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.

Fantastic service! Kyle fixed our problem within minutes and it’s been brilliant ever since. Parker our 9 month old English Springer Spaniel was awful on the lead and within 24 hours I was able to take him for a walk on my own and he didn’t pull once. Would definitely recommend and will be using again for recall training.Emma Cawood 31 Mar 2019

We have had dogs for over 20 years and never needed to call in a trainer before but the aggression our 4 year old rescue Doberman was showing was getting out of hand. When Rob came, he instantly assessed our dog ( and us ) and gave us a simple but very affective method to correct this behaviour. It worked practically immediately and has continued to work in the days after. Hopefully we won’t need Rob again as he has given us the tools to control our very adorable but feisty dog, but we wouldn’t hesitate to call on him again.thanks Rob ( and Ruth) Vicki, Ian and Stan xxxVicki Tams 17 Mar 2019
Can’t believe the change in our dog in less than half an hour my dog stopped his constant barking best nights sleep in 5 weeks since we got Ernie. No more stress for us and Ernie he is like a different dog, my partner came home from been away a couple of days and could not believe the difference Ying and Yang. I would recommend Rob to anyone life changing !!!Annette Cullingworth 15 Mar 2019
I met Rob for the first time today with my 9 month old lab . I was a bit sceptical has ave been through lots of training sessions with various trainers and not much success. Rob was straight talking, no nonsense and extremely knowledgeable. He had my lab walking with him, obedient and showing him respect within minutes, something I had been trying months to do. With his guidance and training (within the session ) I took Jess on a walk later in the day, following his techniques and advice I had the best walk ever! No lunging or pulling ! Exciting to develop on this and then looking forward to booking in another session for recall . Thank you !Amy Robers 09 Mar 2019
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
