The Government has announced plans to extend legal protection over dog attacks to cover incidents on private property. The move will be a boost for postmen and women, health visitors and others who call at private addresses but have not been covered by the law if they are bitten by a dog.
Ministers have also announced compulsory microchipping of dogs, with owners being given three years to comply. It follows a consultation last year on issues surrounding dangerous dogs.
