The Government Relations department leads the AKC’s legislative efforts and identifies its goals as “working to protect the rights of all dog owners and promote responsible dog ownership” (AKC Mission Statement.) GR further identifies its mission as educating and informing responsible dog owners and breeders about the issues that impact them as well as monitoring and positively impacting legislation that affect them. The AKC recognizes that advocacy works best when those who are directly affected by legislation take the lead in working with policymakers.

Learn the latest from AKC GR and take action on bills that could impact responsible dog ownership, canine wellbeing and your rights to own a dog.
