Ontario has some tough laws for dog owners. As a result of the Dog Owners’ Liability Act, if your dog bites, attacks, or even menaces another person or domestic animal, an order can be sought requiring the confinement, restraint, or even euthanizing of your dog.
Additionally, failure to exercise reasonable precautions to prevent your dog from biting, attacking, or menacing persons or domestic animals can be the grounds for prosecution of an offence for which the maximum sentence is a fine of $10,000, imprisonment of not more than six months, or both.
If your dog has been involved in an incident and you are facing prosecution or an application for the control or destruction of your dog, we can help. Contact us today for a consultation.
