  1. This is a pdf copy of a power point presentation with an overview of the event / campaign Don't Blame the Dog (Skäll Inte på Hunden) April 2013...
     
    excerpt...
    "The importance of the dog is often forgotten when people complain about dogs and dog owners who do not "behave". Housing companies and politicians cry for banning and laws to minimize dog attacks against humans and animals. People feel insecure when they meet certain dogs and their owners in the street or where they live. Svenska Kennelklubben (SKK) sees it as a dog owner problem not a dog or breed problem. The problems can be minimized if the current laws are better enforced.
    During 2011 SKK met with its three largest regional clubs. The meeting identified common problems for our three largest cities. A motion was addressed to the SKK General Assembly suggesting a campaign with the aim of minimizing restrictions in owning a dog.
    The motion was granted and so the work began!"
