I don't even want strange dogs on my property,ever.If I see one,my and the Mossberg go running out.The neighbors don't care if their dog kills my chicken,I've gotten that attitude so much it's sickening.but they do care when I shoot their dogs and that got the message across.Even the dog warden and sheriff's office turn a blind eye to dogs running loose and there is a state law that all dogs be confined to your property.The last time I dealt with them,I said some not so nice words and said I won't bother them anymore and I would exercise my rights to protect my livestock.They tried to tell me I couldn't do it but I know better and told them so.I've shot 4 dogs without so much a wimper from anybody but they don't let their dogs run free anymore and if they get loose they round them up real quick.You have to make a stand with rude,irresponsible and stupid dog owners.Or your chickens will be gone.Good luck!!!

UPDATE: We got the back fence all done last week. We're securely fenced in on 3 sides now. Securing the front fence will probably have to wait for at least a few months. This neighbor is directly behind us, so her dogs now have to walk around the entire neighborhood to get to us. Still a possibility, but we haven't seen them at all since the fence was finished. Seems they're too lazy or dumb to make the trip. It was such a good feeling to see them walking the fence line the first day, looking all confused and failing to find a way through. The chickens have been safe and happy in the coop for the past week with no incidents. Hopefully it will stay that way! Thanks all for your tips.

I'm glad you got your yard fenced in, it must be really nice.

Too bad that the dog always bears the brunt of an irresponsible owner. They owner gets fined, or their dog gets shot/euthanized, then they get another dog. Stupid people need to held accountable just as criminals should be.

In my experiences,everybody-the irresponsible dog owners,the dog warden and the sheriff's office- try to put the blame on me because my chickens are loose on my property.It's never the dog owners fault that their dog is running loose.Since the authorities won't enforce the leash law, I exercise my right to protect my livestock.It was the last resort,it took 14 years to get to this point,but I do what I have to do.I warned the neighbors that I can and will shoot their dog and I got laughed at.I guess they thought I was just running my mouth and couldn't hit the broadside of a barn.They all got a lesson in Reality101.I don't like shooting dogs but I'm not going to sit back and watch the neighbor dogs tear up my flock,either.And they ALWAYS come back unless I shoot them.It doesn't happen anymore.
