I have GUARD DOGS ON DUTY signs on my fence. Not that any of my dogs would do anything except make a lot of noise, but there have been a lot of break- ins in the area. So far I haven't had anyone do anything but slow down enough to read the signs. Is there any liability to having those?

I would call the police and let them know about the issue. Do you know where they live? If you do have a chat with there parents.

I don't know exactly where they live. I'm pretty sure they're not all in one family though. Various ethnic backgrounds.

Smack that sucker right in the middle. You could even make it more convincing by hooking up a car battery to your fence and or running wires to it.

I'm sneaky like that...always thinking outside the box, lol.

Kids are scardy cats, some are mouthy but when it comes down to it no one will touch that fence cause they have no clue whether it's electric or not
When I was a kid I would have touched it because it said it was electric. Use to touch the electric fence at my aunts farm around the bull pen. Hurt lile hell everytime but I still did it.

If it were me, and the kid wasn't already inside my yard but still climbing on the fence, I would have just opened the door and let Aspen out (she's all bark and no bite, but they won't know that). The dog would probably scare them more than you yelling at them.

Yes that's like the time my mom told me not to touch the iron because it was hot, just as she walked away. Guess what I did as soon as she was gone?? lol

If I knew 100% that He wouldn't hurtle our 5' fence in one leap... I would have done just that but, he did jump it 2 times when he first came to live with us so I decided not to do that. but I like your way of thinking

I have locks on my gate but the neighborhood kids like to play in my front yard for some reason. It gives Tyson major anxiety to see them out there so I have had to be the "old lady" that yells at them to get off my lawn. It helped my cause that when as I was yelling that, Ty ripped a hole in the screen door and stuck his head out. They ran pretty quickly back home.
