    Default $295 fine for my dog barking at another

    This sucks.
    This is the price i am paying for anti social behaviours of my pack.

    The crime my dog committed, was to run through my open back gate to follow my husband into a offleash parkland we back onto, from behind the trees came a border collie. (My lovely GSD knows this dog. Its the same border collie that attacked and bit our 12 week pup. He was chased off by bernie on that occasion, out of our property.)

    Fast forward a year. And when bernie saw the BC, he ran at it and barked. I called him back, he came immediately. No contact, no physical damage. What was wrong, was that my gate was open, braking a law that states i must have them securely contained.

    During same incident, the other 'alpha male' in my pack, and the BC owner, swapped insults, both were in peak drive, words like wan**er, Moll etc were being used between them. Bless them.

    I had time to take the dog in, secure the pound, and go back out to the back into the paddock, and they were still at it.
    zzzzzzzzz

    Im telling you this story, because, sometimes, often i suspect. There are some 'alpha's' that let your dog and you down. Beware folks.

    The woman is tiresome. She is a character around here. Known for doing weird stuff. Like mowing a path in the meadow for her dogs to walk on? In a nature reserve?
    I was asked if i could prove this accusation. So i showed them a video of her, mowing past the back of a my house, a path for her dogs. As she passes my 'space' she starts sticking her middle finger up and waving it at me, as she's mowing a nature reserve.
    Her fine: will be thousands. Karma police need a helping hand sometimes.

    Wow I bow to your evil side. The karma police are duly assisted.

    I assume the fine is for the open gate ? Doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Your dogs are not classified as dangerous I suppose? So surely 'securely contained' is relative? How would you ever open your gate when your breaking the law doing it?

    Are you sure the nature reserve is "off lead" - if so - then they can't fine you for taking your (under effective control?) dog for a walk through there off lead.

    Or both dogs get fined. Makes no sense.

    Your character building moll - looks like it's becoming a sort of harassment. You're going to need to keep logs of it all so you have a case later.

    Mowing a nature reserve for her dogs to walk on.

    Unfortunately they don't lock up the Nutters anymore...that's why there's so many wondering around. We've got a Nutter who rents the granny flat at the back of the property next door...an old bastard who lives by himself and thinks he owns the street.

    I was mowing the nature strip outside our house the other day and I went to push this piece of paper with the lawnmower...this old bastard runs over and says "pick up that paper... pick up that paper don't leave it there" to which I replied " F... off you old bastard mind your own bloody business".

    He then he says "Every time your dogs bark I'm going to ring the council and I'm going to ring the R$PCA too". I said "forgot to take your medication today did you...book yourself into a nursing home". I hope the old bastard does and I'm sure the council has to deal with these Nutters all the time.

    My dog isn't "securely fenced" when I let her off lead in an off lead park / place.

    This thread still doesn't make sense to me.

    However my front yard isn't fenced - so if I let her off lead there and she ran off my property - I'd be in trouble.

    There is a requirement that I don't let her "wander at large" (or off my property without effective control and supervision) but there is no requirement to have her "securely fenced" unless she has already been declared dangerous.
