Dog Attacks

Sadly, every year we hear of more than 100 guide dogs being attacked by other dogs. Attacks on guide dogs are extremely distressing for their owners. Not only is the attack itself traumatic, but if the dog has to stop working, then their owner may find it impossible to leave home on their own.

We successfully campaigned for measures to bring an end to attacks on guide dogs through encouraging responsible dog ownership, compulsory microchipping of dogs, and the introduction of tougher sanctions for the owners of dogs that attack a guide dog.
