Texas Dog Bill Bad Deal 2021

Texas members should contact their Senators and urge them to oppose Senate Bill 323. The more people that calls and emails and writes the better chance we have of killing this bill

Legislation that would force everyone from casual hunters to sporting dog kennel owners to be licensed as a commercial dog breeder has been introduced in the Texas Senate. Under current law, a person that possesses 11 intact females and sells or exchanges more than 20 dogs in a year must obtain a breederís license. Senate Bill 323, sponsored by State Senator Royce West, would reduce the number of intact females to five and completely remove the 20 dogs-sold threshold. If this bill were to become law, anyone who owns five intact females and sells or exchanges even one puppy would be forced to be licensed as a dog breeder and to comply with commercial operation regulations.

Take Action! Texas members should contact their Senators and urge them to oppose Senate Bill 323. Texas members can find their delegates by using the Sportsmenís Alliance Legislative Action Center.

Sporting dog kennels, hobby breeders and hunters do not exist for commerce, and most could not afford to be regulated as such. Senate Bill 323 will result in the elimination of sporting dog kennels, and even puts everyday hunters at risk.

"Senate Bill 323 is a one-size-fits-all bill that treats all kennel and dog owners the same, regardless of their purpose," said Jacob Hupp, associate director of state services for Sportsmenís Alliance. "This bill will impact guides, trainers and sporting dog kennels, especially for bird dogs and houndsmen, as well as impacting the breeding of quality hunting dogs, field trialers and other hobby breeders across the state."
