These dogs aren't trying to get through the fence, by digging or tearing at it. They are just protecting their property and taking advantage of the large openings in the existing welded wire fence. By adding another layer to what's there I think I can reduce the chances of them being able to stick snouts through to get bit by the dog on the other side.
Thanks for everyone's help. I'm going to buy another layer of fence and leave a note on the neighbors gate letting them know what I'm doing and why without pointing a finger of blame at anyone.
I appreciate everyones insight.

|huntergreen||privacy fence is the way to go but op asked about what could be added to existing fence. if put up right, it won't be torn down by the dogs.|

I would be putting up a privacy fence (6ft personally) asap and not mentioning a word of it to the neighbors unless they asked while I was out working. Then it would be "Well your dog has drawn blood on mine ____ times that I've witnessed and I don't feel comfortable having my dogs in view or reach of yours."

This may seem like overkill but to prevent current and future problems worth it.
Full 8 ft privacy fence, completely block view and any chance of access. Keep in mind as well that digging may occur so use buried fencing or some other material to block digging underneath the fence.

I feel your pain, I really do as Ive been in a similar situation for over a year now. Thankfully no blood but several near misses and lots of frustration
Double wrapped chicken wire is cheap and effective or go with simple chain link with the privacy slats inserted. Best case scenario I would go straight to a 6' wood privacy fence to ensure the dogs aren't able to touch in any way shape or form either digging, through the fence, or over it. It's about keeping YOUR dogs safe regardless.

To the OP: I'd go with chicken wire. Cheap, easy and you can double wrap it if needed. Whether you say something is up to you. If I were your neighbor I would probably get the hint when seeing the extra fencing go up, so there might not be a need to bring it up if you don't want to stress the situation more.
