    Neighbors dog

    So my neighbors dog keeps getting out, scared me a bit once a few weeks ago, barking and growling very aggressively . Today my dad was over and the dog kept barking and growling at my dad from about 5ft. My dad had a stick ready. I walked out and the dog was doing the same thing again that it did a few weeks ago. Just is very aggressive to us. I really think It might attack.


    Not sure what I can and can't do. Prolly get some OC spray and a nasty "stick" and keep it in my garage. Is that all I can do or can I take more measures if need be ? I'll be damned if if gets close to my wife or newborn

    I will talk to the owner if I ever see them, but they are never there and just the kind of ppl who don't care( does not take care of house).
    I'll try animal control next time I see the dog, but I really don't wanna get in bad with the neighbors.

    All this takes place on my property.

    Any suggestions?

    Call Animal Control. Most places require dogs be either within a fenced yard, on a leash, or inside. The dog is TRESPASSING!!

    I had that problem once,with one of my neighbor's dog,in my yard.I made up my mind,if the dog even looked like he was going to bite anyone,i would shoot him.I decided to call the cops and suggested they may want to mention to the owner,"Leash Law".That said,i don't know about Texas laws,obviously.

    Start a paper trail now with LEO/Animal Control so that you are on record as complaining should anything happen. Why not try some "passive" repellent around your property? I think you can buy some scents that you place around your home to discourage wildlife. A few bucks of repellent could save a bunch of hassle.

    I have exactly zero patience with dogs around my kids. I'm a dog lover, but that doesn't mean I won't shoot one.

    you could try dog spray like the mailman carries, I use it when I'm out for a run, works great and doesn't have any permanent effects. I defenitely would let the local LEO and Animal Control know, like Superhouse said to start a paper trail. Where I live we don't have Animal Control and the Sheriffs department will only come out if the dog is vicious and needs to be shot, well I can do that if need be, would rather not, I'd start running out of places to bury them.

    leo / animal control....keep complaining. Also, speak to your neighbor, and explain what is happening. A little pepper spray will go a long way. And if does attack or gets more agressive , shoot it. I was forced to dispatch a neighbors very large and agressive lab several years ago. I had spoken to the neighbor, who was very apologetic, had called the cops and animal control, and told all of them I would shoot it if I had to. well, when it cornered me in my own small back yard and wouldnt let me by, i dropped it. I felt bad, but at the same time I did what was necessary. The neighbor was upset but knew her dog was a problem in the neighborhood, and myself and several others had warned that we would shoot it if we had too.

    A CCW is like a parachute; if you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

    The dog bit you and is still breathing? If my own dog bit me he would be taking a dirt nap. YMMV

    I barely ever see these neighbors, maybe once every two weeks. I work til the late evening . But will keep an eye out if I see one of them. The wife is kinda of a b****. And I met the husband when I moved in a few weeks ago.

    I'm a dog lover.

    I own two and one is a rescue.
    But I'll shoot one in a heartbeat if I had to.

    I've punted a dog's head with my boot as a kid before I was armed. He charged me as i walked by their house. He had treed me more than once before. After that it would run the other way when it saw me until I moved across town.

    I've also shot wild dogs on my property more than once.

    If the dog comes onto your property just give him a little shot of OC spray.

    It's not the dogs fault. That is ingrained behavior in dogs.

    They are "pack" creatures and are territorial by nature and they tend to want to protect the pack (their respective family/owners) & property.

    That is what the dog thinks that he/she is doing.

    But, you need to understand that they have no way of differentiating or knowing the difference between your property and their territory.

    A small shot of pepper spray will teach the dog where the boundary line is and will not permanently harm the dog.

    That is the exact same way that dogs learn to leave skunks and porcupines alone.

    jump through the legal hoops (animal control/leo's) and very important: document everything, that is, dates, time of day/night, witnesses, etc
    pictures & videos can be helpful as well

    Call leo, if it tries to attack you can leagally shoot a dog to protect life or limb.
    A small gun in your poket is better than a 45 in the truck.
