Going to edit myself and add that any dog "pack" need a clear concise leader, and pack ranks. However in my experience with gsds, and akitas, in general, I know they need it more so than others.

Yeah, ain't that amazin'? Don't have no runnin' water or 'lectricity, but she gots DSL!

I live in rural Virginia and the only high speed internet I can get is satellite, which I can't afford. Yet she lives out in the dangerous, isolated, wild west, shoot 'em up mountains so far from town, and gets high speed internet? On what? Her propane powered laptop?

Even if the OP is being honest about all these problems, keeping aggressive dogs is a bad idea. If somebody breaks into your house, they might steal any valuables laying around (like the propane powered laptop). You would be out a little bit of money. If on the other hand you have an aggressive dog, and it bites somebody, (especially in California), they are going to sue you and take away the cabin, the 8 degree cold barn, and the huge ranch.

I don't see why everyone finds this so hard to believe. Where I live it is 45 minutes down the highway to get into town, or to the hospital/doctor. We also don't get cell phone signal- unless you want to drive down the road a ways first, or run around the yard and you just might get lucky at the top of the hill. Only one small no name company that gives tv/cable/internet for this area as well. This is a pretty populated area, but the services haven't caught up with the housing boom from a few years back.

I have no issues with keeping aggressive dogs. Aggressive dogs are only a problem if they escape the yard. If someone enters my yard illegally and gets bitten that is their own fault. If you walk an aggressive dog in public (and know that dog is aggressive) you use a muzzle. The mail service does not enter the yard unless the gate is open. We also keep beware of dog signs by the gate. A good sturdy fence will help avoid any problems. I've also seen people with dogs put in a drop box by the gate that says leave package here...

Issues arise when people are stupid and do not contain their dogs, leave their gate open, or otherwise let their dogs roam. Completely avoidable!

I'm surprised no one here has had issues with Pitts being aggressive!

To the OP, why is there a 4 dog limitation if you live in the country? If you have to trade in dogs, I would switch the "slow" dog with something a little more aggressive.

You could also try an electric fence around the house set on the strongest setting, or place barb wire on top of any existing fencing- it will generally help deter climbers. I wouldn't want the horses near the barb wire though. Security cameras are another option. If you get the person on video, you might be able to get them arrested. You don't have to fence in the entire property- just something around the house.

I would put up several no trespassing and beware of dog signs as well. And make sure all boundaries of your property are well marked. A sign that says security cameras in use, could help as well.

45 minutes isn't 2 or 3 HOURS. Depending on which thread of the OP's you're reading, it's either 2, 2 1/2 or 3 hours to anything resembling civilization.

Except for the Yosemite and Yellowstone outbacks, I don't think there's any place in the US where you can't find civilization within a 1 hour drive. Oh, maybe Montana 'cause that's one huge state with not a lot of population, or maybe the Texas desert region, but not California.

I don't buy her stories. Unless an individual has specialized training, she can't just train her own service dog. Those trainers have to be certified. I should know; I have a SIL who trains young pups to be service dogs. It's a long, drawn out process, and neither aggressive nor fearful dogs make the cut.

I think that Speed is right. There is nowhere in California where it is 3 hours drive from civilization and 8 degrees at night. Maybe it is not supposed to be California, but that was my impression. Even if this is in Montana, I wonder about the internet service. I guess you could have a propane gas generator and satellite internet service. Maybe if the OP wants her story to seem credible, she can explain this issue.

About aggressive pitt bulls, we have a neighbor about a mile from here that has an extremely dangerous one. It has really put a damper on my riding and I don't like that dog. It does not wander up this way; if it does, it will not do it but once. If I am innocently going by their place, and that dog comes out and injures me, I will personally sue them for all they are worth. It is wrong to terrorize a community with a dangerous dog.

I did train my own service dog thank you. You just require a licensed trainer to sign off on the dog after spending several hours at a facility.

Since every one is so convinced that im lying I will try to describe where I live.

I live in the mounains above covalo california. It takes 1 hour to reach covalo from willits depending on the weather sometimes the road is covered in rocks and you have to drive slow.

To get to my house you must go past covalo towards indian dick up past the reservation. You have to take this road slow, most of it is ONE - LANED and it takes about an hour and a half. My property has electric and a satalite for internet. The other property I rent for animals does not.

My grandpa will not move, he doesnt suffer from robbers because he has 900 cattle around his property. His wife died here and so did his son(from drugs)

This is an EXTREMELY bad area to the point of where Elementry school kids brought meth to school when I was in 5th grade and tried to get me to take it, also a few months ago a dead body was found on the play ground. Another time a man discovered a crop of marajuana and the owners drug him down the road behind their truck and body parts were scattered everywhere.

Covalo isnt heaven. I hope you all will stop calling me a liar becuase im not lying. Covalo has a small store but I rarely shop there due to terrible prices.

Also I do have the freeze up problem called a self induced acoma, and yes when I get angry I do attack people. WHy in the world can't I have both those problems?

Also another reason I don't want drugs is because of how far out of town I live, if I did get suicidal, who would know? No one would discover me for several days, and im not willing to risk it.

I think that you and your grandfather should move somewhere safe. He may not be capable of making his own decisions if he is insisting on endangering both you and himself.
