Unfortunately, I was unaware that I couldn't show my dog in obedience trials. I contacted the CKC to find out the rules and regulations for the obedience trials. This was the response that I received.....

THE HARD FACTS ON BILL 132 in ONTARIO

The following information from the Canadian Kennel Club provides our members and CKC Event participantís factual information regarding the impact of Bill 132 in Ontario.

The complete legislation and regulations should be reviewed on the website of Attorney General Michael Bryant at www.attorneygeneral.jus.gov.on.ca

Specific concerns relative to your personal circumstances or requests for clarification of the Act should be directed to michael.bryant@jus.gov.on.ca or mbryant.mpp@liberal.ola.org . Phone contact can be made at (416) 326-2220.

The Act comes into effect August 29, 2005.

For the purposes of the Act a pit bull is defined as: A pit bull terrier, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, an American Staffordshire Terrier, an American Pit Bull Terrier, a dog that has an appearance and physical characteristics substantially similar to any of those dogs.

OWNING A RESTRICTED PIT BULL IN ONTARIO

1) Current owners may keep existing dogs or those born within 90 days after August 29 as long as they comply with the Act.

2) After the ban comes into effect, a person who did not own any pit bulls may acquire one (1) restricted pit bull.

3) A person who owned one (1) or more pit bulls on August 29 will be able to acquire more as long as the number does not exceed the total owned on August 29.

PARTICIPATING AT AN ONTARIO EVENT WITH A RESTRICTED PIT BULL

1) All breeds recognized by the Canadian Kennel Club, can still participate in Official CKC Events. The dog must have participated in at least one approved event during the 365 day period prior to August 29, 2005 within Ontario or elsewhere.

2) Muzzle and leash restrictions are not required while the dog is on the site and participating in an approved event.

3) The sterilization of a dog participating in approved dog events is not required.

TRAVELLING FROM OUTSIDE ONTARIO TO AN APPROVED EVENT

1) Restricted dogs traveling in Ontario must be registered with the CKC or other approved registry as listed in the Regulations.

2) Such dogs may only be in the province during 14 day periods that include an approved dog event in which the dog participated (provide copy of entry as documentation).

3) The dog is not required to be sterilized.

4) Except when at an approved dog event the dog must be muzzled and leashed in public.

So naturally I wrote back to clarify because this was such a rediculous letter. Just to clarify if my dog has not been in a trial yet, he can now not participate?
The woman wrote me back and said, "Unfortunately this is the case."

I DISPISE YOU MICHAEL BRYANT!
Not only do my dogs have to be muzzled for the rest of their lives, but they can't compete to better themselves.
