Dh actually pointed out they have a dog as well and the little boy is unsupervised with it whenever he is outside so again like you said, if he was in trouble i doubt the parents would hear.
    Sorry I wasn't implying you were yelling AT the child, just yelling out to him. God when I lived in suburbia u heard everything, it was so annoying.

    All good, was just clarifying my post yes, its very much like that here as well but i know when our place is close up (like if we have the air con on for example), we hear nothing outside which has me wondering if thats the case here and why the parents aren't noticing what the kid is doing or us yelling out. That or they could just be ignoring it

    I feel sorry for the little boy. He sounds lonely.

    one of my dogs is on the same, and DH is currently building her a large kennel at one end of the run. She jumps 10 foot fences and escapes, although at our current house whilst it is fenced, the previous owners cut some of the fence to make the driveway wider, so the gate can't close. She's houdini anyway so a run is the only way we can keep her from running away. occasionally she wears through the d shackle that is holding her leash onto the wire, so we just replace it. It takes her several months to wear a hole in the lead though, and it's just from her running back and forth up the run. Our other dog has free reign of our 14acre property though, because his legs are too little for him to want to run all the way out onto the road lol.
