Yes, and how about better screening? The news story says the officer had been with the force less than a year, but who cares! If you're walking around with a gun, and you can go where you want, when you want, and shoot at whatever you want, I think it's disgusting that the person can be so gutless that they "fear for their life" when they're confronted by a dog that's chained up.

I'm not bashing LE, I have relatives who chose that career path, so I'm not blaming them. But are the pickings so slim these days for recruits that they have to allow any wimp to join? I know society's going down the toilet, but this is a terrible indication of times to come.

I havent seen a "dog on premises" sign, I'll look for that wording. Thanks.

Good idea, Twyla! We had custom signs made that read, 'German Shepherd on Premises' & 'German Shepherd Lives Here'.

I was "hoping" the Eldorado part meant it was right up the road - I would've been driving up the hill tonight after work. Unfortunately, WSIL TV is out of IL.

THIS cop-shoots-dog story REALLY ticks me off...

Ooohhhh. I LIKE the "German Shepherd Lives Here" idea. I may have to get a couple of those made.

You can custom make signs online for cheap!

Just asked the BF if they are trained on how to treat dogs in the academy. He said they just spent three days on family violence from 8am-5pm. Next three days deal with child molestors and the next week is spent on how to not get killed (safety precautions, how to enter homes, how to calm someone down). He said dogs are not a priority in the academy, they are learning how to save human lives instead and stay alive themselves. They did get to see some cool drug dogs though, and the k9 officers are revered there. He said the professor said that if they want to learn about dogs than to join animal control. And he said he is not asking any more questions for me since the prof made him look like an idiot for that one lol

Thanks for trying a thread like this again Debbi. After that last thread....

I hope the LEO will jump in with information. What do they want to see when they arrive at a location that has a dog etc.

I would not recommend using this sign on your front door but I have it on my bedroom door as a joke:

We have "Dogs on Premises" and our dogs are nowhere near our front door.
They are in a fenced yard on the side of our home.
There is zero chance our dogs will greet anyone at the front door unless they are inside our home (the dogs). We have gates up (inside) so they can't get to or out the back door.

The front door could be accessed by my dogs, but I greet people at the door and close it behind me and go out onto the front porch to talk to them.
I don't allow people in our home, unless someone is here to put the dogs up when the person enters.
