CONFUSING DOG BITE RULES
Each municipality in New Brunswick has its own dog bylaws. In the instance where an attack takes place in a rural area, the Municipalities Act covers animal control. In most cases, dogs cannot run at large except in specific parks. Most communities do not ban specific breeds although there are a few that have. In some communities, dogs that have been deemed dangerous must be kept muzzled when off property. In many cases, warning signs are required when on property. This can make dog bite liability laws confusing. We can help.
