Kennel Club applauds microchipping consultation but rues missed opportunity to better protect public
Press Release 23 April 12
The Kennel Club has commended the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs’ (Defra) plans to consult on the introduction of compulsory microchipping which will help to crack down on the owners of dangerous dogs, but has also labelled it a missed opportunity to better protect the public by preventing dog attacks before they occur.
Whilst it welcomes local authority and community projects to promote responsible dog ownership and the government’s commitment to invest in such measures, the Kennel Club does not feel that £50,000 will make a real impact in improving the current situation. The Kennel Club’s Charitable Trust has made several grants for such schemes, with individual projects alone costing in the region of £10,000. £50,000 shared throughout the UK is therefore unlikely to give local authorities sufficient resources towards improving measures to prevent dog bite incidents and protect the public from aggressive dogs and their owners.
