The Kennel Club, an organisation that I have a great deal of time for, is wanting to strengthen the Dangerous Dogs Act. Laura Vallance has been in the Assembly to talk about it.
Many owners of dogs that are dangerous avoid the ban on specific breeds by mixing illegal breeds with legal ones as cross breeds avoid the ban.
Dogs from legal breeds can, however, be seized too if they are dangerously out of control.
Indeed seizures and prosecutions have increased massively in the last decade. Deaths and serious mauling from dogs in Wales and the UK as a whole have increased too.
Possible actions include registration of dogs, micro-chipping, an amnesty for surrender of illegal dogs and amendment of the Dangerous Dogs Act.
The problem is multi-faceted, interlinked, as it often is, with social deprivation.
The Kennel Club is to be congratulated on their work to date. Action is needed.
