Petition Remove breed specific legislation. Consider alternative methods for dog control.
Remove breed specific provisions in the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991. We believe this legislation is unfair, not fit for purpose and has not had the desired results of limiting dog bites. It has had the result of family pets being destroyed, causing devastation to many families.
I believe that the current legislation is causing more harm than good. I have seen horrific accounts of how this legislation is being enforced.
I believe that it is primarily the rearing of a dog that determines the behaviour and not the breed. Dogs shouldn't be destroyed because of their breed.
