Sheep Worrying is on the rise

A recent study showed that sheep worrying by dogs is on the rise in the UK. The National Sheep Association has launched a new online resource which provides some useful guidance and information for dog owners in a bid to increase public awareness and understanding (http://www.nationalsheep.org.uk/dog-owners). Scottish lambing season typically runs March/April so we thought this was a timely reminder that we should keep our dogs on lead in livestock farming areas of the countryside.
