According to these instructions, a dog over four months of age will have to be registered. Within 30 days after completing the age of four months, the dog owner will apply to his village panchayat for registration with a fee of Rs. 50.  After registration, the Panchayat will issue a metal token, which will be attached to the pet dog collar.  To protect the pet from the diseases the dog should be vaccinated periodically from the veterinarian.

A pet dog will always be under the control of its owner so that it does not scare or harm anyone.  The pet owner must ensure that the dog does not spread any kind of filth.  The dog owner must have adequate space, food and medical facilities to keep the dog safe.  After the death of the dog, it should not be buried in the open, but in the place provided by the panchayat, dig two and a half feet deep pit.  If anyone violates the orders of the Punjab government after keeping a pet dog, legal action will be taken against him.  Rural and Panchayat Departments teams may make a sudden inspection to see the maintenance of registered pet dogs.
