Current Code of Practice:
“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old but building the new.” -Socrates
Honest and loyal, dogs are the truest friends and most reliable companions. In celebrating the Lunar Year of the Dog, let us make this the year of positive change for our beloved sled dogs across Canada.
The current sled dog code of care published by the Canadian Coalition for Sled Dogs (see link below) is an interim code meant to be revised on an annual basis by its members until the proven, scientifically based practices are published.
Interested parties will see that the CCFSD has made the vast majority of the sled dog code of care mandatory to establish accountability for its members.
We invite all those who are dedicated to improving sled dog welfare to become a member of the CCFSD and join us in our mission to enhance, elevate and uphold greater standards of care for Canada’s iconic sled dogs, sport and culture!
