Our street is only about 10 houses. Maybe less than that. Anyway a new house was built recently and the folks have moved in within the last couple of weeks. Evidently they have 2 Akitas that they do not keep fenced in. The Akita attacked the next-door neighbor's goat, badly injured it and the dog owners did not even contact the neighbor to see if the goat was okay or offer to pay for his medical services. (Neighborhood gossip is that the dog owners saw the dogs and pulled them off the goat.) I live about 4 houses up the road from them, I'm scared to death those things will come kill my chickens as they free range (even though it is within a fenced area) or kill one of my alpacas. Does anyone have experience with those sort of dogs? I'm thinking of having DH run more electric along in between the board of the fence. (Its a 4 board horse fence, that was there when we bought the place, so something could stick its head in or climb in.) We already have electric on the bottom to prevent stuff crawling in.
