Government Makes Dogs Dinner of Dangerous Dogs Consultation

Less than a week after announcing their public consultation call on dangerous dogs, the Government has announced that one of the much touted ideas – compulsory insurance for all dogs – has been ditched. The U-turn is not only embarrassing back track, it also highlights the ineptitude of those charged with the task of issuing dog related legislation. Not only that, given the rationale for the about turn – citing the problem of only so-called ‘responsible’ owners being prepared to take out the insurance, then it must, surely, also knock on the head the whole idea of compulsory microchipping too, as the exact same logic applies.
