Think about how he would like going to the pound to get his dogs, would that teach him a lesson to drive an hour using his time and money (gas+dogs)? What about the property laws where you're at? Are you able to "confiscate" these dogs,keep them in your custody then release them to the authorities and then have him answer to them? Of course there is another option but it's not one to discuss openly. On a lighter note, welcome to the forum and hopefully you'll get some better insight to this matter just hang in there.
