Support Idaho Dangerous Dog Act

Please help us pass new legislation to provide statewide minimum standards for dealing with unprovoked, aggressive dog attacks. 

Here are some of the important changes that would be made to current regulations:

1. The Court would have more discretion in the management of dangerous dogs and the ability to differentiate less severe behavior from more dangerous behavior and provide appropriate conditions for keeping the offending dog to ensure public safety. The court is provided the discretion to order a dog destroyed on a first unprovoked incident resulting in severe injury or death of a human.

2. Court ordered conditions for keeping offending dogs expire
after a period of time providing no further incidents occur. The statue provides that under certain circumstances, aggressive acts by dogs are justifiable, and the dog and its owner are exempt from prosecution.

3. Personal responsibility is emphasized as well as the rights of both owners and victims of at risk or dangerous dogs. Misdemeanor penalties are introduced for dangerous dog violations.
