Dog leads reminder from welfare experts after attacks

Owners have been reminded to keep dogs under proper control after several incidents involving aggressive dogs in the space of a week. Stroud District Council Animal Welfare Officers have dealt with reports of three incidents in the district, and have issued a reminder about keeping dogs on leads. The incidents involved several off-lead dogs attacking an on-lead dog, an off-lead dog being allowed to approach an on-lead dog and receiving injuries, and a dog straying onto a public footpath without its owner and attacking another dog being walked on the lead.

If your on-lead dog is injured by another which is off the lead, the incident can be reported to the council. It's important to check both dogs for wounds and photograph them, not exercise the dog to avoid causing more damage to wounds, seek veterinary treatment as soon as possible and take down the other party's details in case they are needed for insurance or prosecution.

Severe dog-on-dog attacks should be reported on 01453 754478 or at environmental.health@stroud.gov.uk

Under the Dogs Act 1871, action can be taken to deal with a dog-on-dog attack, however a single incident is unlikely to be sufficient to prove that a dog is dangerous. If Magistrates find that a dog is dangerous, they may order its owner to keep it under proper control, including measures such as muzzling, keeping it on a lead, excluding it from specified areas and any other measures of control that they consider necessary. They may even order the destruction of the dog.

Anyone who has been attacked by a dog themselves should report the incident immediately to Gloucestershire Police on 101, as should dog attacks on livestock.
