If you are a dog owner in Germany, it might be a crime in the future if you do not walk your dog or let it run around outside its kennel. This comes after the German Minister of Food and Agriculture proposed an animal welfare ordinance.
– A proposal in Germany aims to punish dog owners who will not let their dogs exercise.
– The proposal was made by the German Minister of Food and Agriculture.
– The doggos should walk or run twice a day or for at least an hour outside their kennels.
The proposal is to let doggos exercise twice in a day or at least for an hour outside of a kennel. The proposal’s goal is to “ensure that dogs are given sufficient exercise and contact with environmental stimuli.” The exercise may be a walk or a run outside.
The proposal has garnered negative comments. One dog owner said that she does not believe in regulation because every dog is different when it comes to age, diseases, and adaptation to the climate. She pointed out that during this time when it’s too hot to go outside, dog owners should not even let their dogs out for a long period of time.
At this point, it remains unclear what the rules will be and what punishments would the dog owners be given in case the plan pushes through.
