Steady on at the back…
Yesterday we found a neighbours Rotweiler in our garden again. It gets out through a gap in their fence and wanders around the close playing with the cars and terrorising the rabbit (in my case).
Where do we stand legally on this? I’ve spoken to the owner twice now, very civilised but little action.
Over to STW for a suitable solution (Classifieds?).Posted 4 years agodabbleMember
We have a similar problem at our work. The guy over the back fence has decided our yard should be his dogs personal toilet so has made a hole in the fence to let it get through. We have repaired this hole several times but it keeps getting opened up again. I think i’ll email the council tomorrow. Especially peed off today as i trod in a lump of dog mess it had left. Damn dirty owner.Posted 4 years agozilog6128Subscriber

Seriously? What a bell-end! Surely getting a shovel and launching all the dog-eggs over the fence into his garden (preferably all over his washing) would sort the problem!Posted 4 years agobutcherMember
Yeah, yeah, yeah. But I shouldn’t really need to turn my place into a Rotweiler proof fortress because my dim neighbour can’t control their pooch should I. <sigh>
Fixing a hole in the fence is hardly comparable to building a fortress.
Who does all the work and who pays for it is something to be worked out between you and your neighbour. But that is the answer.Posted 4 years agojimbothejetsetMember
Dabble – how you have not taken action yet is amazing especially after several attempts to fox the hole. I’d be sending the dog shit back in a parcel with a note advising he fixes the fence or you’ll take your morning shit in his garden until the problem is rectified.Posted 4 years ago
@butcher. We are not in adjoining properties. They live in a different street completely. The bloody dog gets out, wanders around to our close and then zero’s in on my wife’s bunny…
I think the Warden plan is a goer. Aren’t people supposed to keep potentially dangerous dogs tied up or secured properly? This beast could carry a child off!Posted 4 years agoKarinofnineMember
Oh dear, the poor dog, it could get run over, eat poison/discarded bones/other, or be kidnapped (dognapped?). Rotties are lovely dogs – Daily Mail notwithstanding.
I understand your and your wife’s concern re the rabbit and your expectations of privacy/sole occupation in your garden. Involving the Council is certainly tempting.
However, a number of stray dogs are put to sleep – arguably no bad thing – but perhaps you could find a Rotweiler Owners’ Site/Club or something on the internet and have a word with them? They may (or may not) intercede on your (anonymous) behalf… or even dognap the dog themselves?Posted 4 years ago
