Menacing Dogs

If your local council considers your dog poses a threat to any person, poultry, domestic animal or protected wildlife because of any observed or reported behaviour (or because of any characterists of your dogs breed), then it must be muzzled in any public place or private way in which it isn’t already confined, such as in a cage or vehicle.

It is also law that you must desex your dog when it is classified as menacing, which can done at your local vet, and advise anyone in possession of your dog, such as a dog walker, of the need for muzzling.
