North Dakota Dog Law

North Dakota

Liability Statute

North Dakota does not have a Dog Bite Statute.

Common Law Liability

Under the common law, a person can recover damages for injuries caused by a dog if he or she proves that the owner was negligent and that the owner’s negligence caused the injury.

Dangerous Dog Statute

North Dakota Does not have a Dangerous Dog Statute.

Dogs as a Public Nuisance

Under this statute, any dog that habitually molests a person traveling peaceably on the public road or street is a public nuisance. If the victim files a written complaint with a district or municipal judge, the judge will give notice to the owner and require that the owner take the necessary action to prevent the dog from engaging in that behavior. If the judge receives a second complaint, the owner will be required to appear in court and may be subject to fines or other court orders.
