No win no fee in Brookmans Park
Walking past houses that have large, aggressive dogs barking as though they would like to sink their teeth into your thigh is never a nice experience. But while it might make you jump and wonder why anybody in their right mind would want to own such animals, in the majority of cases, you’ll be able to walk on safe in the knowledge that a sturdy fence or other barrier of some description separates you from the horrible beast that would clearly love nothing more than to attack you.
Fortunately, owners of large dogs that could pose a risk of doing somebody an injury are both legally and morally bound to make sure their animals are prevented from getting loose from any enclosure they are kept in. Rather less fortunately for some, there are dog owners who do not take this responsibility especially seriously, keeping their dogs in gardens that they could easily escape from.
