Moore, The Chicago Dog Coach, believes dog and cat owners should
consider not licensing their pets. While some feel there is value in
licensing, Moore sees this as government intrustion into the private
lives of individuals
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Ami Moore, The
Chicago Dog Coach, Strongly Urges Dog and Cat Owners to Avoid Licensing
Their Pets In The United States
one of the nation's top dog training experts believes it is urgent to
discuss the topic of dog and cat licensing in America. Many dogs in the
US go unlicensed. Ami Moore questions if that can create serious
problems for both dogs and dog owners
Chicago IL - October 9, 2014 ] A recent article
on the KCRW website in Los Angeles addressed the problem of unlicensed
dogs in the LA area. The professed benefits of licensing pet dogs and
cats are to provide the means to reunite owners with lost pets, help
curb disease and reduce stray pet populations. Ami Moore, a Chicago dog
training expert widely known as 'The Chicago Dog Coach', believes this
issue may be looked at in another way.
“I believe that
mandatory licensing of dogs is an unfair tax on dog lovers. I do not
believe that the government has the right to make you pay a tax for
owning a dog or cat. Another occurrence that I see is that cities will
make you pay an increased fee if your dog or cat is intact, yet current
research shows that dogs that are left intact, the way Nature intended,
live longer, are healthier and have greater resistance against cancer
and glandular diseases,” says Ami the Chicago Dog Coach. “I think the
government needs to stay out of my pocketbook and out of my dogs
"I am also against penalties for vets if the don’t
release the names of dog owners and their dogs to governments. I
believe that what happens between a vet and a dog owner is private and
the medical professional cannot and should not be compelled to give
lists of client’s names to the government."
"I am sick of the
current 'Nanny-State' mindset of our country where every act of
personal freedom and pleasure is controlled and taxed. If people want
to donate to shelter and rescues, then let them do that instead of
paying a tax on their pet. I have not seen any evidence that licensing
contributes in better health or welfare of either owned dogs or dogs in
pounds or shelters."
