Hi all, I've been brainstorming about how to discourage a neighbor's dog when it comes to my chickens, and I'd like to run the idea past the BYC experts My neighbor's dog is a trained bird-dog, and every time I come home and let out the chickens, he mashes his nose up against the fence dividing our properties, and breathes/snorts like Kujo for a few minutes before digging furiously to get under the fence. My neighbor stops him when they are around, but I am getting more and more worried about the dog eventually getting under the fence. I have been playing around with the idea of sprinkling some sort of pepper along the fence-line to discourage the dog from his freaky serial killer breathing through the fence. I'm also hoping that pepper would mask the scent of the chickens as well, which hopefully would discourage him from digging. Does this sound like it'd actually work? And if so, is there any kind of pepper in particular I should look into? Please let me know what you guys think!
