The Control of Dogs Act (Scotland) 2010 is to promote more responsible ownership of dogs and ensure that dogs which are out of control are brought and kept under control.
Under the Act, a dog is deemed to be "out of control" if:
The dog is not being kept under control effectively and consistently by the proper person i.e. owner of the dog and its behaviour gives rise to alarm, or apprehensiveness of any individual or any animal other than the dog in question.
If any dog is found to be ''out of control'' the Environmental Health Service has the power to serve Dog Control Notices.
