Vienna about to ban Schutzhund Sport

Hi everybody,

It was in the news recently that Vienna wants to ban Schutzhund Sport completely for private owners. If they get through with this it is only a matter of time until it swaps over to Germany.

If anyone of you can read German. Here is the article
Wien verbietet Scharfmachen von Hunden - Wien - ? Panorama

Oh and here is a statement from the Austrian German Shepherd Club
Stellungnahme Schutzdienstverbot in Wien

The president of OEKV sent an email and calls every Schutzhund friend to take action to protest against that new law but I am not sure if I can post the emailadress of the Vienna Mayor without getting into trouble

I really really hope they will not get through with this.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------. Sima: Animals with protection dog education similarly a weapon - ÖVP criticized bill all owners of so-called battle dogs must graduate in Vienna as of 1 July a Hundeführschein. The corresponding law brings however even further intensification. So also the protection dog education - therefore the Scharfmachen of a quadruped - will be forbidden in the federal capital in the future. "In the hands is more private a so trained dog similar a weapon, what to dangerous situations lead can", established environment city advice Ulli Sima the measure on Tuesday.
With taking effect of the new law, there is the protection dog education then only more at the police and the federal army, so Sima in a from shipment. Support comes at the same time of the veterinarian chamber. According to Walter woodman, president of the chamber, a protection dog education is momentary in as good as every dog education site possible. This has nothing to seek with private animal owners however, said he. Let such a ban be an Austrian novelty and as such extremely welcome.
Hundeführschein as of 1 July in power
The law to the introduction of the Hundeführscheins stood on Tuesday on the order of the day of the environment committee. The ÖVP rejected the design, that is supposed to be sanctioned on the 26th of March in the State Parliament,. Deficiencies wise not only coarse the draft the SPÖ up, moreover the examination procedure had gone around become. It could not be that the opposition a so unausgegorenes law would be flung after the motto "Friss or stirb", although the accompanying ordinance text would not exist yet once, criticized VP environment speaker novel Stiftner via from shipment.
The Hundeführscheinpflicht becomes on the 1st of July effective. The test is discarded become within the months first three from bearing start. Viennese, that hold already now a battle dog, will have as of July a year long time. If animal owners are caught without lead certificate, it sets administration punishments. In addition the dog can in danger situations on occasion of the police immediately and durably decreased become. (APA)
