Dog attacks that lead to bites, mauling, and other consequences can lead to extensive injuries that may require surgery as well as emotional trauma associated with these types of incidents. The majority of dog owners are responsible citizens who ensure that their dog is always on a leash and is muzzled whenever necessary. However, there are many owners who neglect their responsibilities and either fail to properly train their pets or purposely encourage their animals to be aggressive.
The Dog Owner's Liability Act is a piece of legislation that was enacted in order to protect the rights of Ontario residents as well as provide clear guidelines for owners of dogs and outline any potential recourse that is available in the event of a dog attack. Dog owners who have their dogs cause injury to persons or damage to property are liable to have a claim made against their homeowner’s insurance policy which may result in increased premiums or even refusal to renew a policy.
