My neighbors have two grown pitbulls that have been EXTREMELY aggressive towards me and my son ever since they moved in about 6 months ago. There is a thin wooden fence seperating my courtyard and the neighbors backyard. So everytime my son and I leave the house, the dogs start barking furiously and hurling themselves at this thin wooden fence. Each time they do it, the fence gets weaker and weaker. I asked my neighbor if they were dangerous and if I should be worried, and he said that only one of them is dangerous, the other one is all bark. It's gotten to the point where I have to carry my son out of the house when we know the dogs are out because he is so terrified. Personally, I like dogs and I've never had a problem with pit bulls, but these dogs are terrifying. I often worry about what would/will happen if/when they end up breaking down that fence. Would they attack me and my son? I totally get that they are just trained to protect their family and their property, but I have to do the same. I have respected them and the family because it shouldn't be any of my business, but these dogs are really starting to casue problems. A portion of my house is connected to their backyard and if they can hear me or my son inside, they start throwing themselves against my house. Sometimes they come out at 3 and 4 in the morning and bark profusely nonstop right outside my bedroom. Tonight something happened, and it has to be the last straw. I am convinced that it is a very unsafe situation. I was taking out my trash and my back gate is just inches away from my neighbors fence. The two dogs came running when they heard me and started jumping to try and get over the gate and they were coming very close. Since their gate is so close to mine, when I ran back through my gate to go back inside, one of them jumped up and snapped at me and was less than an inch away from biting my hip. I really really hate to do this, but I am going to have to report the dogs. Which could really be bad for my neighbors because both my house and their house are owned by the same landlord, and when I moved in, he made it very clear that he had a strict "No Pet" policy on his properties. I havent said anything thus far, because it is none of my business. I didnt know if they had something worked out with the landlord. So the advice that I need is, how should I go about reporting? Should I talk to my neighbors about the issues? Or should I call the landlord? Should I call the police? Animal Control will be the last thing I do because I'm afraid off the action they might take.
