American XL Bully Ban will begin to come into effect on 31st December 2023. From 1st February owning a Bully without an exemption will be a criminal offence. In response to the growing concerns expressed by Vets, Veterinary professionals, pet shop workers, and XL Bully owners regarding the upcoming ban on the American XL Bully breed, we have organised two webinars.

Given the confusing and stressful climate surrounding this impending legislation, the webinars aim to provide clarity and guidance to dog owners, as well as those who work with them and their dogs.
