  • Install a moat. Install barbed wire. Get meaner dogs.
  • get an airsoft gun and shoot it at them when they hop it, it stings a little and itll probly scare them half to death, but make sure to hide when they hop it so u can jup out and hose em!!
  • Tell them the fence is electrified.
  • ELECTRICITY HURTS ,hook it up
  • Get a bigger, meaner dog.
  • Electric barbed wire... ooh.
  • Put out a video camera on a table, next to it put a shotgun (not loaded). Neither of them even have to be hooked up to each other, or even on, but if they see it it will scare the bageebas outta them. lol
  • get an electric fence and or a pit bull
  • Two words - Hot Wire
  • Take pictures of them...repeatedly. This act is harmless persay, but quite effective. Its human nature to be unerved when pictures are taken of our behavior. I then would file a restraining order.
  • I take it you like these little monsters, so you have to be tricky. I would tell them there are multiple hidden cameras installed because something is missing, and you're pretty sure the culprit is coming in through the backyard. Tell them you plan to catch the thief on film and there is no way the thief can escape being filmed. You might tell them the police and a secret security guard are also watching your house for trespassers.
  • It's a tad radical, but you could try razor wire yo... http://www.alamofence.com/alrr-h~1.jpg
  • First of all, post a No Trespassing sign and let the parents know about it. If for some reason they hurt themselves jumping over your fence, they'll sue you. Heaven forbid a dog bites them. I would pass out fliers to every house and front door in the neighborhood. Announce that you know it is happening and that you will not allow it and you might press charges. It will just empower them, but anything will. You need to reduce your liability. Try to correct or fix what is necessary for the kids to not get through the fence. Show an effort even thought they will climb it anyway.
  • Kitt, I wonder if you have tried talking to them. You do sound as though you like them. I know alot of kids today are punks, but I've had more luck with just conversing with them. What do you have for dogs?
  • I'm thinking, wiring the fence into the electricity supply.....
  • Introduce a Doberman Pincher into the mix.....I was thinking of a Pit Bull but those should be outlawed.
  • Electric fense? No, no. These may be just kids, but kids are reasonable. Just talk with them. You'll be surprised on how well they listen.
  • Get a metal spiked fence, you know, the kind that stands high and has a sharp point on the tip of each stick linking the fence. See if they want to climb that or not! Or plant prickly painful rosebushes behind or in front of your fence. Get the tall prickly hardy kind of rosebushes. I did that, without a fence (the rosebushes act as an effective barrier) and now that keeps pesky kids and roaming dogs out of our yard. You need to plant quite a few and plant them closely together. You can also substitute bushy "mugo pines" instead of rosebushes, if you don't like the fallen leaves from rosebushes in the fall. Hope that helps Kitt-tastrophy. :)
  • Run around the outside of your house all times of day and night in a robe and hair curlers screaming the devil is coming tonight! And he is coming after us all! Then do some strange dance..... I kind of think this might have an effect. ;)
  • Electricity!
  • Paint the outside of it with vandal paint that should stop the little beggers.
  • Borrow a different (mean) dog for a day ot two. No liability issues if they trespass onto your property.
  • Install and elextric fence...with barbed wire.
  • Tell their mothers.
  • Get a new dog. :P
  • Make something of a moat around the inside of your yard with doggie doo so that when they jump over when you're not home they slip and fall and regret the whole incident.
  • Get one of those motion detecting automatic water gadgets for your yard. When kids jump the fence the water shoots them until they scramble back over to the other side! Eventually, the parents will catch on that "their kid" was involved and get tired of them tracking water through the house - If nothing else! On the up-side you'll have a good laugh daily! Get the video camera too, you'll want to see it in slow motion! This gadget can be tweaked so the dogs motion is not sensed also.

  • I would get myself a car battery and some barbed wire to staple along the top after hooking it up to the battery. If the shock does get them a barbs will. And the video will be halarious.
  • Call the police on them, or if you don;t want to, get a friend to pretend to be a cop an explain that its a serious offense. Scare tactics are fun.
  • Broken bottles on the top of the fence.
  • tazer gun...
  • You've got the wrong kind of dogs, my friend. You need to get some mean-assed "junkyard" dogs like Rotwilers, Dobermans, Pitt Bulls, etc. The kind with crazed, wild eyes and huge canine fangs. ...the kind that can gulp down 5 pounds of meat in a single swallow. Then you can DARE the little bastards to jump your fence.
  • Last I checked, in NH you are allowed to shoot trespassers IF you have adequately posted signage. Put up a few "No trespassing" signs and shoot the first little bastard that ignores the sign. of course, your jurisdiction may differ ;)
  • Electrocute the fence, and switch out the dogs with exploding ones =P
  • put an electric wire on top, it is common in texas, even in pastures to keep cows in, its low DC voltage, won't hurt or kill anyone but on jolt and the fence jumping is over.
  • get some barbed wire once they see or touch that they wont even try it again !!!
  • I have another idea that might be better than my first one. I think you should cover the whole fence in lye, and when they jump it just dont do anything, then later when they get some sort of liquid on their hands, (most likely water), it will burn the ands until they put vinegar on it, but they wont know this so they will probly just use water that will burn their hands even more...they should never come back again.
  • i would go mental. i'm glad i'm not u because i would lose it
  • get a camera installed and everytime they jump your fence when you are not there, call the cops they can be charged with tresspassing.
  • bouncing betty mines can dissuade the most ardent fence jumper to not try it again! LOL
  • Talk to their parents. Shoot them with a Super soaker water gun a few times. Train your dog, to bite them in the butt Take your dogs for a walk, when the kids are playing, so they can play with them for a little while.
  • Install an electrical fence and a warning sign.
  • hammer carpet grippers to top of fence, stops critters also
  • Get bigger dogs!
  • Aside from electric fence, there's not much you can do. Be careful - I know the law around me is EVEN IF the kids are in your yard, unattended and trespassing, if the dog attacks them YOU ARE LIABLE. F*ked up law if you ask me.
  • Set up a camera for when your not there. and when you get footage go and show the kids parents. or make the fence higher. possibly deal with them yourself
  • Call the police, and have them issue a criminal tresspassing warrent. If they do it again they go to jail. If they are trying to do something to your dogs, there might be some charges there too.
  • razor wire
  • wow, that is a big problem. If they should hurt themselves while jumping your fence you can be held liable. I would contact someone either in the police department or city hall and let them know of your problem and how you can protect yourself above all from all liabilities. We live in a lawsuit happy world, becareful.
  • Connect some jumper cables from a car battery and onto the fence. Zap!
  • put a hot wire jsut inside it
  • Get bigger dogs
  • Razor wire, electric fence, Pungee sticks, deep pit covered with vegetation or IED's. Any of those should produce a successful results. Good luck!
  • Tell the kids they are tresspassing...where are their parents? geez. Your question is funny in a way...usually it's the dog jumping over the fence.. :p
  • Why are they getting to your dogs? To play or to hurt them? If they are doing damage to your property or pets, file charges with the police and a restraining order to get their parents involved. Same if you don't want them in your yard period. What if they get hurt and their parents want to sue you?
  • theres no need to go electricuting children now is there. Build a higher fence and cover the whole lot in shit straight from your dogs butts. see if they like them so much when they smell like arse.
  • Put a cactus plant all around your fence.
  • Get a mean dog
  • teach your dogs to bitem!
  • Report it to the police. Catch it on camera. Parents are responsible for their childrens actions... they could be fined, maybe. I dont know. But if they are not minors, they can be fined or jailed... all the better. I wouldnt suggest teaching the dog to bight until you install a camera, first, anyway. Without sufficient evidence, they will more than likely put your dog down and default to human-victim standpoint like most parents do.
  • one word... electrify or two... barbed wire
  • First inform the parents if you know where these kids live, tell them if it happens again you will press charges for trespassing. Then, immediately set up an outdoor weather proof camera (or before you talk to the parents). Last, install one of those motion detector automatic waterer gadgets for your yard. It works turning between 180-360 degrees. When kids jump the fence the water shoots them (with a little force)until they scramble back over to the other side! If it happens again, call the police on them for trespassing, tell them you have proof because the kids are on video. Eventually, the parents will catch on that "their kid" was involved in something strange, and get tired of them tracking water through the house - If nothing else! On the up-side you'll have a really good laugh - daily! At least until they stop! It's no fun getting shot with a steady stream of water with a little force by surprise! Especially fully clothed. You'll want to see it in slow motion! This gadget can be tweaked so the dogs motion is not sensed also. It will be worth the cost! Because that's the down side, you'll have to dish out the money for the camera and water detector. Make sure the camera is automatic (which means it turns on when it detects motion, and off by itself) just like the automatic water detector.
  • Two words: thistle stalks.
  • put spikes at the top of the fence
  • a pellet gun? my brother shot me in the eye with one when i was 6, it hurt
  • I have this exact same problem. We have the kids "from you know where" that live behind us and the parents are just as bad and they are a weathly and sort of "notirous" family where we live! I have called the police and filed a report..you can do this over the phone. The parents have been talked to several times...and we have "recorded" the conversation..and they know it! Also we took pictures of the kids coming over the fence and we put up "No Tresspassing" signs!! We even put up a new fence..they were sticking things through the slats in it and teasing the dogs with food and poking them with sticks. They also urinate on our fence and throw their trash over in our yard! When we started taking the pictures...they stopped most everything! Now that they know we "have" evidence on them!! I want to put some nasty grease on the top of the fence to see if that will get to them!! Apparently, if you have "warned" them and the parents, what ever happens is "their" fault from then on! I would also call your local police to come out and have a talk with the parents, if they are hesitant about coming for such a minor thing...tell them you are "afraid there may be Trouble or even Violence if they don't". That usually gets the police out there! We are lucky though...ALL the neighbors have complained about these two kids and the parents have had to send them away for the summers so we are sparde then. And isn't that a shame...the parents are so unconcerned with the way their kids behave, they do nothing to correct the situation like "teaching" them manners and respect...they just avoid the problem all together and send them to a camp and let others deal with their rotten behaviour!! Good Luck!
  • Get a bigger dog.
  • Put up an electric fence! I know I would if they kept doing it even though they knew they got caught. Call the police too! Or if not then, grab a paint ball gun and guard your territory! XD
  • Put something sticky on the fence, so when they jump they get it everywhere. Or Hot Sauce, Peanut Butter, or anything that smells bad......
  • I would install an electric fence the kind that you use to keep dogs in the yard one shock from that should do it
  • capture them one at a time and keep them in your basement. dont let them loose.
  • Take them home to the parent and talk to the parents. If they won't stop the kids, call the police and talk to them.
  • Call the cops, put spikes on top of your fence, make the fence bigger. I have that problem but I'm not allowed to have a fence where I live and one of my dogs were poisoned
  • Put something sick on the top of the fence. Talk to their parents. Put up motion sensor sprinklers? Make your lawn gnomes look extra ferocious? ... I dunno.. ~+~
  • Don't feed the dogs and make them irritable until you get home. They won't vault the fence and get mauled, will they?
  • Try a security camera and filing charges. It works wonders.
  • two words: barbed wire
  • autoturet shotgun with rocksalt. get some real dogs. surveilance camera and no tresspassing signs... followed by a call to the cops.
  • put up a sign.. " BECOME AN ORGAN DONOR... JUMP OVER THIS FENCE " reverse psychology.. hehehehe..
  • Get a killer Pit
  • Put the dogs indoor. AND install an alarm system.
  • You probably can't.
  • these little punks must have parents. Make it really clear to the parents that you are not playing...you do not want there kids in your yard. Call the local police.
  • Stand there,and make it clear that if they even try it they will regret it
  • post no trespassing signs and plant cactus by all of the fences, the ones with the big thorns.when i was a child my dad did that and it worked.
  • Put a no trespassing sign on the fence.Then tell thier parents you want them to keep their kids out of your yard because your dogs sometimes bite. If the parents ignore you call the police when you see the kids in your yard and the police will tell them about trespassing punishments.. Otherwise, you should leave the dogs in your house when you are out....or raise the height of your fence. You didnt say how old these kids are..
  • barbed wire and embed shards of glass in your fence. That's what they do in other countrys
  • By a paint ball gun and pepper their asses!
  • I don't know what your allowed in town, but here in the country I'd put up an electric fence. Not one to hurt anyone, just enough to give them a bite. If there parents can't control them and teach them respect, maybe the fence will. Good Luck!
  • 1)electirc fence 2)barbed wire 3)buyy a gun and shot it off at rando when there jumping the fence 4)chase them with a knife and/or chainsaw that should make them shit there selfs
  • make it electric
  • Plant cactus near the fence, on the inside so they will find it on the way down. They wont be back.
  • Get a mean and nasty dog that would rip one of their legs off. That should limit their jumping.
  • one word:velociraptor
  • Land mines.
  • run an electric wire along the top and make sure to post that it is an ELECTRIC fence. It works great. My son did pee on one though when he was little, never did that again. Oh and post a No Tresspassing sign as well.
  • razor wire, track down their parents and let them know they will be arrested for trespassing next time, or even a shotgun shoved in their face might scare the crap out of them. I think letting their parents know what is happening and how serious you are about it might do the trick depending on the parent.
  • Use 'Anti Climb Paint' on your fence. It doesn't dry, so they get it on their clothes and skin. You are supposed to post a warning that you are using it, but make it very small and in an out of the way place. Also, consider informing the police that you are being harassed. Good luck.
  • two ways to stop them kids..... 1) buy a new dog that will bite the shit out of them 2) take a electrical cord and cut the end that does'nt go in the wall off and strip the ends,wrap them around the fence in a hidden place and when your gone plug it up,when the kids touch the fence it'll send a couple hundred volts in them and i bet they wont touch it agin.....
