There is no need to defend yourself. I am appalled by some of the comments on here and comments made from people who own dogs and supposedly love dogs?? NO dog deserves to be poisoned under any circumstance. A dog will bark to protect its property. Sometimes there is a place and time for rude comments, this thread is neither that time or place.

This is the saddest thing I have seen on here. This coming from someone who likes dogs, owns dogs? Maybe its the owners that are pieces of crap. A dog doesn't know any better unless the owner teaches it.

too many other options for the neighbors to choose from. from the simple knocking on the door and let her know there is a problem to calling the police and ac. i would never condone poisoning anothers pet for any reason.

Thank you, that was not a response that I was expecting from another member, saying a dog deserves to be poisoned.

There are proper ways in dealing with nuisance dogs. It doesn't sound like the OPs dogs are barking incessantly. Taking such drastic actions could and should put the perp in jail/prison.

O.K. sometimes posts in written word can seem a little forethright w/o the tone a voice/emotion can lend to how advice might sound. And perhaps taking a matter of fact approach such as this to "knock some sense" into the OP, as a dog lover and not wanting to hear about some tragedy because of...but come on...a little more care and compassion.

There is nothing regarding hours of harrassment to the Blanketbacks neighbours...and charging a fence to give a little what for when the neighbours are out does not constitute grounds for such anger as to poison a dog. Everybody has a threshold and w/o calling AC or writing a letter to the offensive party, talking to etc. and w/o a back story...then Your posts are biased, it is based on assumption re: your personal exp. as to why the OP has control.

Much like any criminal act against human or animal, this is not an act of how to deal with nuisance behaviour. This is cruelty, CONTROL...This the act of physcopathic behaviour and these type people have no remorse for their actions. The dogs could be saints and not make a peep, and this could still happen....there are plenty of stories in the news of unprovoked assaults on animals.

SO to the issue at hand. Setting up a camera, may help catch the person responsible, but will not prevent and/or protect...You can post surveillance signs as a deterent, but a baliklava solves that problem...

I think motion detected flood lights may be more in order...people are less likely to mess around when there's a spot light on them, also would alert you. Just a thought.

Hope your doggie is well.
Side Note: In case of potential poisoning...have activated charcoal on hand. L/U dosing...but right after enducing vomiting, this will get into the gut and absborb toxins before entering the blood stream...Also, having slippery elm on hand in case of burns to internals pathways, to help heal and sooth

I guess it's human nature to personalize everything? If I say my neighbor didn't like GSDs, it's a given that my dog was free to constantly bark at them, if that's an issue someone has with their neighbors? Huh. My current neighbor doesn't like GSDs either, because he was bitten by one. My former neighbors didn't like them because they had relocated from a part of the world where the breed isn't kept as a pet. Nothing to do with constant barking - because that annoys the crap out of me - it's noise pollution, not good for the dogs, and removes the benefit of alerting me to potential trouble.

Death by poisoning is very slow and extremely painful. You want to avoid this at any cost. Who is right and who is wrong will not help the dogs at the end of the day.

Take action and protect the dogs first rather than argue who is wrong and who is right. That would be my first action, next action would be to identify if it was indeed poisoned bacon and identify who put it there, then there would be consequences. Take care of the dogs first.

Have you actually spoken to your neighbors? Have they complained about your dogs in the past?
