NEWS

Do you know which laws are relevant to you and your pet?

From April 2016 ALL dogs over the age of 8 weeks (in England) must be microchipped.

The Animal Welfare Act 2006: this Act has brought together and updated all of the main legislation that had existed since 1911, and introduced a welfare offence imposing a duty of care on any person responsible for an animal to take reasonable steps to ensure the needs of that animal are met.

The Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act 2005: Local Authorities were given the power to issue dog control orders on any open space, including failing to remove dog faeces, not keeping a dog on a lead and taking more than a specified number of dogs on to land.

The Control of Dogs Order 1992: Any dog in a public place must wear a collar with the name and address of the owner engraved or written on it or engraved on a tag.

The Road Traffic Act 1988: It is an offence to have a dog on a designated road without it being held on a lead.

Dangerous Dogs Act 1991: From October 2014 pet owners can be fined up to £20,000 if they fail to take steps preventing dog attacks.
