Action Alert

In addition to tracking and responding to legislative proposals, AKC Government Relations (AKC GR) addresses dog-related regulatory proposals from the U.S. federal government, all 50 states, and the District of Columbia. 

Regulations may be issued by federal and state government agencies to carry out and enforce legislation passed by Congress or state legislatures.  These agencies perform different functions, including rulemaking.  The rules, called regulations, are designed to guide those regulated by the agency.  Regulations also help ensure that laws are applied fairly and uniformly. 

The majority of regulatory proposals tracked by AKC Government Relations concern land use/hunting regulations and those governing the practice of veterinary medicine.  AKC GR will continue to provide alerts and comments on regulatory proposals as they are introduced. 

Have comments or questions regarding regulations?  Contact AKC Government Relations at (919) 816-3720 or doglaw@akc.org
