The Pet Direction Council, a coalition of pet business leaders championing responsible pet ownership, commissioned Harris Poll to run an online survey of over 2,000 U.S. adults ages 18 and older to discover Americans perspectives on puppy mill regulations.
The Pet Direction Council (PLC) is adding its support to efforts to enact breeder standards that are tougher with stringent enforcement. In once, the PLC is taking a lead part in a suit that challenges a petstore prohibition in Phoenix, Arizona.
“We all want to see puppy mills eliminated today,” said Bob Vetere, CEO of the American Pet Products Association, one of the founding members of the PLC. “But America’s pet lovers have made it clear that banning the sale of dogs and cats at local pet stores is not the best way to do it. What this poll tells us is that pet owners want tougher breeder standards so that they can be confident that dogs and cats are raised humanely and in the best interests of the animal.”
“Puppy mills are an unacceptable problem. But pet-store bans like the one in Phoenix and more than 50 other communities across the country should be an unacceptable solution,” said Ken Oh, Chairman of the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council and PLC member.
Oh noted that petstore prohibitions are unwittingly driving consumers to resources provided by the puppy mills that are very we need to finish. Consumers in areas with petstore prohibitions are being compelled to buy from sources that were unregulated and there’s a rise in underground – and unregulated – breeders streaming into communities.
“In fact, the survey finds that nearly 9 in 10 Americans say buying a dog from an unknown breeder online is not a safe way to obtain a family pet.”
“Local policy makers should take note of the findings in this survey,” said Steve King, President of the Pet Industry Distributors Association and PLC member. “Rarely do you see 80-percent of people in America agreeing on any one issue. Yet more than 80-percent of U.S. pet owners agree banning dog sales at pet stores will not stop puppy mills. We need to crack down on puppy mills, to be sure, and the PLC stands ready to help do so. But banning pet stores and stripping consumers of their rights is not the way to do it.”

Now is too little comprehensive data to explain dog bite events happen no completely successful in the very first place and, as such or evidence-based instruction measures are being executed to reduce them.
These perspectives will be presented by the Kennel Club in the assembly in the initial step towards planning and executing a strategy to ensure government support for later, and greater data collection, evidence-based instruction strategies.
“The Kennel Club is firmly of the perspective that dangerous dog law as it stands is next to worthless and has done nothing whatsoever to minimize how many dog biting events to the other side of Great Britain. Rather it demonises specific strains according to not scientific evidence and stereotypes.
“There are a variety of variables which lead to dog biting episodes and every episode is unique to its conditions, and we want precise data to create a more dependable picture of the prevalence of dog bites as well as their causes.
