Alice13 I have to keep reminding myself that u guys in the us, canada, uk n all such countries are very particular about barking dogs. Here almost every dog barks at you if you are walking anywhere near their owner's property. It has become so normal that people here prefer it as they feel it would warn intruders against coming anywhere near their house. I have a neighbour whose dog barks all the time except when it is asleep and trust me I couldn't care less n I think it is the same for all the neighbours as no one bothered to report it so far. It is not that we do not train them. They r trained just not socialised properly. We don't have dog parks or pools like u guys. In fact, we can bring our dogs almost no where. It is really sad but we have to be sensitive towards the feelings of the Muslims here who are not allowed to come into contact with any dogs as they r the majority.

volcano I bring my girl everywhere and only run across a couple people scared of her. Nobody has said anything bad at all. One lady working at home depot said OMG!!! a dog!, and a lady walking by our house got scared when apache ran up on her. It doesnt take a genius to tell shes a very happy go lucky dog, btw shes dark sable...

Get into some classes and train your dog to be the BEST that you can train her to be. Learn basic obedience, then off lead, then graduate to tracking, or herding or any kind of useful utility work.

The very best revenge you can possibly get is to have the very best trained and well behaved dog that you can possibly have. When you do that----people will notice, and believe me they will figure out in a split second who is right and who is wrong.

And you and Zola will both have fun doing it together.

Not only that, you could have the ugliest dog that ever walked on three legs-------------but if she is well trained and well behaved, you will have people coming up to you in the street telling you how beautiful she is and wanting to tell you all kinds of stories about a GSD that they had as kid and still miss 40 years later, etc. etc.
Excellent idea But it wouldnt change this guys view on GSDs,even if we learnt her to wash and wax his car every week,he hates them and always will.

Nigel I agree with the train your dog comments, should your neighbors file a complaint against you, nothing like having a well behaved dog for your defense. Might think about cameras as well, with audio if possible, not just to catch your neighbor doing something stupid, but to show your dog is not out there barking when they claim he is.

petite I would be cautious about your neighbor potentially trying something along the lines of tossing poisoned meat into your garden or trying to leave your fencing open on purpose. You's be surprised how many autopsies of dogs who suffered sudden death are poison related.

CharlieB.Barkin Calling the cops was the right thing to do imo. My neighbours on each side dislike and are actually afraid of my gsd. One neighbour called the cops because he had our dogs off leash but that didn't change anything.

I have always found it strange when people dislike dogs in general. I've only met one person who wasn't a neighbour, that didn't like dogs and it made me fell weird. To each their own. He's still a cool person.

huntergreen if some one came to my house and threatened my do, i would have had him inside in short order and "explained" how i felt about threats. might want to leave this to your hubby.

njk It does seem like these two mates have a bit of a thing against your dog, especially if they're making up lies to make you look bad (like your dog being in the yard barking when it isn't). But I agree with the poster who said perhaps try and work on addressing the barking. We're fortunate that our girl isn't a barker but when she does bark (always when we've shut the backdoor and left her behind outside) it is loud and booming and makes me jump. I worry instantly about the neighbours when I hear it, and we're talking a once-a-day bark if that. Perhaps even talk to your other neighbours and see what they have to say?

If someone threatened me with that, my reply would be "If something happens to my dog, never ever go to sleep". Then I would light some torches in the backyard that night.

Chip18 Hmm interesting? Other than the window thing (barking at people and this "guy" in particular) your guy does not sound unreasonable??

His dog goes "everywhere " off leash? If thats the case I "assume" his dog has no issues?
