Top Lodge Dancing Dogs held a Dog Law Seminar at Riddings, Derbyshire today. The speaker was Trevor Cooper of Cooper & Co Solicitors, who specialises in the law concerning dogs. Visit his website for more information. DogLaw
Despite a beautifully hot and sunny day any cars containing dogs were given a nice shady spot to park, and all were content.
There was a good attendance as many people were keen to learn as much as they could from this knowledgeable man.The day led to many interesting questions being asked, but the overall impression was how the law can actually help a dog owner give their dogs the best in life, not seek punishment, although there still remains many grey areas where you have to trust the judgement of others.
Trevor asked those present how many comply with the Law about dog tags? The response was quite surprising. An interesting subject for discussion which dispelled many myths but showed clearly that it is in both the dog and owners interest to keep to the law and display the name and address of the owner on all dog tags and ensure they are attached to the dog's collar. This is the biggest aid to help a lost dog back to its home.
Top Lodge Dancing Dogs would like to thank everyone who attended the Seminar, and, of course, Trevor Cooper for a very informative afternoon.
