Important Reminder:

If you have an exempted dog (registered on the Index of Exempted Dogs) you need to keep your compulsory 3rd party liability insurance up-to-date, at all times and when you renew it you need to send proof of your insurance cover to the Index - if your insurance lapses then your dog is at risk of being seized and may be destroyed.

If you are in need of help - please contact DDA Watch for advice.
