The Kennel Club has warned that dogs are being increasingly “marginalised” in society, and treated as a “nuisance” that must be controlled and restricted by the authorities.
Under the rising number of “dog control orders”, the animals are being banned from large areas of parkland, beaches and other public spaces on which they have traditionally been able to exercise.
The effect, according to the Kennel Club, has been to “ghettoise” the animals, pushing them out of some neighbourhoods and forcing them into increasingly congested, designated areas.
What a shocker. Isn’t this how the government deals with everything? Why should dogs be exempt?
Mrs Kisko said those that suffer under them are responsible owners, who obey the regulations, rather than irresponsible ones who flout them.
Yes, again, just SOP.
Mrs Kisko added: “Authorities think they can just bring in an order and it will be ‘job done’. But all they have done is move a problem. It tends to ghettoise.”
You’re preaching to the converted here, Mrs Kisko.
