Question about Acer Aspire 5002WLCi Notebook
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.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
