Thank you for contacting our JA team.
Since the dog is on the property in accordance with the lease
, then complaining to the landlord is unlikely to result in any action against you. That is likely why the individual(s) resorted to leaving the note on your door.
Their proper course of action would be to sue you for nuisance if the dog is creating a nuisance for them. They would have to prove to the court that it is interfering with their property rights.
Since you do not know who it is, you cannot obtain a restraining order against them. You could, however, set up surveillance so you can find out who it is that is coming to your door. Then you could file a petition for a restraining order against them in the local state court.
If the note is threatening, I would file a police report and provide them with a copy of the note so it is well documented.
