Recent Dog Biting Incident


It has come to our attention that an adult got bitten on the leg by a dog only the other day.

Though this incident thankfully is very rare and from the dogs we usually see they are very friendly and socialized, however, once is enough.

If you know that your dog is antisocial we urge you to please keep your dog firstly on a lead and secondly muzzled to avoid any future incidents as it could be a child next time.

If anyone encounters any issues or concerns of similar nature, please report the incident to the police and if possible take a photo of the dog.

Even for socialized dogs there are ways to teach children for their own safety how to approach etc and we have included a guide for reference.


Your co-operation is gratefully appreciated.

Thank you

    Let’s hope this is a one off incident!
