i blame the owners
Asbos for dogs, or "Dogbos", may be introduced under changes to the Dangerous Dogs Act.
Other government proposals include forcing dog owners to insure themselves against the risk their pet will attack someone and requiring them to microchip their mutts.
The "Dogbo" orders, or Dog Control Notices, would allow police and council officials to insist owners muzzle, leash or even neuter their pets.
The measures are designed to tackling the growing problem of vicious animals being bred for use as weapons.
