New dog control orders

Stroud District Council have made four new orders relating to dog fouling and dog control.

Alterations have been made to the Dangerous Dogs Act which place a much heavier burden of responsibility on the pet dog owner to prevent ant-social activity such as barking or chasing cats. Please read the press release by the Government.


Since 6th April 2016 all puppies over 8 weeks have had to be microchipped by law.
Any dog taking the Puppy Foundation course, or the Bronze, Silver or Gold Good Citizen award must therefore be microchipped. Scanning of the chip will be part of the test.


It is a requirement of the club that all dogs, – both in obedience and agility classes – are vaccinated. We require proof of vaccination on joining a class.


Club members, please note your annual subscriptions are now due. Please pay promptly.
