The Ballston Spa Village Board declined to move forward on a 5 dog limit law after hearing from many concerned responsible AKC club members and dog owners.Â Â This limit would have included any dogs harbored in a household within city limits â meaning the threshold could have included dogs staying temporarily on a property, even if they are not owned by the resident.
Read AKC’s previous Legislative Alert for more information about the proposal.
AKC Government Relations (AKC GR) supported the efforts of these concerned dog owners by alerting local clubs of the pending hearing, writing a letter of concern, and providing the Village Board with suggestions for more effective solutions.Â
We congratulate and thank all the fanciers and dog owners who took the time to contact the Village Board with concerns and attend the July 9 hearing!
