The civil responsibility of the owner

Even if you have a nice and peaceful dog, it is your responsibility to make sure that it does not attack anyone! If you or someone else is injured by your pet, the owner could be held responsible.

An accident can happen, no matter how big your doggie is, a Chihuahua can bite. In terms of civil liability, you should refer to article 1243 of the civil code which states: “Whether the animal was in his possession, or whether it was lost or fled, the owner of an animal, or the person who uses it while it is in his use, is accountable for the damage that the animal has caused.”

As a result, be cautious that your pet does not escape from your home, as this could result in an accident.

Is a muzzle mandatory?

Muzzles are not always necessary for all dogs, but they can be useful in certain circumstances. For example, muzzles can reduce a dog’s ability to fight with other animals and eat things it shouldn’t. They are also an excellent training tool for dogs. 

They are also a great training tool when teaching a new dog to behave properly around people or other animals!

But what does the law say about this? Well, it is very clear that your pet must wear one if it is in the first or second category.

Category 2

  • Rottweiler
  • Staffordshire terrier
  • Tosa

  • You must not have a criminal record
  • Be of age

Do I need a possession permit?

It is not because a dog is considered dangerous by many people that a possession permit is mandatory. Nevertheless, it is important to know that dogs belonging to category 1 or 2 require a permit for the owner.

It will be necessary to follow compulsory training in order to receive a certificate of aptitude. Be careful, you will have to call upon a certified trainer!
