Dogs in Denmark
Dogs stay free at our Daler campsite.
You don't want stress on holiday. Therefore stick to European rules.
The following points always apply, throughout Europe:
- identification chip
- European pet passport
- valid rabies vaccination
This applies to every dog that wants to enter Denmark:
Dogs under 3 months are not allowed to enter Denmark. Since July 3, 2004, every dog crossing the border needs a European passport and identification by means of a chip is required. At first, a tattoo was also allowed. However, as of 2 July 2011,only a chip is permitted. In addition, your dog must have been vaccinated against rabies.
Prohibition of certain dog breeds:
As of July 1, 2010 the following dog breeds are not allowed: Pitbull Terrier, Tosa Inu, American Staffordshire Terrier, Fila Brasileiro, Dogo Argentino, American Bulldog, Boerboel, Kangal, Central Asian Ovcharka, Caucasian Ovcharka, South Russian Ovcharka, Sarplaninac, Tornyak.
For animals that resemble these breeds, the owner must be able to prove that they do not belong to these breeds (by means of a pedigree). Dogs purchased before March 17, 2010 (including proof) are allowed to enter Denmark if they are on a leash with a maximum length of 2m, wear a muzzle and are not sold in Denmark.
Although the dog can usually be left alone in the caravan or motorhome, it is not a good idea to leave him alone at the beginning of the holiday. The dog may become frustrated as it feels alone in an unfamiliar environment. For example, bring a blanket that the dog knows from home so that he feels comfortable in his new "home".
For the best holiday with your dog, it is a good idea to check the local rules when you go out into nature with your dog."Hund i snor"is Danish for dog on a leash. You see these warnings mainly in forests and along the coast, but you can also find these texts in other places.
Unless otherwise noted, keep your dog on a leash as stray dogs can frighten wildlife (birds). Even a dog on a leash can be scary for children and people who are afraid of dogs, so show respect for others.
Dog-friendly forests and beaches:
In Denmark you will find more than 100 forests where dogs can run free. In the winter months, from October 1 to March 31, you can bring your dog to most beaches, but there are exceptions, so watch the local signs. While dogs are allowed to run freely, you should still be able to control your dog completely.
