Nosey neighbor

Hey everyone I don't really know where I would post this but I think this is the closest category to my topic. So I have two dogs and the other day they got into a fight over food. Nothing too serious but we decided to seperate them for the time being. We kept one outside and one inside. We usually let them both in the house in the morning and then outside when were at work. Well when we had seperated the two a neighbor of mine decided to peer over our fence. She knocked on our door and said she was about to report us for keeping our dog outside. He has a house and water so we really didn't know why she would report us. We told her our reasons for putting him outside and she still refused to let it go. We had guest over and told her hen they leave we will see if they'll get along and she even went as far as to asking my guest when they plan on leaving. It made everything really uncomfortable because the only way she could possibly have seen into our yard was if she climbed our fence. And why was she climbing our fence in the first place? Well ever since that day we can hear her outside looking over the fence. My dog has a very distinctive bark when intruders come close so I know someone is out there. She's been going around telling our other neighbors aswell which is really annoying. She's been sayin that we need to give our dogs up to loving homes. Our home is a loving home. My question is...are we really in the wrong for letting our dogs out in our yard? In my opinion dogs should be in a yard as long as there's food water and shelter. Or is she wrong for climbing our fence and peering into our yard. Btw you can see into our house from the yard so what's stopping her from looking into our houses? We're scared she's going to take it Into her own hands and steal our dogs out of our yard when were not home. I would crate them but I work really long shifts and I don't think crating a dog or that long is healthy.

I'd say ignore her, but that'll get you but so far, so instead I say know your rights as a dog owner (which you can find in your local or state website animal care and control website) and at the most extreme install a camera facing your yard area outside (well that's what my hubby did and we are able to even view it while away from home on the Internet or our cell phones). At least you'd be able to monitor not just your dogs, but your nosey neighbor as well. On and did I mention you can even talk through the mic if your device and if can be heard through the camera (coolest & greatest investment EVER).

SN: The manufacturer of my camera is Foscam and Groupon actually has a great desk on them right now)

Good luck!

I'm with ceelint shelter, food (if your not home during feeding time) and water. Then if she keeps getting stupid, I would call the cops, and tell them that your scared she might try to hurt dogs, dogs have been killed in their backyards before.

or teach your dogs to jump when someone looks over, she wont look in again if a dog jumps right near her face.

Ok that would straight piss me off and I would have told her off too. Their dogs for goodness sake, being outside is neither illegal or cruel. Ya know what I'd do, I'd call the cops on her ass and make a police report. Not only is she trespassing if she comes into your yard but if the dog does end up going missing they'll know where to look

This! i would totally either call the cops on her, peeping tom type call, or find the laws that prove what ur doin is legal and print them out and confront her. if she continues to bug u... then call the cops. but yes food, water, shelt and secure yard are all perfectly fine. i personally dont leave my dogs in the yard cuz my neighborhood is ghetto and they would prolly go missing or end up dead. but i understand ur situation.

Thanks for the link! We're definitely putting up a camara. I've been doing some research and I'm pretty sure she's committing a couple misdemeanors. Peeping Tom disorderly conduct and disurpting quiet enjoyment or something like that. And im pretty sure i can sue her for harassment too. She's driving my dogs nuts!! They freak out everytime she pops her head over! Why doesn't she get it! I think the next time she threatens to report us I'm just going to say go ahead. They're not going I find anything wrong. We're not neglecting our dogs. It also really bugged me that she said were not a loving family. Like she knows our life! Or maybe she does...maybe she's been spying on us from the fence. Lol that's me just being paranoid tho. After I install the camara and catch her I'm goin to file a report. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks this is rediculous.

Tell her to take her nosey ass else where. She can call and report that your dog is outside all she wants lmao.


I am not as nice as you are and would have told a twit what for. You are doing nothing wrong and are doing what is best for your dogs as these fights can be very serious in this breed. Tell her to blow her self and mind her own business.

Oh an yes I would be filing charges against her.

Yea I would have let her have it lol. I'm confrontational especially when it comes to my dogs. The camera sounds like a good idea! She obviously doesn't have a clue if she thinks having a dog outside is neglect.

We too have the nosey neighbors. They feel that they can do no wrong because they go to church and all but if you do something similar to what they do, they are all up your behind about it.

Definitely report her ass.I would have already told her to fuck off and where she could go with her nosey ass.
Is it against the law to point a gun at her face while she's looking over?I do believe I would have done that too.But then again I am in the south where you can get away with something like that lol
If you were closer I'd give you some of these barb wire rolls that I have.Let her stick her hands up there on the fence to peep while that's there and see if she does it again

Get a surveillance camera. It's only a matter a time before this somehow escalates.

Lay ready to take some pictures of her and be sure she sees you doing so! She definitely could escalate her actions....very frustrating! You should try to document as much as you can with pix or videos and even a police report so if she calls them there will already be a record of her intentions.

I see you're in San Diego where the weather is mild, so your dog is probably not too cold. And you seem like a very responsible and caring owner. It sounds as if that neighbor has it out for you for personal reasons, or is just really bored. Very little you can do about that. Yes, its a good idea to cover your ass and document as much as possible like others have mentioned, but I would also just try to be as nice as possible to that person. I usually respond to my neighbors with a lot of kindness and communication. Killing them with kindness usually makes them back off, as opposed to reacting with anger or resentment. I realize that I am the one with the pitbull, so I try to be extra nice to remove a lot of the misconceptions and perceptions most people tend to have for pitbull owners. Yeah it takes some work, but that's just one of the many joys of owning a pitbull : )
