Dangerous Dogs - New Legal Powers
Owners of aggressive dogs could be ordered to take action or face a fine of up to £20,000 under tough new laws to prevent dog attacks.
The new legal powers come into force on Monday and police and local authorities are being sent a Practitioners Manual detailing how they will work.
If a complaint has been made about a dog to the council or police, its owners could be ordered to do attend dog training classes, muzzle the dog, microchip it or neuter it.
There is also the possibility that owners would be ordered to make repairs to fencing to prevent their dog leaving their property.
