    (this is why I am ticked) My neighbors dog got out of his electric fence and is very chicken aggresive and came running over and the girls were out with me freeranging he chased them all over and got one by the tail! :mad: Then his owner came running to get him while I was on the other side of a fence retreaving a run away chicken but I jumped it and went after him. He would have killed the bird but...... (this is what impressed me) My dog tackled him (he is a 150lb yellow lab she is a 40 pound basset hound) She bit his butt and he dropped the chicken and came and got it. The hens will only have free range when I am with them now and I will do some work outside for about 2 hrs in the afternoon now. Huck (crazy lab) will get curb stomped if he gets one of my chickens. they are fine in the suburban enviroment (he is the one who crosses the line into my yard to chase them) I am happy they are all safe and that my dog did a good job but worried that I will not be so lucky next time.

    Thanks for listenign to this semivent story thing I told the owner it was not her fault for having a retarded dog. I will get mad if this happen again but I will be out there and the dog will get a freakin run for his $ and his life ! Huch will soon be getting a crash course in around chicken behavior ( aka if you touch the chicken I kill you)

    PS I don't have a gun LOL just remembered mabe I will shoot him with my airsoph gun! PS I forgot I am also a Quaker mabe I could eat him then I will be justified in killing him for food.

    like as not what happened is that the battery in his collar (that zaps him if he gets too close to the "invisible fence") had died

    those of us with these devices sure wish there were some reasonable way of telling when the battery was about to go bad, without running the battery down by doing so

    (who has had her dogs "bust the electric fence" for that very reason ... )

    Nope, Henry It IS the neigbhour's fault if the dog gets out...
    That means that they need to check WHY.

    I'm proud of your bassett...WOW! And so glad that your birds are alright.

    Hmmmm, you must be my twin... I have a neighbor with a crazy yellow lab that she is planning to contain with a shock collar (he's just old enough to start training).

    I'm glad your chicken is OK. It's good to know in advance that those collars aren't 100% reliable.

    Cheers,
    Michelle

    Thanks She might be sore but is acting fine I think that it is sad that Labs (which can be great dogs) are being Inbred and losing all of there indeering qualties they are also often misstrained or not at all trained.

    Thanks,
