Assistance Dogs Trained By Canine Essentials: Liability of Damage

According to the leaders in Assistance Dog Standards, Assistance Dogs International (2016b) has designed a “Model Law” that they encourage federal and state bodies to adopt. In this, they consider what should happen if the Assistance Dog should cause damage:

  • The owner of an assistance dog is solely liable for any damage to persons, premises, or facilities including places of public accommodation, public conveyances or transportation services, common carrier of passengers, places of housing accommodations, and places of employment caused by that assistance dog.
  • An “Individual with a disability”, including but not limited to, the blind, visually impaired, deaf, hard of hearing, or otherwise disabled who uses an assistance dog shall keep the dog properly harnessessed or Leashed, and a person who is injured by the dog because of an “Individual with a disability”, including but not limited to, the blind, visually impaired, deaf, hard of hearing, or otherwise disabled failure to properly harnessess or leash the dog is entitled to maintain a cause of action for damages in a court of competent jurisdiction under the same laws applicable to other causes brought for the redress of injuries caused by animals.
