    Neighbour was forced to rehome 2.

    And both me and the ranger agreed, that neither of us knew how to train a dog, NOT to look into a neighbours garden. so neighbours complaint bit him in the arse.
    Some people are terrible! The people along the back fence have a little yappy thing that barks at us everytime we're in our backyard and whenever the dogs are out there too and it starts barking at 5am every morning even if our dogs aren't in the yard, our bedroom window is basically against the fence and it drives me insane because I'm up for work at 2am most mornings and HATE being woken up at 5am on my days off! Plus he digs under the fence, gets into our yard and then stands there and barks at me when I come out to chase him back home.. we spent all weekend concreting the fenceline so he can't dig anymore. Yesterday afternoon I was in the yard playing with the dogs and Meika was barking for me to throw the ball (her bark is quiet and more like a 'talk'), their dog was also against the fence barking but we were just ignoring it. The owner actually had the nerve to stick his head over the fence and tell me to shut my dog up... while his own dog was barking!!! I couldn't believe it!

    Yeah it's weird. I would advise that you consult with your own council. Ask them what your chances are at getting a third dog etc would be the safest way to go. The worst that could happen would be a No on the third dog. Rather that than go out and get another dog, only to MAYBE get caught in the future...

    Council laws about animals? I am sure they vary depends where you live.
    Anyway I do follow them, and should everyone as well. I also complied with
    dangerous dog act. I have warning signs visible to everyone, I added garnishes
    to our standard fence just to make sure that fence is high enough the only thing
    I did not follow as I think its a bit too much is to leash the dog even in your yard
    and I don't make my dog wear muzzle

    Here in NSW councils have no legal right to tell you how many dogs you can or can't have. Some councils try to stand over people like the poor woman a few years back who had three GSD's, she got a letter from the local council saying to get rid of one because your only allowed two dogs.

    This poor woman was heartbroken and said she'll have to move,so she contacted a current affair who contacted the Minister for local Government who said "Councils in NSW have no legal right to tell people how many dogs they can or can't have" I'm sure the woman then told the council to stick their letter where the sun doesn't shine, I know I would.
    The councils know the law but they just like to play God with people's lives, and slip on the swastika when it suits them.

    Most councils have websites, with all this info available on them. So if you dont fancy facing the wrath of mrs unfriendly you spoke to last time, you dont have to.
    God bless the internet in helping us avoid rude stunts.
