Description

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
