      The company providing security services must hold a Class B license.

      The handler must have a Class D license to provide security or guard services.

      There are no requirements nor regulation of guard dog services in Florida, other than a company providing security services must be licensed.

      Florida Statutes provides that any dangerous animal being transported in a motor vehicle must have the words: DANGER BAD DOG in no less than two inch print on the vehicle transporting. (This is why police K9 units will put DANGER BAD DOG on their trucks/cars, in case the animal is an aggressive protection K9)

        If you mean "in-house," then its permissible. If someone attempts to "rent out" or otherwise "provide security services," even guard dog services, they must be licensed in the State of Florida (Class B), and the handlers must be licensed with a Class D license as humans providing security services. The dogs themselves are not regulated in Florida.

          Thanks, I was wondering why I couldn't find anything on how dogs were regulated.

              Why? The dog can't read.

                        If I was a K9 officer, I would elect to put that on my car.

                          Keep in mind, this isn't some rule about police K9s. Its a general law about any dangerous dog.

                          The DANGER BAD DOG is designed to be simple wording that allows a child to understand that the dog is "bad," and they should not approach it. Children can be stupid, and want to pet dogs that will eat them.

                            Does this wording go on the vehicle only, or do you have to put a vest on the dog that states it as well?

                            I'm interested to know this would work with canines in hospitals, since a lot of them are used for therapy.
