Minnesota could improve regulations on dog breeders

No Gravatar

The Minnesota state legislature could vote this month on a bill to regulation dog breeding in the state and offer a better means to uncover puppy mill breeders.

The MyFox9.com article posted March 28 does start out with a somewhat unsupported statement – “Most dog and cat breeders in the state of Minnesota play by the rules, but what about the ones that don’t?

How does the writer know this. At this point in time, I would venture to say the quality breeders are out-numbered by the substandard breeders, even to the degree of breeding practices that take into account genetics.
The article reports the proposed bill features provisions for annual inspections, record keeping and “minimum health protocols.”

One dog breeder is quoted, who doesn’t like regulation that requires the dogs receive some physical affection. Who could be anti affection?
And I’m sure the AKC types will roll out their objections, as they usually oppose inspections and health standards and anything that might lead to better, more humane care. They believe it would be terrible for inhumane conditions to be uncovered during an inspection. Certainly they can’t be opposed to inspections where the breeder is taking great care of their dogs or cats.

  1. Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d
    ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest
    authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My site covers a lot of the same
    subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you’re interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by the way!

  2. Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some
    help from an established blog. Is it very hard to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty
    quick. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to start.
    Do you have any points or suggestions? Appreciate it

  3. This design is incredible! You most certainly know how to keep a
    reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to
    start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
