Britain – Promising news for dogs labeled as “dangerous” in Britain.
Yesterday, a bill passed successfully through the House of Lords – a bill to put more accountability on dog owners, and less on the dogs.
The Dog Conrol bill is designed to overhaul the Dangerous Dogs Act
From the Wandsworth Dog Control Service manager and DDASG Chairman, Mark Callis,
“Our members all know from personal experience that the aggressive, problematic dogs are always the ones which have been treated badly, neglected, or, in some of the worst cases, deliberately trained to intimidate others. This Bill would give us the powers we need to tackle the root cause of the country’s dangerous dog issues – bad owners.”
If the bill continues on with the support of the Commons, it will place the blame where it belongs – on irresponsible dogs owners.
Thousands have shown their support on a petition which promotes the Dog Control Bill.
This is excellent progress – placing blame where it belongs and holding those individual accountable.
Good luck in the final stages!
