Re: Council not doing dividing fence

I have a foundation degree in canine behaviour and training. I spent 3 years studying learning theory, training, behaviour and learning the trade both in theory and in practice; I have been tutored by some of the best behaviourists in the country, one of whom specialises in aggression in all forms a...

Re: Council not doing dividing fence

Andrew - I have not told you you are wrong - I agreed with what you said about dislike/fear of dogs: I am also fully aware of how other people feel - I know people with dog/breed phobias and have even helped one person get over it. I often have people ask me about a particular breed they are worried...

Re: Proposed new dangerous dog law

Of course a child that young is not going to know how to behave properly, but I didn't mention a 3yr old. The child in my example was 8 or 9, at that age he was more than capable of being taught and knowing how to behave sensibly (and I did also say it would actually be the parents' fault for not te...

Re: Council not doing dividing fence

Again assumptions - my dogs are not noisy and there is no smell, because I am very conscientious about keeping my garden clean and I don't allow barking. I am also fully aware of how other people feel - I know people with dog/breed phobias and have even helped one person get over it. I often have pe...

Re: Council not doing dividing fence

All the necessary information for an answer was in my first post (as evidenced by how 3 people actually answered it based on that first post). I could have just said 'is there a way to get the council to do the fence?' and nothing else but I felt giving more info than that would be helpful. Breed/ty...

Re: Council not doing dividing fence

I'm sure that the neighbours would be interested in somebody running a business dealing with behaviourally challenged dogs in a residential area. Why the unpleasantness here? I wanted to know if anything further could be done about this fence, and felt I needed to explain the situation to aid that ...

Re:

I know you won't want me to say this, but should you consider whether your dog IS dangerous? Would the dog have understood the difference between a rabbit and a small child? Or a baby? In short: yes. Dogs are not stupid, they can tell the difference between different species and a dog that kills a ...

Re: Proposed new dangerous dog law

When are people going to understand that banning breeds/types and muzzling all dogs WILL NOT WORK? Four breeds are already banned, and have been for 21 years; yet there are more pit bulls in the UK now than ever before. Banning anything bigger than a labrador equally will not work - the wrong people...

Re: Council not doing dividing fence

And no-one needs an unpleasant response, yet here one is! You're making assumptions too - my dogs do not jump at the fence, and they do not chew it - they ignore it. They certainly won't 'wreck' it - that's true of the current fence just as it was true of the previous fence which would fall down wit...

Council not doing dividing fence

I just want to see if there's any legal point here I might be able to use. My house is a private owned semi, but my neighbours on the detached side are council owned. The council have been doing the fences on their properties, front and back, but refused to do anything with our dividing fence, stati...

Re: Chickens and deeds

Any kept for meat (from what I've been told by experienced keepers) would likely be at slaughter age before any cockerels became apparent, and I've no idea how to censored chicks :wink: So that should be ok. Intrigued by the idea of that law though, I'll have a nosey into that, thanks.

Re: Growly dog

They might not realise it's being a nuisance - so much hassle can be avoided in these situations if the owners are informed. Last year I was looking after some husky/GSDs - my housemates were in but I was out working all weekend at one point, in the end the neighbour snapped at me and I'd no idea wh...

Re: Chickens and deeds

I get on well with the neighbours fortunately - one I know wouldn't mind, the other I will check with of course but as they are turning their entire garden into an alottment at the moment I'm not too worried! Also I would imagine their young girls would enjoy watching the chickens (the area I want t...

Re: Chickens and deeds

Well that's what I'm wondering! As far as I can see no-one - it was a council house originally but has been private-owned for over 21 years now (5 by my sister).

I just want to be sure :)
