Whilst the majority of dogs are kept under control and do not represent a risk to the public, dog attacks are on the increase, and children and animals, including guide dogs, are often the victims.
The Welsh Government is determined to do more to protect Welsh communities and this draft Bill is a key step towards making that happen.
Our proposals focus on early intervention when a dog is out of control and involve close working with dog owners to improve their dog’s behaviour. We believe that by using legislation we can make a significant difference to the incidents of dog attacks in Wales.
