The house diagonally behind us (so we do not share a fence line) has 2 dogs. Call this house A. The wife has recently gone back to work after maternity leave so the dogs are pretty bored.
Just this week they have been getting in to house B's yard (next to us) and then they proceed under the fence to our house. (Neither House B or I have dogs so we don't have dog proof fences). I have found dog poop in our yard and dog bones with meat still on them.
I have a 2 year old who loves to play in our backyard and I would prefer not to have to look out for the dogs when playing in our own backyard and also not dodge dog poop and bones. I am also concerned the dogs will get out the front of my place and get hit by a car.
I approached House B about it (directly next to us) as we know them quite well and thought they should know before I go to the owners. House B knows as the retaining wall at the back of their place (connecting to House A) is falling apart and they don't have the money to fix. So the dogs are climbing the crumbling wall to get out.
House B is worried it is their fault and they are going to have to borrow money to fix the wall. I think House A should do something as it is their dogs. I am going to approach them (nicely of course) tonight.
What do other people think?
