Dangerous Dogs: Education and Legislation
Posted: 
Friday, November 25, 2016

Various municipalities in Canada have developed legislation to address public safety concerns about dogs that bite. Speakers at this workshop will discuss problems associated with legislation that bans specific breeds and provide information on alternative approaches to the issue of dangerous dogs. The workshop will offer information on identifying dangerous dogs, risk factors for dog bites, the effectiveness of interventions, and the impact of breed–specific legislation on dogs and humane societies. 

Speakers include Dr. Alice Crook, Dr. Shauna Richards, Jenna Lane, Chelsea Tuff-Hopkie, Atlantic Veterinary College; and Marla Somersall and Donna Marie, PEI Humane Society.
