|Thank you, Mika & Kai, as it is so difficult!! The neighbors, I've noticed, have resorted to putting shock collars on the 3 adult dogs. It keeps them from our side of the fence now, and I guess from getting away for the most part, but they leave them home alone all day long. So the dogs will always run out and bark and bark and bark when they hear anything.
They are purebred pitbulls. I've spoken to our neighbors a few times about them. They insist they are friendly, but it's the fact they leave them alone barking all day long and we can't enjoy the outdoors! Even if they are friendly, they still need attention and interraction. What's worse it that they are breeding them. Over and over again.
The pits may not be considered by the dog fancy of the world as a "guard breed", but they sure do like to guard their own yard and bark at any little sound they hear. That, to me, is guard-like behavior.
At this point, I think I will resort to a pitbull rescue for more information and contacting the city itself.
