I see that posters are being put up by the City of London, showing a Great Dane, and asking residents below if they want cats and/or dogs on the Estate? This is along with their survey, again showing the massive hound! One look at him, and I guess many people will be 'freaked out', but I suppose that's what the COL are hoping. After all, when has anyone ever seen a Great Dane living in a flat? Could they not have used a picture of a small dog instead, which is more realistic to our surroundings, not that they needed a picture of any dog, as we all know what one looks like.
Maybe, for maximum 'effect' at putting people off dogs, the COL should have used an Irish Setter, or going one even better than that, the 'Hound of the Baskervilles'!!
Hello bdon. If you read the whole of this thread it should answer your point. There are Laws in this country that protect people with disabilities, as defined under the Disability Discrimination Act 1995, which was replaced by the Equality Act 2010, for their rights to have 'Assistance' dogs, for example, for those who are physically disabled. This Act equally protects the rights of physically disabled people, and those with psychological disabilities, whose needs are defined in what is known as 'reasonable adjustments'. This is what service providers have to make allowances for.
You obviously have not been in the unfortunate position where you may need a 'companion' animal for your needs, but many people do.
as tenants of the corporation or long leaseholders of the corporation our contract clearly states "no pets", this was by design. I'm somewhat at a loss as to why the corporation is even asking the question.
