The Dog Legislation Council of Canada (DLCC), (2003–Present) is a non-profit organization in support of dogs, which is located in Canada.[1]

Mission statement[edit]

The Mission Statement of the council is as follows:

First is the promotion and support of responsible dog ownership. This includes child dog safety programs, bite free programs for adults working in proximity of dogs (police, post office) and working with dog owners one on one. Second is to encourage and foster the implementation of non-breed specific dangerous dog by-laws. Non-breed specific dangerous dog by-laws designate dogs as 'dangerous' based on behaviour rather than breed. These by-laws allow for more efficient animal control without pointlessly punishing responsible dog owners. They address concerns with dog aggression and recognize the role of human negligence behind most incidents.[2]


The council is currently involved in a breed-specific legislation court case in Ontario, Canada.[3][4]
