They are very small, not really something to draw attention unless you are in the sport or the breed.

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.

He was probably jealous!

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.

qbchottu Hmmm...you may be on to something

Nigel If you want to keep people away, how about "CDC Rabies containment vehicle" or maybe "Bio Hazard" ok, not serious, but while caution k9 might warn or curb the curiosity of normal people, it may not deter the other 50% of the population.

qbchottu 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" ?

Omg... You wouldn't believe how much I spent at one of those little huts. I still feel ashamed when I think about it.

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