Hello, Question regarding off lease gated dog parks. Most dog parks have signs with specific rules i.e. no food, no one under 16 yrs, dogs must be spayed or neutered, must have license, etc.
My question is if a dog inside a dog park whose minding his/her own business but a little child comes into the dog section park what rights to dog owners have say if a dog bites this child?
I'm only asking because I've seen stupid parents let their child/children inside the dog section of the park to play with dogs and some of these parents do not even have dog themselves, they think it's a playground for kids to pet these dogs.
I mean they aren't supposed to be there in the first place because a kid might run or scare the dog etc.
At times I do tell these parents to please hold the child or leaveTo be exact I've seen a couple of toddlers running around and at times get knocked down by these dogs. SPECIFIC RULE ABOUT CHILDREN, THESE PARENTS DO NOT EVEN SEEK PERMISSION FROM OWNERS. i KNOW TO GET WITNESSES TOO FROM OTHER DOG OWNERS, WE NEED TO PROTECT OURSELVES =) Children 12 years and under must be closely supervised by an adult at all times. Infants and toddlers are not recommended. Parents must ask permission from the dog owner for children to play with a dog.
