Protect yourself and your dog with up-to-date information regarding important Dog Laws that affect you and your pet community.Protect yourself and your dog with up-to-date information regarding important Dog Laws that affect you and your pet community.

Celebrate all those hard-won victories, voice your outrage over lengthy delays and learn how you can help effect change to your state, provincial or local laws. At PetGuide’s Dog Laws site we’re happy to share the stories as well as the names of those hard-working volunteers and political figures that are fighting to improve the lives of animals under their watch. We keep our eye on those that lead the pack by setting great examples as well as those lagging behind… mired in red tape and slow to step up to the plate.

From supporting the rights of service dogs to advocating for the elimination of high-kill shelters to delivering the argument against banning certain breeds–we cover the news and share updates as they happen and from around the world.

We also know that not all legal battles are about the ethical treatment of animals. Some dog laws are designed to protect pet parent rights so we cover those too! Ever wonder who is entitled to the fur-kid when divorce happens, whether you can have your little guy buried with you when your times come or if your pooch can join you in al fresco dining at your local restaurant? PetGuide.com offers answers to these puzzlers and more!

It’s not all doom and gloom and we love to share the many positive changes in local and federal laws such as those that now ensure military dogs are brought back home from war zones, animal abusers are tracked on databases and that pet shops must sell shelter versus puppy mill pooches.

So let PetGuide be your legal beagle when it comes to getting the low-down on the dog laws impacting our pets.
