Make it mandatory for all dogs to be on leads on public rights of way.
It has become apparently during covid-19 that there have been a surge in dog attacks on live stock and people’s pets (horses) on public rights of way which go across farmers land. I want the government to make it mandatory for all dogs to be on leads on public footpaths, bridleways and byways.
I would like to see all dogs be kept on leads on public rights of way which are specifically public footpaths, bridleways and byways. Particularly those that go across farmers land which contain live stock and or people’s pets (horses). Farmers or land owners should have a right to remove any out of control animals from their fields. Extendable leads are in abundance, there is no need for a dog to be off a lead in this day and age, particularly when live stock and pets are at risk.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
