New in the Legislative Action Center: Updated Dangerous Dog Policy Resources

2020-10-30 | AKC Government Relations Department

As part of AKC Government Relations’ continued effort to empower dog owners and advocates, we are providing new and updated policy resources in the Key Issues section of the AKC Legislative Action Center. 

As the issue of dangerous dogs continues to be of concern to state and local governments, AKC GR has updated a number of our resources on the Breed-Specific/Dangerous Dog Laws key issue page, including:

This is in addition to our detailed policy document on dangerous dogs/breed-specific legislation that was introduced this spring.  This document includes talking points, model legislation, and other in-depth policy considerations for this issue. 

We encourage dog owners to review these materials and share them with lawmakers wanting to introduce legislation on this issue.  And be sure to keep checking back, as AKC GR continues to add new resources on a broad variety of key legislative issues. 

The AKC Legislative Action Center is a one-stop shop for dog owners, club members, and breeders to find the tools and resources you need to be an advocate for your dogs and breeding program.  Be sure to visit www.akcgr.org for the latest legislative alerts, as well as numerous advocacy tools and resources on a broad range of canine legislative issues.
