Dangerous Dogs Consultation

Last Monday the Government announced a further consultation on changes to dangerous dogs laws.

The key proposals are: To extend existing dangerous dogs law in England to cover all private property; that Police will no longer have to seize and kennel dogs pending the outcome of court proceedings where the police do not consider the dog presents a risk to the public; the fee of £24 (first set in 1991) payable by the owner for placing prohibited dogs on the Index of Exempted Dogs to be raised; additional funding for the Association of Chief Police Officers to support the training that they provide for Dog Legislation Officers; and new regulations under the Animal Welfare Act 2006 on compulsory microchipping. A consultation is ongoing and will close on 15 June 2012. Interested parties can respond to the consultation

  1. This badly thought out and rushed law needs amending lets hope for commonsense. In the UK we need someone Like Dawne Deeley to put the case of pit bulls and stop the press led lynch mobs.
