Dutch Dog Bite Study Condemns Breed Specific Legislation

Published on September 7, 2010 by   ·   No Comments

As many of you will know, the Netherlands once operated a dangerous dogs law that was closely modelled on the UK’s 1991 Dangerous Dogs Act, in that it attempted to combat the problem of dog attacks by banning certain ‘types’ of dogs. This concept is known as breed specific legislation.

Well, ever the free thinkers (the type who don’t let media hype determine the laws of the land, but instead look toward REAL facts when legislating), the Netherlands no longer operates breed specific legislation and has instead pursued a more educational approach to canine laws. Now a new study has been carried out in the Netherlands which overwhelmingly concludes that a ban on dog breeds has zero effect as a means to reduce or eradicate dog bites.
