    I agree with @Funnels. I'd probably go round there and say 'I was so horrified when I was looking out the window to see you spraying my dogs, especially since they weren't being particularly loud. It made me wonder if you're fed up with them or something, because I can't think of a single reason why their behaviour would have warranted that. Are there any issues with the dogs that I don't know about?'

    This doesn't make sense.

    It doesn't matter what the reason, there is no excuse for breaching a property boundary like that. And even if the dogs were annoying little yappers, surely spraying them would only rile them up further?

    OP I would probably wait until next time and then yell out "if you have a concern about the dogs let me know. But if you spray them again I will report you."

    I would be pretty unsettled by that.

    If that is what is happening when you are home, I'd worry about what the neighbour might do when you aren't home.

    Perhaps ask them if they have a genuine issue with your dogs & see what they have to say?

    Spraying water is a jerk thing to do.

    I wouldnt recommend this. Dont yell at her or imflame the situation as she mah turn nasty and throw bait or something.
    It woukdnt hurt to go around and have a calm chat about it because they may be loud or noisy when you arent there and she may have had enough. Not saying this is the case but couldnt hurt to find out.

    I would do this. It let's them know you are unhappy with their behaviour but are willing to listen to the reasons behind it.

    Haha! I'm not one for confrontation so I'd probably just quietly fume over what's happened and keep a careful eye on the situation. Some people are so sadistic when it comes to animals so I would want to make sure the neighbours behaviour doesn't escalate.
