Vacation with dog

Dear dog-lovers,
We are delighted that your four-legged friend is joining you on your trip to our Dolomites Region, and wish you the very warmest of welcomes. The Seiser Alm is a nature reserve, a protected area and a part of the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage. The villages of the area are located amidst woodland which is home to a wealth of flora and fauna, that’s why we kindly ask you to lead your dog on a leash at all times.

In order to ensure a pleasant stay, please observe the following rules:

  1. Leash laws require dogs to be kept on a leash no longer than 1,5 metre in length.
  2. Dogs can travel on the Seiser Alm Cable Car and all lifts free of charge (with a lead and muzzle for safety reasons).
  3. A ticket must be bought for dogs travelling on public transport, and free of charge on shuttle buses for the Seiser Alm Cable Car. Leads and muzzles are compulsory. Guide dogs for the disabled travel for free.
  4. Numerous dog-toilet stations provide plastic dog bags to dispose of your dog’s waste. It is compulsory to carry a supply with you and to dispose of the waste as soon as possible in a trash bin. It’s prohibited to dispose of the bags outdoors anywhere else.
  5. Please pick up after your dog, especially around the meadowlands. These meadows are used by farmers for the cultivation of foodstuffs and fodder. Fodder contaminated with dog waste may lead to miscarriage in cattle.
  6. Dogs are not permitted in a number of areas, including children’s play parks, school playgrounds and cemeteries. These areas are signposted accordingly.
  7. In the Winter months there are numerous walking trails. Please be careful not to stray onto cross-country skiing tracks with your dog, as they are reserved for skiers.
  8. Please meet the cattle with special caution. Go in between cattle and dog, leading your dog the opposite side. Don’t run, the animals react to fast movements! Pass them calmly while keeping an eye on them. Should the animal come at you aggressively, unleash your dog so he can bring himself to safety faster. The cattle will be distracted and you’ll be able to leave the dangerous zone calmly and fast paced.
