DOG BITE LAW: Is California's dog bite laws strict and enforceable when it comes to a dog bite?

Yes they are!  Be wary if you are dog owner in the State of California.

All dog bites are covered under California State law, and the laws are designed to make dog owners responsible for the actions of their dogs and if they bite, they are held to high standard of care known as "strict liability."  You only need to prove, as the dog bite victim, that the dog owner's dog bit you and you sustained injury.  There are only narrow exceptions a dog owner can escape legal fault in California.
