Dangerous breeds of dog, 2008

Submitted by: NCW Great Ayton Branch

The National Council of Women in Conference assembled, concerned that dogs of certain breeds have been responsible for deaths and serious injuries in domestic situations, urges Her Majesty’s Government to undertake a reappraisal of the Dangerous Dogs legislation, especially with regard to:
(a) the unsuitability of domestic premises for such breeds, both for the welfare of the dog and for the safety of the public;
(b) the desirability of permitting ownership of such breeds only on the granting of a licence, subject to stringent conditions including official regular monitoring of the dog’s health and behaviour. Reaffirmed 2010
