2020欧洲杯体育在线网址Owners will need to provide a name and address for the dog, proof of microchipping, vaccination, neutering or spaying, and two emergency contacts. An annual fee will also be required to maintain the license, a tweet from the Denver City Council said.

2020欧洲杯体育在线网址Pitbulls are allowed but heavily regulated.

2020欧洲杯体育在线网址Aside from the microchip, my town requires the same thing for a dog license, and you get charged more if there's no proof of spay/neuter

The restrictions can be removed after 3 years if there are no incidents. It seems like a good system.

Seems like it is a system to make sure that the dogs are not being used for unsavory things like fighting and are being kept by owners that are willing to abide by the reasonable requests of the city in order to protect other citizens. Honestly, one would note that most cities require licensing and vaccinations so besides the two emergency contacts, I can't see how it is anything more than normally involved in dog ownership.

That's fine with me. Acknowledge the reality there is a possibility of bad things happening, but allowing people who make the effort to have their dog responsibly.

These regulations are no different than those in my city, for every dog, regardless of breed.

I lived in Denver when this ban took affect. It followed several high profile pit bull attacks.

The article does not mention why they revisited this, or more importantly, what the reasoning is behind the reversal. Setting aside any agreement or disagreement with the ban, nothing since then has changed.

This seems like a solution looking for a problem.

Requiring spay/neuter is very fair. A large large majority of attacks, Like 94% or so Are un-neutered males.

2020欧洲杯体育在线网址Also abused, neglected, and often strays.

2020欧洲杯体育在线网址Basically what every dog everywhere should require. The amount of irresponsible dog owners everywhere is insane. Not having the time, space, or knowledge and owning dogs is unfair. The amount of girls I dated in college who just got a dog and treated it like “their baby” and not a dog was insane. No structure, exercise, or rules and then yelling at the dog when they do something “bad”. Give your dog a structure and it makes the dogs life way better, especially with dogs like pits.

Sans microchipping and only need one emergency contact, this is the law for all2020欧洲杯体育在线网址 dogs in my town. You can also skip the neutering/spaying, but its an extra fee every year.

2020欧洲杯体育在线网址It’s a start which is better than banning them completely. Hopefully there is a lot of good dog owners over there.

This should be done for anyone owning a dog. Wait a minute.. it already is.. it's just not enforced.

Only difference here is you don't have to neuter but if you don't, you pay out the ass for registration.

As they should be.

Honestly, this should be the regulation for all pets.

All dogs have to be registered in Denver anyway. You can buy a 1 yr, 3 yr or lifetime license from the city. Like that for any breed.

This is pretty much standard for my dogs in Texas. Neither of them are anything but 100% doofs.
