Dogs Need Fences(or a leash at least)

This petition had 175 supporters

I had new neighbors move in next door, they got two dogs that they intended to use as guard dogs, but they never put up a fence. I have begged the property owners to put up a fence, they have refused.  I offered to pay for it or do it myself, they refused.  I contacted animal control and to my surprise, I found out that Jersey City has no fence requirement for unattended dogs.  My main concern is these dogs can and do jump into my backyard whenever they please.  I have two small children, a 1 years old and a 3 year old.  My fear is when these dogs are left outside and one of my children decides to go outside in their own backyard and gets attacked.  I put up a fence on my property already but the dogs are chewing through it and knocking it down.  I will have to put up another fence soon. I just want them to enclose their dogs. 

People should not have to live in fear of dog attack on a constant basis.  Fences should be required in Jersey City for large dogs.
