What you must do if you have a declared dangerous or menacing dog and you are moving or have moved?

You must inform the local council, for the area you intend keeping your declared dangerous or menacing dog, that you will be keeping your dog in its area. This enables the local council to ensure that you will comply with all control requirements for declared dangerous or menacing dogs.

In the case of a declared dangerous dog, this also enables the council to issue you with a certificate of compliance, certifying that your dog's enclosure meets regulatory requirements. For further information on control requirements, click here.

After that location has changed, you must inform the local council for the area your dog has, until now been ordinarily kept, that your dog is now being kept in a different council area.

If you own a declared dangerous or menacing dog and the location at which your dog is ordinarily kept has changed, you must inform the local council, for the area your dog has, until now, been ordinarily kept (even if the location at which your dog is now ordinarily kept is in the same council area). You must do this as soon as practicable after the change of location using a Change of Owner/Details (C3A) form or a Change of Address Notice (C3C).

This enables the local council to ensure that you are complying with control requirements for declared dangerous or menacing dogs. In the case of a declared dangerous dog, this also enables the council to issue you with a certificate of compliance, certifying that your dog's enclosure meets regulatory requirements.
