there are lots of roaming dogs as you get a little further out in the rural areas and try being on a bike when one of these critters is chasing you. You're right...it isn't the dogs fault but careless owners who really have no regard for their animals if they are risking their lives by running into streets and potentially getting hit...just boggles my mind.

Our dog has been approached/attacked many times in Morehead Hill/Forest Hills in Durham. People are so daft when it comes to their dogs. They always say "Oh, he's/she's friendly" but what they don't realize (or care about) is my dog isn't and doesn't like to be approached when she's on a leash.

We have three dogs, of different types and sizes, and they are always on-leash if we are walking them, but if we are in the yard, the dogs are not on-leash. We know the neighborhood, our neighbors, and the dogs well-enough, however, to not be outdoors with ours at certain times of the day. Too much traffic -- cars, or kids on foot walking home from school, or other dog owners walking theirs.

I am in favor of dogs on-leashes when being walked, in public areas, etc., but even two dogs on leashes, with their owners, is no guarantee there won't be a problem of some sort. Ours are not aggressive but we have most certainly met some dogs, and their owners, who were most aggressive. I never take my 'boys' to a dog park for that reason.

Sometimes, you just have to wonder why some people choose to have pets (or children, for that matter). Most of us are responsible, I think, but it is always the inconsiderate, self-centered, or downright stupid, few who make it miserable for everyone else. Saddest thing is, they wouldn't even recognize themselves!

I have a big problem with my neighbor dog, the door is opened, the dog walk around freely and unleashed, come in fornt of my home and turn around and make it either way. They pretend did not see the present I just received, do not clean after several days. The association will send a letter. a lot of other neighbors unleash their dogs to bark at other neighbours. We do not want to antagonize anyone , but we are getting sick of this behavior. Shoud people have a respect for others. Shoud they worry about dog deposits at their door sterps forso many days. Sometimes visiting kids step of the gift. Deposits are left for long time behind the dumpster, God mercey. What should we do....

We have been here 5 months, and I have seen more unleashed dogs in this neighborhood than I had ever seen in 11 years in my prior neighborhood in Virginia. It seems like everyone has one or two dogs and many let them run outside a bit without a leash (while the owner is out there). Or they take their dogs on walks and have a leash but unleash the dog at some point. We've already had to call owners once because their dog came into our yard. And I see a posting on our listserv probably once every week or two about a dog that got away. It is crazy! I have never seen anything like it!

No problems here to speak of. There's a rental property next to me, and only occasionally one of the dogs will jump over the gate. All in all, we have responsible pet owners here in North Hills....including the many dog owners up at The Lassiter.

Get a motion activated sprinkler that sprays the dog any time it wanders onto your lawn.

We have a place at the beach in a very HOA controlled neighborhood, which I love!

Neighbor got notice that his Time Warner truck shouldn't be parked in front of his house and maybe not even on his driveway. He freaks out. Yes, that is written in the HOA docs that he agreed to at closing. So, he is arguing with the HOA. HOA sends us letter asking how we feel about his truck. We say it is ok with us.

However, neighbor knows we aren't at the beach house full time so when we do show up, his truck is not only parked in front of our house but it is ON OUR GRASS!

So, I politely knock on his door and ask him to move his truck. He moves it off the grass but still in front of my house.

I also notice he allows his dog out without a leash (HUGE DOG) and it poops on my yard. Since we aren't there full time, there were HUGE PILES of poop.

So now, I'm thinking this guy is just an IDIOT because he doesn't realize that the neighbors who are on his side (about his truck being parked in HIS DRIVEWAY) are now being annoyed because he is parking his truck in front of our homes and on our grass. Neighbors want to call the HOA but I convince them to talk to him FIRST.

Of course, he becomes OBNOXIOUS when neighbors confront him about truck and dog. Says it is the fault of the HOA for being so strict.

Grrrrrr.

Some people are just downright inconsiderate and I think if people allow their dogs to do this, it isn't the fault of the dog.

You can always scoop it up and toss it back where it belongs. Who's to say if it hits the grass.... ;p

We had this problem in our neighborhood a couple of months ago. Someone took mug shots of the offending pooches and posted them on the community website. It was hilarious - and solved the problem.

My neighbor's dog sometimes gets into our yard but we don't complain because sometimes our kids get into his yard and HE doesn't complain
