You do if you buy the deluxe model.

Hope you get some justice OP.

It's after hours, what were you expecting?

The fine is severe!

They were lifted as stray, nobody was in control of them - it must be an ongoing problem there. You had such little control of them you didn't even notice them missing until they were lifted. Shocking!

To be fair, he got the justice he deserves, dogs unmanaged and he didn't even notice them gone. Shamefull!

Bzzzt. Wrong again.


Did you read that? There is no requirement to have the dog on a lead if you have it under vocal control. The OP clearly didn't have it under the latter as if he did the warden wouldn't have been able to take the dogs without him noticing but dogs clearly do not have to be on a lead.

That's not the fine though. The OP should have been charged a €25.40 reclaim fee and also possibly a €30/60 fine. That's a max of €85.40. The warden seems to have been planning to pocket the other €164.60 as there is absolutely no official reason for him to demand that money. And that is the more serious issue on this thread. The OP didn't look after his dogs properly, they were taken and he should have been fined the correct amount. A public official abusing his position to steal from the public is a big problem.

You said that there was no similar law in Fingal. Clearly there is.

I'm glad to see the wardens doing their job. I hope the OP learns his lesson.

No time specific law which is what you claimed applied.

Here's the full list of fines at Ashton:

http://www.dublincity.ie/Community/AnimalWelfare/pages/dogcontrol.aspx

Fees/Fines for reclaiming your dog back from the pound
Pound reclaim fee: €20
Bed and board: €8 per night
Licence fee (if unable to produce current licence): €20.00
Fine: Failure to produce current licence: €30
Fine: Failure to keep your dog under effectual control: €30
Fine: No collar and ID: €30

Easy to get close to €250 if he had no collar and ID and unable to produce a licence.

And effectual control of the dog, which is obviously why his dogs were taken.

To lose one dog is careless but to lose two beggars belief. To be honest I wouldn't have believed it was possible. I'm sure you'll find the bylaws support the actions of the pound.

Not only are you going to have to pay that €250 fine but also expect another fine for your dog 'not having a name tag' like they said to us and tried to charge us €80, on the way out after dashing out a huge sum of money I notice a worker holding his 'non existent' collar in their hand trying to hide it. Also enjoy getting your dogs back with Kennell cough like I did

Eh 250???!! Doesn't sound right. Had to get my OH's terrier out of the pound in Louth a few months ago and he didn't have a license. Got the license 12.50 and 40euro for getting the dog out and that's all he paid as far as I remember.

how did you get a €20 license for €12.50
