I just got a dog, (pit bull). She isn't the problem, the neighbors dog is. Every time I take her out & he's out, he goes viciously crazy. Now if he's not out, you won't hear a thing from her, there are no problems. When he is there, and it is often & for long periods; there are Serious Problems. He will be at the end of his chain just trying his best to get at her. She then tries to engage, probably because he is frightening her and I have a real hard time controlling her. Their dog does the same thing with the other neighbors dogs. Except he tries to get at them through the fence. I am afraid of their dog, when he does this so I know my dog is. They do Nothing to stop him. I am worried. He is chained behind their vehicles, so I never know when he's out until he is just there. Would a cease & desist letter help this problem? I am deeply concerned.
Sending a letter is unlikely to help, and could make matters worse. Neighbor problems can be difficult to resolve. Try talking to the neighbor about the problem
