Dog owners in The Big Apple are balking at new rules that require them to carry a certificate of licensing whenever they are out and about with their dogs. The city used to send out stickers for renewal; just stick it on your your dog’s tag, and you were good to go. Now, it’s more onerous:
Instead of receiving renewal stickers each year for a dog’s collar tags, the city is sending out paper documents that owners must carry when walking their pet. An electronic version of the paperwork that can be pulled up on a smartphone will also be available.
As some advocates note, not everyone has a smartphone, especially lower-income folks.
What do you think about this? Are folks right to be upset?
