Question about Acer Aspire 5002WLCi Notebook

1 Answer

Neighbors dogs digging under fence and sliding under gate.

My property had a split rail fence on 3 sides. One side was barbed wire. When I purchased the property I added rolls of 2-1/2" square opening wire. I nailed it to the split rail fencing and it strengthened the split rail fencing and contained my dogs just fine. The neighbors two large dogs are aggressive and are determined to break into my yard. They run free and are allowed to run back and forth across the road. They come onto my property whenever I am not outside. They steal my dogs toys and soil in the yard and on our belongings. If my dogs go out to defend their property the neighbors dogs will fight. My dogs are not fighters. One is very old and one is a puppy. My third dog competes in sport competition and I do not want them to fight.

My neighbors dogs can slide under my wrought iron gate which has about an 8" gap under one side of it. My dogs cannot stay out in their yard and play due to these obnoxious dogs. When I am out working in my yard I have to leave my dogs in the house.

I have tried mesh wire cloth attached under the gate. The dog just pushes it back as he comes under the gate. I have been attaching tent stakes to the bottom of the wire fencing but they are expensive and I cannot put them along the entire fence line. The dogs are just too persistent and determined. I am located outside the city limits and I have been thinking of using coils of barbed wire attached to the bottom of the fencing and the gate with those little plastic ties. Do you think that would work? or do you have a better suggestion?

Have you tried talking with the neighbors?
You could get a local welder to tack something to the bottom of that gate so it won't have room for them to crawl under, if that will not impede its swing. Should be quick and simple, for the right person.
There is a product sold at pet stores that prevents dogs from licking their wounds and so forth, that could be sprayed in areas where they dig or intrude into your property. It is apparantly offensive to dogs. The one we use has rosemary in it. (Maybe you could get a big bag of rosemary and boil it and spray it with a pump sprayer along your property line.)
It's a little unorthodox, but when I used to live in the country, I would mark my territory by going out in the evening and peeing around the edges of the yard, on protruding bushes and so forth. We had no fences at all. And while this may seem like stooping to their level, it sends an unmistakable message to the other dogs that your yard is not their territory. They may still argue the point, but if you are consistent they will get the message.
Seems like the barbed wire might be a cause of future conflict, in the event that someone or some pet were injured.
You might also google "dog territory" and read a bit. You have to communicate to them to get them to stop. There's a story about a guy whose feet were tender from walking on the hot sand and sharp rocks, and had an idea to cover the whole earth with leather.
Good luck.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

    try small claims court, and animal control. My neighbors are the same way - could care less about rules, laws and common decency.

How would I support a heavy wooden gate over uneven terrain?

You need to go back to the hinges. The is a house near me that has a gated drive that rises sharply from the road. Needless to say a normal hinge system would only allow the gate an opening of a few inches. The hinges on the gate allow all the movement required, it is your problem in reverse, but the answer is the same. That is where you need to get your ironmonger to look.

The signal needs to wrap around itself to cancel itself just like the twisted pair that comes from the control box. Either that or move the line. The signal comes off the wire in a 4ft barrel. Also avoid sharp bends around corners, they fire a larger signal tward the center.

I need some kind of fence with at least 1 gate. I have vinyl fencing on both sides in the back yard, but it's only privacy fencing to separate the yards. I have 2 small dogs and I can't let them out i

You could probably continue the vinyl fencing but that will cost a lot. You could always use a chain link fence which is really cheap and easy to install but it won't look right.

Poor Earth Grounding
One of the biggest problems with electric gates is poor installation. In particular, many people do not properly ground the gate or fence during installation. Grounding rods must be placed under the gate in order to keep it safe for people and animals. Drier climates require more grounding rods. An improperly ground gate can cost thousands of dollars to repair.
Barbed Wire Fencing
Some farmers have tried to electrify a barbed wire fence, but this is a major safety hazard to animals. Animals can get stuck in barbs whether or not they are electrified, but the added electricity can lead to their death. Barbed wire should be avoided on farms and should never be electrified.
Occasionally, electric gates may experience technical difficulties due to interference. Local radio, television, or telephone signals or wires can cause the interference for both the media system and the gating system. Such interference can cause the gate to lose its electric charge temporarily. The interference can also cause brief spikes in electricity in the gate, which can be a safety hazard to people or animals.
Insufficient Animal Training
Since electric gates on farms are intended to keep animals in their assigned area, the animals must learn about the consequences of crossing the electric gate. Farmers or property owners must therefore train their animals to avoid the gates. To train the animals, owners must actually expose them to the electric shock. Owners who fail to shock-train their animals may find that their animals become obstinate or may get seriously injured.
Crime Target
Owners who install electric gates at the edge of their property often do so for security. Ironically, the presence of such high-tech gates may signal to would-be robbers that the owners are very rich, making the owners theft targets. Property owners may want to install an alarm system to accompany the electric gate to increase security.

Neighbor put up fence barbed wire 1 foot tall

Property fencing laws are handled by the your local council. The council has laws governing the heights and material type to be errected.
I would suggest you contact your local council for advise and course of action.
