Dog Bites and Animal Attacks
The Dangerous Dogs Act was amended in May 2014 and the law applies to all dog owners in England and Wales.
It is a criminal offence for anyone in charge of a dog to allow it to be dangerously out of control in a public space or private property, allowing the police or local authority powers to seize a dangerously out of control dog in a public or private place. It is also a criminal offence for a dog to attack an assistance dog (guide dog).
