Potentially dangerous dogs
On the other hand, the Department of Citizen Protection of the City Council of Dénia started last summer a campaign to promote the regularization of potentially dangerous dogs in the municipality.
Of the 60 regularization records registered in 2019, 21 were notified and the owners of the animals proceeded with the regularization and 11 could not be located. The remaining 28 have not regularized the situation of the animals, so the council has proceeded to open disciplinary proceedings to their owners.
