No matter if in summer or in winter, the hiking paradise Alpe di Siusi and Sciliar offers plenty of easy but also demanding hikes, which become a special experience also with your dog.
If you move in the vicinity of cattle herds it is of particular importance to walk your dog on a lead, no matter how well-behaved your four-legged friend is. Normally cows feel threatened by dogs. If the dog moreover runs free or barks at them, the defence instinct of the normally quite friendly animals is triggered and an unwelcome and also dangerous incident might occur.
Please remember to take enough water for your dog with you and to scoop the poop of your four-legged friend. For potential cable car rides you need also a muzzle.
