Anyone have some sort of K-9 sticker on their vehicle?

I was thinking of getting one for my trucks to one, show I possibly have a K-9 with me in the event of a wreck, and also let the public know there is possibly a K-9 in my truck and to maybe steer folks away from petting my dog when I'm not around.

I see a lot of "K-9 Unit" stickers but I dont want to come off as a cop so I'd rather stay away from such words. Anyone try have this going on?

i've been looking at a sticker that says,"Caution, over protective German Shepherd on board. Stay back". But theres other i would consider as well. generally as long as "they" know there may be a large dog on board such as a German Shepherd, people tend to stay clear.

I have a vinyl cutout of a GSD on my rear window, my uncle makes custom car graphics and was nice enough to make one for me, i'll have to snag a picture of it.

I have one on my van CAUTION K9. I asked for the sticker that does NOT say "police" or "unit". I put it on there because with weather like we have right now I have dogs in my van at work so I can take them out on breaks or before or after work to train and track on the property where I work. That way no one can look in and call security because there's dogs in the van. Duh! The sticker says so. I didn't want to come off as a cop either (not that any real law enforcement units are driving Mazda MPVs) so I have a few other GSD/dog stickers on there as well. I figure that makes it obvious I'm a dog trainer/enthusiast not a cop. No one has ever mistaken the vehicle as a law enforcement vehicle (I base this on how people drive, I figure if they thought I was a cop they would not pass me going 95mph).

My Jeep has "Caution Working Dogs" on the hard top glass. I figure it's vague enough to describe a whole bunch of different dog activities. People can't reach in to pet, anyway, since the glass doesn't open. When we're at events, I have a wire crate in the back and just have the back glass open.

I also have a spare tire cover that says "Caution Working Dogs" but don't currently have it on my Jeep.

Me too!!! :D Ever since the weather got cooler Cisco has been coming with me to work. I can let him out several times through out the day and then go straight to the field after work for some training. :)

People actually mistake me with a cop all the time before I put the kennel logos. I used to see them come down flying on the highway, as soon as they spotted me, they would slow down and get behind me. :rofl: It would happen every time! But then again, there are a lot of Suburbans out there used by cops/FBI/etc.

It's been very nice, having the puppy at work instead of having to go home! Plus since I work on a college campus, he is getting TONS of socialization and we're practicing all sorts of stairs, elevators, bridges, crosswalks...

If you just want text, any place that does vinyl lettering can make them for you and they're not terribly expensive. (I think I paid $20 for my text.) A lot of the online decal manufacturers will also do custom pieces if you send them the graphics. On our past vehicle (the Escape) we had custom window decals I had made.

Silly question, can you remove it and apply to a new car or if you get a new vehicle you have to get new decals?
