Sounds like you did the best thing by calling the police. I would have done it the first time and I would surely do it again and videotape them coming in and video tape your no trespassing signs, too.

I have a sign for my gate that I still need to put up... it has a GSD silhouette on it and it says "Cross the line, your ass is mine"

I very rarely get anyone that attempts to come in our yard, not even the phone company after the last time when Narys chased them over the fence.

I'm glad you called the police. They are not exempt from "No Trespassing" signs.

After an incident with someone who had previously lived in a rental house that I was living in, I immediately called the local police, & told them I was on the way to the hardware store to get some "No Trespassing" signs that also said "Guard Dogs On Duty".
They said that it covers me in letting others know that the dogs are there to protect my property, & it gives me more legal right if someone enters my property & gets bit by one of the dogs.
I can tell you that it cut down the number of people entering my gated yard by about 95%.
I have the signs on the front & back gates.

When I was 2 or 3, the standard poodle we had (who never bothered anyone) was outside with ME in our fenced yard. The meter man came in like he always did. She ripped the seat right out of his pants! They are protective of their children, and can respond very differently if their kid is in the yard with them. She had never bothered the meter man before... and no one thought about me being out in the yard at the time. Just a heads up... because Balen is SO in love with your boy.
I have no doubt that Balen would bite someone when it comes to Kolton. The one and only time he has even gotten "nasty" with someone was over Kolton. Feedback on this behavior please.

I hope I dont either, but I've made up mind that I *will.*

Failure *is* success, if you learn from it.

Love the signs! I forgot about that thread. I've changed my mind, though. I don't think it was fear at all. I think he's seriously crazy about your boy, and sees him as 'his' boy based on other posts you've made. Your dog is totally devoted to him. I think if someone opened that gate with your son out there and for some reason you weren't right there, it would be the last gate they opened.

My entry gate is padlocked and I posted a custom made sign declaring that my property is maintained for the comfort & security of my canines and to keep out-recently added an electric wire to run the top of the perimeter fence and as my fence sit at least 15' from the black top I will be placing a electric wire on the outside. Also have signs posted to keep away from the fence and make a point of telling people I do so for the protection the dogs as I loved them and couldn't care less about them-know one comes upon my property without an invitation.

Unexpected doorbells can be terrifying if you have a loved one deployed in a war zone. In 2007 my son was in Iraq at the height of casualties, every time the doorbell rang I had a moment of sheer panic. One day I made a young man on his mission cry. Oddly enough I was very nice to him but explained in great length why his unexpected visit caused me distress and he started tearing up. I imagine that he'd already had a bad day.

I have locked gates but the meter reader always asks if the dogs are in. Havoc is very intimidating and it looks as though he could jump the fence. He can't though. He's not a jumper.
