It’s against the law in the UK to let any kind of dog be dangerously out of control in a public place or in a private place where the dog isn’t allowed to be (e.g. a neighbour’s house or garden without permission).
A dog is considered dangerously out of control if it injures someone or makes someone worried that it might injure them.
The maximum sentence for being in charge of a dog which causes injury while dangerously out of control in a public place, under the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991, is two years.
A number of dog breeds are completely banned. They are:
- Pit Bull Terrier
- Japanese Tosa
- Dogo Argentino
- Fila Braziliero
The maximum penalty for having a banned dog is a £5,000 fine and/or 6 months in prison. The dog will also be destroyed.
