Not keeping a dog on a lead. 3. Permitting a dog to enter land from which dogs are excluded. From 12 May 2008, anyone who commits an offence under any of the provisions of the Dog Control Order may be issued with a £75 Fixed Penalty Notice or be liable upon conviction in the Magistrates Court of a fine up to £1000.
