Rules that dog-owners must abide by
To enjoy a perfect holiday in Schenna with your dog, there are inevitably a few important rules that you need to follow. A valid EU pet passport is required, showing that your dog is vaccinated against rabies. The certificate must also show that vaccination took place at least 21 days prior to arrival and does not exceed 12 months. Furthermore, each dog needs a microchip for individual identification.
For dogs registered before 3 July 2011, a clearly legible tattoo is sufficient. Puppies less than three months old and without anti-rabies vaccination are not allowed into Italy.
When required, dogs must be kept on a leash with a muzzle must always at hand if needed.
in Italy, as elsewhere, dog owners are obliged to properly dispose of their doggie poo. In Schenna, this is made easier thanks to the ubiquitous ROBIDOG dog waste disposal bins.
