Hiking with your dog

Even our 4-pawed friends can enjoy their wow-moment in this area and, depending on their physical condition, look forward to beautiful walks along a variety of hiking routes at all altitudes throughout the Pustertal valley. In order to spend carefree outdoor activities with your dog, we ask you to keep some important tips in mind:

 

  • In Italy, leashes are mandatory throughout the country; in South Tyrol, it is also compulsory for dogs to wear a muzzle on all public transport (including lifts).
  • Inform yourself about weather conditions and the state of the trails to ensure that the tour is not too exhausting for your faithful companion.
  • Beware of pastures! Make sure that cows with calves do not feel threatened by your dog and thus become a danger to both of you.

Last but not least, the much-loved topic of dog excrement: In Italy, it is compulsory to collect the excrements of your dog along the paths in appropriate bags and dump it in the nearest bin.
