An owner is completely liable for the acts of their dogs. The Ontario Dog Owner’s Liability Act stipulates that the owner of a dog is “liable for damages resulting from a bite or attack by the dog on another person or domestic animal.”
If the dog in question has more than one owner, they share liability for the attack.
Liability does not depend on if the owner had knowledge of the dog’s propensity to attack. In addition, it doesn’t require that the owner has acted in a negligent manner.
Often times children fall victim to these attacks as they cannot fully appreciate the potential dangers in approaching some pets or are simply too small to defend themselves against such attacks.
Dog bite victims often suffer serious physical and emotional repercussions as a result of a dog bite.
