German government officials have announced that they will introduce a new rule: people in Germany must walk their dogs for an hour twice a day. As soon as the news came out, there was a big discussion among the people in Germany. Germany’s agriculture minister, Julia klocker, announced this week that she had taken expert advice and would introduce new legislation to ensure that German dogs walk or run in the garden at least twice a day for an hour. “Pets are not cute toys, and owners must consider their needs,” krocler explained, adding that pets must be trained enough not to leave them alone for a long time, nor to chain them for a long time. Kroller also said that the new regulation will be implemented from next year, and 16 German Federal States will be responsible for implementing the regulation, but the specific implementation method is not clear. According to reports, there are 9.4 million pet dogs in Germany, 19% of families have dogs, and nearly one fifth of families have hounds. German media and residents are baffled by the new rule. In a commentary article, German newspaper Bild criticized: “forcing dog owners to take their dogs for a walk? It’s ridiculous A spokesman for the German Dog Association VDH said most dog owners were laughing at the new rule because they had spent enough time walking with their four legged friends. A dog trainer pointed out that the amount of exercise a dog needs depends on its health, age and breed.
German Saskia Ludwig Tucao on Twitter: “I will not make complaints about my dog going out two times a day at high temperatures.” Another Berlin resident, who owns a Yorkshire Terrier, said, “who’s going to check me? If my neighbors suspect that I’m not walking my dog for a long time, will they call the police? ” A resident of Cologne also said: “they may also want to make complaints about how long the cat owners must change the cat litter tray.”
