In ANY state. It's why it's a good idea to carry liability insurance.

Don't you think it would be better to train him/have him trained for personal protection and to only attack on command, rather than when someone enters the house? IMO it's not good to have a dog be the one deciding who to attack or when to do it.
 Quoting: Nine's

NEVER train a dog to be aggressive. Instead train a dog to attack on command. Don't take your puppies to dog parks. I do NOT take my adult dog, either. My dog is trained NOT to be aggressive towards other animals or humans, unless I give the command.

That's what I said.

Edited to add: And don't do attack training on your own unless you have the ability and can make sure the dog obeys instantly, and releases EVERY time on the first command.

There have been dogs turned in to shelters because some macho guy thought he's have a protection dog and ended up with a vicious, out of control animal.

I'd go a step further and say that most people do not need an attack trained dog, just one that is well bred, well trained and properly socialized.
 Quoting: Laura Bow

I agree.
