We don't have any fencing between we and...

Resolved • Response time 6 minutes

23 May 2022

We don't have any fencing between we and our neighbors. We can't install fence before next year. They dogs often poop in my yards. After multiple requests, not much luck. For few days, they stop leaving them unattended, then starts happening again. I tried dog repellent in my yard, but it's very expensive. If it rains, then I have to spread again.
Any alternative and effective options you can advise that would last long and would work during or after the rainy days as well?

Do you have an Home Owners Association?

Are there young kids in the immediate area?

Do you have warm weather all year round? ( no snow, freezing temps)

We do have HOA.
It's my neighbor next door.
Yes, there are kids in the community. Mine is young too.
I live in Atlanta (Georgia). Not much snow.

Thank you for that information.

I would first go to your HOA and request something be done. they may be able to fine the people for allowing the dogs off the property.

There are thing such as the scarecrow that shoots water and is motions activated , you can set that up and it won't hurt anyone. There is also motion detections alarms that will go off and scare the dogs away.

you might also want to try putting up a hot wire fence but do not connect it to anything. Get the poles that you push in the ground and put the wire in all the slots as that may prevent them from getting through

I think that any repellant you sprinkle down will get washed away or less effective if not reapplied.

But the problem with the sprinkler and noise repellent would be, when me and my kid would also go to our yard. Our yard is small. So it may sprinkle on us or make noise when we are walking around.

I guess it depends on how your yard is set up, if it is an area you can avoid for while until the dogs learn what happens when they cross, then you might be able to turn it off.

The only other thing you can do is continue to put down what you are using now or get the wire and push in rods an put that up and hopefully they will view it as a fence and not come over.
