I have developed a draft version of an on-line Dog License Application, using basic HTML, and also some JScript (as a learning exercise). You can try it at:
http://www.smart.net/~pstech/DogLicenseJS.htm
You might need to enable the script if your settings block it. You can view the code to see that there is nothing malicious. It's pretty simple, and you can change some of the values if you think there is a more reasonable method of determining fees.
There are possibly other factors that could be added, but this might be enough. I left out any breed-specific qualifiers. I might also add an adjustment for no incidents within a year, but that would be best for renewals. This is meant to be an initial fee; renewals would be less.

I might show this to my friend at AC, but I don't think he has internet access.
Thanks,

I'm impressed. But how do you know I didn't lie about my dog? It cost me $20 for Tuck,

Why is there no place for the name, sex and age of the dog? I would think you would have to put down the breed of the dog for a license. Shouldn't there be a place for owner's name and address?
Of course, I will need to add all that, and figure out a way to save the information from each applicant. This was mostly an exercise to see if it could be a fair way to incorporate the size of the dog and behavioral history to come up with a fee that represents the potential danger the dog might pose for other people and dogs.
BTW, my fee for Lucky is $25, and for Muttley it is $77.50. Those would be initial fees. Renewals would be about $10, unless there were further incidents, or additional training.
Thanks for giving it a try.

You might be required to submit records from your vet, and any bite records should be on file with AC. You could fudge it a bit, but a major lie would probably be caught (and then could be prosecuted as fraud). The maximum fee for a severely aggressive and untrained 200 lb Mastiff or Anatolian would be $280.
Thanks for trying it. If it seems like a workable solution, I'll put some more time into it and see if Animal Control might be interested.

I don't understand what this is for?

Paul has become an instant expert now on dog licensing fees. He is persisting with creating a tiered licensing fee even after being told (by people who actually have the experience to know) that it will not work, for a myriad of reasons.

Huh. I answered the questions for what I know of Muttley and came up with close to $100. Surely you are too much of a cheapskate to pay that. And Lucky's had no training.

I've revised the form a little, but not the basic fees. As I stated before, Muttley's fee would be $77.50. He is 75 lb, neutered, bit one person one time, not requiring medical treatment, and he bit the dog at Janet's obedience class at least once, requiring medical treatment. Lucky's fee would be $25 (some training) or $32.50 (no training).

I would not mind paying fees like that, especially as one-time charges as I intended. Renewals are less, unless there are additonal incidents. I can modify the form with a checkbox for renewals.
Thanks for giving it a try.
