I just put a sign on my fence that says BEWARE OF DOG as a precaution but have been told by several that this could hurt me in court if my dog bit someone because im admitting to having an aggressive dog. but that sign says nothing about being mean or aggressive. Does anyone know if this is true?

While dog laws vary by state, that IS indeed true in a lot of states. It's not a good idea to use that wording or anything that could be interpreted as the owner knowing the dog can be aggressive.

The sign I have is a very neutral "DOGS ON PREMISES"
