my mate wants me to care for his dog for a few days. i don't have a fence on my property but is it legal to leave the dog off the leash on my own property? if the dog wanders off my property and bites someone, i or the dog owner am not liable right?

If your property is not securely fenced and dog proof, then you shouldn't even consider having or looking after a dog.

There should be no question here. There is only one answer. Forget about it. Now.

Yes you or the owner are liable. You or the owner could possibly get a hefty fine or go to jail if convicted and the dog destroyed. Look up your local councils by laws as they differ from region to region.

In this scenario the owner would get away scot free. By accepting guardianship, lance4k also assumes total responsibility to obey all the legal requirements for keeping the animal on the property and its behaviour.

Which I why I said in a previous post, under these circumstances, don't even think about it.

From experience I can tell you that BBQ'ed dog meat is very nice especially the way my mother-in-law does it.:banana

The recommended way for mother-in-laws to cook dog is
a. Hold it on her lap throughout the baking, or
b. Grill it with her fiery breath

What can I say..........other than neither of the above methods is how she cooks a dog. Better than fillet of rat though which my sister-in-law has served up in sauce. The joys of living oversea's.

You are responsible for the dog and his behaviour while you are looking after him, on or off your property.

Best way to keep him under control is on a lead. Too bad if he does not like it. You need to know where he is and what he is doing at all times. Anything less is irresponsible.

Yes it is legal to have the dog off leash on your own property.:groan:
BUT if the dog is not under your control and bites someone then
you are liable.
Is your mate going away ? wouldn't it be better that the dog stays at your mates house and you stay there while he is gone. or go round each night to feed and walk the dog.

You better hope that the dog doesn't wonder off and bite someone.

Otherwise you are going to be in deep trouble.

You're a moron for more than two reasons in this case. There is a chance the dog would also wander away and get lost, get hit by a car, get stolen etc. The second reason is that there is the risk of the dog attacking someone/killing a smaller animal.

Your friend is either in a hurry or friendless enough to get YOU to take care of his dog while he's gone.

Lance4k is a troll. I would advise you completely ignore his threads.

He was given a warning that any opinion/comment type thread he creates, he must also continue to participate in it. This was to prevent the previous hit and run style that did nothing but rile people up.

Any more stupid examples of posts like this will result in your account being terminated.

Sons girlfriend works for Dog Control. She says they'd do both of you as well as euthanise the dog......although the dog would get a years jail first.

Friend of mine worked at a police station where they took a rabid half-wild lunatic of a dog in to custody for attacking a kid. Months later the case was finally resolved - by which time the dog was well fed, twice the weight, groomed and looking good. They had spent a fortune feeding the thing and having the local vet care for it. The court decided that it should be put down ......

Man you guys are sad. Dogs shouldn't be tied up or restricted to a small pen in the backyard. Our dogs have always roamed free, if they go and cause trouble they learn pretty quickly not to do so. It depends where you live I guess.

I had a big garden for my dog to roam. There was a big fence around the perimeter. There was no escaping .lol

Thanks, Jen, for bringing some realism to this thread.
He was obviously simply stirring this time.
On other occasions, there was a possibility that he was merely thick.
But now the trolling clues are so obvious that he's a great candidate for blacklisting.

Boring...

He/she is harmless and is no worse than some of the other idiots who post here :)

Thanks for reminding me we have the choice of putting anyone on our own Ignore List.

It opens a world of possibilities...
