5 Facts On BSL (Breed Specific Legislation)

Does your dog get judged by how they look? Dawg Grillz believes EVERY pup deserves a chance. Help us raise awareness on Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) by LIKING and SHARING this video.

What is Breed-Specific Legislation?

Breed-specific legislation is design to reduce dog bites and injuries. Breed-specific legislation (BSL) is the overarching term used to describe laws and ordinances which regulate or outright ban certain dog breeds, as a means of curbing dog attacks on humans and animals. Currently there are breed-specific laws in over 700 U.S. cities.

BSL is more than just a ban or limitations, and in many cases require that dogs covered under the legislation be spayed/neutered, muzzled when in public, property posting, and even mandatory liability insurance requirements, and special licensing and age requirements.

Does Breed-Specific Legislation Work?

There is no empirical evidence that BSL works in a way where it measurably reduces injury or fatality to humans or other household animals. Even the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has strongly opposed the enactment of such laws and ordinances in cities and communities, because of results from studies pertaining to human fatalities as a consequence of dog bites.
