Alaska’s One Bite Rule

Under the “one bite rule,” a dog’s owner may be liable for injuries if he or she knew or suspected that the dog would injure someone. If a dog bites a person, then the owner should be aware that it may bite again; however, other behavior may also be considered in determining if the owner should have been aware of the dog’s capability to bite a human.

Other behavioral factors a court may consider include the following:

  • A history of dog bites
  • A history of threatening behavior
  • A history of jumping on people
  • A history of frightening people
  • A history of fight training

Each dog bite case is evaluated individually on the history of the dog.

What About Owner Negligence?

Generally speaking, the owner of a dog owes a legal duty of care to others who may interact with the dog. If that dog injures another person, then it may result in the owner being held liable for the dog’s behavior. The owner may not be held liable if the injured was acting aggressively toward the dog, or prompted an act of defense. However, if the owner failed to properly warn others of his dog’s behavior, failed to properly secure his dog, or failed to otherwise compensate for potential dangers, the blame could fall on the owner.
