XL Bullies and Exempt Dogs
From 31st December 2023 new legislation has come into place regarding XL Bullies and other exempt dogs. We are pleased that our insurer has confirmed that these dogs will be able to run free in our field, but under the strict guidance below. You must not enter the premises with an exempt dog unless following each of the following rules:
- The dog is registered with the index of exempted dog (IED) and a copy of the life certificate is obtained and provided to us in the event of a claim.
- A copy of the public liability insurance certificate for the dog is obtained and provided to us in the event of a claim.
- The dog handler ratio is 1:1 with their handler at all times
- The dog is Neutered
- The dog is Micro Chipped
- The dog is muzzled at all times* - see below
- The field is private property with no public access passing through
- The field is securely fenced and locked so the dog cannot escape
- The dog is kept on a lead until the gate is shut when entering the field
- The dog is put back on a lead before opening the gate to leave the field
*The dog must be muzzled at all times until inside the field during a booked appointment, with the gate closed and locked. There must be a 1:1 handler to dog ratio. If you have more than one dog, even if not exempt there must be another handler. When these are true, the dog can run free without a muzzle.
