Taking your dog for a walk twice a day for an hour could soon be a law in Germany

Germany just came up with new rules for dog owners – pets first.

“Pets are not cuddly toys, their needs have to be taken into account,” Agriculture Minister Julia Klöckner said about the requirements to ensure animal protection and welfare that could become law early next year.

A new law may require dog owners to take their pets for walks twice a day for at least an hour total, BBC reported.

Also, there may be a ban for chaining dogs for a prolonged period of time. 

The country also wants to ensure puppy farms only care for a maximum of three litters and attend to the puppies a minimum of four hours a day to ensure proper socialization.

If the new laws pass, German states will be in charge of enforcement.
