    Default Visiting Dogs

    Well this morning we had a visit from the pup next door, She had dug under the fence, I had noticed her head under the fence since yesterday afternoon but since there was bricks in the dirt I thought she wouldn't get under the actual fence.

    She was not agressive at all, very playful and happy to be with Leo and Lilly (up at my mums for my grandmas 80th head back to sydney on thursday). I was tempted to let her stay and play till the owners noticed. (since she had been watching under the fence most of the previous day and been digging for a good while I thought they would of noticed..no they didn't)

    I think i heard them call her Bella, she is a pretty dog, still a pup I don't think much more then 6 months... same colours as our two but much slender. She took a real interest in Leo. I think he may have a gf lol.


    Owners didn't seem to fussed when I brought her back to them, I obviously had woken him up. But anywho I was going to suggest that she is welcome to come play with us for a while if they liked. But the door was closed pretty quickly on me so I didn't get the chance.



    I have heard that putting dog poo in the holes and covering them back up will help stop dogs digging. I will give it a try. Even though it wasn't ours that dug through (no dirt was on our side of the fence) will it still work on another dog?


    long post I know, so thanks for reading through

    I still have the BC next door trying to get here. There are bricks, blocks of wood, chicken wire, and he still sticks his head under.

    When he was a baby puppy he ran straight under the fence and into our yard. There was no way for me to block the fence as he'd just push straight through.

    I hope you get it sorted with this girl She must see and hear the fun and want to join in!

    Yeah I guess its like putting a mouse trap on a piece of chocolate for me, I will just go around the trap and still get the chocolate lol.

    Ah well, Im not worried about it really, they played nicely together but only takes a second for it to turn bad though.

    That's what I was thinking too. I spoke to my NDN's and they started taking their BC for regular walks and doing training with him (funny as anything to listen to, he talks to them the entire time they're trying to teach him!) and has settled, but anytime there is something interesting going on there is his head poking under the fence!

    Well she came back again lol

    I let her stay and play with us all in the yard for a good 30/45mins, lovely girl. She wore these two pups out completly lol.

    I was vacuuming & both pups were having a sleep on lounge and I turn around and she is sitting at the side door waiting to come in lol. She is a smart little girl too, knew that the leash meant home time...laid down on the ground and wouldn't move once it was on this time lol.


    So I went over dogless just to let the owners know she was back incase they were worried she was missing...I spoke with the woman owner this time, told her she is welcome to stay and play and is no trouble at all I can bring her back over later. She came and got her straight away though Owner said she thinks she is a Staffy x bullmastiff breed, rspca rescue dog so she isn't entirely sure.

    -Im secretly hoping she comes back under the fence again lol im naughty i know -
    I hope she doesn't get chained up because of it though

    I'd be having a word with the neighbour and making sure pup cannot get under fence. If something goes wrong and dog is injured you may well find youself being held responsible. It doesnt matter how nice the dog is, they belong in their own yards.

    I read a thread on dol the other day about a pup who was injured after sticking front leg under the neighbours fence. $4000 vet bill!!!

    Crazy world alright. I used to have this huge dog that used to jump
    into the yard and harrass my female Bully. Council wouldn't do anything as dog couldn't be caught. After we got our male bully I rang the council and said i was concerned my boy might scrap with the stray and injure him. Even though the stray jumps into my yard I was told I could be held responsible if he was injured on my property. It's so wrong that you can be held responsible
    because other dog owners choose to be irresponsible.
