Yep that’s always been a loophole in a sense. Having dogs. So long as you have beware of dog signs.
But it’s easy to get around dogs. They’re the best deterrent for the opportunistic thieves, junkies.
But if it’s a targeted theft they can manage the dogs.
Just give me all the bacon and eggs you have.

Yawn, heard versions of this going back to when people kept a dinosaurs as pets, or maybe the other way around.

The law however states;

Civil Liability

Under section 25 of the Companion Animals Act 1998 (NSW) the owner of a dog is liable for damages in respect of:

Bodily injury to a person caused by the dog wounding or attacking that person, and
Damage to the personal property of a person (including clothing) caused by the dog in the course of attacking that person
However this section does not apply to an attack by a dog occurring on any property occupied by the dog’s owner or on which the dog is ordinarily kept, provided that the person attacked was not lawfully on the property and the dog was not classified as a dangerous, menacing or restricted dog at the time of the attack.



Thank the powers that be that someone actually gets this.

Good grief.

Good Lord.

Sorry mate, I think you may have taken that out of context.

You inferred the crook may be able to sue.

bah! said that a dog on private premises attacking an unlawful intruder is all well and good under law.

I agreed, venting frustration at a commonly misunderstood part of the law.

Desperate criminals intent on breaking into anywhere will most likely target the weakest easiest, lowest security. If I had a gun shop I would sleep better at night knowing some other shop had a Weaker front door than mine
