For almost a decade, the Maryland Dog Federation promotes, protects and defends the canine-human bond and your ability to own and enjoy dogs in the state of Maryland. The Federation is a grass-roots group that is concerned about the laws that directly impact the lives and enjoyment of dog owners in the Free State. Legislators can only know the needs of dog owners if we are there to tell them. We want lawmakers to know that WE are rational experts when it comes to dog ownership, we know what effective dog law is, and encourage them to consult with us early in the lawmaking process.
The Maryland Dog Federation is a local dog-owner advocate group and NOT an animal rights organization.
After careful, non-partisan and rational analysis, MDF supports those issues, policies and legislators that positively effect dog owners and communicates its position to our representatives and constituents.
