The weather is cooling down, such that more dogs will come out in public to play, accompanied by their owners.  If you are the owner or person responsible for a dog, pursuant to Arizona law, a dog should either restrained on a leash or confined by an enclosure, or both.  In fact, injury to any person or damage to any property by a dog while “at large,” which means neither confined by an enclosure nor physically restrained by a leash (i.e. unleashed), shall be the full responsibility of the owner.  A dog bite lawyer may help you recover for your damages.
