How you manage your dog when strangers come to your door needs to be a top priority in order to stay on the right side of the law when the new Dangerous Dogs Act comes into force on Tuesday, May 13.
This advice is just one of several points covered in a new free fact sheet published by the rescue and rehoming charity The National Animal Welfare Trust (NAWT).
NAWT Chief Executive Clare Williams said: “Owning a dog is a huge responsibility and should not be taken lightly, however by taking some time to think about what these changes mean to you and your dog, you will be taking steps to keep everyone safe and avoid ending up in a position that no one wants to find themselves in.”
