Important information for XL Bully owners

Published: 23 January 2024

You will have heard in the news that from 1 February, XL Bully dogs will be banned in England and Wales under the Dangerous Dogs Act.

This means that it will be a criminal offence to own an XL Bully unless your dog has a Certificate of Exemption. You can apply for this certificate here 

As well as obtaining a certificate, the law states that to keep an XL Bully it must be:

  • microchipped
  • kept on a lead and muzzled at all times when in public
  • kept in a secure place so it cannot escape
  • neutered

As of 31 December 2023 in England and Wales, it is against the law to:

  • sell an XL Bully dog.
  • abandon an XL Bully dog or let it stray.
  • give away an XL Bully dog.
  • breed from an XL Bully dog.
  • have an XL Bully in public without a lead and muzzle

Watch this useful video from Merseyside Police which tells you the steps you need to take by 31 January 2024.

If you own an XL Bully and live in one of our homes, there will be no change to your tenancy as long as the new legislation is followed.

If you have any further questions about the XL Bully ban or pets in your home, get in touch.
