On Wednesday, the majority in the Norwegian parliament (Storting) agreed on a proposal for a new law that will set stricter requirements for Norwegian dog owners.

The proposal says, among other things, that dog owners must prevent the dog from getting into a situation where it can do harm to people, animals, property, or things, Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) writes.

The dog owners must also acquire the necessary competence about the dog’s needs, as well as competence in training the dog.

The Norwegian Kennel Club (NKK) believes the proposal is an improvement from the current law.

The new law on proper dog keeping is expected to be finalized in the Storting on May 24.
