Good point about the dogs. The trouble is the police would then be forced to spend too much time responding to barking dog complaints that the dog nazis out there would automatically start calling in. But you are correct, thieves avoid neighborhoods with a lot of dogs. Dogs attract too much attention, the enemy of crooks.
