Highly recommended for all dog owners who want to be up-to-date

Since September 1, 2008 the Federal Animal Welfare Ordinance regulated: If you have never owned a dog (registered on your name in the ANIS passport), you have to complete a mandatory dog ownership class – “theoretischer Sachkundenachweis (SKN)” – BEFORE you buy a dog.
(TSchV Art. 68, Abs. 1)

From January 1, 2017 the Theory class is not mandatory anymore. I continue to offer the theory class on a voluntary basis.

Customer reviews

  • «Though our family owned dogs for many years, I was obliged to do the SKN Theory class for my first (official) dog. First I thought - how stupid is this... But I soon came to realize, that there are many things for me to learn. I will do many things with my dog differently in the future.Thank you so much, Claudia!»
