So, the people behind us have two huge dogs. One looks like a boxer, the other...probably pit. My dogs run out and to the back fence every chance they get. Barking their little heads off. That alone drives me NUTS! And their dogs do it right back, but sound like they're going to kill someone. Jumping at the fence, growling. We have one of those tall wood privacy fences. And their dogs (outdoor dogs) have managed to dig 3 HUGE holes on their side..coming into ours. I just looked out, and saw this big brown head coming from under my fence, UGH!! So, for the third time in months..I've had to pile pieces of flagstone (from a patio project dh is planning some time before 2014) into the holes. My yard is looking pretty ghetto these days, and I'm just about over it. Do they not see the holes, too??? I can look over, and see their yard is now THRASHED from these dogs.
Of course, my biggest concern is the safety of my dogs and my kids! I can just see one of our dogs sticking their head through there, and getting it bit off !! Or a kid (although I'd hope they'd know better) trying to pet the doggie that's coming under the fence. The previous owner's back there had a dog that did the SAME thing. When I mentioned it, the dog got chained to a dog house, in the middle of the back yard.
Then one day, he was just gone.
I've only spoken with these people a few times over the fence. They seem really nice.
But, how do I approach them about the fence? I hate confrontation. Do I write them a note? Knock on the door? What do I say? I can't keep plugging up holes. But, I'm not sure what can be done on their end, either.
