A woman was killed at a dog training centre in western Switzerland after her pet dog attacked her inside a training pen.

The 45-year-old woman was found dead at a dog training centre in Auboranges, near the city of Lausanne in Switzerland on Tuesday.

Her Malinois-breed pet was seen standing over her body and was described as being 'visibly aggressive'.

The pet first blocked police officers and others from approaching the woman before going on the attack again.

Police said the dog attacked and mauled a female police officer. It was then shot dead.


Swiss authorities have today confirmed that the woman bled to death due to the injuries caused by the dog.

The authorities announced that the autopsy had shown she had suffered multiple serious wounds to her arms.

Investigations are ongoing into the circumstances around the attack.
