Dog owners - know the code before you go

Staying Legal in Scotland

The National Sheep Association has published a news page giving key information to dog owners and walkers around sheep.

Legislation exists under:

The Dogs (protection of Livestock) Act 1953; if a dog worries sheep on agricultural land, the person in charge of the dog is guilty of an offence.

The Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003; access rights do not allow members of the  public on to land with a dog which is not under proper control.

The Scottish  Outdoor Access Code; in exercising access rights, you must keep your dog(s) under proper control. You must also ensure that your dog does not worry livestock. In addition-do not take your dog into a field where therea are lambs.
