Dog owners in Wenshan will no longer be able to walk their pets between 7 am and 10 pm, as well as a ban from parks, shopping centers, sports facilities and other public spaces in a new crackdown.

Wenshan officials have also stated that leads must be a short length and pets can only be walked by adults.

Many parts of the country have strict regulations for pet owners due to the belief of Communist China's founder Mao Zedong that they are a "bourgeois affectation", but this order appears to go much further than regulations in other provinces across China.
