Buy a shovel


I don't need two shovels. Plus, I've been keeping the shovel outside in case anything popped off. As of today, my Glock goes outside with me.

Chain link only gives those bulldog breeds a launch point. The only real way to stop it would be pounding rebar along your fenceline and putting metal flashing along the bottom 3' of your fence. Way bigger cost than a couple .270s and a shovel

Do you honestly believe you’re dealing with rational neighbors and productive members of society who own a breed of dog that wants to chew your face off?


Based off my one interaction, yes.

Other dogs are 100% capable of doing the same thing as these Pits, however seems to be more common with pits.

If I have to kill them, I'd prefer it be quick.

First, if the neighbor had any real control over her dogs, she would have them chained in the backyard. Second, you can always try to put something in the ground to keep them from getting under the fence. Also since this problem seems to be continuing, your neighbor should be helping in payment of anything that you have to buy to correct the situation.

Other than that, some of the responses on this thread are truly scumbag responses. Ya'll think pits are scumbag dogs but your responses are just as bad.

get the most intense pepper spray you can find and spray them in the eyes any time they do something you don't like. neighbors and dogs will both learn.

re: Neighbor's Pitbull destroying my fence and attempting to get into my yard: Update pg 7
Many years ago my daughter and her toddler lived in an apartment with a small yard separated from the next door apartment by chain link. The couple next door had two Pitts. My granddaughter being a toddler thought the dogs were for her to play with and would put her hand/arm through the chain link to pet them. She did learn not to do that. One day while i was visiting, the owners were outside with their dogs. I simply told them if the dogs did anything to harm my grandchild I would kill them and the dogs. This couple took their dogs and moved about a week later.

You seemingly need to have more interaction with the neighbor. Based on what you have said in the thread, you have only asked them to repair a fence board. As someone mentioned above, you should explained that you are concerned their dogs will be able to get into your yard and attack your dogs or girlfriend. Explain that you will do everything to protect your animals and loved ones if the dogs get into your yard and that the neighbor must be proactive in preventing that situation.

Tell your neighbor straight up, if you dog’s head comes through the fence again, I will be waiting with my gun and will shoot to kill. Sometimes you just have to be blunt!!!

Definitely need to go talk to the neighbor and tell her that if the dog comes through that fence, it’s getting shot and take a gun out there with you every time those dogs are in the back and you need to bring yours out. If the neighbor won’t do anything about it, that’s pretty much what needs to happen if you don’t want your dogs dead

Put an electric wire near the bottom of the fence. They hit that thing a few times, and it won't happen again. Sit there with a hose and wait for the right moment to spray dogs as they hit that wire. please film.

Did this one time, during a drunken state, because my neighbor's dog kept shitting in my yard. Woke up, with a huge hangover, wondering why my grass had a long burn line between our houses. It worked though...

Other posters have stated this but I am going to reiterate how important this is but you need to document every interaction you have with the owner about this and have picture showing the dogs repeatedly damaging the fence separating y’all. You have said that the city of Austin does not look kindly on anyone who kills animals so you need to be prepared for a worst case scenario both for the possibility you have to terminate those dogs and the possibility the city launches an investigation into your use of force on them.

You need to contact your local authorities about how best to document your repeated attempts to prevent these dogs fo m coming into your yard, possibly have a cop come and see the damage firsthand. Do everything in your power to make sure the law is on your side should you have to shoot these beasts.

Get two rottweilers.

Speaking off. Can rottweilers beat up pitbulls?

Similar to this, but you'll need cooperation from your neighbor. This is an old trick that works most of the time for digging dogs.

Dig a trench right along the fence on the side where the dogs are (so your neighbors side). It should be about 6 to 8 inches deep. Next, you can use the fence posts, but I believe it is easier to use rebar. Drive the rebar into the ground at about the same spacing as the posts. Connect a length of galvanized wire to the rebar in one corner of the fence, right at the bottom of the trench. Then, stretch it tightly (as tight as you can) to the next rebar and wrap it around a few times, then stretch it to the next and do the same until you get to the last post, in the other corner. Make sure you have it tight and tied up well. Then go ahead and cover the trench back up and pack the soil down. It is best if you can dig the trench as narrow and possible. I've actually seen it done where the trench was basically just about as wide as the shovel blade was thick. The less disturbed soil, the better.

Now, when the dogs try to dig again, they get their paws and claws stuck in the wire and it aggravates the frick out of them. They eventually learn not to dig there.

Thank you. I've contacted the non-emergency line. I can file an aggressive animal report. I have taken some pictures, and I'll continue to. I've also started documenting the interactions thus far, and I'll continue to do so.
