Well, IMO, if he "tends to scuttle away" as you say he does, you may never be able to catch him in the act when he's doing it and may have to "beard the lion in his den" and actually go knock on his door to talk to him. Then make it perfectly clear, with no room for misinterpretation and/or misunderstanding, that his harassment of your dog has got to stop or you will notify police about it.  Whether you really want to involve the police in it or not, they may have to be...especially if what he's doing can be considered as harassment of not just the dog but also the dog's owners.

This is really more a case for a person acting than casting a spell, I think. I realize magic is the easy answer, but what it sounds like is needed here isn't a protection spell so much as going next door and talking to the guy and keeping the dog in when no one is going to be home. I'll also add here, that a person is going to have to make an attempt to stop the dog from barking whether that means bringing her in when she gets vocal or going out and putting a stop to the dog's antics in the yard.

Randall doesn't have nearly the problem with barking dogs that I do, but I lived in an apartment for years and I had far more dogs than I should have (I was breeding and showing at the time). It was imperative that I keep the kids quiet so they didn't disturb the neighbors. That's not changed even though I live in a house.

If things were as easy as casting a spell and/or doing magic for whatever reason, there'd be far fewer problems with everything in the world.

But then there'd be much less fun and disappointment because everything would become routine. Wink

I figure most of the people who think 'routine' and 'boring' are bad, haven't had hard enough lives. Wink

Who has some good ones?
I am thinking Pearl needs one b/c my neighbor's icky, creepy adult son keeps teasing her, when he's around. She can be barky, he has a legitimate complaint against her, but the more he rattles her the more she does her thing, duh. I have not yet spoken to him, have not had the appropriate opportunity, but will of course do that as well.
tia for any ideas/help

Other folks have given good advice about keeping her indoors.  You might also consult the vet to see if her barking is related to excessive anxiety.  Generic prozac and some other anti-anxiety drugs are actually pretty inexpensive and many people find them helpful for animals.

well, that's the thing. I understand his irritation, but I also know that he makes it worse with teasing her, and he thinks it's fun. Detestable. I have quite a lot of protection on the house and property and everyone in it already, I am perhaps overreacting, it's true. I have to say something to him, the next time I catch him though, he's *so icky about it. He sneaks up on her and barks-so gross.

This jumped out at me... a thought in a different direction.
Something about this sounded familar and thoughts of one of my nephews kept popping in. I have a strong feeling that your icky neighbour is very much like my nephew. As a child he seemed to take pleasure in getting animals going, teasing them, and laugh his head off. We worried and always kept a close eye on him for signs of animal abuse. Which it never went any further. He does this to this day *he's 26 or something*. I have seen him do this to dogs as he walks by them and laughs his bloody head off saying things like, look at the little bugger go. He gets a kick out of the reaction. He has a golden retriever and a couple of cats which he does the same too... yet his animals see it as play/wrestle time and they respond the same but with a tail wag.

Just a thought Rose... your neighbour may be this type of person.. just thinking it's fun to get your dog going... or as my nephew would say, ripping around going crazy.

Yep. And get her a crate (you don't say what size she is but there are crates for all sizes). Remove her access to him and you'll go a long way to solving your problem.

She is medium small dog, 20ish# terrier mix. I really regret not crate training her when she was little. I am sure it would have curbed the whole nervousness thing, I'm sure. But I was a young and tender dog mom, way back then, (Pearl is 13) and thought it was too mean....silly.

Here's her pic...Pearl wearing her pearls...

No, see, I've talked to him in general terms already. I am not going to get threatening, that is not my way. I will ask him to stop, and if he doesn't stop, then I will take action. If he is surprised by that, I hardly see that as my problem.

But here is the really interesting thing, and what makes me so glad I took the time last fall to do some very serious protection work around here. The guy has totally lightened up. I don't know why. He's been back there painting his mom's back deck the past two days (totally half-assed, this is how these folks are,b ut anyway...) and has been *nice-polite even. Steve mentioned tonight at dinner that he has had a couple of good property-related conversations with the guy, and Pearl has been totally fine when we get home. I can tell when he's been hassling her, b/c of course she's super nervous and hypervigilant, BARK BARK BARK.
magic is real, jai Maa, whatever works is good.

oh, I *totally agree. I also see that this is a "less is more" magic moment, the work has already been done, no need to push the river.

It's interesting you should bring that up, one of the suggestions I've heard is using Rescue Remedy for animal anxiety. I know a couple of people who swear by this for their pets, and Bach Flower Remedies have worked well for me, personally. I'll talk to my homeopath and see what she thinks.

Given how things have mellowed out with him, I am hoping this is the case. And Pearl is an old and wise dog; if she figgered out he is not actually trying to harm her, she may have settled down about him, in general. I'll have to watch and see.
