Can anyone please advise what action can be taken against owners who let their dogs off their leads in public areas who are unable to control their dogs and who act in a threatening and intimidating manner towards others? I understand that Southwark Council
can issue £50 on the spot fines to anyone who does not have their dog on a lead but, given the absence of a police presence on most estates, how can these orders be enforced? My partner and I had a very unpleasant exchange with a young 'woman' last night who regularly exercises her Pit Bull/Staff type dog on our estate yet who does not live here, never has the dog on a lead and who clearly cannot control her animal!
