    I would go out of my way to be nice to the neighbor and avoid conflict. What's going to happen when you debolt the dog and it's wailing like your killing it.

    If this happened to me, I would probably be in big trouble right at the point where she said "if your dog is ever missing". Not for cruelty to animals but for cruelty to humans! I admire your patience and self control. Like someone said, it is a two way street and I bet sometime she will be doing something that you don't like. Have a long memory!

    I have been in the same place about 9 years ago while Forceing to the pile in my driveway my "tree hugger, anti hunting" neighbor told me that she called the cops on me for animal cruelty.... after talking to the cops it was a non issue (for me) ... the next day her cat was on my deck which it usually was.... Red Wing has a cat leash law too..

    I called the human center and they quickly came and got it...

    It's your dog, yard, grass, leash, collar. Don't ruin any relationships with the neighbors but politely tell her to mind her own business. I would continue "business as usual." But I Love dogs and don't care so much about what people think of me or my dogs. LOL.

    Good Lord! I feel truly blessed to live where I do. I could not deal with some of the people you guys/gals are talking about.

    I'd call the police and tell them the woman is threatening me and threatening to steal my dogs. Get it on record first.

    I agree with Terry. At minimum start logging her threats.

    Personally I wouldn't FF in public. It's not always pretty and yes it does piss the neighbors off. Try if you can to find a better spot. Reminds me of a day many years ago when I was at a public beach with my son who was about 5 yrs old. The beach is full of family beach fun in the sun. Then came Mister Trainer with his lab. From FF to choke chain to the helicopter ride with his dog. He dragged the dog, kicked the dog, you name it. Not a soul on that beach was comfortable. I finally went up to him and explained that he was upsetting everyone. Well the guy got an attiitude about how it is a public place and he was training his dog. I said yeah, I got that part. You mean you are trying to train your dog and you suck at it. He explained that I don't understand, but oh yes I do! I get it, you want to train your dog. Finally I said a few naughty words and told him he was an idiot. Then I thanked him for making all the children cry and want to go home.

    See, I would find a nice private spot. Makes the world a little nicer. When the FF is done, go back to the yard for fun stuff.

    I agree with boone11 100% While you should feel empowered to train your dog on your own property, please imagine you are on video at all times. Don't give kooks ammunition that they can use against you.

    I'm not sure that a dog needs to "wail" in the debolting process, but I sure as heck would not debolt the dog in the front yard in this situation.
