Dangerous dogs legislation fails to protect the public

The Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee’s report Controlling dangerous dogs calls for a full-scale review of current dog control legislation and policy to better protect the public.

The inquiry was launched to investigate Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) and wider dog control, amid concerns that the current approach was not protecting the public adequately.

The Committee said an alternative dog control model should be developed that focused on prevention though education, early intervention, and consistently robust sanctions for offenders.
