The Dog Control Act 2013, as amended by the
Dog Control (Amendment) Act 2014, has been
partially proclaimed and in force since June 2,
The Act seeks to provide for the control of dogs
and to regulate the manner in which certain breeds
of dogs are kept by their owners or keepers. It
repeals the Dangerous Dogs Act 2000.
The Act categorises dogs into 2 classes. Six
breeds are specified as dangerous or class A dogs:
the American Pit Bull Terrier, the American
Staffordshire Terrier, the American Bully, the Dogo
Argentino, the Japanese Tosa and the Fila Brasileiro.
All other dogs are classified as Class B.
The sections of the Act that have been pro-
claimed and are currently in force are: Sections
30. They provide, among other things, that:
• Every person who owns or keeps a dog shall
provide it with adequate and appropriate care,
food, water, shelter, exercise, attention and vet-
erinary care as may be required to meet the needs
of the dog.
• No dog is allowed to enter a public space
where a notice is displayed prohibiting entry to
dogs unless the dog is an assistance dog, or is
being used to secure the location or by a person
in the service of the State.
• Class A dogs shall be kept in the enclosed
premises of its owner or keeper.
• It is an offence for any owner or keeper of
a class A dog to abandon that dog. A person who
abandons their dog is liable to a fine of fifty thou-
sand dollars and to imprisonment for two years.
• The owner or keeper of a class A dog can be
found liable in civil proceedings for any death,
injury or damage caused by that dog.
• A person who owns a class A dog must display
a notice in a prominent place on his property
warning of a dangerous dog.
• The owner or keeper of any other type of dog
which has been dangerously out of control on at
least one occasion must also display a notice in
a prominent place warning of a dangerous dog.
• The owner or keeper of a class A dog is liable
to: A fine of one hundred thousand dollars and
to five years imprisonment if their dog unreason-
ably injures someone; and a fine of two hundred
thousand dollars and to ten years imprisonment
if their dog unreasonably kills someone.
• It is a criminal offence for a person to incite
their dog to cause grievous bodily harm or death
to another person.
• The owner or keeper of a class A dog who is
unable to fulfill the requirements of the Act may
inform the Ministry of Local Government of such
and the Ministry will take possession of the dog.
• The Minister may declare any other type of
dog to be subject to the same restrictions as a
Class A dog.
The Act also provides requirements for regis-
tration, licensing, securing of premises, and obtain-
ing policies of insurance for Class A dogs. These
sections and their supporting Regulations are not
yet proclaimed and are therefore not in force at
