Dangerous Dog Offences

Dogs are valued pets, but sometimes, they can be unpredictable. If your dog acts dangerously, it’s vital you seek legal advice as soon as possible.

Whether you're in your neighbour's garden, a public space or even your own home, it's your responsibility to control your dog. No matter what breed you own, it's against the law to own a dog that acts dangerously.

When it comes to dangerous dog offences, it doesn’t matter if your dog is old or a puppy. It doesn’t matter if they’ve never behaved in that way before. And it doesn’t matter if the incident happened on private land. That’s why, all too often, dangerous dog cases can result in convictions that seem incredibly unfair.

Under the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991, you could face charges you might not expect. For example, if your dog attacks a guide dog, you could be prosecuted for a hate crime. Or, if your dog upsets livestock, a farmer could be legally entitled to kill them.

With so many loopholes to navigate, speaking to a solicitor is essential. And with so much at stake, you’ll need to work with experienced lawyers who can create a strategy that succeeds in court.

At Slater Heelis, we have the expertise to make sure you and your dog receive the best legal protection available.
