IC 15-21-4-1 Standards of care
Sec. 1. (a) A commercial dog breeder shall comply with the
standards of care set forth in 9 CFR 3.1 through 9 CFR 3.12.
(b) A commercial dog breeder:
(1) may not house a dog in a cage containing a wire floor unless
the cage contains an accommodation that allows the dog to be
off the wire floor;
(2) who houses a dog in a wire cage shall house the dog in a
cage that is large enough to allow for reasonable movement by
the dog; and
(3) shall, subject to subsection (c), provide every dog with a
reasonable opportunity for exercise outside of a cage at least
one (1) time per day.
(c) A commercial dog breeder who permits a dog access to a run
at least one (1) time per day has satisfied the exercise requirement
described in subsection (b)(3). However, a commercial dog breeder
is not required to provide a dog with the opportunity for exercise if
exercise would endanger the dog's life or health. As added by P.L.111-2009, SEC.4.
