    I was about to roll my eyes and say "here we go..." but that article actually makes it sound like they're targetting irresponsible owners rather than the poor dogs that might 'look suspect'. It's about time! And I hope this proves as successful as it has in the states and especially Calgary where pit bulls are very much allowed and dog bites are extremely low.

    Sounds like they are targeting irresponsible owners.
    I liked the piece about going into schools and teaching children to be save around dogs, and
    Sadly innocent dogs will get caught up in this and be PTS - however I do think this is the best 'crackdown' I've read about.
    I hope it is sucessfull and has long term effects on the ownership of dogs in the area.

    It sounds brilliant. What is the point of having dog laws if either people are not aware of them or they are not enforced at all.

    Now this is the sort of thing we need, a scheme that targets the owners rather than the dog itself. I am liking the idea of educating children the correct way to act around a dog as well.

    So what will the police actually do? Go door to door?? All the idiots will do is keep their dogs locked up in the house for a few months.

    I wouldn't think there will be any shortage of people reporting these kind of owners and search warrants issued for police to enter houses five!

    It seems like the most sane and responsible education program I have heard of, but because of the DDA, some absolutely lovely dogs will be PTS.

    I think that not only dog owners, but non dog owners should also know more about not this law but laws in general.
