The time to change Dog Law / Legislation and Dog Licencing within the UK

In February 2011 our pet dog Lola the Rottweiler, passed away as a result of serious injuries caused by a Staffordshire Bull Terrier attack on West Street in Hucknall. This has to STOP. Far too many dogs / people are suffering dog attacks and this is not being actioned by the police or authorities. Stop blaming the dogs behaviour and start acting on the owners. Any breed of dog can attack. All owners have a responsibility for this NOT to happen.

Give the police the authority to prosecute dog owners who do not abide by set guide lines in public places, e.g. keeping dogs on leads and under control at all times.
Enforce new laws with regards to dog ownership and dangerous breeds and bring back Dog Licences for all dog owners with “on the spot checks”. Have this scheme policed by Community Support officers or dog wardens and backed by the authorities.
