    Default Man with out of control dogs offleash

    We have a new neighbor. He's walking 2 x GSD girls. Offleash, only they are not 'with him', they are behind the tree's hunting the ducks and he cant see. They are not under control, or within his line of vision even.
    I let him know that his dogs are approaching a nesting site, and worrying the birds. He told me to mind my own f*ing business, and id best move my dogs out of his dogs way, as they aint friendly!

    I just left him to it. And we walked back. All 3 dogs behaved well, Brian did want to make friends with the nasty man though

    Can you believe some idiots!

    Lovely, he sounds like a charmer Hope he doesn't cause too much drama.

    Problem is if his dogs are obnoxious it will be them that gets in trouble not him!

    I hate people like that. If I didn't think it was my f'ing business I wouldn't say anything - but outright breaking the law - is my business, especially if gets done on my favourite off leash park and threatens the off leash status of that park for everybody. Grrr....

    Don't get me started on people who won't pick up after their dogs either.

    Given he pretty much threatened you "his dogs aint friendly" - I'd be having a quiet chat with the police - not the council about that one. What a bully.

    Whilst i was out the back paddock, i checked my neighbours fence the dogs have been tearing at to get to the trapped pug in neighbours garden. Its getting looser and wont hold them for much longer.
    I put a note through neighbours door as they are out, alerting them that the dogs are nearly under the fence and her pug is in danger. Ive removed a panel in the adjoining fence so the pug can come into our garden. As it gets on with mine. the GSD's shouldnt be able to jump the fence, but should they, there will be trouble. Im keen to avoid what i fear is coming, for the pugs sake.

    Have you reported these dogs yet? At least get it recorded so when the crap fan cluster happens, then at least council and the owner can't say "we had no idea".

    No Hyacynth, hadnt reported it, till we got film. But i think you maybe right, to report now, will at least have a record somewhere.
    Though, dude with hi vis vest, aussie accent is a bit wide a description, but narrows a little with 2 female GSD's.
    I'll call them today.

    Yep, excellent advice Hyacinth - it's important that there is a record of complaints - I would also be talking to any other neighbours affected and suggest they complain too. The more the better. I'm speaking from experience here, our council's animal control officer showed no interest in roaming dog problems until we all got on the bandwagon and started calling him every time we saw dog/s in question. The other thing it does is put the onus of responsibility squarely at the feet of the authorities - if a problem has been reported (more than once even better) and they don't act, if an incident occurs it leaves them wide open to be seen as negligent. The only way to get the authorities interested in this area is to make them liable if something goes wrong. Then they'll get off their bum. Bernie I hope you have a better council than we do when it comes to dog control....

    It would seem that Hume city council are not that interested in policing animal licensing laws.

    If i can find out the man's name and address, and provide it to them, they can then follow it up. (ie. i do their work for free)
    I aksed if my call would be recorded/logged, was assured my call is logged, however, without name/address, unable to follow up.

    Yep sounds about the same as ours. Our council's dog control officer told me exactly the same thing - you tell me where the dog comes from and I can go talk to the owners. Unable to follow up because they don't want to follow up I reckon, and I'm not convinced our calls are always logged either, regardless of what we're told.
