Report her to the dog warden ...

I don't think anything can be done until one of them does actually get over the fence although the dog warden could give her some advice .

If her dogs manage to escape they will be deemed out of control, your dogs are on lead and under control.

The law changed in 2015. You only have to feel threatened by a dog's behaviour to report to the dog warden.

Please get some Pet Corrector & carry it with you. It is available in a small size so you can carry it in a pocket. Or a small drinks tin with a dozen small stones inside & taped at the top to create a rattle (the Fevertree tonic ones are perfect). Just be prepared for the dogs, should they escape.

They are causing a nuisance & the council should act (unlikely). Just make sure that you & your children are aware & can take defensive action if necessary.

There's 2 dogs I know who dragged 2 separate dogs through their garden fence and mauled them. They have put wooden boards up now on the metal gates but I'm sure that was their choice and they weren't ordered to do it. I doubt the police would do anything for a dog on dog attack and the dog warden would only probably have a word with the owner and advise her to keep her dogs under control in the future.

There's a Labrador I walk past sometimes in its front garden and it goes nuts when a dog goes past, the gate isn't secure either and I know that this dog has attacked loads of dogs in this area. It attacked my friends dog out of nowhere but the owner still carries on oblivious walking it off lead and pretends it's never done it before when it attacks yet another dog.
