    Fantastic video and useful information. What if your dog bites another dog?

      Although we commonly refer to dogs as “man’s best friend,” they are actually categorized as personal property under California law along with other domesticated animals. Thus, you may be liable to repair or replace the other dog. However, unlike when your dog bites a person, emotional damages stemming from an owner’s close or special relationship with the victim dog shouldn’t be factored in when calculating damages.
