A: Arizona law is specific when it comes to leashes.  The law (11-1012) states:

“No person in charge of any dog shall permit such dog in a public park or upon any public school property unless the dog is physically restrained by a leash, enclosed in a car, cage or similar enclosure or being exhibited or trained at a recognized kennel club event, public school or park sponsored event.”

The dog’s owner may be held liable for your daughter’s dog bite injuries.  You should consider contacting an experienced Mesa dog bite lawyer to review your daughter’s case.
