If you care about the future of our purebred dogs and are as worried as we are…then it is time for all to get up and support this fight before we lose our right to choose how we care for our animals, as we have always done … with good animal husbandry. A group of breeders have contacted the Merchant Law Group to assist us in stopping and reversing these bans. Merchant Law Group is a leading firm in class action litigation and has offices throughout Canada.

Purpose Statement


The Canadian K9 Alliance was established in 2009 to fight the growing misconception among the general public and veterinarians about the practice of docking, cropping and dew claw removal. We have also formed to stop the quickly spreading veterinary associations ruling on this practice as cruel and cosmetic.

How You Can Help:

We can not do this on our own. We need the effort of everyone who owns or loves a docked and/or cropped breed. Please write letters expressing your views to your appropriate lawmaker or Veterinarian, and to the CVMA and your Provincial Veterinary Medical Association. Watch this website for updates and changes.
