Close to the end of week two, 753 people have signed our petition to the SNP government to reverse the ban on the docking of working dogs’ tails. We haven’t extrapolated all the data on this, this is just a weekly outline update on the number of people who have hit the YES button. The petition is due to close on January 31st so we still have plenty more time to share, sign and encourage others as we aim to see the overturning of this law which has led to suffering for working dogs, torment and cost for their owners and the loss of important Scottish breeding lines which has damaged the future of the industry. Please keep encouraging people to sign. The SGA would like to thank all those who have helped so far. Members, members’ friends, industry partners, gundog owners and clubs across Scotland, the NGO and other supporters, as well as members of the public. We’d like to thank proactive people who have taken it upon themselves to phone and write to Ministers and welfare groups to get answers for themselves. So, keep up the good work, keep signing and sharing. You can also take the petition directly from our Facebook page. Just press the petition icon on the right of the header.
