    Am I missing something? While I would never spray a neighbours dog with water I dont understand why its so serious either. Why is it abuse? It doesnt hurt them? Is it because they get confused or it interferes with their training or something?

    I agree I would politely go and ask why they did it. I suspect your dogs may be louder than you realise from other stories I have heard about neighbouring dogs

    It can install a fear in dogs and cause aggressive behaviours if they don't know where it's coming from. Eg...the neighbour sprays the puppies but they don't see thrm. All they see is a child walking past. Puppy thinks when there is a child they will get sprayed with water. Puppy develops a fear of children which leads to fear aggression as time goes on. Spraying with water is a terrible training tool. Not all dogs are affected in this way but it's impossible to know which ones will and which ones won't.

    Not to mention the fact that it's just plain rude. Sure, maybe it's harmless (possibly not depending on the dog) but I still wouldn't appreciate someone spraying my dogs with water.
    I understand the dogs may be more noisy than OP realised but she also said they weren't being particularly noisy at that point (if I remember correctly), so there really is no reason for the neighbour to behave like that.
    I also like the idea of approaching her to let her know the behaviour was not ok while asking for the reason behind it.

    Bit OT but your comment reminded me.... Someone I know had a dog regularly poop on the street and the owner never picked it up. One day my friend was out watering the garden when owner + dog walked past, and dog did a poo on the nature strip. My friend turned the house on the dog, of course the owner started carrying on so my friend turned the house on him! End of pooping problem lol

    Eta I don't condone what the neighbour did in this case though, that was just mean and out of order, and I would approach them to say I noticed it and was wondering what the reason was. Op you may find that the dogs have been barking while you were out but that's still no excuse to spray them.

    Thanks everyone for your comments.

    I'm not sure what my neighbour was thinking but we won't be near them for much longer. We're moving town so we won't have to worry about it for long.

    I'm at home atm waiting to start my new job. I've been keeping an eye on my puppy and he's pretty quiet during the day. My neighbour is not home between 8am and 6pm weekdays so I don't imagine he was getting so annoyed because he's put up with it all week.

    Dh has been putting them in a smaller yard away from that neighbour if he is barking. The neighbour is doing some work in his back corner near our fence. He's making a lot of noise and it's very close to our yard and our puppy does. It like it. I don't want to risk having him have another go at him.

    I still don't think it's great that he thought it was okay that he could lean into our yard and discipline our dog.

    Thanks for clearing that up - I understand now.

    OP it sounds like a good outcome that you are moving away from them
