AMICUS Registration

The Importance of AMICUS Registration in Switzerland: Benefits for Dog Owners and the Community

.html5-video-container video::-webkit-media-controls { display: none !important; }
In Switzerland, owning a dog comes with certain responsibilities. One of them is registering your pet with the AMICUS. It is a big national database of dogs that provides a variety of benefits for the owner and the community as a whole.

What is AMICUS in simple words?

Important and mandatory process in Switzerland. Upon completion of that procedure the owner gets a unique identification number for your pet, which is then linked to your contact information and medical records. All is stored in its own database, which can be accessed by veterinary clinics, animal shelters, and other relevant authorities.

It is important to note that registration must be completed within 3 months of acquiring a dog or moving to the country with a pet. Otherwise it can result in fines or legal consequences.

What are the benefits of registering with AMICUS?

First and foremost, it ensures that your dog can be identified in case it gets lost or stolen. The unique identification number linked to your contact information allows authorities and shelters to quickly and easily locate you if your pet is found.

Additionally, the AMICUS registry serves as a way to monitor populations and track diseases. Thereby authorities can identify areas where there may be an overpopulation or where certain diseases are more prevalent. This info can then be used to develop targeted programs to address these issues.

What do you need for registering your dog?

The AMICUS registry in Switzerland requires following a few important steps:

  • microchipping;
  • registering with a recognized dog breeder organization;
  • obtaining a pedigree certificate;
  • submitting an application to the registry;
  • paying the fee.
