Are dogs allowed on the Treetop Walk in Bad Wildbad?

Are dogs allowed on the Treetop Walk in Bad Wildbad?

Dogs* or animals of any kind are unfortunately not permitted on the trail.

Apart from the hygiene aspect, the safety factor (for animals and humans) plays a major role in the ban on animals on the trail. Most responsible owners keep a close eye on their pet, nevertheless dogs can show unexpected social behaviour towards strangers and also towards their own kind. Moreover, dogs’ fear of heights can trigger flight behaviour. Unfortunately, the reduced path width offers neither retreat nor escape possibilities for animals nor for people with a fear of dogs.

*Exception: companion dogs for the disabled and assistance dogs.
