    We have two small dogs in our family.. Their names are False and Alarm. :D False woofs softly which sets off Alarm into the loudest ear piercing bark you've ever heard. :cuss: Great dogs but they have half pound triggers so we never really know if there's an intruder on the property.

    That's about where I'm at. I have a Golden Retriever and a lab/beagle mix that stay outside unless it gets above 95° or below 15°. These aren't aggressive guard dogs and in fact they both love people, but they also bark so much that delivery people typically don't get out of their car, they honk and wait for me to come outside. And that's all I ask of them, to alert me to what's going on.

    Frontline or Advanticks topical treatments or Seresto collars. I've got a large yard and my dogs often go back in the woods with the kids. As long as I stay up on the applications and don't buy treatments from Amazon (I think I've had some counterfeits that didn't work) they don't get fleas or ticks or chiggers. Everyone's been telling me this is a bad year for ticks, and I've only found a couple and they were both on my son.

    Not sure OP needs much of a driveway alarm if the front step is only 25 feet to the road.

    My Great Dane scares the crap outta people that come by.
    My disabled wife sleeps in the living room
    And my boy lets me know if I need to get up.
    I pity the poor sucker that tries to mess with my wife.

    Normally he's a big teddy bear, but DO NOT hurt the momma!
    I told her of this writing & got a big smile from her.

    I agree with CapnMac. Before you do anything else you need to find out where you stand with that road. Once you have that information you can determine where to go from there.

    Assuming you find out that you own that property gating the road could cause its own issues in terms of having people cut your locks but there are ways around that too.

    Having said that though, you need to find out where you stand before you can really go any further.

    That's good advice.

    Pending that, there's little more of substance to be said.

    Let's put his to bed, and start a new post when the question has been addressed.
