Much more reasonable:
Section 212. Dogs temporarily in the Commonwealth.
Any person may bring, or cause to be brought into the State, for a  
period of 30 days, one or more dogs for show, trial, or breeding  
purposes or as a household pet without securing a Pennsylvania  
license, and any person holding a Pennsylvania nonresident hunting  
license may, without securing a license or licenses therefor, bring or  
cause to be brought into the State one or more dogs for the purpose of  
hunting game during any hunting season when hunting with dogs is  
permitted by law, if a similar exemption from the necessity of  
securing dog licenses is afforded for hunting purposes to residents of  
Pennsylvania by the state of such person's residence; but each dog  
shall be equipped with a collar bearing a name plate giving the name  
and address of the owner.

Section 213. Transportation of dogs.
It shall be unlawful for any dog required to be licensed as  
hereinbefore provided, to be transported for any purpose without a  
current license tag firmly attached to a collar or harness securely  
fastened to the dog except when a dog is being transported for law  
enforcement, to receive veterinary care pursuant to an order of the  
secretary for humane purposes or by the owner to or from a hunt, show,  
performance event, field trial or commonly accepted training practice  
involving hunting dogs and dogs that participate in such events. All  
vehicles being used to transport dogs are subject to inspection and  
must meet requirements for such transportation through regulations as  
promulgated by the secretary.
(213 amended Oct. 9, 2008, P.L.1450, No.119)

Section 214. Health certificates for importation.
It shall be unlawful to transport any dog into this Commonwealth  
except under the provisions in section 212 without a certificate of  
health prepared by a licensed doctor of veterinary medicine, which  
certificate, or copy of such, shall accompany such dog while in this  
Commonwealth. Such certificate shall state that the dog is at least  
seven weeks of age and shows no signs or symptoms of infectious or  
communicable disease; did not originate within an area under  
quarantine for rabies; and, as ascertained by reasonable  
investigation, has not been exposed to rabies within 100 days of  
importation. All dogs must have been vaccinated for rabies in  
accordance with the act of December 15, 1986 (P.L.1610, No.181), known  
as the "Rabies Prevention and Control in Domestic Animals and Wildlife  
Act." The name of the vaccine manufacturer, the date of  
administration, and the rabies tag number must appear on health  
certificates prepared by a licensed doctor of veterinary medicine.
