The NY Assembly Codes Committee is scheduled to consider a ban on debarking at a hearing tomorrow (Tuesday, March 17). The bill has already been approved by the Assembly Agriculture Committee.
The AKC opposes this bill, which would restrict the rights of responsible dog owners to make viable, safe decisions on behalf of their pets in conjunction with their veterinarian.
