Dangerous dogs

A dangerous dog is classed as one that is dangerously out of control and you are worried that it might bite, or has bitten a person.

If a dog attacks another animal we are unfortunately unable to help. This is a private matter between the owners of the animals. The Police can deal with incidents where dogs are dangerous towards people. Further information can be found on the Avon and Somerset Police website. Call the Police on 101 if you want to report a dangerous dog.
