Dog laws get shake up

The New Zealand Veterinary Association president John Maclachlan says the existing act gives local authorities effective tools to deal with errant dogs and their owners.

"Wouldn’t it be a logical first step to ensure enforcement of the current regulation before we leap into introducing yet more measures that may be similarly inconsistently applied," Mr Maclachlan says.


Public submissions on the discussion paper on improving public safety close on March 31.
