What does a dog licence do, and why do I have to splash out my euros for one ?
Will the dog police come round and take my dog if I dont have one or what ?
Also "On-the-spot fine: €31.74 euro payable to your local authority" for not having a license.
Ah thanks for that 'star-pants'. I don't mind getting one if its going towards something good like dog control.
Ive never bought one and i honestly dont intend to start...
Ya i bought a licence, 3 years ago. The next year, they sent me a reminder letter, i couldn't ignore that. But last year, i didn't get a reminder letter. So if they ever pull me for it, ah sure i wasn't reminded. It can be an easy thing to forget, can't it?
I don't see why people wouldn't get one tbh, it's not a fortune, it goes towards good things and you don't have to pay a fine if you were caught.
I don't believe it goes towards anything good, and whilst I have licences for both dogs I think its another BS way of getting money from us.
Why dogs and not cats?. Or both, or pidgeons & tropical fish?.
Or we need a licence for horse's and donkeys?.
Do you have to carry this document with you anytime you walk your dog like a driving licence is to a car?
No, if your stopped you'll be asked to produce it.
Although I've never been stopped I did have the wardens call to the house in an attempt to intimidate me after I attended a protest against DCC's proposed ban on the dogs on the 'restricted breeds' list - indeed a few of us got a visit the following day.
The other two occassion was when a nosey neighbour reported I was letting two Pitbulls roam the streets!. Both those times the warden came down the dogs were with me in the front garden and my licences checked.
Grand stuff, I wonder why we don't just have a 'pets licences' for something similar to cover all our animals.
'Dog Licence' what a load of rubbish
just ducktape some fake whiskers on the dog if the dog warden is around!
*Don't do that, really don't
just another way for the government to wrangle money from its subjects..its funny trying to explain to people in less better off countries that in ireland we have to obtain a special licence to own such things as dogs and televisions...
