DANGEROUS DOG ACT SECTION 3
Many dog owners are unaware that the Dangerous Dog Act concerns their dog as most people think it only refers to banned breeds such as Pit Bull type. This is simply not true as the law covers all breeds.
Section 3 makes it a CRIMINAL OFFENCE for any dog of any breed from Chihuahua to Great Dane to be dangerously out of control in a public place and the offence is committed both whoever was in charge of the dog and also the owner even if the owner was not there at the time.
The law defines “dangerously out of control” as "any occasion on which there are grounds for reasonable apprehension that a dog will injure any person". In plain English this means that the dog does not actually have to bite someone to be called out of control. If the person thinks the dog may injure them and is frightened then this is breaking the law. So you may have a dangerous dog without realising it.
DANGEROUS DOG ACT SECTION 3 CHANGED IN 2014
In 2014 the law was amended and now includes private property which is both the front and back garden and the home. The law was changed so that Postmen or anybody delivering or calling to their home is protected. Even now over 40 Postmen are bitten every week.
This puts a huge responsibility on dog owners as they may have a dangerous dog in the eyes of the law and it applies to anybody coming into your garden or your home. This could be a neighbour or a child and the only possible exception is if it’s a burglar or trespasser but this only applies to your home not the garden.

SOME OF OUR GOOGLE REVIEWS
Rob has done a training session with me and my husky this afternoon and it was amazing. I was expecting to be dissapointed as my husky thinks he rules the roost but Rob had him obeying my commands in less than 10 minutes. I am looking forward to more training for us both. Thank you.wolf craft 07 Feb 2019
Fantastic service! Our yappy Chihuahuas behaviour was corrected within five minutes. So simple, effective and it makes perfect sense. We are amazed!! It was clearly explained to us how and why to correct in this way and the results were immediate. Cannot recommend these enough! We are actually looking forward to going for a walk tomorrow!! Thanks guysHannah Dargan 25 Jan 2019
We are so pleased with the training given to our new puppy - we cannot believe the difference. The change in Ralph after one session is amazing and we cannot thank you enough. We would definitely recommend Leeds Dog School without a doubt! Ralph is no longer a little mischievous rascal - thank you!!Jessica S 22 Jan 2019
He shared his knowledge with us very well and was very clear with what to do. We had been trying training tricks that we had seen online for weeks before and nothing worked. However, within not even a minute of him teaching our puppy, she was completely obeying. We will definitely be back when we want to teach her recall!!! Thank you 😊Amy Cashmore 20 Jan 2019
After an initial telephone conversation with a lovely gentleman at Leeds Dog School , Rob came to see our 9 month old Labrador who was jumping up, stealing food, and making it difficult for me to leave the room without him barking or trying to follow me. Rob had an immediate impact . Everything he said would happen actually happened !!Kathryn Shaw 13 Jan 2019
Rob has just been around to our house wonderful knowledge and is very down to earth bloke. Would highly recommend him to anyone our bulldog showed an instant improvement and we now have the tools to carry on and progress with the training Thanks RobJoe Emmo 05 Jan 2019
We have a 9week old golden retriever who was generally being a naughty puppy but we didn’t really know how to address the bad behaviour (biting, constant crying in the crate, jumping up etc.).We found Leeds Dog School on-line and given the 5star reviews from everyone, we decided to give them a call. A few days later Rob come round and literally within 10minutes we noticed a change in our puppies behaviour through us leaning simple but effective techniques.Adam Juniper 02 Jan 2019
Rob visited me and my 13 month Cocker Spaniel this afternoon and he was brilliant. He helped us set up the foundations of training so we can eventually let him off the lead. I instantly noticed a difference in his behaviour and I now enjoy walking him without him virtually pulling my arm off! I would recommend Rob to anyone, he really is excellent.Jan Brook 21 Dec 2018
