In the 10 years up to 2016 there has been a 76% increase inn dangerous dog attacks in England; two thirds of the fatalities were children.  It is now thought that 3% of dogs show aggression to humans every week.  The Battersea Dogs and Cats Home has investigated the factors likely to cause an attack: an overwhelming majority of behaviour experts stated that breed was irrelevant or only slightly important in determining a dog's aggression.  Instead, 86% thought that socialisation - or the lack of it - was integral in a dog's behaviour.  Nearly all said that adding more breeds to Section 1 of the Dangerous Dogs Act would have no effect on reducing the number of dog attacks.  Is it time to look again at the current legilsation with its emphasis on specific breeds?
