We did try to get them to meet one day. She just stood there and she did get a good smell of him, but as soon as he turned towards her her hackles went up. At that point I just backed her up and got her to sit for awhile well I talked to the neighbours. Then we tried let them smell again, but the dog licked her face and she didn't enjoy that at all. I put her back in a sit stay and after another 5mins or so we just both went our own ways.
She has seen him on walks and will completely ignore him.
Treats forget about them, zero interest. Backyard only fun time, tired it, doesn't work. Once she gets focused that is it, nothing will get her attention. As soon as we her get in that "mood" we try to correct. Even tried tiring her out by taking her for a walk/run in the woods and then taking her in the backyard to pee before going in the house. Thinking her mind was drained, but nope right to the fence.
Our neighbours actually tried putting up another fence (a sort of snow like fence, one that keeps the snow from drifting) about 5 feet inside their chain link and their dog ran right though it.
I guess we will just keep taking her immediately in the house into her crate each time and see how that works over the long run. Hopefully we will be moving out to the country soon and we won't have to deal with neighbours this close anymore.
I have to say as well that this is the only dog on the street she is like this with. The neighbours on the other side don't even get a second glace when they are outside. Mind you they don't have a dog, but she will still bark at the other neighbours whenever even if they don't have their dog outside with them.
