A proposal is scheduled for a vote on July 5 by the Baltimore County Council that would prohibit dogs being used for hunting or training on county-owned property. 

Current law states that any dog being used for hunting or trained for hunting is exempt from the county’s at-large dog laws. 

The AKC opposes the portion of Bill 42-16, which would change this exemption and prevent sportsmen from continuing to use county lands for activities with their dogs.  These important activities celebrate responsible dog ownership and training and environmental conservation, and also generate significant revenue for the county. 

What You Can Do:

Those who participate in field trials, hunting, and similar activities with dogs in Maryland are encouraged to:
