Ah John Glenn, I did a school project on him when I was little. I thought you had accidentally mixed up their names. My B.

You can buy various patches that say "In Training" "Do Not Pet".

Yep I ordered a leash sleeve from an Etsy shop that just snaps on ...it's bright yellow with BIG BLACK LETTERING -- one side says "in training" and the other side says "do not pet" ...has already stopped people from rushing her.

K9 is an abbreviation of canine. I don't believe it can be owned by anyone.

I have a "caution: working K9" sticker for the back of my vehicle for a variety of purposes, and my male Hunter used to wear a harness with a reflective "K9 Unit" badge for when we do wildlife control for a local Airport... they require him to be vested/reflective (I have a reflective airport vest myself) because we are in and around the tarmac and generally in high security areas. We are officially referred to as the "Wildlife Control K9 Unit". I have since switched to a "WORKING K9" badge for his vest, as I find it more appropriate, and I have a "PROTECTION K9" badge I pop on it for IPO/bitework for fun.

Honestly, a highly visible harness with "DO NOT PET" and/or "IN TRAINING" is the best method of keeping people from petting your dog, in my experience.

Something like this:



I'm sure they come in highly visible orange, too!

People tend to stare at the dog before they look at you, so they will see the vest first, before they would see a shirt you are wearing.

You can do this:

Service Dog Harness: DogSport Gear

with this:

DogSport Gear:K9 ID Badges

I'd rather just put a DO NOT PET collar on my dog if I didn't want people to approach. I know of a couple people that use the "K9 unit" velcro collar panel for their IPO dogs, I think that is misuse and shouldn't be done if they aren't affiliated with a dept.

There are plenty of shirts you can order with the word K9 on them, or hats.
I agree. it's all for attention. the stickers, the shirts, the vests. most people aren't maniacs, you say no and they leave you alone. and shirt or no shirt, no one owes to give you space. if you need special space then don't walk the streets.

my not so humble opinion.

thanks E hatch....the girl who made my leash sleeve also makes the light weight little vests for dogs...think I might see about one of those. Although I do like the extra handle on that heavy duty vest.
