Support legal dog breeding by opposing CA Bill AB702


LOS ANGELES, March 11, 2021 / PRNewswire / – The International Labradoodle Association, Inc. (ILA), dba Australian Labradoodle Association of America (ALAA), has announced its objection to the California Bill AB702, which aims to limit the capacity of breeders to California to do business. The bill will hurt law-abiding and responsible breeders and pets, and will fail to stop puppy mills. The legislation, if passed, also prohibits the use of guardian homes, which place breeding dogs with families. In addition, the bill prohibits dogs and cats from breeding more than once a year, which interferes with their natural reproductive cycle.

Negative effects of the passage of California Legislation Bill AB702:

  • Targets and forces skilled and law-abiding ranchers to close their doors or withdraw their activities from California.
  • Increases demand for puppies produced by illegally managed kennels and backyard breeders.
  • Promotes shipping of puppies from locations outside of California with little or no regulation.
  • Force of unhealthy and harmful husbandry practices.
  • Invades the privacy of dog and cat owners.
  • Promotes similar legislation in other states.

Advantages of California Breeding regulations in force:

  • Legitimate breeders from ALAA and other organizations must qualify under strict criteria for responsible breeding, including high quality physical and mental treatment of breeders’ dogs and puppies.
  • Restricting breeding to once per year or limiting the age of breeding dogs hampers the ability of breeding veterinarians to guide breeders on the best medical breeding choice for their dogs.
  • Advantages of the sitter house: The sitter houses allow the dog to live in a normal and loving family environment and to have only one house for his life. The guarding system helps breeders manage the number of dogs in their care.

Take action:
ALAA donates to the National Animal Interest Alliance Trust (NAIA) and the Calvary Group; both organizations are actively fighting this bill. ALAA encourages all members and alliances to act immediately to write to their California representatives. Find the local officials here: In addition, please sign the ALAA petition at
