Dogs and the law:


The following pages have been created to help dog owners, potential dog owners and the general public to be aware of some of the laws relating to dogs that exist in England and Wales today.


Legislation in Scotland and N. Ireland may differ.


While every care has been taken to ensure the information contained is correct it must be noted that the contents of this website is for general information only and not to be treated as an extensive guide, it is not legal advice.


Legislation, particularly canine legislation at the present time, can and does change frequently, often as a result of “case law” and while every attempt has been made to ensure the content is correct and up to date, it is your responsibility to ensure you are aware of all current legislation.


If you find yourself directly affected by any legislation we recommend you seek professional legal advice.


If you need help finding suitable legal representation please contact us for advice.


If your dog is seized - do not sign anything unless you fully understand what it relates to.


We recommend that all dog owners take out adequate 3rd party liability insurance cover.
