Dog Parks
Dog owners are legally responsible for the actions of their dogs, even when at a dog park. If someone else's dog has injured
you or someone you love, the owner is liable for your damages, including medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

   PHOENIX, AZ, May 20, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Across the Phoenix, Tempe, Mesa area and Maricopa County, "dog
parks" or "bark parks" are popping up all over valley. Usually these dog parks are fenced off areas away from a park where
family, friends and, children gather to play basketball, have picnics, or barbeque. In the fenced area, dogs are allowed to run
off a leash, play with other dogs without interfering with pedestrians. Dog Parks tend to have readily available water for dogs
and pooper-scoopers or plastic bags.

Like any Maricopa County community park, the Dog Park has rules:

•Dogs in heat are not allowed
•Aggressive dogs are not allowed
•Owners must watch the dog in the area
•Vaccinations must be up to date
•Children or Adults may not play with a dog in the fenced area
•Dogs must obey leash laws until in the fenced area
•More than one dog is welcomed as long as the owner can handle it

However, not every Arizona dog owner follows dog park rules. Owners tend to feel that if their dog has never attacked or
bitten someone, that their dog is not susceptible to future attacks. But any dog can viciously or non-viciously bite a person
without any reason. Dogs do not need a reason and are often accidentally provoked by victim. But the victim is not to blame.

Dog owners are legally responsible for the actions of their dogs, even when at a "dog park" or "bark park," If someone else's

and suffering. If a dog in Phoenix, Tempe, Mesa or elsewhere in Maricopa County has bitten you, you should contact an
