On Twitter there is much talk about last night's Panorama and the issues the upsetting show churned up.
A relatively new idea has surfaced - a breeding tax to help pay for the collection and destruction of unwanted, surplus dogs.
I'd like to throw this concept over to you for debate.
Should it be licensed commercial breeders only that are taxed?
Should it be every dog bred ?
A one-off tax or should it be like road tax and be annual?
Could it be cheaper for some dogs than others - (neutered, rescued, highly trained etc)
How would the tax be collected?
Should any people be tax-exempt?
Would chips be used to link owners/breeders and the tax register - or is that too much like Big Brother.
Should there be a visible tax disk to show your pup is taxed? (In some countries there are coloured disks on the collar to show if rabies shots are up to date.)
Standing back ready to hear your views...
What if people don't pay the tax?
Would the Gov be able to take your dog like they take your car if you don't tax it?
Should neutered dogs be tax exempt?
Devil's advocate time here - I want to hear your views.
We need something radical, we can't be killing this many healthy dogs each year.
