Proper handling with grazing cattle

Enjoy a carefree dog holiday in Schladming

What do I have to consider when taking my dog on a trip to huts?
  • Please keep quiet in general on alpine pastures
  • Do not frighten grazing animals and do not seek contact with grazing cattle or even try to feed the animals
  • Avoid frantic movements, and especially avoid imitating "cow sounds"
  • Close the gates well after crossing and cross the pasture quickly.
  • As a hiker and mountain biker, please never leave the marked trails.
  • You should always walk past a herd of cattle to the side (30 - 50 meters away), preferably above the herd. Avoid running through the middle of the herd if possible.
  • When grazing animals approach: remain calm, do not turn your back and leave the pasture.
  • Observe the animals without direct eye contact: If you notice that they are restless, leave the pasture or pasture immediately - please do not run away, but rather retreat without taking your eyes off the animals!
  • Take a stick with you when you cross the pastures. Threatening gestures with the stick and loud shouting can make aggressive animals turn back. Strikes and fast, hectic movements such as waving sticks and arms should be avoided.
  • Where entire families of cattle, cows with their calves and maybe even a bull, are on the pasture, special caution is required! With a bull, the pasture or alpine pasture would be avoided! Suckler cows, on the other hand, will always protect and defend their calves due to their natural maternal instinct - just like we humans protect our children. Therefore never come too close to calves or even stroke and feed them.
  • Never tie the leash around your body; the leash or the dog must be able to be released at any time.
