Dog keeping registration

Every dog owner is obliged to register his dog.

The obligation to notify is regulated in detail in the respective municipal statutes. This provides for a notification requirement on a regular basis,

  • if the dog is older than three or four months,
  • in the event of a new acquisition of a dog or migration with a dog,
  • care or custody of a dog for a period of more than two or three months.

In addition, a separate registration in the dog register is necessary, which is not carried out by the competent authority.
