This is a survey about commercial dog kennels to help inform the development of a new bylaw in Colchester. For the purposes of this survey, a commercial kennel is defined as any land, building, structure, outdoor run, or other facility where dogs are kept or bred for commercial purposes. A kennel may include overnight boarding facilities, breeding facilities, dog daycares, and training establishments. All kennels are presumed to have an outdoor area for dogs.

This survey is part of a broader consultation initiative that will involve stakeholders, business-owners, professionals, relevant community groups, and the general public. Check the Municipal Newsletter and website (www.colchester.ca) for information and events planned for the New Year. 

This survey includes 9 multiple-choice questions and one long-answer question and takes about 5 minutes to complete.
