Dog-Legislation.com is a compilation of federal, state and local legislation affecting dogs and dog owners.

This site does not attempt to provide opinions on proposed laws. Rather, the purpose of the site is to collect and display basic information on dog-related legislation in a concise fashion that is easily referenced based on location.

Dog legislation includes breed-specific legislation (breed bans or regulations based on breed, BSL), mandatory sterilization (mandatory spay/neuter, MSN), tethering (chaining, penning), licensing, pet limits, dangerous and vicious dogs, rabies law, animal cruelty, breeder regulations (breeding permits, litter permits), pet industry regulations (groomers, trainers, veterinarians), and more.

Any site visitor is welcome to post alerts about proposed legislation in your area; however, the site owner reserves the right to reject or edit posts before they are published.
