We found that this instruction from the authorities of City of Zurich is very helpful and to the point. Please read it and follow: 

Stick to these rules until you get different information from the veterinary office: 

  • Always keep your dog on a short leash, it must not run free.  

  • Your dog must not have any contact with other animals or people other than you or people in the same household.
