Her dogs don’t sound well behaved at all. Lunging at your girlfriend? Should probably be put down

re: Neighbor's Pitbull destroying my fence and attempting to get into my yard: Update pg 7
I was in this exact situation not too long ago. Neighbors have two pits. They seem to be good dogs when they are around the owners. They always listen and my neighbors appear to be good people.

They leave them out during the day and the dogs would jump on the fence anytime me or my wife were around it. Not that big of a deal, but kind of annoying. I brought it up to them once and they tried the cayenne thing for a while, which seemed to work.

After a few weeks they were doing it again. Finally, when I was out of town my wife calls and told me they broke a board, and now the pit's head was sticking through.

After calming down I called the guy up and told him what happened and explained that they are damaging MY fence and intruding on my property. I told him to come up with a permanent solution or I would. They next day my fence was repaired and they had installed their own small fence a few feet away from mine to keep the dogs away. It's been pleasant ever since.

Just go explain they are tearing up your property and if they get through you will protect your family. Don't let it go or one day it will be a bad situation.

re: Neighbor's Pitbull destroying my fence and attempting to get into my yard: Update pg 7
No matter what, unless the dogs are eradicated by you, the owner or the authorities, there will likely always be the risk of them getting through and killing your pups. Anything that can go wrong...well, you know the rest.

What to do?

Instead of building a fortified fence, I'd go buy a high quality, high powered electric fence and install it along the bottom. It's easy to do on an existing fence too. Do not skimp on the grounding rods.

The first time the murderers hit the fence, if installed correctly and strong enough, they'll never go near it again. They won't even think about it.

My dogs are in an underground e-fence and they wouldn't dare cross the line. Alot of that has to do with them being trained on it correctly, but it also has to do with dog psychology: My male dogs will run for 5 miles through blinding golf ball size hail so they can get to a hot piece of arse, but they wouldn't DARE run the 6 feet barrier where they'll get lit up to begin that journey. The difference is they know that they'll hurt themselves- if even for a few seconds- if they run that fence barrier, but they've no idea they'll KILL themselves doing the former.

Those pits can be foaming at the mouth, but if they've ever once been popped trying it, then they won't even THINK about it doing it again. A dog will never knowingly sacrifice himself harm or inconvenience, no matter how much we like to think Fluffy is a human.

Again, if they're not eradicated then either put a cattle-grade e fence in, or eventually become a statistic to Murphy's law: it'll eventually happen, and when it does your pups ain't gonna come out in too good of shape.

I really hope that my situation ends similarly to yours. However, I'm not holding out much hope.

Thank you for the advice. How do you think a dachshund would do against that e-fence? I'm not trying to hurt mine.

And my dogs don't go near the fence, but it's a possibility they might eventually.

Tell your neighbor directly that if the dog comes onto your property you will kill it, no questions asked.

We've had the "Fido Shock" fence. Worked pretty well, but our catahoulas would bust through 2-3 times a year. (Ocassionally, they would literally bust the wire.) I would not trust my family or dogs lives to an electric fence- even a higher powered cattle wire.
And there is no way you or your dogs wont get zapped at some time.

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.


I know, right? Pics of your puppies?

Watson (7) on the left, Oscar (3) on the right.

Watson is the best dog I've ever had. Oscar likes to eat.

I know you're trying to keep it civil now, but any reason you haven't tried getting a cop out there to see first-hand?I mean, assuming one would come out for that sort of thing. Talk to the neighbors again, but this seems like it would be way better than your own standard documentation.

APD does not send out officers for animal issues.

This is what should happen, but he can't always be there on guard. In my situation I had to make sure my wife, kid, and dogs were safe if I'm not there to kill an attacking dog in my yard. The situation should be remedied BEFORE the pit has an opportunity to come on the property.

Man this is such a shitty situation, I really feel for you

Sounds like you’re doing everything the right way, though.

I’m hoping for the best for y’all.

If they didn't fix the situation my next move was to call the cops because of the damaged fence. They will come out for that. Once you do that it should make them understand... hopefully.

If they are just trying to come through in one spot, dig a 4" trench under the fence, about 1 foot deep. Put some hog wire in the trench. Nail it to the fence. now fill the trench with Quickrete. The hog wire will keep them from coming through the fence. The Quickrete will keep them from coming under.
