We appreciate that the issue of irresponsible ownership of dogs is causing concern to many local communities. It is not just a problem of dangerous breeds of dogs, but one of irresponsible dog owners. Those owners need to be held to account and stopped from ruining people's lives. We have been engaged with key interested parties both inside and outside Government, including police and animal welfare organisations, concerning measures to promote more responsible dog ownership. It is essential to make sure that better public protection does not place unnecessary burdens on the vast majority of dog owners in this country who act responsibly and care for their pets. We are considering a range of measures to promote more responsible ownership of dogs and will shortly announce measures to make our communities safer.
