We’ve all been there. You’re out walking your dog when suddenly and out of nowhere, a dog comes charging up to you. Quite often, the owner isn’t even in sight. For a lot of people this scenario is a real nightmare especially if their dog is or could be reactive.
⚠️The Law Regarding Dogs⚠️ In Public
In the UK, the law in regards to how dogs should behave in public is specific but very few people actually know the law or realise they could be breaking it. Since the changes to the law in May 2014, a dog no longer has to bite to be considered dangerously out of control. Therefore and because of this, letting a dog off-lead anywhere without that dog having a bomb proof recall could in fact put you and your dog in conflict with the authorities.
