In a bid to tackle the 'status dogs' problem, a new Labour proposal suggests a third party insurance for dog owners against their pet attacking someone.
It seems that some dogs are kept for their 'status' - and it's these that are dangerous - and are not always looked after properly.
Of course, most people keep their dogs as much-loved pets and derive a lot of pleasure from their company, not to mention excercise from their walking!
In Stamford we have just the place for all caring dog owners - Pet's Korner right in the middle of town. With vast numbers of recommendations, this is a pet shop that cares about both the pets and the owners, and has the knowledge and the products to back them up.
If you don't have a dog to get that much needed half hour of excercise a day, then you can always drop into Curves (for women) or Westside Health Club to help keep your heart healthy and the calories burning.
