Minnesota to Consider Breeder Regulations on Wednesday (2/13)

(Friday, February 08, 2013)

The Minnesota House Civil Law Committee will consider a bill on Wednesday, February 13 that would require licensing and inspections of “commercial dog breeders” and require all who meet the vague definition of “hobby breeders” to register with the state.

The AKC has numerous concerns with House File 84 and the significant burden it would place on responsible Minnesota dog breeders, while doing nothing to improve the lives of dogs in the state.

Read AKC’s previous Legislative Alert for more information on this bill.

AKC encourages dog owners and breeders to contact the members of the committee and consider attending Wednesday’s hearing to express your concerns with House File 84.
