Dog Control Advice

The control of dogs is a serious issue and ultimately it is the keeper’s and/or the person in charge of the dog who is responsible for ensuring the dog remains under control at all times. 

Report a Dog Complaint/Concern

The control of dogs is regulated under The Dogs (NI) Order 1983 (as amended) and the Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act (NI) 2011 Legislation.  Contravention of this legislation is a criminal offence which can often lead to large fines and in extreme cases custodial sentences on conviction.
