A Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs spokesman has responded to claims that dog ownership laws are too "limited".
This Government is taking urgent action to protect the public from dangerous dogs.
We are changing the law so that owners can be prosecuted for dog attacks on private property and our anti-social behaviour reforms will give the police and local agencies more effective powers to deal with owners who fail to take responsibility for their dogs.
