Make your ground rules clear to everyone.
There are some times when Fido isn't welcome, and dogs are forbidden in indoor places of business in some states. Make sure everyone knows the rules at your establishment.
Help ensure safety.
Dog-related injuries are the second most common cause of children's hospitalization. Signs like these may help reduce your liability in case of dog injury.
Maintain proper hygiene.
Dogs don't wash their paws, a line dresses and all too often they do their business where they please, so hospitals, churches and places where children gather aren't always the right places for people to bring their furry friends.

What dogs do no dog signs apply to?

No dogs means no dogs, with a few notable exceptions: service dogs and K9-unit police dogs.
Laws vary state-by-state, but typically, police service dogs – or PSDs – are given similar latitude to police when they need to enter a building or workplace in the lawful conduct of their duties; especially since these animals will be accompanied by a handler, expect that even if you have a "no dogs allowed" sign up, it won't apply to police dogs. In at least one state, Michigan, even interfering with a police dog carrying out its duties can carry a penalty of $10,000 and 5 years in prison, while in South Carolina it's a crime to "taunt [or] tease" a police dog, so it behooves you to tread carefully where these dogs are concerned!  
No Dogs Allowed Signs
Under the Americans with Disabilities act, service dogs are welcome to go virtually everywhere their masters can go.
Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act protects the use of service animals by people who need them, and in general, unless a public place can't operate with the dog around, the dog's owner must be accommodated. Public places aren't required to care for the animal (for example, if it needs food or water), but as long as it’s accompanied by its owner, the dog should be permitted in any place where the public would usually be allowed.
Under some circumstances, people with emotional disabilities or mental retardation can benefit from the company of service dogs, too, and there are times when these people can be exempt from (for example) landlords' no-pets provisions. Under federal law, people with disabilities can expect "reasonable accommodations" for animals that help them through their day, and while these laws to some extent constitute uncharted territory when it comes to private places of business, there are legal precedents for waivers when it comes to housing. If a landlord would suffer an undue burden they may maintain their policy, but courts have ruled that some people who may not have physical disabilities constitute exceptions to the usual practices of property law. How these exceptions would affect posted signs is a matter untested by law.
Laws and regulations, including the ADA, change with some frequency. It is important that you research to ensure compliance with local and federal regulations and standards.
