It is always the dog owner’s duty to make sure you aren’t bitten or attacked by their dog. In Connecticut there are a number of laws aimed at controlling dogs. Connecticut general statutes don’t mandate dogs to be kept on leashes at all time. That being said, a dog owner can not allow for their dog to roam on another’s person’s personal property, state park, sidewalk, or public highways. Local governments may also have specific leash ordinances that need to be abide by.
Who is responsible when a dog bites?
There are a number of reasons why dogs bite people—fear, dominance, territory—but determining why someone is bitten isn’t as important as determining what should have been done to prevent the attack.
