Welcome to American Sporting Dog Alliance

by bimmia on September 7, 2012

The American Sporting Dog Alliance was created by John Yates.  John died September 15, 2009

The American Sporting Dog Alliance represented owners, breeders and professionals who work with breeds of dogs that are used for hunting. They welcomed people who work with other breeds, too, as legislative issues affect everyone. They were a grassroots movement working to protect the rights of dog owners, and to assure that the traditional relationships between dogs and humans maintains its rightful place in American society and life. The American Sporting Dog Alliance was  funded solely by the donations of members, and maintained strict independence.

John wrote extensively on the topic of dog owner rights.

Here is a sampling of some of those writings:



John no longer owns this site.  I purchased the domain for purposes unrelated to John’s cause, but learned about its previous purpose after I purchased it.  I have decided to keep the site up as sort of a tribute to his work.

It appears John’s wife also put together a collection of his writings that can be purchased on Amazon:

People “in dogs” did not realize how fortunate we were to have John Yates as a spokesman for ourselves, our dogs, our sport.
We owe it to him to become proactive and stop allowing laws to be passed which at the least infringe on our rights as Americans who love dogs.
Currently there is a PA House Bill 2409 – which, if passed today, will give corrupt Humane Society Police officers & their SPCAs even more power to deny Due Process to their victims.
PLEASE read and understand the impact of this proposed law. And contact your Representative &
urge either a NO vote or table HB2409 until the DogFancy has had an opportunity for input.
