If you own a dog you are responsible for its behaviour and any damage or injury it causes.
The government introduced legislation in 1991 to protect the public from aggressive dogs. Owners of dogs recognised as dangerous breeds are liable for making sure they are registered and kept under control in public with the use of a lead or a muzzle.
If you have been attacked and injured by a dog, you may be able to claim compensation. Call us on 0800 180 4076 or complete the online form and we’ll call you back.
