    Do you know for a fact they let him out into the street? No. so shut up about it. they DONT have to call you, your dog shouldnt be out int he first place,

    The thread title here is "your opinions please" so either take out opinions like a man instead of trying to shoot them all down, or dont ask for them

    Like i said, i fixed the problem as best i could on my side with the knowledge i had.

    My problem is this, as i have said numberous times now! Why say you're going to call if you arent going to. I went to them and didnt confront them at all, we had quite a normal conversation so its not like they were under pressure to say they will call. They suggested it. They could have said, "i knew nothing about it" or get stuffed but they didnt, thats why im pissed off.

I really hope your dogs dont get out, it will happen one day and as much as you think youre top shit coz you think you "dog proofed" your yard it will come back to you.

    Thanks.
    My dogs have got out. And now they cant. The big one doesnt even try and the one who does is now confined inside the house and not allowed in the yard without supervision except for short periods because i take FULL responsibility for my dogs and dont blame the neighbours.

    Somethign you should be doing similar to

    So there *pokes tongue*

    If you have a serial digger you need to work out more permanent ways to contain him.

    Does he only get out when you aren't home or just when he is unsupervised in the backyard?

    If it only happens when you aren't home invest in a dog run, or crate him inside.
    If it happens when you are home either supervise more diligently or concrete around the border of the yard.

    my dogs are allowed at the front... they dont go anywhere... They dont try and get out because they are given loads of excercise and stimulation so when they are home all they do is SLEEP!

    Gday Dave085. Sorry to hear ya cant find your dog. I had a similar drama with my Ridgeback digging under the fence. Luckily i would always catch him before he escaped as he was a big dog he needed a lot of time to dig a big enough hole. I eventually had to concrete in a strip of pavers along the fence line which worked a treat but wasnt a cheap fix. Before i got around to doing this i used a strip of concrete mesh just layed down on the grass. It was easy to remove so i could mow there and it was to heavy and awkward for him to move. Ugly but it worked.

    Im not sure if confronting your neighbours is the right thing to do mate, i'm not really sure what the answer to your drama is, but i thought my experiences with this type of escaping dog situation might be of some use. If they did let him roam, well yeah i guess that is poor form as i wouldnt let anyones dog do that, as ya said a phone calls not hard but as others have said they might not even know anything about it. Whatever the case mate, I hope ya get him back safe and sound.
    Cheers,
    Sean.

    I can see why you are upset but suggest you to move on. I think it is pointless to talk to so called your neighbour. Besides you do not know what your neighbour would do to your dogs.....deep breath and think about how you can keep your dogs safe.
    I love cooking but I love eating even more.

    Ive calmed considerably now and im not going to, and never wanted to confront them in an angry manner.

    I guess at the end of the day i just wanted to vent. If someone makes an agreement with me i expect them to keep their word, just as i would the other way around. Their dog was still in their yard so i find it hard to believe that Rex wasnt let out.

    Im disappointed and sad that the way neighbours once interacted is now long gone. Yeah, obviously i need to do more, and spend more on fixing the problem.

    I guess i just needed somewhere to vent and this has done the job.

    Vents are allowed.
    What do you think can be done now to curb this escapee?
