Yes, on April 16, 2020 the Swiss government made changes, but it is still forbidden to operate dog schools.
I informed on my website, through social media, and I wrote to my clients, that all dog training, including one-on-one training, is not allowed. Excepted is one-on-one therapy training for dogs with behavior disorders, if mandated by a Veterinary Office.
Let’s put aside that I could go to jail for up to 3 years or to be fined with thousands of Swiss francs. What makes me very sad, is that some people want me to put myself into danger!
I know there are people thinking #COVID-19 is harmless, and that all the measures are disproportionate. Well, I don’t. I am afraid, and I #stayhome
If there are dog trainers making money right now other than online, they are not only acting illegal, and irresponsible, but they are also acting unfair to those who stick to the law. I deeply hope that those will not ask the state for financial support and thus will take advantage by double cashing.
I hoped to support those of you new puppy owners with my how-to videos. If you have any burning questions, please feel free to give me a call, and we can decide the best way go ahead.
As soon as I receive different information by the Veterinary Office I will let you know. Thank you for your understanding.
