Dog etiquette

Compulsory leash

Dogs must be kept on a lead at Camping Hobby and in the following places:

  • near schools,
  • on public playgrounds,
  • on/near sports fields,
  • at railway stations and on public transport
  • as well as when entering agricultural areas.

Everywhere else, dogs can run free as long as you can control and recall them at any time. If you notice a leashed dog approaching, please also keep your dog on a leash.

Please be considerate of joggers, walkers and children on your path, and call your dog back to you in good time. This is greatly appreciated by all.

Forests and wildlife

There is a wide variety of wildlife in our forests, so you are encouraged to keep your dog under control at all times. Dogs with a strong hunting instinct or those that are difficult to retrieve must be kept on a lead.

From April to June (mating season), dogs must be kept on a leash and are not allowed to leave the path.

»Robidog« poop bags

Free poop bags are provided throughout the region. You will find them attached to the side of the green disposal bins. Please dispose of your dog's droppings in these bags.


Dogs may travel free of charge on the Jungfrau Railway lines. On the ferry and federal railway lines, the purchase of a half-fare card for the dog is required. Don't forget to take enough water with you as it can get hot on summer days. Please never leave your dog in a parked car.
