Welcome to the website of Doglaw Ltd. On this site, we’ll tell you about seminars presented by Doglaw Specialist Solicitor Trevor Cooper and also explain how you can join our membership scheme Doglaw SOS.

Are you up to date with Doglaw? This is a fast changing area and so whether you’re a dog owner or professional involved in dogs, you’re cordially invited to attend one of Doglaw Specialist Solicitor Trevor Cooper’s low cost seminars.

Don’t be put off! Its a chat about the law rather than a law lecture and Trevor’s style of presentation will put you at your ease from the start.

Come along, have a bit of a giggle and learn lots! Places cost only £20 (+ a certificate of attendance can be supplied on request) and we provide them at numerous venues throughout England & Wales.

The seminar is called Doglaw: What every responsible dog owner needs to know. This  3½ – 4  hour talk will cover the main civil and criminal laws that are most relevant and the content is likely to include:-

  • How to value a dog
  • Ownership disputes
  • Rights & responsibilities when buying and selling dogs
  • Liability (civil and criminal) for dogs that harm people and/or animals
  • The importance of insurance
  • Identification: collar & tag + microchipping
