do police units own the title K-9?

I want to put something on a shirt that says something like
K-9 In training ..please don't approach us ....

but I don't know if then I can get in trouble with the police ?


I thought about even putting a twist on it and do something like

Ca-9 in training -- please give us space. ?

They don't own the name or designation. As long as you are not wearing any sort of an issued badge printed on the clothing, or a department name that would falsely identify you as a police officer you should be OK.

Check the statutes in your state. Our statutes in Illinois say nothing about K9 related clothing, wording, or statements as long as a department name is not included.

In cooler weather I often wear a leather Bayern Polizei Diensthundeführer jacket which is the German equivalent of a K9 handler.

Perfectly legal in my state as it is from a foreign department and bears no resemblance to anything worn in the states and has no badge. It is considered "for collector purposes only".

Around here, no one but me knows what it is anyway. They probably couldn't find Germany on a labeled map.

I know several people that have "Caution K-9"on their vehicles. IMO, it is an attention getter.
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.

Nope this would be more like Alan Shepard's Shepherd Shuttle
