Dolgellau students share their views with Wales Chief Vet

Students from Ysgol y Gader and Coleg Meirion Dwyfor in Dolgellau had the opportunity to share their views with Wales’ Chief Veterinary Officer, Christianne Glossop, on a proposal to improve the control of dogs.
Tuesday 19 February 2013

The Welsh Government wants to raise standards of dog welfare by promoting responsible ownership and preventing dogs from becoming out of control.

The current consultation runs until 1 March and views are sought from anyone who has an interest or a contribution to make. The Welsh Government has also developed a consultation document specifically targeted at children and young people because they are the dog owners of the future.

Professor Glossop called into Ysgol y Gader to meet the school council and met Welsh Bacc students at Coleg Meirion Dwyfor.  

She said:

“The views of young people are extremely important.   The Welsh Government consults widely on a wide range of topics and it is important we have as many responses as possible from all sectors within our society. This current consultation on the control of dogs has the potential to affect us all, not only dog owners, so we need a comprehensive response. And today’s young people are tomorrow’s pet owners.  The feedback today from the students was creative and constructive and I would encourage others to give us their responses before 1 March.”

The consultation will run until 1 March 2013 and can be accessed on the Welsh Government website on www.wales.gov.uk/consultation
