My opinion agrees with your opinion. I had such a sign for a few weeks, and it didn't cut down on the petting. In fact, people would pet while reading the sign. I suspect the people who "advised" you of this were looking for an excuse. Oh, no sign, so I didn't know. Which is crap. If you had a sign, there'd be some other reason, like "I just couldn't help it" or some other such nonsense.
