What Happens if My Dog Bites Another Dog?
Dogs biting other dogs are more common than one thinks. Most animals are territorial and when they feel that any part of their personal space is being violated, unfortunately they have a tendency to attack. That being said, if your dog does bite another dog, it is the responsibility of the owner to pay for all damages. The state of California is a strict liability state – which in essence means that if your dog bit another dog, you are responsible for paying the vet bills and any other necessary damages to the owner of the dog that was bitten.
