Don't have any signs on the house but forever we've had 'Police dogs in transit' on the back of our cars, pet hate is people riding the bumper and this seems to make them back off.

I have "My Rhodesian Ridgeback Lives Here" signs in the porch and on the back gate.

People say that it could encourage 'stealing to order' BUT I prefer it to 'beware' for a few reasons. I also live in a secure place, the back gate is 6.5ft tall and padlocked - and the dog is never in the garden unattended. I don't fancy anyone's chances at getting into the house either ..... but still sincerely hope they don't try!!

Not at home, because everyone knows I've got dogs as they bark when someone comes in the garden.

I'd like a 'please shut the gate' sign though.

i never bothered in our old flat but tia was only a baby while we lived there. we're at my mum's atm and she has them on her house as they were just there when she moved in and despite having no dog, she kept them anyway (good burglar deterrant!).
i don't think i'll bother when we move out again as there isn't really much to 'beware' of with her, but i would do it if it you had to.

I have beware of the dog on both gates and one on the front window saying caution dog running free.

I heard someone say if you have a dog you should have some sort of sign on your window, because it warns the firemen there is a dog in the house, and if they can they'll try to save it.

I was warned about the legal technicalities of putting up 'Beware of the Dog' signs. so I just have multiple Dogs Trust sticker on my window (they come free whenever you sponsor a dog :))
I also have a hand written note on my front door reassuring the posties that there is 'cage' around the letterbox and that Diz cannot get access to their fingers.

I simply want to make people aware that a dog lives in my property, should anything happen to me, not that they are anything to be fearful of.

I have 4!

Front door, back door, french doors, and back gate.

My sis-in-law has the best one I've ever seen...

It has the pic of a GSD [she has one now but did have 5] and it says underneath... ''Go ahead, Make my day!''

:lol:

you are allowed to use other signs tho such as 'dogs running free' or anything that relates to the breed you have like dogless:)

Pets At Home do the ones I have and other types such as 'Dogs Running Free' pretty cheaply.

I have a ''caution dogs running free'' sign for my back gate.

I do need to get a new ''_ dogs live here'' sign for the front window for firemen should there ever be a fire so they know how many dogs to look to save if they can.
