The implication of status dogs for public space relates to dog attacks on humans, children, other dogs, working dogs, the environment and include threats and intimidation of those using public space. Each of these outcomes is explored in detail, e.g. dog attacks on guide dogs; dog attack on children and on communication workers. The recent dog attacks on children in the U are listed. The London Tree Officers Association (LTOA) argue dog attacks on trees are increasing. Associated to this is the increased number of stray dogs now on UK streets. Data for this is provided using data from the Dogs Trust.
