I lived in Washington state all of my life and the last two years were **** with obnoxious college kids as neighbors. One night one of the boys were drunk and in my yard. I called the police and then told the kid, through my window he had 60 seconds to get the *bleep* out of my yard before I let the dogs out. When the police arrived, I explained what I had said and asked what the laws were there.
Their answer was that if I had let the dogs out and they bit the kid, he could sue me, however they were not likely to win.
Normally, I let the dogs out first anyway. The kid was lucky that I heard him out there before I had let them out. I was lucky too, as having heard him helped me to avoid the hassle of going through the red tape of not only a lawsuit, but the fear of having my dogs labeled as dangerous, which is always a possibility when a dog bites, no matter the reason.
