The NJ State Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs is working with and urging you to support the key sporting groups in dealing with the current legislative issues:
A raft of bills are due to be heard Monday, June 10 at 2 p.m. in the Assembly Agriculture & Natural Resources Committee.
Our concerns include, but are not limited to:
A bill to regulate tethering, this would have a chilling
effect on the efforts of The Seeing Eye to properly train and prepare their service dogs for training. In addition, this would make the common practice of staking dogs at field trials illegal. It would also negatively impact the use of grooming tables, since they are commonly used with a non-buckle collar. Any situation where you would temporarily restrain your dog by tying to an object would become illegal if the lead were less than 15’. Walk your dog to the corner market to pick up coffee and a paper, tying them outside? Illegal. Working in your yard and tying your dog to a tree? Illegal, if the tie is less than 15’. Going on a picnic and attaching your dog to a table leg? Illegal, if the tie is less than 15’.
