That’s when it started, she explained. “People looking through the windows, looking through the doors, trying to come up over the fence. On Saturday, someone threw a drone into our yard to play the game.” Schaeffer says strangers on her property have brought complaints from neighbours when her dogs bark. “I can look at a 1 a.m. and I will see people outside playing and the dogs are losing it. Last week bylaw came to the door and they said, ‘You have got complaints, your dogs are barking.’ She is like, ‘This is all so new, we don’t even know what to tell you,'” she said.
