Germany will introduce law next year to help their dogs stay fit.

The new law will require dog owners to walk their dogs twice a day.

There are 9.4 million dogs in Germany living in 19% of homes.

The country’s agriculture minister, Julia Klöckner, has said she is introducing the new law because dogs are not getting the exercise or they need.

Under the new regulations in the Hundeverordnung, or Dogs Act, each walk must be at least one hour long.

Other rules in the new law include the following;
The tethering of dogs on a chain or a lead for long periods also faces an all-out ban.
Dogs may not be left alone at home all day, and a person will be required to take care of their dog “several times a day”.

  1. That is sooo not fair for the owners because what if you work late you will have to take them out in the pitch black and for the dogs they might be old so that is just cruelty

  2. That is good! The dogs ill be fit and it will build a better relationship between the dog and the owner and also it is fitness for the person as well!
