I don’t know about you, every time I do any sort of research into animal/dog law and regulations there always seem to be new developments, updates and tweaks. If researching legislations has taught me anything it’s that it’s not the most exciting thing to do in an evening let alone getting your head around them.
One of the first individuals I had the pleasure of interviewing on my website was Trevor Cooper who is a solicitor that specialises in dog law. He works full time for Dogs Trust and in his free time he hosts seminars across the country on the law involving dogs with Dog Law Ltd.
Dog Law has recently developed new ‘webinars’ that focus on many aspects of the law on dogs from Dangerous Dogs Act 1991, Animal Welfare Act 2006 to the Dogs Act 1871. Trevor also focuses on ‘New Developments’ that have been happening recently, most notably on the Dangerous Dogs Act.

Personally I couldn’t recommend them more, for those lucky enough to see Trevor in action he never fails to impress and the same thing goes for these webinars. It is essential for professionals who work in the dog world from dog show handlers to police officers.

New statistics were released at the end of May by The Kennel Club; the research, carried out by the UK’s largest lost and found database for microchipped pets: Petlog. Petlog state that 46% of dog owners are unaware that compulsory microchipping is to be made in England while, out of the other 54% only one in five knew it was compulsory in England by 2016.
