    Your daughters friends mother i would imagine (may be wrong) would need to enter your property to drop off or pickup a child safely. Im not sure anyone doing so would imagine there being a danger to the car if they procceed and i wonder if they knew the dog didnt bite so they feel safe entering the property.

    Had you told this person there a danger of your dog "eating" the car...lol.

    My thought is if you hadnt told them of the problem and they would automaticly drive up to the house if not told otherwise, you probably should fix the car.

    I was told once that you have to have direct safe access to your front door.

    We also live on a rural property and we used to have a Blue Heeler, who had to live in the back-yard, because of his delightful way of rounding people up and staring at them. he never bit anyone.

    We now have a sign on our gate saying "newfies about please close the gate" It has pictures of newf's. So we are letting people know that there are large dogs about, we were told that if you put a "beware of the dog" sign up, you are liable for any dog bites, because you have admitted to your dogs being aggressive........I am in NSW. Not sure if this is 100% true.

    In my line of work those signs usually mean "we dont own a dog but we want you to think we do".

    We also have a big sign like that , only because i scored it for free. A mate of mine's dad thinks we are admitting to owning a dangerous dog and if we where to end up in court over my dog attacking someone we wouldnt have a leg to stand on. I wouldnt have a clue if he's wrong or right.

    I must say if someones dog attacked my car i'd be pissed off big time no matter what any sign said.

    I was going to say the same thing, i have beware of the dog signs on my gate despite the fact my guys would lick a burgler to death then help him carry out the valuables.
    It is only a deterent as i have heard what you did...if you have a dangerous dog, the sign admits you know about it and dont have a leg to stand on.
    I think if you know theres a problem, you should lock the gate to avoid having to fix any damage.

    I would expect my visitors cars would be safe , I'm thinking you're up for another respray. Its not like you had a sign up reading "beware,dog will damage rear end of car on your departure"

    And as for the sign , yes , you are admitting you have a 'dangerous dog' if you display a sign that reads " Beware of dogs-Enter at own risk" but if you display a sign that simply reads "beware of dogs" then you're fine ,strange laws..... Like Newfs is fine as it reads like you should be careful of gates ( which you should anyways I know ) instead of mindful of large dogs.

    Your dog did it, yep you are liable just as I would be, sign or not. It is up to you to make sure your dog does not do this.
    I once had a dog with a taste for mudflaps. No idea how many I had to replace.

    Yeah I am going to say you would probably be liable. If they were not invited onto the property my opinion is that you wouldn't though.

    I did have a beware of the dogs sign on our front gate even though the dogs couldn't actually get into the front yard. It was there when we brought the house. I only took it down when dogs started getting stolen so that people wouldn't come looking.

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    Yep, you're definitely out on a limb on this one. You have advertised to the public that you own a dog that puts anyone or anything entering your property at risk.

    Get rid of that sign IMMEDIATELY.

    If you must replace it with something, then use a generic "Please shut the gate". I would not advocate for any reference to dogs. I'm not sure what State you are in, but from experience in Vic {admitedly quite a while ago now}, any advertised warning to the public on or about your property that involves dogs is removal of ALL your legal protections should anyone or anything be damaged by a dog on or about your property.
