Do You Think It Should Be Required By Law For Potential Dog Owners To Go Through Dog Care Classes?

I think so. There are so many ridiculous people out there and in this section. I mean it is common sense really and they are usually unprepared to handle anytype of dog care, because they cant afford it, are too lazy, and etc

    I think it’s something everyone should do. And if people are getting a dog from a reputable breeder, the breeder usually makes the owner and puppy take classes.
    I think it would be hard to enforce if it was a law, and, of course, it would cause an uproar. But before I adopted out or sold a puppy, I would make the potential owner take a dog/puppy care class.

    I watch “Animal Cops” on Animal Planet and my heart just hurts to see how we…the crown of creation…treat our animals. I think that mistreatment should not be a misdemeanor but a felony with serious penalties, jail time and fines.
    I have read questions here that lead me to believe that folks should not be trusted with an animal unless they have some basic training.

    Yes, definitely and also for people wanting to have babies — but it’s not going to happen unfortunately.
    Both are too often impulse decisions, or for all the wrong reasons and the kids or the dogs suffer.

    I think it’s a good idea in theory, but putting it into practice would be almost impossible.
    Think about it….ANYONE is allowed to have a human baby…and alot of people shouldnt

    I think it would be hard to enforce considering all the irresponsible breeders, pet stores, etc…
    But it’s a good idea.

    You can’t legislate brains or common sense.

    Just like driving a vehicle, and owning a gun. Yes, it should be a required course.
