Zurich want to courses Dog – duty is also to apply for Small

The voting citizens and voters, citizens of the Canton of Zurich to continue a Course requirement for holders of large dogs. In the meantime, counts down to Zurich all the districts, and nearly 70 percent of the voting public say no to the new dog law that would have provided no more compulsory courses. In Zurich, the is a Yes vote-share so far, even well below 30 percent.

Now, the government wants to expand the Course requirement to all dog owners. The health Director Thomas Heiniger (FDP) said in front of the media. The new regime will be less complicated and expensive than the previous: in the Future, all you want to take indoor, and holder of six practical lessons with their dogs; for the First holder, in addition, two lessons will be theory required. This is significantly less than in the past; at the Moment, up to 20 lessons are mandatory. Heiniger said he'll take the result of the vote is with great pleasure to note that the courses are useful, the feedback is positive: "Even the dogs would have voted no."

Civil have no joy

Heinigers party, the FDP, showed, however, disappointed in the liberal party to use against "useless rules". Dissatisfied with also the CVP. The abolition of the rates would have relieved the municipalities, she writes, now they have to further ensure that the Dog visited the owners and holders of the prescribed courses. The SVP writes, the no open the no the door to a further over-regulation: the Course will be extended for a dog owner.

The EPP sees itself confirmed. The bourgeois parties were shot "far beyond that" and have received a very clear receipt. The population have voted for the retention of the security. Also a possible enhanced rate of duty would examine the party favorably. Similarly, the SP: Now must be considered a simplification of the course is mandatory and a quality control for the provider.

Only the rain village says Yes

The verdict of the voting public is not very clear: In many municipalities, 30 percent, came together once more Yes votes. For the new law voted by rain mountain is only a single municipality, but with a clear 71 percent Yes. In the social media, this individual was already held for the alleged error. The municipality has confirmed the result, but compared to the statistical office. The Yes and no votes had been reversed, in the rain, the mountain there are simply many dog owners.

And so the previous conclusion from the results from the districts of:

am: 70.2 percent no Andelfingen: 67.4 percent no Bülach: 69.5 percent no Dielsdorf: 68.9% no Dietikon: 66.7% no Hinwil: 69.5 percent no show: 69% miles: 66.7% no Pfäffikon: 70.5% no type: 69.8 percent no Winterthur: , which was 70.1 percent no.


ten years Ago, a tragic event sent shockwaves through the policy. After 2005, a children gärtler was devoured in oberglatt of three pit bulls that responded to the Confederation and the Canton. In the Canton of Zurich, the policy led, among other things, the rate of duty for holders of large and massive dog breeds. At the Federal level, a mandatory theory has a prescribed course, which was abolished by 2017. Also the Zurich Canton of politicians were of the opinion that the dog law needs to be revised. While the Council wanted to shorten the education courses, continued in the cantonal Parliament, the civil majority, and stroke, the rate of duty equal to the whole of the law.

in Contrast, members of the losing factions have submitted to the cantonal Parliament referendum. SP, Green, AL, GLP, PPE, BDP and EDU did not want to keep the dog courses, they wanted to extend to all dog owners. The parties were on the point of view, it cannot be assumed that all of the holder besässen enough self-responsibility. Unlike the course, opponents claimed, was the number of Beissvorfälle back.

The crux with statistics

The rate enemies are the bourgeois parties, the SVP, FDP and CVP. You doubt the Benefits of the courses. The number of Beissvorfälle had not fallen, they argued. Responsible holder attended the courses voluntarily, the other not even with a training obligation to the reason. The arguments of the Bourgeois do not seem to be in the voting population, but have caught up.

In the Interpretation of the Beissstatistik supporters and opponents were divided. The Problem: The Figures vary, clear statements are hardly possible. The number of serious Beissvorfälle with Injury is 60 to 80 per year, according to the veterinary office to low. Nevertheless, a survey showed that the public feel due to the rate of duty safer.

Strictly dog law of Switzerland

Since the voting population is projected to be the new dog law, rejects, remains, Zurich, the Canton with the most stringent dog law throughout the country. In no other Canton there is a Training requirement for large and massive dogs. In ten cantons, some breeds require authorisation. Breed bans know in addition to Zurich, Geneva, Freiburg, and the Valais, but not in all cantons the same dog breeds are affected. (Tages-Anzeiger)
