If your dogs attack or injure someone, you could be held liable for the damages – even if it was an unlawful trespasser who got injured.
If you have dogs on your property, it's important to know that if they attack or injure someone you could be held liable for the damages to a lawful or unlawful visitor if your dog behaved in a manner that is contrary to what can be expected of a well-behaved dog.
The same could be true even for unlawful trespassers. While you are entitled to protect your property and family from trespassers, the law expects you to do so in a reasonable manner - proper notice of dogs should be displayed on your gates in a manner that is clearly visible to trespassers. #StaySmart
