DDA Watch Focus Campaign

Keep up the pressure for smarter laws. Join DDA Watch's email and letter campaign and keep the issue of BSL in the mind of the public and the eye of the policy makers. By encouraging a focus on the flaws in our law you can make a difference.

Petitions are truly great vehicles for conveying large-scale public opinion to governments but personal letters (and emails) are even more effective.

Letters demand to be read, responded to, sometimes published and always to be carefully considered. Join our letter campaigns.


The DDA Letter Campaign

The first step towards changing government policy is to tell government policy makers that things need changing. We can't expect government to 'get it right' unless we tell them what they get wrong.

DDA Watch supports its members in writing to their local MP and government ministers in order to seek their views and opinion on why section 1 of the DDA is still in force and showing no signs of being repealed or revised.

Please use our template letters for ideas or in full - fill in the name and address of your local MP or government minister and send your letter to them direct.

Your Member of Parliament (MP):

If you’re a dog owner in the UK the Dangerous Dogs Act applies to you in some way or another.
