    Failing to control a dog is a criminal offence.

    Do you have any baby robins in your garden?

    You can probably get quite a few curries and kebabs out of a large Rotweiler 😈

    💡 Send a lion through the fence into their garden.

    Have a word with them. If they don’t play ball call the council dog pound (if they still exist) to come and get it.
    Maybe move the rabbit to a safer place? In the shed or whatever until this is sorted.

    +1 for council dog warden. Sod discussing it.

    Lights on = watching
    Windows down = touching
    Doors open = access all areas

    +1 dog warden. You can ask to remain anonymous, and the dog warden will take the heat, not you. May avoid a neighbourly fall out.

    Feed it picolax and then take it staight back saying ‘I just found your dog on the street eating a rotten chicken carcass’.

    Cue dog never being let out again to avoid ensuing fecal carnage?

    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?).

    Erm, secure YOUR garden so it can’t get in?

    Never let in again more like!

    Does seem the obvious solution.

    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>

    poison your rabbit then let it spend its dying hours as free (lunch) in your garden.

    you get shut of the dog, never have to clean out the hutch and blame the neighbour.

    Now that is a good idea. Can’t stand the bloody thing….

    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.

    Fix the hole. Job done. Not neighbours responsibility (unless fence belongs to them).

    Buy a sheep, then legally shoot the dog for worrying it.
    That or call the Animal warden, depending on your area and your council policy they may be able to fine the owner.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    I don’t get it – are you saying you want to shoot the dog using the sheep? Or is the sheep licensed to kill?

    @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!

    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?

    I did think of sticking it in the back of the car and driving 10 miles away but that would probably be theft (and a bit cruel).
