    Default PA: Bill introduced to protect dog training areas

    October 23, 2013

    The Pennsylvania Senate has unanimously approved a bill that creates
    several amendments regarding field trials and dog training areas in the
    state. This bill was assigned today to the House Game and Fisheries
    Committee.

    Background:

    Senate Bill 1068 creates a number of new provisions, including:

    Making it unlawful for anyone to “willfully, negligently or
    maliciously” kill, injure or interfere with a dog engaged in training or
    field trials within a designated dog training area, or to “negligently
    and maliciously” interfere with a person training dogs, participating in
    field trial events, lawfully hunting or trapping in a dog training area.

    Changing the minimum area for dog training areas to 50 acres
    (Current law requires dog training areas to be between 100 and 250
    acres. The maximum area is not changed in this bill).

    AKC Government Relations will continue to monitor this legislation and
    provide information as this bill advances. For the latest status,
    contact AKC Government Relations at (919) 816-3720 or doglaw@....

    I received the information from the AKC about this and would like to know where these training areas are? Do they exist for Retriever training ? Are they public or private or some of both? Do you have any information on this?
    Today I stopped in Senator Whites office and no one could help me with information on the subject other than the senate passed it and sent it to the house.
