Cayenne in a solution...?

Coyote urine? https://www.homedepot.ca/en/home/p.real ... 54981.html

Are you sure it’s a dog and not something wild?
Id prefer not to rub that all over my deck if possible for staining, etc. Plus we do walk on the thing to get to the hot tub. Id rather put something in a container so the smell deters them.

Reading the reviews of that product, looks like it doesnt do much

As for a dog Im assuming it is. As a few neighbours will not keep their dogs either locked up and just let them roam and I see them in our yard.

One derserves to be shot, its chased my five year old niece on our own property, barks at us when we are in our yard, has chased me on my own property. Its rushed my son as well, and this is all on our own property,

We reported it, and afetr that they stopped talking to us, built a huge fence with a huge double gate on their driveway. They used it for two days, and then stopped. So now it just roams. Some people only think of themselves. They are selling and moving anyway.

????

So I plan on trying Cayenne pepper in a perforated container, how is that not doing anything.

As for assuming its the neighbours dog, I cant 100% say it is, as Ive never seen it do it. Its either at night or when we arent home. It could be a dog from a few miles away.

Should I just randomly just start shooting dogs as I see fit

Ultimately, that's your decision!
The fact that you provided several instances of the dogs chasing family members on your own private property, where it should be considered a safe haven; I would pursue a more permanent solution other than cayenne pepper.

Whats a good outside deterrant to stop neighbours digs from marking, We have a hot tub that constantly is getting marked on. We don't live in the city, so it could be anyones dog.

Is there a spray a person can use. I keep wiping off the areas but it seems to just get worse. Im sure other stuff in our yard is getting marked as well, but this I notice since it is on our deck and see it al the time

I'm having the same problem - I live on a corner lot and neighbours use it as a toilet. Grrr.

This is a totally different situation, as I dont have proof of whos dog it is. Or if it is a dog, although the height of the marking I doubt its a tom cat.

The other, I did have proof, and took care of it using the legal means necessary. In the winter its not as much of an occurrence, especially this winter since its been so cold and with tons of snow, so not a lot out of outside activity. I cant go shooting a dog running down a public road.

Your posts are confusing. You say this

Either deal with the problem or don't bitch about it!

How can I deal with it when it currently doesnt happen, since this dog isnt breaking rules of running down the road. Maybe it does come on our property.

If it comes down to chasing people again come spring time, measures will be taken

Sorry for the confusion, as it appears you are not taking it sereioulsy as I would.
How about setting surveillance and then showing the feeds to the neighbors to see if it's their dog?

Sure I could do that, and waste a bunch of money and time I dont want to. I asked for a solution to a certain problem, now you have brought it down to me not wanting to do anything and shooting random dogs

Do you live in a rural area? So at the first sign of dog trouble, you would shoot it, no questions asked. What kind of gun do you have? No questions asked, maybe the dog got out accidently, and they are looking for it where you live. Do you own livestock its threating on a regular basis. Shoot first, ask later?

It seems RFD isnt a place for help for a lot of people, but a place to shit on others that they dont know, all hiding behind their keyboard

Ive been a lurker on this site for awhile, and am always leary posting here, due to users like you. Ready to pounce on anything they can find. You didnt even come in here to help did you, you just came in here to do what you probably do in tons of other threads

So I say one deserves to be shot, means I should do it? Or it means I will do it?

You also answered zero of my questions either. Why is that, all talk, no action. Im thinking you are the type that look good on paper and talk a lot on here, but when it comes down to actual crunch time of having to deal with a situation, you would probably fold like a piece of paper.

Whats the word Im looking for, a troll. Does it make you feel superior to me now. Make you feel good?

Install it where, around acres and acres of land? Over my driveway where I would have to take it down everytime I leave my house? Unless I cover every spot, its pointless. And costly to due to the area, and I dont want to have an electric fence where I have to worry about humans being shocked by accident
