    When I had strife a lot of years ago, I had a Beware of Dog sign. I was told to put up a Guard Dog on Duty sign.
    The more people I meet, the more I like my dogs.

    I have Beware of Dog - Please shut the gate. and another one furthur up on the top stairs gate (Beware of dog enter at own risk)

    To me that sign has always read as 'Be Aware dogs are around' no one likes a surprise Mastiff X running up to you..lol

    Its stupid either way really. If you have a sign they can sue because you knew you had a danger, if you don't you didn't warn them..

    Yeah that's exactly what i said and they agreed with me and just said there's nothing we can do about it, that's just the way it is. We had an incident two years ago with Shadow biting a guy that came into our yard and he tried getting her put down but the coucil guy that came around to talk to mum and dad said '' you shouldn't have been in their yard to start with, the dogs property and the dogs duty to guard it so by you tresspassing, thats your own fault and there's nothing further to follow up with it, but if it was to our acknowledge he was there then she would have been in trouble and so would we" but that was then, i don't know about now.

    A NO ENTRY, ACCESS DENIED sign is all you need.

    Default Dogs on Property sign

    Sue them back

    I would sue them for the damages when they drop your telly because your Mastiff has taken a chunk out of his butt. I would also hike it up by claiming vet bills to have the taste of his butt taken from out of the dog's mouth.

    The law has gone too far, to the point where we protect the criminal too much these days. It used to be that if you went over someones fence or broke into somebodys house where there was a dog present then you deserved all you got and nobody had any sympathy for you whatsoever.

    What the...?

    That's a bit of a comparison considering as a US citizen, if someone comes onto your property you can shoot them...

    We live in a litigious world - simple as that

    Default Coming over the fence

    Sorry Occy

    But it seems that we have resorted to litigation for the sake of litigation in some areas. I think everybody would agree that it should be that if you are commiting a crime then you have no recourse. Tresspass is a crime.

    You can get to our front door without encountering a dog, but beyond that you run the risk of encountering a dog.

    Gold Coast council (in lowercase) has a sign on the perimeter fence of Southport swimming pool that says ‘Dangerous dog declared by Gold Coast city council’.
    There’s no dog there, but the council says it keeps a dangerous dog.

    It may be an old sign for a previous guard dog, or the dog may guard the place at night or perhaps its just a knock off sign to deter people.

    Trained certified guards are declared dangerous.

    I remember back in WA years and years ago when the new regs came about for dangerous and restricted dogs, all these people went out and got the striped DD tape that went on the dogs collars so people would think they had a dangerous dog and stay away from them lol.

    They wernt declared dangerous, but people saw the collar and thought they must be dangerous dogs.
    The AMO's cracked it and said you cant do that lol. who cares!

    I too have debated about putting up a sign- but decided against it as you can't open our gate from the outside and anyone who comes up to the gate that doesn't know George's name is encountered with a big barking Newfoundland which I think is warning enough not to enter! (although anyone who knew about the breed would know that he'd be more likely to drown you in drool than bite!!)
