If your dog bites someone who is trespassing on your property or in your home, you will not be held responsible. Therefore, if your dog acts as a guard dog and it bites someone who does not have a legal reason to be on your property you will generally not be held liable. Remember, however, that if your dog bites somebody while in a public place or outside of your property limits you will be liable.
