    Default (Maybe petty) Neighbour vent

    I was just watching my two puppies playing in my backyard - they were chasing a bird away and I saw my neighbour lean over our fence and spray them with water.

    I'm really not impressed with that. They don't make much noise at all and they rarely bark. I understand they may not be dog people but I don't think what he did was right

    Did yell at her that you were watching the dogs to make sure they didn't catch the bird. To leave your dog's alone

    I was inside in our living room so I could not yell out.

    The bird was up in the pine tree (which is about 30mtr high) and my puppies are tiny little things so I could not imagine they were worried about the bird.

    I would be so mad! That is abuse and in no way appropriate. My dog loves to chase birds and has never caught one so I don't see the harm.

    Our neighbour loves to tell me what to do with our dog. She recommends weird training technics and used to give the dog treats without me knowing.

    We had to have a pretty serious chat to her about it. Just explained that our dog (admittedly a bit special) needs to just follow one set of rules set by us and that no training or treats should come from anywhere else.

    The neighbour was a bit upset but got over it.

    I would go over and politely tell them that you don't want them spraying your dogs over the fence in future.

    Sorry but are you sure they don't make much noise, especially when you're not home? Unless she's a complete nut job she is perhaps fed up with your dogs. Of course she shouldve spoken to you about it properly without resorting to spraying them, but maybe go and ask her if they are bothering her.

    Even if she is fed up with them, spraying someone else's dog with water is just wrong. If this is the case the neighbour should grow up and talk to the dog owner.

    That's why I included the last sentence in my post.

    I'd talk to them about it but also tell them you have cameras in your yard. It put our old neighbours off messing with the dogs
