One Dog Per Owner!

Shanghai, China’s largest city, has a problem with dogs.  There are just too many of them.
So, in an effort* to reduce dog bites* and possible outbreaks* of rabies,* a new law went into effect May 1st: One dog per owner.  The law also reduces the fees* for licensing, to encourage people to comply.*  It also requires all dogs to be kept on a leash* while outside and bans* certain breeds* of dog which are considered aggressive.
Vocabulary:
effort – snaha
dog bite – kousnutí psem
outbreak – propuknutí
rabies – vzteklina
fee – poplatek
comply – být ve shodě (s předpisy)
leash – vodítko
ban – zakázat
breed – rasa
Question for discussion:  
Is this a good law?
