Question what kind of sign do you put on your fence?

I just put boards up on the fence saying "do not feed, try to play with or touch the dog else will call the police. I have a police officer friend also who is a big k9 fan and gets to watch them in action and loves my dog.

Not exactly like that but basically if i catch anyone near the fence bugging the dog the police will be called asap.

if people ask why i say because shes got allergys and she hurt herself when someone was teasing her. I also have a no tresspassing sign up. I am moving soon though and getting a new house.

any sign you put up ? My dog will only bite someone bad if they jump inside the fence, if she gets free she wont hurt anyone, she wont even leave the fence area if the gate is open. If she did and came across people she would just sniff them and keep walking looking for me. I dont leave her out there alone much at all though she has her own dog door though.

I think whenever I get my GSD, I'm just going to have a "German Shepherd on Premises" sign. Along with a "Beware of Owner" sign underneath it.

I wouldn't advertise that your dog has allergies, though.
Maybe just a no trespassing sign?

i only say allergy if they ask why. I dont wanna say shes going to nail you hard or bite your fingers lol Mines really loud deep vocal though so kids dont wanna go near. Usually people want nothing to do with her. I just have it up in case. I have never seen a person even get 1 foot close to the fence. If they do that she will jump and try to get over and let out some wierd bear like noise. lol Its only when I have not given someone permission to enter. If i tell her its okay and say easy (diffuse command) and do a proper introduction she will calm down. Just takes her a bit to realize that I want that person around.

I only have one sign glued by my door, however it doesn't seem to work on Mormon missionaries.

I've noticed my neighbors, not all, but enough to that its noticeable, will not walk down the sidewalk next to my house when my dog is out. I watched someone one day cross the street to the other side without a sidewalk when they were walking to a neighbor's house, and then they did the same on the way back, only crossing to the sidewalk when safely past my fence. My dog barks at anything that moves. I thought about putting up a sign saying "Beware of Dog," but I have mixed feelings about it. I'm a common sense person, but legally I know there needs to be a sign in just in case.

No. Actually in my state the victim actually has a difficult time winning a case. My state blames the victim if they trespassed, knowingly went near the dog after it displayed aggression, if they were trying to commit a crime, teasing the dog, etc... Its very difficult to sue the owner and win here because the laws were written so long ago; back when most people had dogs exclusively for protection of their property. Signs always help though should you live in a state that is not so kind to the owner.

I usually go with "If dog's attack lie face down until help arrives", that gets everyone's attention. I haven't had any strangers in my yard since posting it either. lol
