HA HAI have postd a NO TRESPASSING sign. Basically enter at your own risk.........THE RISK BEING ME AND MY 9mm!!
I use Farmers and they don't use a list. They just want to know if you have a dog or cat and if it has ever bitten. If someone with a biting Yorkie admits the dog has bitten, they will not get insurance from Farmers. I just wonder how many owners actually admit their dog has a bite history.What sucks, is that small dogs that bite aren't on the "list" because their bite isn't viscous or anything. My Aunt's Yorkshire Terrier bit EVERYONE.....but if my Dobie bit someone once...I would be in trouble.
I have a sticker on the glass side light on my door as well - it has the Doberman head and "Doberman Pinscher Club of America" on it - came with my membership a few years agoThis thread is very informative. Thanks to all!
As for the sign.. We have a 3" window sticker of a dobe head on the glass of the front door.
It's good to have a sign of some sort. But not one that promotes your dog as being vicious. Because this just gives ppl a reason to whine and complain. I love the idea of the "Doberman's at play".This is a very informative thread. I didn't know some companies black list dobermans or boxers for that matter and I had no idea about the beware of dog sign. So why do they even make these signs if they are bad to have?? Wouldn't you get in more trouble for not having a sign and someone broke into your house and your dog bit them rather than having a sign that warns them?? This world is so sue happy, you have to be extra careful with everything you do these days.
LOL couldn't agree more!The major insurance companies by us don't have a bad dog list. Alot of the smaller ones do. I would hope if I ever have to pay a higher premium for a doberman, I would atleast get an additional discount for having a "remote anti-theft deterent". I think its only fair.
Brum......that was funny! I can see the thief now...........sweating, fumbling thru each lock on the first door, getting past the dobies and then seeing that there are even more locks on the next door.........some twisted nightmare! I say you should just put a stack of money on the TV, so they can take the TV and the money......because like you said........HE HAS BLOOMING WELL EARNED IT!!!!! :rotate1:Our insurance company takes into account that we keep dogs,by reducing the premium as i think most do in this country,i tend to think that if a thief can get through the multiple lock systems,the four by now screaming Dobes in the conservatory,the second set of multiple locks on the main part of the house,the alarm system,and carry away my tv set (which i can barely lift myself) THEN HE HAS BLOOMING WELL EARNED IT!!!!!!
