Response has been provided to the Scottish Government consultation on Steps to Improve the Operational Effectiveness of the Control of Dogs (Scotland) Act 2010.  Details of the consultation can be found here.

The response from REHIS indicated support for the proposals, to provide for an offence of obstruction and provisions to allow for service of fixed penalty notices, to establish a national database of dog control notices, and to clarify that dog control notices served in one local authority area can be enforced in other local authority areas.  The full REHIS response will be published along with all other responses on the Scottish Government website.
