It's against the law to let a dog be dangerously out of control anywhere, such as:
-In a public place
-In a private place, for example a neighbour's house or garden
-In the owner's home
The law applies to all dogs.
Out of control
Your dog is considered dangerously out of control if it:
-Makes someone worried that it might injure them
A court could also decide that your dog is dangerously out of control if either of the following apply:
-It attacks someone's animal
-The owner of an animal thinks they could be injured if they tried to stop your dog attacking their animal
-A farmer is allowed to kill your dog if it's worrying their livestock
You can get an unlimited fine or be sent to prison for up to 6 months (or both) if your dog is dangerously out of control.
You may not be allowed to own a dog in the future and your dog may be destroyed.
