I have this one, one of a dog on a bicep bite and the dreaded, "Caution Working K9". A few weeks ago I had some made that say "Caution Working Dog". It's more so I don't get dumb comments like; "Do you know your dog is in there?". Also so if I get pulled over, it's not a surprise to the officer that a dog may greet him. My stickers have caught the attention of LEO's and scored me some sweet training spots on the river. They usually ask for a demo and then let me do what I want. So, yes I will keep it.
For out in public I have "DO NOT PET" vests however I find them ineffective. I have found the only people who respect the vest are the ones that would have asked to pet anyways. So I don't use them anymore. Now days I'm just rude about it. I get lot's of dirty looks but oh well.

|volcano||The law is usally that you can dress like a cop but not represent a cop. So you could have a k9 vest on your dog but if you told people shes a cop then youd be in trouble. Or you could wear a police outfit, but if you started telling people you were gonna write a ticket then youd be in trouble.|

What's your sticker say? Think I missed your earlier post

Some people are going to be idiots no matter what. I don't base my decisions on them. I like having a sticker because it allows me to bring dogs to work (weather permitting) which is something that I do on a quite regular basis certain times a year (I recently had Legend with me every day for two weeks). It satisfies campus security knowing where they are and it being marked so a dumb person can't complain to them that they were startled by a dog or call in a make a cruelty complaint when they know its my vehicle and have seen how the dogs are kept. So far it's never attracted any unwanted attention. I am not picky on the exact verbiage as long as it implies there are dogs present and one should not come smash their face against the van window; my current sticker is what was on clearance at the time.

I have been thinking of putting a "Caution K9" or "Caution - Working Dog" on my dog trailer. It is a WT 4 hole Thermo and draws a lot of attention as it isn't something common where I live. I have had to deal with the weirdest people tapping, banging, or talking/yelling at my dogs in the trailer. Of course this drives everyone nuts and they all start barking :|
I have even had a cop called over because someone thought the trailer was cruel or the dogs couldn't breathe. Of course once I showed the officer that it is an air-conditioned, spacious (I had the boxes built extra large), state of the art dog transportation vehicle, they realized why I was chuckling and rolling my eyes at the complainer.
Maybe a strong sounding sign would deter these types of people - I don't like to draw attention to myself. I just wanted a safe way to transport multiple dogs. Wondering how I can deter these types of people. "Working Dogs - Keep Back" ?

And looking down and avoiding eye contact never works for me.

|carmspack||because K9 Kraving isn't attached to or define her dog as in a lead , a vest , or a collar .|
