Wow, you sound like a big part of the problem.

The neighbor has a right to NOT have YOUR dog running into THEIR yard. How about you take responsibility for your mutt, that would probably help a lot.

If this kid was already threatening other people at six years ago, he really has psychological problems. Who knows what his home life is like? Or perhaps he's schizophrenic or something.

I just hope we don't have a serial killer among us terrorizing the state once he returns from the mid-east.

Well, as stated, I KNOW his parents, and they aren't drunks or druggies or anything.

Doesn't sound like schizophrenia. If he was hearing voices and out of touch with reality, someone would have noticed that by now. It's a small town. Besides, kids aren't usually schizophrenic--that's a disease that manifests itself in late teens or early 20's.

Personally, I think that at a very young age, he came to know that saying things like that got him attention that he wasn't getting otherwise. To some kids, negative attention is better than none at all. How much that need for attention has continued to grow within him is the problem. Hopefully the military will be good for him, but then again--sending people out with guns to kill other people who aren't that much different isn't all that great on the psyche, is it.

Yeah, it is rare for young kids to be schizophrenic. Could children be misdiagnosed? ADHD?

Even though I own dogs doesn't mean I think everyone likes them or that they should be allowed everywhere. Personally, I always leash my dogs and never take them where dogs are not allowed. I make no attempt to even approach other people when walking my dogs unless they seem to want to pet my dogs.

I just don't think everyone, including the neighbors, should be bashing the OP so much since they are making an effort to retrain the dog. It'd be totally different if the OP's attitude was "My dog can do whatever it wants, ********* guys.", but it's not.
Making an effort does not involve letting them out loose. It involves restraining at this point. Retraining involves more than just saying you are, it involves doing something. Continuing to let a dog out to just run over to the neighbors, and then calling them back is not gonna cut it. This dog needs to be leashed when out, and kept w/in his yard period. He will still run into neighbors yard anytime he is loose. Fence, or leash.....only options

There is a reason the majority of people don't feel the way you do.
Just start a new thread already! or stick to the topic

After reading the first 4 pages of this post it looked like it turned into a dog on a leesh issue. Wasn't there a little more to this story the JUST THE DOG? Like the new neighbor using someone else's lawn equiptment and NOT returning it? Sounded to me like the new people were A**es from the beginning. Hold on here it is....



I Love Christmas but they just moved in and they are playing loud music? Someone disconnected the device and the husband went door to door to ask if they did it. Even bothered an 85 year old man at 9:45 at night. Then to the awesome neighbor who I have become close to not only did he borrow the blower he has asked three times to help him move something inside the house. The wife he tells me hides in the other room and has never even introduced herself. I had the absolute displeasure of meeting her. I have never met a more aggressive ***** in my life.


So why did this become ALL about the dog?
