remember, wearing the chip and registering on the AMICUS database are mandatory
  • Check that your RC is also valid in the country of destination
  • Find out about compulsory vaccines (in principle the rules are the same in the EU but it is better to check with the competent authorities in each country)
  • Find out about the legislation of the country of destination; for example, the wearing of muzzles is compulsory (especially on public transport) or the conditions of transport by car (cage or net are compulsory depending on the country)
  • Your dog is on the list of so-called dangerous dogs, is it allowed in the country of your destination?

Are you going abroad?

Also to think about ...

  • You sleep at the hotel, are dogs allowed?
  • Find out if the chosen destination is "dogfriendly" (hotels, activities, transport, etc.).
  • For Switzerland, find all this information on our DFS map right here!
  • Check that the deworming has been done according to your veterinarian's prescription
  • Depending on the places / countries of destination and times of the year, treat it against parasites (fleas, ticks, mosquitoes)
