It's kind of like warnings on toys or chemicals... warning someone doesn't assume responsibility.
I'm not sure about that only because I had a dog that I knew had the POTENTIAL to bite because she had exhibited signs. I bought a beware of dog sign and was told by the animal control officer that lived near me that by posting that sign, I was admitting that I knew my dog was a potential threat. (I ended up giving the dog to my brother because at the time I was in a townhouse and around far too many people to have a dangerous dog.)
I would think that if you had a fence problem and told a boarder you were aware of it... then you would be admitting guilt. As for the warnings on toys... people sue and people win......
