If you want to really wind up your neighbour - tell him his dog has attacked and bitten one or two of the children, and he'll be hearing from the police and compensation-chasing solicitors in due course. Maybe ask him for details of his insurance whilst you're at it.jw40 wrote:As a childminder, I have to keep the children I look after safe so we currently only go into my garden when A) I am with them and B) I have checked that the dog is not outside. If the dog is outside we don't go out and if the dog is let outside while we are out there, we immediately come in. And I have a written policy stating this.
But I look after older children and I would like them to be able to go into the garden without having to come back in at a moment's notice.
It was our neighbour who said it was our responsibility to erect a fence on our side to stop his dog coming in, so he knows it is happening. I am just trying to ascertain whether it is in fact our responsibility to stop the dog coming in or his responsibility to stop the dog getting out, when it is our boundary.
Thanks for the mostly sensible comments posted!
You're lying of course, but just watch his face.....
