OT, when I was young, some neighbors of ours had very savage dogs, and had a sign saying DOGS. STAY IN CAR, SOUND HORN on their driveway.
Some people, in the US at least, do not need to announce their presence as they are "expected." Meter readers and mail carriers, for example, make it a practice to enter the property and conduct their business without alerting the homeowner since they do not need the homeowner's cooperation or access to the home.
