The Kennel Club supports the general principles cited of encouraging responsible dog ownership and strengthening the law for tackling dogs that are dangerously out of control, and hopes to see improved measures to more effectively break patterns of bad behaviour and tackle the owners themselves.

Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary commented: “The introduction of measures such as penalties for keepers of dogs who allow them to harm lawful visitors to their home is a positive step in curbing irresponsible dog ownership and encouraging better control of dogs.”

“After meeting the Defra Minister, Lord de Mauley and his team, we are reassured that the department have taken our comments on board and will address them accordingly.”
