Nebraska Legislature Discussing Dog Breeding Regulations

LINCOLN, neb. (AP) _ A measure to tighten the rules that dog
breeders in Nebraska must follow is advancing through the state

     Lawmakers on Wednesday voted 36-0 to send the bill to the next
level of debate.

     Sen. Tom Carlson of Holdrege is the chairman of the Agriculture
Committee. He says the bill is a compromise that includes input
from the state Department of Agriculture, the Nebraska Humane
Society and dog breeders.

     The bill would require that dog breeders keep individual animal
health records. Breeders must also give their dogs physical and
dental exams once every three years.

     The plan includes rules on appropriate exercise areas for dogs
and for animal identification using both traditional methods and
electronic microchips.

     Lawmakers say the bill would improve the lives of dogs in
commercial breeding facilities.
