Yes. Though, I also take a barking dog seriously. I would never enter a property with unfamiliar dogs running free without the owner present.
I know some people just put that there to scare people off from doing any damage to the home or family.... however, why take the chance?
If I saw that sign and someone invited me in, I would definitely ask if the dog was put away or if he was ok for me to be there. Some owners these days have NO idea how to raise a dog and they end up extremely aggressive. I don't put myself in the position to get bit.
I live in a pretty safe area, but I still may be putting one up soon as well. Not that Z is ill tempered because she is far from that, it's just for safety of my home. If there's a sign, then no one can claim they didn't know. If you jump my fence and get bit... that's not my fault or the dogs, you were warned and still proceeded with your troublemaking. In my opinion... home owners need to do that these days more to cover their own rears, instead of 'scare' people off. Because these days with the law... lord knows, someone could win a lawsuit because they got bit while trying to break into a house. It's ridiculous, but unfortunately very true.
There was once a case going on here in FL where a man broke into a house and on his way in, some how broke his leg on like the window ledge or furniture...... He sued the home owner.. and WON!!!! Owning a home these days is not easy, you really have to watch out.
