    Interesting to see that somewhere animals are taken seriously.

    My dogs are walked once a day (twice or more if it's nice out), and they're perfectly fine.

    That's a bit much isn't it, it's alot of money and how is the city's council going to keep a check on how many times that people's pets are walked? :confused: Seems a pretty stupid law too me, just imagine if it came over here to the UK and too the US? lol

    Wow Im amazed. You can't bag a goldfish in the street? So are you suppose to carry them in a bucket? hahaha. But I think it's cool that owners should walk their dogs 3 times a week because I think 3 times a week is not enough.

    I think it may help to deter people from getting pets unless they are really serious! We shall see though! ;) I do think there should be harsh penalties for animal abusers!!

    Its a stupid law, meant to get attention. And it worked.

    Besides its not the amount of time you walk your dog but the distance.

    My dogs get three miles a day, walking, not including their rough housing in the yard. Yesterday we went into a fenced in property and they ran around in the brush for an hour.

    You can walk your dog three times around your home, but if its a Waimaraner, is that really enough?

    My mom walks 60 times around the inside of her house (it goes in a circle) for her exercise..and her dogs all follow her..so does Hyia..would bore my Victor to death..he would love the 3 miles but i can't make it that far on my feet..has to be happy with the couple blocks each day and the off leash dog park once a week..
    Doe that mean they wouldn't approve of my dying Victor Blue (with bluing) on Halloween when he trick or treated as Blues Clues?

    I have always thought you should have to qualify and obtain a liscense to have the privilege to own a dog

    Me too. Then again, i they should pass tests and get a license before raising kids, too :p.

    But i suppose that would be a bit fascist.

    This is a little strange. Some breeds would die if they were walked 3 times a day and they would really be in trouble if they were walked once a day in too hot or cold of weather. I think owners (talking about the good ones here) know what is best for their dogs, not the government. :p
