New Law 4 2012

As we head into 2012 I thought I’d let you know about proposed changes in Canine legislation – can be found on

31.01.12 – Evidence on the Transfer of Unwanted Puppies (Etc.) Regulations closure date. May be consultation later in year. Can the Government fix TUPE? Yes it can – if it only understood it to start with!

01.02.12 – New awards come into force – maximum statutory working week = 430 biscuits. Maximum award raised to 72,300 biscuits. That’s a lot of biscuits. You’d probably have to be a female police dog, from a non-Alsatian background – retired early to get that many biscuits (and have an index linked kibble allowance).

06.03.12 – The consultation on whether fleas will have to be paid in Tribunal cases closes. I think I may be a bit confused on that one.

April – Increase in qualifying period to bring claim up to 2 years (which will be indirectly discriminatory to larger dogs I suggest) , unpaid puppy leave 4 months.

October – Large kennels will have to allow dogs to join a pension. National Minimum Biscuit rate likely to increase.

I shall be commenting on these as they arise and, of course, writing new laws as the year goes by. Monday – double-entry bookkeeping!

Happy New Year
