    Now the Government wants competence tests before you can be a dog owner

    Ruff justice: Owners of all breeds, including border collies like this, may have to pay for tests

    Every dog owner will have to take a costly ‘competence test’ to prove they can handle their pets, under new Government proposals designed to curb dangerous dogs.

    Owners of all breeds would also have to buy third-party insurance in case their pet attacked someone, and pay for the insertion of a microchip in their animal recording their name and address.

    The proposals are among a range of measures to overhaul dog laws in England and Wales being considered by senior Ministers, who are expected to announce a public consultation within weeks.

    But critics said responsible dog owners would be penalised by yet more red tape and higher bills – one expert estimated the extra costs at £60 or more – while irresponsible owners of dangerous dogs would just ignore the measures.

    Pets? No way. Children? Should be mandatory.

    Seems the US follows those idiot European trends regarding political correctness, San Fransiko being the leader here.
