    Animated Wink New Jersey Legislation for Groomers Formally Introduced May 24th

    http://parsippanyfocus.com/2018/05/2...s-rooney-bill/

    MORRIS COUNTY — In response to the recent deaths of three dogs that died at routine grooming appointments in New Jersey, Assemblyman Kevin J. Rooney introduced legislation today requiring pet groomers who have three or more complaints filed against them to register with the state Division of Consumer Affairs.

    “Many pet owners consider their pets part of their family,” said Rooney (R-Bergen). “To have them die suddenly at the hands of a pet groomer is tragic. But we shouldn’t penalize all groomers because of the actions of a few.

    “Most are mom and pop main street shops who are reliable and survive by having strong relationships with their customers,” continued Rooney. “Requiring them to be licensed in New Jersey would create another unnecessary burden on small businesses. At the same time, we need to provide a level of regulation to ensure the safety of pets in their care. This bill provides the right balance.”

    Under the bill (A4055), if three complaints are filed against a pet groomer in a calendar year resulting in the death, injury or severe illness of the animal, the groomer must register with DCA.
    Coordinators post updates to the message for grooming events, members contests, PG.com Classified Ads, GroomerTALK Radio shows and PG.com Magazine online.

    Three offenses. Alright, what is an offense. Bad breath receptionist? It cannot be 3 different violent acts if it is a crazy groomer. Putting this number on something like "3" is hell. How do you qualify the 3. Refusing service for example, for a good reason for a dog that say needs to go to a vet first....the owner files a complaint, strike 1. Come on. Very unclear.

    Read the last paragraph. It says 3 deaths,3 injuries or serious illnesses. I also think theres no support for this and it's unlikely to happen.

    The vet board wants ZERO to do with regulating groomers. They are against the bill and as a result of that it's likely going to fail as written. Many have written articles about it and they are very influential.
    Groomers are working hard on the inside. This is far from being over unless I am completely wrong about it.
