Pet Bans By State And How They Affect Drivers With Pets

States with BSLs

States with BSLsWhether earned or not, some dog breeds have a bad reputation.  While many argue that makes a dog vicious isn’t the breed itself, it’s the owner raising the dog, many states and cities across the country have banned specific breeds.

Many carriers are beginning to take notice of the state’s breed specific laws (BSL) and are beginning to ban the breeds as well.

Below is a list of states, cities and counties that have BSLs, according to GameDog.
