Q: Who do I contact about neighbors taking my dog out of my yard and into theirs without permission?

Not the first time this has happened, however, this is the first time I had to wait for the guy to go into his house to get my dog.

A: Contact the police if you have not given your neighbor permission to enter your yard and remove your dog. A simple "please don't do this anymore" would be a good way to begin the discussion, but if that has already happened and your requests have been ignored, you may wish to contact the police to politely deliver the same message.
