Hello all! I have a 9 year old female pit, my sweet Sasha girl!! I adopted her 3 years ago from a shelter after she was almost starved to death by her previous owners. She is the sweetest most submissive dog I have ever had, everyone is shocked when they see how well she behaves (INSIDE)! Recently we have been having some backyard behavior issues. About 6 months ago we moved into a house, so she now has her own yard ( a first for us since I have had her). We have neighbors on both sides that have dogs with a chain link fence separating them. One side has 4 little yappers, all mixed breeds, possible chihuahua's, shitsu's and possibly a jack russell terrier. Sasha can not stand these little guys, one in particular she chases the fence line back and forth, this has lasted almost 30 minutes at one point. Once she is in full pursuit, I can not call her off the fence line as she no longer listens to anything I say, I have to catch her by the collar and drag her inside. After reading many post I now know that she is in charge of the backyard... that being said what suggestions do you have? I have a tie down that is connected to the porch which she now has a 25 foot radius to run on, but will bark none stop if the neighbor dogs are outside. This barking problem has now landed us a code compliance warning from the city we live in... next time will be a $500 fine! Pleaes help any and all suggestions are much appreciated!
