BEWARE OF THE DOG-LAW! 

Here is a link to a slideshow created by Theo Stewart and Lisa Tenzin-Dolma, which explains the 2014 changes to Dog Laws and how these affect you.

The 2014 changes to the Dog Law have now taken effect. For information about how this can affect you and your dog, click here: The changes to the Dog Law, what you need to know and what you can do. (we disassociate ourselves from any adverts and any subsequent slides shown after our own presentation is finished).

 Our main purpose in creating this slide show is for professionals and groups to use the presentation to give talks - to inform rather than to scaremonger - and to help people with solutions.

The talks could be social with a break for tea/coffee, and a Q & A discussion section at the end if people so wish. If you are a professional and would like to receive the working version to use for your own presentation, please contact Lisa at the Dog Welfare Alliance at info@dogwelfarealliance.com or Theo at theo@dogidog.co.uk Here is the link for anybody who would like to include the presentation on their own website: http://www.slideshare.net/theokm/beware-of-the-dog-law3

 

Whilst being accurate in what we say, we don't intend to delve deeply into the law, but to look at the possible implications to dog owners. If using the presentation for talks and so that you have answers to questions, we suggest that you print off this government DEFRA document, Annex A, the section which lists the possible scenarios - Page 9: Dealing with irresponsible dog ownership: Practitioner's manual - Annexes A - D and also refer to the DEFRA manuals Dealing with irresponsible dog ownership: Practitioner's manual.
