Dangerous Dogs - Future

The future

Dogs Trust is calling for a complete review of existing dog legislation and would welcome:

  • Clear, targeted legislation to identify and deal with those owners who fail to take appropriate action to control their dogs
  • A robust new law bringing together the many existing disparate threads of dog control and welfare legislation to simplify matters for both dog owners and enforcers
  • An introduction of appropriate penalties for irresponsible dog owners and legislation that contains preventative measures to raise awareness of the penalties that they could face for failing to control their dog and provide clarity for those implementing the law
  • Any new legislation to move away from the stereotyping for certain breeds
