Legislative Updates:

US Congress :
Breeder mandates bill introduced in Senate would make changes to federal animal welfare act.
To mandate arbitrary new requirements for many breeders. Requirements include but not
limited to, indoor space sufficient to allow tallest dog to stand on hind legs without touching
roof of enclosure. Outside exercise area large enough to allow dog to extend to full stride. this
is one that you need to go to the government relations department on AKC.Org to read all
the details some of it’s pretty amazing and crazy. Your member of Congress needs to hear
from you. As you know very few of them know anything about dogs.
