Leading dog experts today called for training for owners who can’t control their pets after a couple were attacked on Pendle Hill.
Dog instructor Anthony Holden and award-winning former dog warden Steve Wood said owners needed greater education about the consequences of their dogs’ behaviour.Of course you do. Any idea who'd provide it?
Miss McKenna said the attack went on for ‘a good three or four minutes’.
She said: “Andy had a bit of an argument with the man but I was too flustered to speak. I just told him to control his dogs, turned my back and ran to the car.
“There was blood all over my legs and rips in my jeans. The adrenaline was pumping and I didn’t feel the pain until we started driving, I was that petrified.”So, any arrests? Any confiscation of what are surely meeting the definition of ‘dangerous dogs’?
PC Anita Whittle from Lancashire Police confirmed an investigation was underway and said she was due to take a statement from the boxer dogs’ owner today.I thought so.
