My godson asked if he could play with my dogs outside with his cousin. My dogs jumped on his cousin, and they ended up scratching up the kids' legs, and now they're taking him to the hospital. What should I do?

Answer

If your dogs scratched the boy because of being poorly trained, then animal control will not even get involved. I cannot tell you if his family will try to sue you or not; that really depends on your relationship with them. You need to teach your dog not to jump up, though, so read https://pethelpful.com/dogs/Dog-Training-Tips-Jump... for some simple and sure methods to teach your dog not to jump up on kids.
