Sorry, you are in Scotland. I'll opt out.
Hi thank you your message, this is not a common area but normally such attacks coincide with attacks on an individual or you getting injured when you try to intervene and therefore the most likely type of solicitors to deal with this are personal injury lawyers. I hope this helps, if you can please accept my answer and rate me 5 stars (in the top right of your screen) then Just Answer will credit me for helping you today.
I understand but there is not a specific type of lawyer for dog on dog attacks. Such a matter would normally be dealt with under the simple procedure. Simple procedure is a court process designed to provide a speedy, inexpensive and informal way to resolve disputes. A claim is made in the sheriff court by a claimant. The party against whom the claim is made is known as a respondent. The final decision in a claim is made by a sheriff or a summary sheriff. You do not need to use a solicitor to use the simple procedure, but you can do if you wish. You can complete the claim form online here: http://www.scotcourts.gov.uk/civilonline
You should then print it and either post it or take it to the sheriff court that should deal with your claim. Part 3 here explains how to bring a claim: http://www.scotcourts.gov.uk/docs/default-source/rules-and-practice/rules-of-court/sheriff-court/simple-procedure-rules/schedule-1/03-part-3.pdf?sfvrsn=6
