Pet Travel Question: Breed Restrictions to Switzerland?

Name: Jennifer
Number of Pets: 3
Pet Type: One dog, Two cats
Pet Breed: Domestic short hair and Pit bull/Boxer
From: Minnesota
To: Switzerland

Does Switzerland have breed restrictions? I have a Two-year-old pit bull/boxer mix with no docked ears or cropped tail. I also have two domestic short hair cats that would be flying over. Is there a limit on how many pets can be sent at one time?


Hi Jennifer,

Thanks for the question! It looks like Switzerland operates with different rules for different regions/cantons, so you may want to take a look at this resource and double check with the proper authorities. Another important part of this trip has to do with the actual flying process. Be sure to check ahead of time to find a pet-friendly airline and make sure that they will accept pit bull mixes.

For your information, here are the pet import requirements for Switzerland as well. Contact us if you have any more questions, and good luck with your move!
