Know Your Rights Submission Form
In Ontario, we have the dog liability act, which covers this specific area. Under the act, an owner is liable for damages resulting from a dog bite or attack on another person or animal. Your liability does not depend on how much you know about the dog’s behaviour in terms of if they are prone to attack. An incident is an incident. You must take precautions such as a muzzle or leash to mitigate against damages from attacks.
