Bateson Report Calls for Dangerous Dogs Act Reform

Published on January 14, 2010 by   ·   No Comments

An independent report on dog health and welfare today called for legislation on dangerous dogs to be updated to move away from current breed-specific legislation, which is failing to protect both humans and animals.

Professor Bateson’s report focused on the welfare issues relating to the breeding of dogs and includes a specific recommendation that “the Dangerous Dogs Act should be amended to apply to all dogs that have been shown to be dangerous rather than to specified breeds and should address the problem of dogs being bred and reared specifically as weapons or for fighting.”
