Douglas County, Colorado, has indicated its willingness to work with the dog-owning and breeding community to develop effective laws, after a successful public workshop held on October 18.

The workshop was scheduled to discuss several new proposed laws, including regulations for nuisance/barking dogs and dogs considered “potentially dangerous.”

The AKC would like to thank the Colorado Federation of Dog Clubs and everyone who attended the workshop or contacted the county.  CFDC is reaching out to the county officials to work on amendments and effective solutions to protect dogs and the rights of responsible dog owners in the county.

AKC Government Relations and the Colorado Federation of Dog Clubs continue to monitor the county’s actions on this proposal.  For more information, contact AKC GR at or the Colorado Federation of Dog Clubs at
