New legislation in Northern Ireland will be introduced in two stages. The first set of legal safeguards will come into operation on 5 July 2024 and will add XL Bully type dogs to the list of restricted breeds. From this date owners will not be allowed to breed, sell, exchange, gift or abandon an XL Bully type dog and they will need to keep their dog muzzled and on a lead when in public places. The dog must be kept in secure conditions that will stop it from escaping.

From Muzzles and Headcollars to help you and your dog stick to the rules, to Clickers & Training Treats to help your dog adjust to this new lifestyle, we've got you covered.
