Here’s what some of our readers think, but do you agree?

I don’t think there needs to be breed specific legislation, but I do think that owners need to be more responsible, no matter what the breed. More education in dog behaviour is needed.

If you cant keep your dog under voice control it should never be off a lead. I think it should be mandatory that if you have a dog you should have to complete some form of dog training.

Sarah Whelan, Tring

I don’t think so, I just think better education e.g. please don’t let your dog run up to my children and shout out: “Oh it’s fine he just wants to play,” when actually he may just want to have a bite.

Nikki Lane, Tring

I think all dogs should be insured. And if they have a history of being aggressive, mussel them when out. It’s a tough one to say punish the owner: the dog could be ill and not normally behave that way.

Katie Hughes, Tring

Consideration of others is all important. I think if a dog has demonstrated it’s capable of killing another dog it should be put to sleep. It might be a small child next time.
