Sanford, NC asked in Personal Injury and Animal / Dog Law for North Carolina

Q: How do I get my neighbor to stop feeding my dog her leftovers? I've asked, given a letter she still puts in my yard?

I've asked her to stop in person a couple times, written a letter and given it to her and talked to her landlord. She stops for a while then starts up again. Is there anything else I can do? My yard is fenced in and I should be able to let my dogs out into it without any problems or having to go out with them or check my yard first.

My one dog has food allergies which I've explained to her and it causes him to itch constantly and get a yeast infection. They're both on a grain free diet. She also throws bones in the yard which can be harmful. She has her own pets and leaves food out on her porch 24/7 for them which attracts other animals to the area. I'm not sure what else I can do.

A: Set down and talk to her. Maybe with someone else --like a vet assistant --so she won't want to look bad by giving you an issue.
