Who We Are

We are dog lovers from across the state of Minnesota who work with our state legislators, DNR officials, local authorities, and other dog enthusiasts to regulate the use of lethal trapping devices to reduce their danger to domestic dogs.

We are all kinds of dog lovers who want to be free to enjoy the great outdoors without risk of losing our canine companions to unnecessary, lethal trapping methods.

When this issue is resolved, we'll get out of politics and back to what we love the most: spending time in the woods and fields with our dogs.


What We Want

We want to protect dogs by establishing the following for body grip traps and lethal snares.

We want these proven methods to be used.  Tens of thousands of trappers in other states and Canadian provinces use these proven methods and don't kill dogs.

  1. Five feet above the ground or ice

  2. Submerged in water

  3. In boxes that exclude dogs

  4. Lethal snares replaced with non-lethal cable restraint snares on land


The current body grip trap regulations will not protect your dog. The same sets that have been killing MN dogs for decades are still legal.
