Poll: Should there be a legal 'theory test' before someone can own a dog?
Let us know.

YESTERDAY, A DOG behavioural expert called for a “mandatory theory test” to be introduced for people seeking to obtain a dog licence.

Speaking at the Joint Oireachtas Agriculture Committee yesterday evening, Nanci Creedon said that prospective dog owners need to be “educated a competent level” and that a theory test should be implemented by the Government.

This morning we want to know: Should there be a legal ‘theory test’ before someone can own a dog?

Poll Results:

Yes (4598)
