We have no leash law here. The neighbor dogs are much bigger than ours, the black lab is friendly and just loud, the white dog is mix of something, dunno what. But the white one is snarly, tooth barring mean. I don't think the owners care. And yeah a pen for our dogs may be needed. Just seems wrong to punish them with jail, but there is no way we could fence the others out, it would cost way too much. Thanks!

Don't worry! By lunch time you can't remember what you had for breakfast.

Jeff is going to have to slim down A LOT to look like that kimono looks like.

This is kinda off topic:

As everyone knows we changed our S&B location last summer. We love our new home. Our sweet little dogs have been adjusting, the one called Sadie is in heaven. The one called Molly waited and waited for us to go home. But after taking her "trailer" for a few trips and returning here, she has finally decided she is home.

We planned to fence in an area for them, but as time has passed we found they do really fine and never leave our property. Sadie loves to run and has a fine time with her freedom. Molly is more cautious and waits for company before heading to the pond or woods.

Our neighbor has 2 dogs who are terrorizing our dogs. On Friday one of them came over here and attacked Sadie, who of course wasn't having any of that, and she ran at the dog, then turned at the driveway edge to come back and the other dog BIT her in the thigh.
I went to the sheriff's office and filed a report, after going to the neighbor's and telling them what had happened. I said that dog is dangerous, please keep it home. The reply was HUH?
So all you fine diplomats, what do you suggest I do?

For the last 2 months our dogs don't like to leave the deck unless I have them on leash, I guess they think I will protect them if they are safely tethered to me. This of course means that I have to get fully dressed and bundled up, first thing every morning to take them out. Once we get away from the house I take the leashes off and they are fine.

The dogs from next door were back over here in our yard barking at us today.
I like Tim's idea, but I hate to see animals hurt. I think your original plan to have a fence for them is a better solution. If you do it yourself you are only out the materials.

You would not have to fence in the whole area, just a big enough run where they could do their business and frisk about for awhile.

I live in a country setting where dogs run wild. The way we handle problem dogs is we shoot them. Red Ryder BB guns will shoot your eye out, but it will also send a dog a running. After a few times they get the message!

LOL that reminds me of the way my dad used to do the neighborhood dogs that tried to raid the trash cans ... he's hide out in the basement watching with a slingshot and shoot pellets at them when they attempted to knock the cans over... even if he didn't get them... the ping on the can startled them pretty good and sent them elsewhere...

There was lots of black volcanic sand still there when I was there the last time. I'll let you know in 7 sleeps or so!

Judy,

I have read this idea for discouraging dogs -- put ammonia in a spray bottle and liberally "mark" the areas you want dogs to avoid. Perhaps you can create a buffer zone between your pups and the neighbor's beasts.

I do think a small fenced area for your pups is a good idea. It would be a safe place for them to take a potty break. I would suggest a 6’ high solid fence rather than wire might make them feel more secure.
