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:
