Argh! Theres been a group of kids running up and down the lane at the back of my house, dog is in garden and every time they are passing they're banging on fence and 'barking' at dog which sets him off. When I say every it's happened about 4 times now, but am not sure how many times I should suck it up before I shout through the fence to stop it or should I have done this the 2nd time, or bring him in? First dog here so not sure if there is 'ruling/etiquette' around things like this!

I would have yelled after the first time, but then kids being noisy really annoys me ha ha

I'd chuck a bucket of the dog's crap at them stick my head over the fence and ask them to please not bang it.

May need a ladder to stick head over fence but I'm considering the chucking of the poo!

I'd have brought my dog indoors by now as he is a bit anxious. Also leaving him out to bark is encouraging his behaviour. If he wanted back out I would go out with him if the kids were still in the area.

The kids would then get bored and stop doing it/go elsewhere.

Train him to ignore it, call him in, treat. Be consistent, he'll bring himself in soon looking for treats. Don't try to tackle the kids. If the fence isn't closed panels, consider investing in some.
