From what I have read so far the new legislation will make third party insurence compulsory for all dog owners, now this sounds like a great idea to me! Why would any dog owner object to insuring their dog to protect other people and dogs, the reality is that any of our dogs are capable of injuring others, even if not deliberately, and it is a responsible action to have insurence so that anyone affected can claim compensation.
I can only hope the legislation will cover dog to dog attacks and other animals!
Currently dog wardens can only suggest that a dog wears a muzzle, unless the dog is taken to court. Dog wardens to ask people to muzzle their dogs for no reason, and it is only right that this becomes enforcable.
I have already read comments from dog owners objecting to insuring their pets third party, how can it be responsible not to?
I look forward to hearing your views?
Insurence why would I need insurence?
