    I have not experienced this to the scale you are, but I used to live in the desert here and wild dogs were a real problem. I had two pit bulls and they would re direct at each other when they couldn’t get through the gate to get to dogs passing by. I don’t recall them being escalated due to the dogs marking but certainly Rogue (my dog now) would be aggravated by that. I wonder if there are any old cowboy tricks to keeping dogs away from property…….like the old urinating on garden fencing to keep deer out…(that never worked as far as could tell….but in theory it sounds nice). This is a tough one and I will be sure to follow your updates. They do make attack vests for dogs…..maybe have your kids wear one during walks/carting?
