Sleeping place: please do not let your dog sleep on the couch or in the bed.
Poop bag: Help to keep the Katschberg clean and remember to always carry a poop bag with you
Grazing animals: Do not get too close to grazing animals with your dog and always leash your furry nose near cows and horses.

What must be considered when entering Austria with a dog?
It is best to contact your veterinarian before you start your trip to clarify any documents or vaccinations that may be required. When crossing the border, you should have a valid EU pet passport and a valid rabies vaccination. During your stay in Austria, depending on the municipality, a leash and muzzle must also be carried and put on if necessary. Furthermore, we recommend a dog liability insurance and a first aid package for all cases.
