    Default Feral Dogs next Door

    So we have just moved into a new "Dog friendly " Place and I love it!

    One thing thats a bit of a pain is the feral dogs next door.

    Barking, wining, fighting, jumping up on the fence, more barking, growling, more fighting.. You cant walk anywhere near the side fence without them losing their sh1t at you. Ruby is reacting fine to it but I am a little hesitant to leave her out the back when we go to work so she is still inside.

    Has anyone lived next to some damn crazy pooches?

    Hi, sorry to hear of your problem. I had the same problem when I used to take Moses with me to look after my Mum who lives only a few doors down the road. The dogs next door would go crazy barking, banging on the fence, trying to stick their heads under the fence and then they would start fighting amongst themselves. It really was a pain. Luckily they have gone now. What are the neighbours like? Do you think you could talk to them?

    I had a friend with similar problems. Their dog had decided to hate the neighbours dog and kept on going on like you described almost all day. In the end my friend decided on an ugly but practical no see through fence. No problems since...

    Its not a huge deal, just a bit annoying. Its a weird shaped yard and we have to try and shove all the kids play stuff ie swing set, trampoline up the back corner so they dont go ape at the fence! I just dont like my life being negatively affected by anyone regardless if its dogs or humans ect

    for being in a dog friendly house finally!

    We have feral dogs next door to us (at the bogan animal neglecter's house) and they will bark and carry on all of the time... they were just out barking at their goats. Harley and Bella will go over and have a go through the fence but I can normally call them back. I think they spend most of their time luckily inside - there is no proper fences there either.

    If it keeps on maybe put a note in their letter box or complain to council!

    Maybe the feral dogs have feral owners? lol. It would annoy me, unfortunately for my Osky, he has learnt how to jump the fence, so we have to keep him inside unless under supervision, and he still tries to sneak a jump, so I imagine it is a pain for my neighbours, we have to sort something out for him, because I feel responsible for what he does. I hope you sort something out.

    LMAO Sean , your right, the dog next door was introduced to my hose many times, that was until his owner ran over, and killed him with his car

    sounds like my neigbourhood, it can get annoying but the way I see it is if no one is complaining about those dogs, there is no way anyone will complain about my dog

    I used the hose with great success against neighbour's rottweiler but the SWF that lived with it was slower to learn. And the GF of the neighbour objected to me hosing her dog. I figured better the hose than ratsack but she didn't understand.

    I went round a couple of times at 6am on Sunday morning to let them know their dog had been barking all night and I had an early start and it shits me right off I didn't get any sleep... I only had to do that twice a few months apart and the SWF got relocated. I don't know where but it wasn't over my back fence any more.

    The reward based way - works best when neighbours are not home, is to chuck a big handful of dog food over the fence if those dogs are ever quiet. ie you wait for 1 second of quiet and chuck a few treats over, next time you wait for 2 seconds quiet, then 1 second then 3 seconds then 1 second etc. Build up the time. Be a bit random about the treat delivery, and occasionally, if they're quiet for longer than usual, jackpot...

    I would do this to my current neighbour's dog except it seems to only bark when the neighbour is home. And then there was the time he wasn't and it maimed and then eventually killed a lorakeet - not fun to hear that squawking... I thought cats were bad. If that dog is in bird hunting mode, I could chuck raw steak over and it wouldn't notice.
