'Joe the Vet' in the UK has set up this petition. I know some were asking if a petition would be set up.

Keep in mind a personal letter to the Kennel Club and CKCS breed club as well as your MP if you live in the UK is more powerful than signing an online petition so be sure to do both if you can and you feel strongly on this issue.

From Coldwetnose blog:

Petition to change breed standards:
http://www.thepetitionsite.com/2/make-the-kennel-club-change-their-breed-stand


Dogs Trust are suggesting you write to:

Lord Rooker, Minister for Sustainable Food and Farming and Animal Health at Defra,
Nobel House
17 Smith Square
London
SW1P 3JR

However the blog notes that DT also is listed as 'supporting the KC's aims' over on the KC website on the film.

What a great idea! Are US citizens allowed to sign the petition, or is this UK-focused?

I don't think it matters.
