    The ineffective dangerous dogs act.

    "Dangerous Dogs Act has never worked" - Andrew Rosindell MP

    The Dangerous Dogs Act has "never really worked" because it only deals with certain breeds, a Tory MP has said as he called for a review of the law.

    Andrew Rosindell, a Staffordshire bull terrier owner, said resources should be used to deal with any dangerous dogs, not just the four banned breeds.

    His call follows the death on Thursday of three-year-old Dexter Neal, who was mauled by an American bulldog in Essex.

    After another innocent child has been killed by a pet dog we have to ask ourselves if The Dangerous Dogs Act needs changing ?

    What would YOU do to tighten up this act, if you think it needs tightening up ?

    Of course the main problem here is the fact that the owners do not care if their dog is regularly aggressive.

    Licencing will help but many will just not get licenced and I do not know if these people are followed up as they should be, and fined if they do not get a licence for their dog.

    I am not a dog-owner but I do see that there are certain breeds that are much more liable to attack a stranger or their dog without any reason.

    At least, The Dangerous Dogs Act should cover many more animals than it does.

    Officially there are only four breeds of dog that are banned but many crosses made from these dogs can also be banned too.

    Make sure you know which breeds of dog are illegal in the UK:

    •Pit Bull Terriers /Pit Bull type dogs. Pit Bull types may include the following dog breeds: ...
    •Japanese Tosa. The Japanese Tosa can weigh anywhere from 80-200lbs. ...
    •Dogo Argentino. ...
    •Fila Braziliero.

    Personally I find that there are many more dogs that will attack if they are not kept strictly under control.

    It is a very large list and that is why the government have not gone further in their banning orders.

    What do you good folks think about this ?

    Those dogs are basically hunting dogs and their natural instinct is to fight and kill.

    There are many more dogs that will bite anybody or attack a child if they are allowed out of the pack-leader's control.

    The "pack-leader" is YOU.

    I think that minimum that should be done is that any dog that is powerful and dangerous should be muzzled in public. Which actual dogs they should be is another story.

    Well said Angie, but I would more like to call it the "Alpha leader" as all dogs require one if they are to be controlled.

    Something definitely needs to be done here as far too many children are being mauled and killed by dogs that the owners consider to be harmless.

    Thanks Papa.

    I have always thought that to a man or woman every dog owner thinks that his or her dog is just a big pussycat. Laughing

    OR... am I just mixing my metaphors here ?

    No, I do know what you are getting at. Very Happy

    It is true that almost to a man or woman many dog owners never see the potential for danger in these powerful dogs. Some even go about with them in public on a string to try to look hard.

    I only wish that dog owners, that are the alpha leaders to any dangerous dog, would know that away from the alpha leaders' influence many dogs only see other people, and especially young children and other strange dogs, or cats, as quarry and nothing else.
