Admit it. As diehard animal lovers, our pets pretty much rule our lives – and our household. Let guests know what they’re stepping into from the get-go with a snazzy sign that admits your dear dog (or cat or rabbit) is in charge.

Besides, it makes an awesome way to turn away unwanted visitors without taking the blame. Just tell them “Sorry, man, but my dog says you can’t come in.”

The pictured sign was donated to an Arizona horse rescue auction benefit (yaay!). All new signs made to order. That means you can pick your shape, size, color and exact wording you want on it. Go for the dog shape or pick a cat, rabbit, rat, ferret or whatever other cool pet you have.

More details:

Weather resistant, rust-resistant paint finished off with clear coat.
Wire loop for easy hanging. Multi-tone body hues with whimsical Rynski details.

How I made it:

Metal indoor/outdoor art is created with love and care by first cutting out shape from sheet metal, filing down the edges with a Dremel and pounding out kinks with a flat hammer and anvil combination that the neighbors and my dogs hate.
