The Kennel Club, the biggest dog welfare organisation in the UK, will lead discussions on the importance of better investigation into dog bite events, in meeting London, W1 (26 January).
The assembly, which may help determine the future of dangerous dog laws, is the very first of its type in bringing together specialists from across the veterinary and medical fields, law enforcement, local authorities, government representatives, professors, sociologists, in addition to animal welfare charities to investigate strategies to move forward having a strategy on dangerous dogs.
Now is too little comprehensive data to explain dog bite events happen no completely successful in the very first place and, as such or evidence-based instruction measures are being executed to reduce them.
These perspectives will be presented by the Kennel Club in the assembly in the initial step towards planning and executing a strategy to ensure government support for later, and greater data collection, evidence-based instruction strategies.
“The Kennel Club is firmly of the perspective that dangerous dog law as it stands is next to worthless and has done nothing whatsoever to minimize how many dog biting events to the other side of Great Britain. Rather it demonises specific strains according to not scientific evidence and stereotypes.
“There are a variety of variables which lead to dog biting episodes and every episode is unique to its conditions, and we want precise data to create a more dependable picture of the prevalence of dog bites as well as their causes.
“The problems being presented in the assembly completely tie in with all the Kennel Club’s A Dog’s Life manifesto, that has been established to guide an incoming government how to boost dog welfare.
