Court orders 'powerful' Doberman must be muzzled in public after attacks in park

    Rajvinder Singh’s pet has been involved in a number of incidents.
    The owner of a "powerful" Doberman Pinscher has been ordered to keep the animal muzzled at all times in public after it attacked other dogs in a park.

    Rajvinder Singh’s pet, named King, pinned another dog to the ground in Oadby's Brocks Hill Country Park, and than attacked it again after its owner had struggled to separate the animals.

    Leicester Magistrates' Court heard that Singh, 43, made no effort to control King as the incident unfolded.

    The court was also told that on another occasion, King, which was off its lead, attacked a Labrador being walked in the park. It mounted the Labrador from behind and bit it, before Singh and the Labrador's owner were able to get the dogs separated.

    On a third occasion, King lunged at another dog while being walked on its lead by Singh in the park.

    The incidents prompted Oadby and Wigston Borough Council to seek a court order to force Singh, of Oadby Road, Wigston to control the dog, which he has owned since 2016, in public.

    What the council said

    The council’s solicitor, Samuel Ball, told the court: “There have been several incidents of Mr Singh not having his Doberman Pinscher King under control.”

    He said the council had advised Singh to keep the dog muzzled, but said all the advice had been ignored. This led him to being interviewed under caution at the council in March.

    Mr Ball told magistrates: “Unless Mr Singh is directed by the court to control his powerful dog, other incidents might occur.”

    Mr Ball said King "did not tolerate" other dogs, and added that it was feared the animal might attack a person in the future.

    In mitigation, the court heard that unemployed Singh had said King had also been attacked by a dog and had his ear bitten October – an event that led to him being taunted about the incident on social media.

    The court was told Singh had kept dogs all his life, and took the responsibility very seriously.

    As well as imposing the order to keep King muzzled in public, magistrates ordered Singh to pay £200 of the council’s costs

    Jesus Christ! Keep the dog UNDER CONTROL. What’s difficult about it? He’s an Irresponsible owner who’s failed this poor dog. He doesn’t deserve King :(

    Not only is he a jackass, but this feeds into the old stigma that Dobermans are "dangerous ". This type of Dobe owner gives our breed a black eye!

    Wow, so it’s a dog reactive Doberman, a behaviourist can fix this! There’s no excuse to allow this dog to go on like this.
