Schreiber said he hoped to build on the kennel standards set in the 2008 Pennsylvania dog law by requiring more information from breeders around the country who sell dogs to Pennsylvania residents here.

In a co-sponsorship memo sent to members of the House, Schreiber wrote that his bill is "an effort to provide consumers with valuable information to help them make better-informed decisions regarding the purchase of a dog, the legislation that I will be introducing would require pet shops to display information regarding the dog, including the breed, age, and date of birth of the dog, the state in which the breeder of the dog is located, breeder licensing information, and any documentation of inoculations, worming treatments, and other medical treatments."
