Question

i have a big no trespassing sign if someone puts their arm over my fence is that considered trespassing?


why are there so many stupid people out there? I just dont get it? They would stick their face in a chain saw or a lions cage, or a bears face also.


What about putting electric wire on the outside of your fence? booby trapping it.

All I know is, if someone puts their hand inside your fence and gets bitten, they can sue you and win. You should have had a tighter, or taller, or stronger fence if you own a biting dog.

IMO a 'beware of dog' does not have to mean your dog is dangerous. it just tells people to be aware that you have a dog.

You should ask law enforcement in your area. I live in a condo. Behind our back patio is a small green belt. About 10 years ago we had problems with people using drugs and sleeping behind our fence and just using it as a cut through.

I asked the police, since it is private property can these people be cited? The police said for them to enforce anything we had to put up No Trespassing signs. So I got the condo association to put them up and about six months ago someone was cited for sleeping behind my neighbor's unit. What you asked seems like common sense, but many of our laws are not based on common sense.

Why ask law enforcement? They aren't really involved in civil law suits which is where we might find ourselves in a dog bite incident. I doubt any penal code will specifically prohibit "Beware of Dog" signs.

We had a Beware of Dog sign in the window, but were concerned about its connotation.

We now have in the window an "in case of fire, please rescue dog" sign, which we hope covers our bases.

My husband walks Joey through the neighborhood enough to show his presence.

Ask your insurance agent.

Out State Farm agent said to NOT put any sign up.

I have three signs on my 6ft wood fence. Two say Beware of Dog and the on right on the gate says, Protected by German Shepherd Security Co.

I have a sign posted at the back of our property that says "This Area Patrolled By White German Shepherd Security Company" with a silouhette of a fluffy GSD. It doesn't specifically SAY that she is a guard dog, or that she will bite anyone...just saying she is there. We cannot have a fence due to living on the golf course and we do not have a pool. Scarlett is never out unsupervised, but that does not stop the golfers from wandering into the yard to get their wayward golf balls. Oddly, Scarlett rarely even barks at them...until the reach some point in the yard that SHE has determined means they are in her territory. Generally, one look at her and they run the other way.

FWIW, I also have a red, triangular sign that says MINES further out on the lot. The "Beware of Snakes" sign did not deter them, so I thought the MINES sign would. Not so much...they are a thick headed bunch, those golfers. BUT it is I who has all their balls.

If the sign doesn't deter someone, a White GSD with antlers will, lol!!
