    We have been heard!!!

    California dog enthusiasts can celebrate today!

    AB 702, the breeder permit bill, has been pulled from this morning's hearing in the Assembly Business and Professions Committee by the author. AB 702 is now a two-year bill.

    We are at the beginning of a two-year legislative cycle so converting this bill to a two-year bill means that it is dead for this year. It's possible for it to be changed and brought back next year, but judging by history, that is unlikely.

    This is a huge victory for everyone involved.

    Thanks to everyone who contacted their assembly members and to all the great groups that worked so effectively to stop this bill: in particular AKC and CalAnimals, and to all the other groups, including the CPPGA, that worked together to defeat this bad legislation.

    We have heard from a number of vets, through our students and membership, about the increase in the current dog influenza type virus.  According to these sources the virus is caused by a new influenza virus variant and their recommendation is that “your dog maintain a current vaccination for canine influenza particularly if they regularly socialize with other dogs or go to dog parks, daycare or boarding.” These e-mails to various client bases also state that "many of the dogs that have come in with this disease have reportedly been vaccinated for both Bordetella and Canine Influenza".

    How is that affecting the club so far?  We have had a few students that have missed one or more nights of class due to some form of “kennel cough”.  So far, no one else in those classes had any symptoms.  We routinely advise against having dogs come to class and play or interact with the other dogs directly as that makes the other dogs more interesting than the owner trying to get their dog’s attention for training.  For this reason, direct nose to nose, close contact interaction is not normally a part of our classes.  Direct interaction is the common mode of transmission for this respiratory disease. 

    Currently the club requires all dogs to be current on the normal vaccinations.  Due to COVID restrictions we have already reduced some contact vectors by not allowing use of the club dog crates, requiring students to bring their own crates when needed, and reducing class size.  We had considered, relaxing these restrictions and possibly allowing a small increase in class size due to COVID status for our county moving to a less restrictive tier but in light of the current increase in influenza type illnesses in dogs we will continue with existing COVID restrictions which will also serve to keep our classes safer for the dogs.

    Social distancing for the dogs (which includes bringing your own water dishes and water as needed to limit transmission between dogs) seems to be in order during this period of increased influenza type illness in dogs.

    Please take a moment to read through the recent legislative alert sent out by the AKC. Assembly Bill 702 has been scheduled for a hearing on March 19, 2021. This bill would require anyone who owns an intact dog or cat to obtain a breeding permit from their local jurisdiction. This bill would be incredibly detrimental not only to hobby breeders, but anyone involved in purebred dogs, dog shows, performance events, or anyone who choses to keep their pet unaltered for health reasons. Click the link below to read the brief on Assembly Bill 702 provided by the AKC, along with who to contact to show your concerns and some suggested talking points.

    Come join me on Zoom for a 1 hour free presentation about On-line Scent Work Training on Thursday December 10th at 7 PM

    I will explain how On-line Scent Work Training is done, what materials you will need for the class and how to sign-up. Because of the Pandemic people have been shut in with their dogs with little to do. On-line Scent Work Training can help you and your dog fight the boredom from the safety of your home.

    Scent Work is a relatively new activity for Pet Dogs and can be done with all breeds and ages. Even dogs with disabilities can do it. It's a great way to get your dog engaged and active by using their number one sense, smelling.

    Attendance is by reservation only. Please send me an email to reserve your spot. There is a limit of 40 attendees. The Webinar is Free.
