"YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT ANY VISITOR CAN SAFELY ACCESS YOUR FRONT DOOR WITHOUT ENCOUNTERING YOUR DOG".
Signs sush as 'Beware of the dog’ or ‘Warning Guard dog’ and other similar signs could show and be argued that by showing such a sign, the owner is aware that their dog was dangerous.
It should be remembered that under the amended 2014 Dangerous Dogs Act law, it quotes that ‘A dog doesn’t have to bite to be deemed dangerous in the eyes of the law’ and this new legislation now covers PRIVATE HOMES as well as public places, so the most important point to consider is how to keep unexpected visitors or delivery drivers safe on your property.
You need to limit your liability and to try and make sure that people can safely access your front door without encountering your dog.
Our signs were made to work with the law, limit your liability and inform people entering your land that there is a dog on the premises. This is court could be argued that you gave enough and adequate notification to allow you to be able to secure the dog to make entry safe for your guest.
