Taking the lead on responsible dog ownership – Gazette – Jun’15

Back in February 2015, Hanne and her team organised a workshop presented by solicitor Trevor Cooper – the UK’s top legal expert on dog law.  The focus was on responsible dog ownership and what every good dog owner should know.  This workshop was sponsored by Tring Neighbourhood Watch and marked the first in a series of workshops in collaboration with the Berkhamsted & Tring Dog Watch Scheme.  This scheme encourages dog walkers to be vigilant while out with their pet, and to report any suspicious behaviour they may spot.

A supporter of Dog Watch since 2009, Hanne recently spoke to the Gazette about the pitfalls faced by owners in the wake of recent dog law changes, and to raise awareness of the Dog Watch scheme which is being relaunched this year.
