barking dogs

diddy.. yeah they work.. the dogs just run other way.. only way know battteries need changing is the dogs dotn run off...

hubb says the ones that can be fixedinto trees. etc can be run on both battery and electric.. and they have a larger range... we are getting one so that the dogs wont wanna come along the footpath outside ours.. and hopefully it will stop the dog mess..

what made us do it was we were laying concrete base for our new path.. we hd the front gate open to do this.. (the main front  bit is in a recess off the council footpath) and we had spent 3 hours mixing and laying this stuff and were doing final levelling.. when a bloody pitbull came running in trying ti get in the gate over me.. and of course ran on the wet concrete and then back out.. so the whole lot had paw prints.. my hubby went bolistic.. really did.. the owner said sorry and said it was our fault for not putting up signs.. so i asked if the dog could read.. she said dont be stupid... i said i am not.. you were too far away to have read the signs to stop the dog in the first place.. then she said well.. you.. you.. you should have fenced it off.. i said what the council public footpath.. or our own private path we were working on when your dog tried to jump in over me..

so told her signs state dogs to be on leads at all times on public footpaths.. she went off.. hubby shouting at her all the way "Put your bloody dog on the lead then" but she didnt.. and everyone dog owner who passed us after that passed  snide comment.. callin us evil and nasty and twats and our own fault for not having signs up and fencin to stop people..

well i really couldnt believe it.. we cant block of public footpath and when we had finished it we fenced it off across our path..were so fed up had two peoples dogs do it.. the first one didnt even say sorry.. andthe concrete that had already half set has been ruined.. as we couldnt do anything about it after the dog had ran on it..

dog owners round my way think they own the place.. they throw the balls infront of walkers and happily watch their dogs nearly take people out who dont know they coming up behind them at speed,they dont clean up the mess and they moan at eveyone else using the path.
