This interactive discussion presents the scientific facts of why BSL (Breed Specific Legislation) does not make communities safer. Deirdre Franklin provides a strong case as to why the focus should be on individual dog owners rather than entire breeds or types of dogs.

BSL is a hot topic that affects dog owners, non-dog owners, dog trainers, and their clientele. This presentation will provide solutions for effective community safety through breed neutral recommendations.

 Learning Objectives
  • To understand why Breed Bans do not improve community safety, where these laws are in effect, and where they have been overturned. 
  • To learn how to spot the facts versus the myths and to identify “junk-science” and “fake-news” through history and arcane myths. 
  • To understand the adverse effects of breed specific legislation. We will discuss potentially poor decision-making by dog owners as well as the costs to taxpayers.
  • How to prevent dog bites through education, community safety, empowerment and inclusion. 
  • Creating allies and partnerships to increase the effectiveness of your message and how to build a movement that becomes the norm
