Considering the government's recent announcement to place XL Bully type dogs on the DDA (Dangerous Dog Act), we have reviewed our policy in order to widen it to include covering dogs on the DDA.

We will be able to cover banned breeds, subject to them having an exemption certificate.

It is a condition precedent to liability that for any dog which is a banned breed under the dangerous dogs act 1991 and/or as subsequently amended within the united kingdom the following guidelines are strictly adhered to whilst the dog is in your care, custody or control:

1. The dog is registered with the index of exempted dog (IED) and a copy of the life certificate is obtained and provided to us in the event of a claim.

2. A copy of the public liability insurance certificate for the dog is obtained and provided to us in the event of a claim.

3. The dog handler ratio is 1:1 at all times.

4. All guidelines under the index of exempted dogs are strictly adhered to and the dog must be:

i. Neutered

ii. Micro Chipped

iii. Kept on a lead and muzzled at all times

iv. Kept in a secure place, so it cannot escape
