How Can a Dog Be Deemed a “Dangerous Dog” in PA?

Posted on: October 16th, 2014  padog

Pursuant to the PA Dog Law, the only way a dog can be classified as a “dangerous dog” is through a charge and subsequent conviction of Section 502-A. The offense of “harboring a dangerous dog” can be proven by establishing that the canine attacked a human being without provocation.
