We had kids come into our garden a lot (to collect balls etc despite it being a no ball games street) before we got Blu. Funny how a great dane makes kids much more polite - they come to the door and ask first now! And if it happens more than once or twice, their ball becomes Blu's ball!
Just because kids will be kids and I didn't want them tempted into getting in to trouble - nicking fruit off a fruit tree isn't exactly the most terrible crime.My mum did speak to one of their parents but they didn't want to know. I just don't want to run the risk of the dogs biting any of them because the law would not be on my side. I don't think they would bite them............. well maybe the heeler would - just a little taste though
