    Is there a possibility to fence your yard? I wouldn't want the liability of something happening to someone elses dog on my property.

      Other people's dogs have no business in someone else's yard! How would she be liable for someone's dog being there without her permission?

    If they don't wander up to be petted or fed, are not wearing collars, chances are that they are truly strays and not someone's pets that wandered off. Search the local listings for no kill shelters in your area and call them the next time Fido and Spot come to visit .

    Spray some pepper it won't harm them

  • Do they have collars and tags? If so, likely they belong to someone. So sad, as I do rescues of these type of animals all the time. Find a no kill shelter willing to come out the next time you see them. Worst case scenario, call the local Animal Control. Or see if anyone in the neighborhood is willing to take them to a local vet to see if chipped. Most vets provide this service for free. Always breaks my heart that poor defenseless animals are running around.

    In this day and age you know if this were to happen, that neighbor would never let her live it down. Maybe liable wasn't the right word to use. But they would still insist on it being her fault, if let's say, she had a hole in her backyard and the dog fell in it and broke 2 legs. That's the point I was trying to make.

    I don't like the idea of spraying anything on any animals. You can use pepper put on the perimeter of your yard. Also effective is moth balls or ground up Irish Spring bar soap. If that doesn't work then it's time to call your county animal rescue. If their owners are looking for them that's the first place they will probably call. Good luck.

    Get a garden hose and spray them when they come around or fence in your yard.

    What cruel people why would anyone want to frighten a poor innocent animal. You should all be ashamed of yourself . You should be ringing the relevant people to come and rescue them. In the uk we have a dog warden who will pick it up when you ring him and put the dog in the dog pound thats the first place the owners will ring and they have to pay to get them back in the pound unlike a rescue charity.
