For Pet Dogs

 It is considered important that the vaccination rate of dogs exceed 70% in order to reduce rabies. In Japan, dog registration and annual rabies vaccination are still obligatory for dog owners.

 Even during the rabies epidemic, dog registration was promoted through a financial system of dog taxes and fines. In addition, police officers and others actively registered dogs by conducting door-to-door canvassing and door-to-door registration. Furthermore, orders to moor dogs were issued by prefectural governors mainly during Rabies Prevention Week.
