Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you wit this.
No, the Police can not take the dog away
They would need to issue proceedings against you and get a Destruction Order against the dog
Then and only then can they take it away
But usually if the dog is well behaved you would be subject to a dog control order
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Dear Alex, Thank you. Can he still report it to the police even if he was not injured but just scared by the dog. ***** *****
Yes. The law requires that you have control of your dog in a public place, private place or your own home.
If the dog was out of control (and it nipped the delivery man) then there is POTENTIAL.
I am not saying anything will happen, but potentially it could
Does that clarify?
Yes. I will come back should I need further advice.
