Came home and she was gone My Other girl went about a year after that, same deal They also stoll my sisters minature ponies, First one about the same time a wes, a heap of dogs went missing at that time. Then a few years ago about 4 of the p[onies went missing and we found out fence had been cut.

    One of my dog walking friends was having her fence damaged on a regular basis by someone pulling the panels off it. So next time they fixed it up, she annointed it with some fresh dog poo.

    This dog stealing thing is horrible. Frosty mostly stays in the house when I'm out but every now and again, she refuses to come in and I don't always have time to catch her so she stays out, like last night. I'd hate to find she wasn't there when I got home.

    But she can be very difficult to catch. And she barks ALOT at people she doesn't like and sometimes quite a bit at people she does like. But that's no guarantee the neighbours would help or notice.

    Apart from leaving dog in house (which isn't exactly proof against anyone who really wants to break in) - is there any other ways that reduce the chances of a dog being targetted?

    cut their balls of helps... i had a heap of people question me about Atlas, it all stopped when he was desexed

    I am at work, they are in their crates, it is only 6 hours tonight, they sleep more than that so it is ok, i think during the day they will be find outside, but not at night - my neighbours are always out and about, and will check if they start to bark.

    That's a good point Hyc, any thing other than the obvious what could a person do??

    There is no way I can have 6 in the house. I just have to have faith in people and my electric fences. Plus my dogs would be miserable to have their freedom cut.

    I know the alternative is horrible, but so would their existence be living with me if I locked them away.

    I Have had it happent twice. Over electric fences, hell they cut the fence to steel the horses, I still dont know what else to do. I have to wonder is that isnt the reason my girl attacks people, I remember there being a bunch of dogy looking cars around when her attitude changed. My theory: Someone tryed to nab her. She got scared and bit them, They let her go. Now she attachs people so she has to be locked up when Im not there with her

    i wish my dogs were not so good with people. Atlas doenst care, and kaos will go home with anyone who has a car.

    I dont know if that would be the same if someone came over the fence that didnt know them? I wish i could try it out to see their reactions! I know my lawn mower man/pets at peace guy (one and the same) had no problems, but they knew him from obedience.

    anyone want to try to jump my fence and tell me what they do?

    I'm home pretty much all the time, but when I go out, it's never for very long & the girls are always left inside if I can take the 2 young 'uns with me.

    Frosty would be different with every person. I don't know how she decides.

    She liked the Indian man who came trying to collect money for bowel cancer research. I think some of those charity door to door guys get a percentage of what they collect - I think they probably earn it too, but I had nothing for him yesterday. And she hated (and so did I) the Indian guy who came and tried to make me change my energy supply company. And the meter man came the same day. But I think he got barked at because he ran to the meter and back without saying hello properly - they only get a 30 second per meter read time allowance and in our suburb, all the meters are down the back - about 40m from the street. And got to hope there are no booby traps along the way.

    She barks at everything that goes along the back lane. Wattle birds, magpies, cats, school kids, commuters, my evil rubbish dumping neighbour...

    That's exactly what we did!
    We started collecting the poop from the yard and instead of binning it, put it in a pile under the fence where they were jumping over

    We have an uber security system on our house, and all the signage to go with it on every window.
    Anyone think that those dangerous dog signs would work to deter people?

    My two dogs were taken when I lived in Rockhampton. They were both in our back yard, dividing fences were over six foot high and locked, but the side fences on one side were low and in bad repair (neighbour objected to us replacing the fences), dogs had been on property for almost 18 months and never gone anywhere on their own.
    They disappeared within 1/2 hour. Our neighbour went out at 4.30, the dogs were there, I got home at 5.00 and they were gone.
    We were to find out later that the two of them were a fair way from home within the hour (someone who saw our posters phoned and said they thought it strange to see a GSD being followed by a SBT and actually noted time etc), so would have had to have been taken (driven) to a dumping spot. They split up that night during a storm and went in different directions. Zookie the GSD went west, Ralph my SBT went east. Unfortunately Zookie was ran over and killed 24 hours later and Ralph was taken to a vet by a nice person where we found him 3 days later.
    The people we believe took them knew our movements i.e when we went to work, when we came home etc.
    There are some really bad people in this world, but fortunately there are some absolutely wonderful people too.
