Burglary in street name/location

New Government guidelines for XL bully has come into play since February 

If you own an XL bully

We know that many XL bully type dogs are much-loved family pets. To keep them from being seized, you'll need to make sure:

  • you have your certificate of exemption
  • your dog is microchipped and neutered (by the deadlines provided)
  • they are kept on a lead and muzzled in a public place, including in cars
  • they are kept in a secure place so they cannot escape
  • you have third party public liability insurance cover for your dog
  • You also need to be at least 16 years old to own or walk an XL bully type.

    You'll also need to tell Defra if you move address (except for the permitted 30 days when your dog can be kept at another address within a 12 month period), is exported or if your dog passes away.
