    Default eyeballing

    Snoopy and Mr. Rotti next door have been eyeballing each other through the mesh fence.

    My neighbours house is quite close to ours eg both at the top of a ridge in undulating country.
    He rigged up a running wire between 2 large trees so Rotti can run for about 30 metres parallel
    to our fence line. Yay.

    Snoopy has not been comfortable with this but I always spoke calmly to him saying Rotti needs to run and play also.
    So after a few days of consistent eyeballing the shite hit the fan.

    Rotti got over excited yesterday and broke the wire ran up to the fence and luckily the shrubs prevented
    anyone from jumping or it would have been a very bad situation. After a big argument they both calmed down and
    I took Snoopy inside.

    I have covered the fence with weedmat as it is not see through like shadecloth.
    I cannot think of what else to do, I suppose I will find out tomorrow if I have done the right thing.

    The neighbour also went out this morning and bought some timber, I could hear him drilling into masonry
    so he must be doing his own fortifications. He has never spoken to us ever (his brother was the sociable one
    but he has moved out now.) He lives alone and the Rotti is his only companion.

    So I suppose my question is - are they better off being able to see out or not?

    Maybe not if Snoopy is not a fan of him. I am sure the Rotti loves having any sort of contact with another animal if it is on a run the whole time though

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    I just double pailed our back fence so the evil gang of shihtzu's behind us cant $h!t stir Mojo.....worked a treat. Now the whole neighbour hood dosnt have to listen to thier shenanigans. I think you've done the right thing.

    The run has proved itself not secure so I dont think he will be rigging the wire up again.
    The brother had made the run before he left.
    His dog goes to work with him some days and seems to be allowed inside.
    I would be happy to help him with some fencing but he does not speak to me or anyone else.

    Today is windy and the weedmat is making plastic noises.
    Snoopy was a bit spooked by it so is staying away from the fence, which is not a bad thing.

    Just coz neighbour doesnt initiate conversation, does not mean he wont when approached directly.

    Directly approach him, say that you notice your dogs have an issue, can you both work on introducing dogs in neutral zone. Teaching them how to interact, then both on yours, then his property. Or, put the run line out of sight of your dog?

    Rotties will react at a fence line, just like most dogs do. A rottie is similar to a lab, food driven mostly. Use that to your advantage.

    Thanks Bernie, the Rotti did not start the threats it was Snoopy. (pointerXX)
    The neighbour is making some arrangements of his own, if he walked around in the yard I would say Hi
    but he stays inside. He has a m/health issue that I would prefer to not discuss here.
    I was home alone yesterday so while it would have been the best day to approach him (as we were
    both outside) I thought.. ummm maybe another day when the husband is here for backup.
