City Dog licences

6 posts in this topic

What does everyone think of these? I understand the purpose of making sure every dog in the city has had it's rabies shot. To protect residents. Our city charges $15 annually so $30 a year to have my 2 golden retrievers. I feel this is outragous! It seems like it is more of an honor system thing so why not make it cheaper or free so everyone would do it. I went in yesterday to get mine and only 27 dogs in our city. Yeah right!

I'm in St. Paul and will probably get the license for my pup. But ours is only $11 per year or I think its $30 or so for a lifetime license. To get the lifetime license you also have to have your dog microchiped which is $40.

If it were $30 a year I would probably skip it like many people do but a one time fee of $30 I can live with just for the off chance the dog gets loose and picked up by the city.

I'll be getting the microchip and license shortly. The application is already filled out actually.

Also I was talking with a friend of mine who owns a dog and I asked him if he registered it. He had no clue that he was supposed to. I think thats the case with alot of people. Ignorance is bliss for them I guess.

our city charges $10 for male/female, and $5 for spay/nueter.

also cats are supposed to be tagged too, except I wouldn't own one of them unless it pointed or retreived.

If you don't buy a tag, and are caught, the fine doubles, and can get a ticket for an untagged pet.

I pay the fee, for my english, and german, my neighbor don't pay for his 2 germans.

Basically in our small town, if your dog is out and caught, the tage tells Joe where to take the dog back too. after you pay the fines.. you get the dog...

My dogs are in kennel, and no problems, but I know one guy who never got the tags and ended up his dog running 3 or 4 times and costing him about $400 buck...

I think the other main reason for the tags are to insure that people are getting proper Rabies Vacs so when Poochie gets out and bites, if it had a tag, it was probably vaccinated..

Our town has the two tier system as well. I think it's $15/$10. That a pet peeve of mine...what interest does the city have in whether my dog is neutered or not?

Here's the funny thing about my city. Once you pay, you are in the system and they will auto-fine you if you let the license lapse.

Ours is like $12 and $27. I don't know what difference it makes to them, other than I suppose intact dogs tend to cause more problems (i.e. escaping to "do the duty").

I've got ours registered--not too big of a deal, I guess, considering all the other money we have invested in him. But I know a lot of unregistered dogs.

    • Already doing many of these.  It's slowly improving.
    • I was just getting some info on this unit: http://www.zoellerpumps.com/en-ap/product/63-basement-sentry#features     I am sure you could hook up multiple batteries as well
    • Sunday, pulled a group of 3 toms from about 500 yds across private into the public only to hang up at 60 yds. We worked them for 2 hrs and they never got in front of the blind. They finally got closer, but instead of going in front of the blind, they got behind the blind at about 5 yards inside the woodline and could hear them stepping on twigs. Man what a rush. Sadly, they walked back onto private and out of our lives LOL. Kinda wish I was hunting with a shotgun!   3 or 4 gobblers were rattling off behind us in the woods in the morning and shut up by 7. The 3 that we got to come in from private were to the other side and they didn't gobble til they were close enough to see/hear our setup. Those two hours were between 8 and 10. Will try again.
    • They will lose 90 to 100 games again this year. They do not have the pitching to even get to 500. Santana will be our lone all-star and be traded before end of year. Hope something changes but they did not add anything for starters or offensive so until they do we will get the same junk. Really sucks cause i love watching and listening to the games all summer long.
    • % of people that have picked that person. 
    • Some rainy river monsters! 61" 60" and a 54"! Have a look!  
    • Many big sturgeon boated this past week again.  Has been a great year for sturgeon so far up and down the river.  Fish different holes until you find fish.  Use a 3 ounce no roll sinker, a 1-1.5 foot leader, and a circle hook loaded (called a sturgeon rig) with frozen shiners and crawlers for best results. Anchor boat up stream of a deeper hole and pitch sturgeon rig into the hole. Heavy equipment is preferred.  Pike fishing is going good right now in shallow bays and on the Rainy River. Best methods so far are using buzz baits or lying a frozen cisco on bottom with a hook and weight(similar to a sturgeon rig but with less weight).   Pike are active in bays. The lake and bays and water starting to warm up and pike are being caught.  Pike are open all year up on LOW.   Up at the NW Angle, the ice is gone and it's open water.  Remember, walleyes open May 13th, pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN and sturgeon fishing through May 15th and then again July 1st.
    • Was clearing some downed trees from trails this morning. Checked a couple of trees and would you look at that. I didn't look very hard so I'm sure there are more, but of course have to head to work. Cold weather predicted after today though...  
    • Fished the Chip this weekend and found some success.  Lots of crappie action in select bay and bottle neck areas near warm water, timber and old cabbage.  Bobber and minnow was best, but anything was working.  We kept 10 smaller fish for the 3 of us and that was plenty of fish for us.  No need in keeping 25 fish (what a joke).  I wish the DNR would reduce the limit in WI!
    •   CM..that is a big "if" and pretty much the story of the series...good puck possession, lots of shots, few goals...and they have to find guys that can score against the "Allen's" of the world going forward...we aren't going to be playing against trash tenders come any playoff time.   Agree with your observation on the D zone coverage...way too much stick checking all over the ice by both forwards and Dmen...lack of putting body on opponents is either A  - pure laziness or  B - simply outmatched physically. This has to be addressed going foward.   Quite frankly I cannot think of one player that stepped up in the playoffs and played above their reg season...not one.    Haula seems to be a headcase...I don't think he is near as good as he thinks he is and tends to beat to his own drum IMO but we might be stuck with him. Ek will figure it out...playing in the World's now after playing in the Junior World's as well so he'll keep working on his game and be a good one soon IMO.   Will be interesting to hear Fletch's spin on things when he assesses things publicly soon but my guess is it will be "the sky is not falling...blah blah blah" same dump every year.  Sounds Like Leo is keeping him unfortunately...but he's made his own bed, now he has to sleep in it and there are not many GM's in the NHL that envy his postion IMO.
