Most auto repair shops keep dogs to watch or monitor their shops for theft and intrusion; however insurance companies most likely exclude dog liability coverage. Also in the event of fire and smoke dogs cannot notify or call you as well. They cannot help and most likely they will run away if they are smart.

In many states, when you keep a dog to monitor your business, for any injury regardless whether the dog is provoked or otherwise, the owner will become automatically liable. Some states do not make the owner liable on the first bite but if it bites one more time the owner will be liable. When dogs that guard a business cause property damage to neighbors or employees, owners can become liable too. They are only not liable when someone is trespassing.
