A number of ASRs and Branch Officers have attended the events across the country during this and previous series of seminars and the feedback has been 100% positive.
These popular seminars for professionals are half day talks concentrating on ‘dangerous dog’ offences and the legislation dealing with such attacks and prosecutions. These half day seminars are attended by Police Officers, Dog Wardens, Lawyers and others involved in dealing with Dog Control and Dog Law.
