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

How You Can Help:
We can not do this on our own. We need the effort of

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.
