I am very frustrated and sad this morning. I have WONDERFUL neighbors who are very good friends of mine. However, their dog has killed at least a dozen of my birds at various times over the past year. I spent money and time reinforcing my fence. That kept him out for several months. Now this dog has taken to making holes in my fence. Every time I plug a hole, he makes a new one. My chickens are having to live in jail for their own safety right now. The neighbors are apologetic, I know they feel bad, and they're trying to keep the dog up. He keeps getting out and breaking into my property. What can I do to keep him out? I've already taken welded wire cattle panels and driven them into the ground and wired them to the bottom of the chain link. I'm considering hot wire, but we've got 5 acres and lots of trees. It would be nothing for a branch or something to fall on the wire and ground it out. There's got to be something I can put around the base of the fence to deter this dog.
