A point system for regulating pet dogs has reduced complaints about dogs biting or otherwise disturbing people by 65 percent in 2017 from the previous year in Jinan, Shandong province, according to the social security branch of the Jinan police.

"Thanks to the regulations, complaints about unleashed dogs also went down by 43 percent in 2017 from 2016," Chen Zhao of the Jinan police bureau said on Tuesday.

The point system, introduced in January 2017, targets dog owners who walk their pets without a leash and fail to carry a proper certificate.
