Something to consider! It shouldn’t have to come to this but here is the act in full – http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga…
Animal Welfare Act 2006
Everyone taking part in the events/Meetups/gatherings or other activities does so at their own risk.
All owners at the Meet-ups are responsible for the control of their own dogs. Any conflict between dogs is strictly down to owners of those dogs involved and the organizer of the Meet-up group is not responsible for the outcome of any situation that may arise. By joining this group/page you are agreeing to the rules of the group including this disclaimer and these Meet-up terms and conditions.
By attending any meet-up event, you are agreeing to take full responsibility for any injury or damage to your dog(s). The Meetup group ‘French and English Bulldogs/Bostons/Pugs UK’ takes no responsibility for any damage or loss including disappearance, theft, death or otherwise. You are fully liable for your animal should they cause or suffer any damage or injury.
Visitors are reminded that the terrain of the walk may be unstable, so please be aware of the possibility of slips, trips and falls. By attending the walk/Meetup event you are responsible for your own risk assessment and the group/host takes no responsibility for any accident that may arise to owners or animals.
Our Meetups/gatherings are a group Meetup and we want them to be safe at all times for everyone participating. To help keep the Meetups safe and fun can we please consider the following if you are to come to any of the future Meetup/gatherings.
1) Please remember some dogs can be possessive and aggressive when sharing toys or balls. Please keep this to a minimum while walking as a group as fights can occur suddenly due to dogs being unwilling to share. Your dog may be fine but other dogs that you don’t know may not be.
2) Please ask the owner’s permission when giving out treats as some dogs may have allergies or other health issues that could be affected by ingredients in treats. Also some dogs don’t like to share which could cause fighting among the pack.
3) Uncontrollable dogs must be kept on a lead.
4) Please respect other dog owners in the park if they are on a lead. This is your responsibility, not the host’s.
Dogs must be kept under close control at all times and on lead where necessary or requested by the walk leader/host.
Thank you for considering others on the walk and group members.
Meetup Meetings at Locations
Meetup Meetings. Through our Facebook Group or Page. Facebook provide tools that enable our users to arrange physical meetings (a “Meetup meeting” or Meetup gathering) at locations that include public parks, private homes, private land or elsewhere. We do not supervise these Meetup meetings and are not involved in any way with the actions of any individuals at these Meetup meetings or gatherings. As a result, we have no control over the identity or actions of the individuals who are present at these Meetup meetings or gatherings and we request that our members exercise caution and good judgment when attending these events.
By uploading photographs onto the group or group email you are giving the group authorisation to use photographs for media, advertising and other purposes, without the owners permission if need be.
The Meetup group does not provide or guarantee the availability of qualified first aiders at any of our events. Event organisers and event hosts assume no responsibility for anyone attending any group event. The Meetup group, group organisers, event organisers and event hosts will not be held responsible for any accident, injury or loss occurring as a result of any group event, or in connection with travel to such event, however caused.
Participants in the group events/Meetups/gatherings are expected to take responsibility for assessing their own risk, the safety of themselves and their guests and to ensure that they are properly equipped and fit enough to participate in the Event/Meetup/Gathering they are attending. Each participant in the event/Meetup/gathering is expected to have a duty of care and respect for every other participant in that Event/Meetup/Gathering.
Please note that the Meet-up group, group host/organisers/event organisers are not covered by personal accident or liability insurance. If you are concerned about insurance, you should make your own arrangements for cover.
The Animals Act 1971 makes a “keeper” of a dog strictly liable for damage caused by the dog in certain circumstances. A person is a “keeper” of a dog if they own it or have it in their possession. In the case of a child less than 16 owning or having a dog in their possession the head of that child’s household may be deemed to be the keeper. That person remains the keeper until someone else fitting the qualifications succeeds them as a keeper. The Animals Act is very complicated and much is down to definition and case law. The best course of action is to ensure you have full control over your dog at all times and to question the competence of anyone you may entrust to look after your dog even for a short period of time. We also strongly recommend you ensure you take out third party liability cover as a precaution. A few moments thought could save a lot of heartache and expense!
