Proposed legislation to limit or even eliminate the rights of dog owners to responsibly keep and breed dogs has been a growing phenomenon across the United States for several years now.
The members of the PWCCA, Inc. believe that all dogs deserve to be treated humanely and responsibly throughout their lives, and that the breeders, owners, and veterinarians of our beloved companions are best equipped to make the decisions about their care and breeding.
To that end, the PWCCA supports reasonable, positive legislation while opposing legislation that impinges on the rights of owners to make the best decisions for dog ownership, care, and breeding, including the right to own and breed intact animals.
The American Kennel Club (AKC) has created a way via their Government Relations web page for all fanciers to stay up to date on proposed legislation across the United States. Click HERE to find and track the status of legislation in your state.
The Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club of America believes it is and always has been an important part of our breed to have docked or natural bobtailed dogs. We strongly suggest that our puppies’ tails be banded as soon after birth as possible. This causes little discomfort to the puppies and is a totally bloodless procedure. Puppies that have been banded immediately return to normal nursing and settle in with their dam. The Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club of America stands firm on our right to raise our puppies as we always have, which includes the banding of tails.
