Connecticut Dog Laws

According to Connecticut law, dogs are not allowed to roam on another person’s property, in state parks, on sidewalks, or onto public roads if not under control.

Animal control officers may seize any:

  • Roaming or Unleashed Dogs
  • Dogs Without Tags or Plates
  • Dogs Found Injured on Roads
  • Dogs Subjected to Cruelty
  • Abandoned, Unclaimed Dogs

Dog owners are responsible for keeping pets restrained and under control around other people — and can be held legally accountable if their dogs injure others.

Who is Liable for Dog Bite Injuries in Connecticut?

Dog bite statutes make owners or keepers liable for damage or injury a dog causes to a person or property — unless a person was teasing, abusing, or tormenting a dog. This strict liability statute does not require the victim to prove the dog’s owner or keeper knew a dog was vicious or was otherwise negligent.

Under certain circumstances, other parties could be held responsible as well.
