we have a 8 yr old beagle.
He is food obsessed.
He regularly CHEWS through the chicken fence to eat the eggs and chook food (very happy to be friends with the chooks).
Yesterday he chewed through our 6 foot external fence, went 4 house up via the bush at the back of the properties, entered someones house via their cat flap and ATE THEIR ENTIRE DINNER which was on the table for 4 people, they were momentarily in another room.
So I get a knock on the door from the neighbour bringing our dog home, and complaining that he has eaten all their dinner! I am horrified!!
1. what if I cant contain the dog now he has had such an excellent reward for his poor behaviour?
No way I can refence our 2000 sq meter block...
He has managed to create a hole at a corner right angle join of the chain link fence- I have temp fixed it today buy he can be very determined....
2. how the hell will I mend neighbourly relations? a bootle of wine as a gift? what else?
the dog can hardly walk he is so full of food- he looks like he is about to birth triplets...
