I told my mum that they should use something similar to that at their German Shepherd club as some of the dogs (including two of ours) are not very dog friendly and it would help prevent new members from letting their dogs wander right up to yours.

Of course then you will have ignorant people thinking your dog is some vicious dog/people/small fluffy animal attacker. It is hard enough to walk a reactive dog down the street when people persist on either not locking their dogs up during the day or letting theirs run right up to yours with faint cries of 'he's friendly!' in the distance.

Good idea in theory and if used in a place where there are only dog knowledgeable people around, but probably not going to be such a good idea when put into practice around the general public.

The people letting them run free probably never heard of leash laws and pounds and they assume the other dog is friendly I had a friend whose German shepherd made house keepers impossible he is sweet if owners were there and aggressive if not there he was one of those military animals who do not pass.

I like this idea! Would have saved me countless run-in's with other dogs. It's not my dog I had to worry about, it was the dumb-dumbs walking their dog RIGHT UP TO MINE. I had to pick him up hundreds of times because people didn't listen to me, "my dog is not socialised" I said. hundreds of times. "that's okay, <insert their dog's nams> is very friendly, won't hurt yours".. **Facepalm**
I wish more people would do this though. Hope it catches on.

I wish there was something like this that was universally known. I am in the process of training my dog to walk on a leash because he is vey reactive and nips and it really pisses me off when kids just walk up to him to pet him. Just because he's cute doesn't mean he's safe to pet...

EDIT: oh this is only for other dogs :/ I would like one for people too...

5G - 1 betta: orange dalmatian VT male "Ty"

This can go viral if we re-post it enough times! I think the chances of it becoming a well-known sign around the country are pretty good thanks to the information age in which we live
