Default Opinion on barking dogs?

Saw on TV today two neighbors in court over barking dogs. The one neighbor said he and his family cannot sleep because their neighbors dogs bark all night long keeping them awake. He went to the neighbor and asked him what could be done and the neighbor blew him off and told him to mind his own business.

I have (thank goodness) never experienced having to live next to barking dogs but I can imagine it can be a nightmare. What amazes me is that there are folks who own dogs that bark non stop and could care less who it bothers, keeps awake, or affects.

I would never dream of causing that type of issue with one of my neighbors. IMO one of the rudest things a person could do.

I lived next door to a guy like that. He told me that they are dogs and that's what dogs do. To get something done would have required a lot of effort on my part to get not very desirable results from county or LEOs so I just dealt with it and didn't sleep very well until they got evicted.

Had a very likable Sheppard next door. Outside around 10 pm and non stop sharp sounding yap. Water hose. Would stop. Had spoke with neighbor and I consider them friends but! So I started spraying the dog and their bedroom window. They never said a word but brought the dog in. All good. Now I have a hound that can bay with the best close to me. Long woeful moans in the morning. I just get my stratocaster out and play along with some blues. (whoops I just confessed I am noisy as well)

I dealt with that for a few years. Folks that used to live next door had four Shih Tzus. Every night about the time I was going to bed they let them out and they would bark nonstop for an hour or more until they went back in. I would occasionally call them on it and they would apologize but never did anything about it. They were aggressive little turds - canine version of short man syndrome. Finally one of them bit off more than he could chew. He dug under the fence and attacked my good natured doofus lab, latching on to his ear. Ol’ Buck finally had enough of this little maniac attacking him in his own yard and ended him. I kinda felt bad about it but that also ended the barking problem

Had a large dog next door that would bark for hours. Made about 20 calls to the cops over it. Had to keep a log of all the barking. Per the cops request shared my list with them. They gave it to the DA. Then one day the barking stopped.

Here, you will get a citation for dogs that bark all night or day excessively. Mine doesn't bark all night cause she sleeps inside. City ordnance are just another reason I want to get out of this town.

Just curious - so if you move out of town and are next to a neighbor will you care if your dogs are barking and keeping them awake all night?

How do you guys feel about the occasional barker. i.e. the dog barks at the neighbor's cat?

I only have one dog. And she is 11. My last one. Like I said, she sleeps indoors. And yes, I would care if she barked all night. Cause I currently have neighbors who have dogs that bark at anything. Some all night. And I hate it ! I wanna move out of town cause I hate other people sticking they're nose in my business ! And telling me what I can and can't do on my property (without paying for some kind of permit), among many other things ! I plan on being where I can not see any neighbors, smell them, or hear them! Any more questions?

Big difference in a dog during the day occasionally barking at something versus constant barking and all night?

IMO difference story all together

Some of y’all need to realize that there are some truly crazy/unstable people in this world. You think you are being sly by poisoning their dog. Then they catch you outside or roll up in your house and “end” you. And before all you Special Forces Sniper warfare commandos say “let them try”, I’m fairly certain that it wouldn’t take much for the average Joe to get the drop on most of you.

Just realize that things are not like they used to be. People are not like they used to be. Don’t make yourself or your family a target.

IMO, the only thing worse than a excessively barking dog is their owners who can hear it barking but don’t care about if it bothers the neighbors. My dogs wear bark collars, cause they started occasionally bark at other dogs barking in the hood.

They sell boxes when a dog barks it emits a high frequency sound. Conditions dog not to bark. Works like a bark collar but from your yard.

I bought a house on 4 acres in a tiny country town years back. The neighbor had this German Shepherd on a giant log chain and as soon as it got dark he would bark all night non-stop, literally all night every night for 4 years. At first I was going to go kill it, I wondered how anybody could listen to their dog bark like that next to their house all night. I learned to live with it through lots of prayer but it was ridiculous to say the least. I still hate barking dogs!

I was going to mention this. They are not expensive and I would probably install two.

Back in the day I took some old pots and pans and tin cups and a pulley and raised them up a tree over a wood deck. Ran the rope into our bedroom. When the idiots acted up I would go open the window and drop the pans 10 feet to crash and bang. Took a week or so before {the dogs and neighbor} got the message to shut the hell up.....

Our neighbors all have dogs but none do enough barking to bother anyone. There is a house down the street that has what sound like two dozen yappers that go psycho any time you walk down the street. Not sure how you can live in a house with that.

I would go crazy. It doesn’t take much to wake me up and once I’m awake I’m awake for a while.
If their dogs kept me awake and they didn’t care to fix the issue I would keep them awake. Ring the doorbell nonstop or call the house phone on private just to hang up when they answer.

Yes while its rude to have a neighbor that does nothing about a barking dog you're limited to what actually can or will be done. My solution was ear plugs but not for everyone. I've been told by adjacent neighbors it became music to their ears. No way

They use a big box fan or two..so they can't hear them barking.

Not true! I've lost several fights and most of them were not with special forces sniper warfare commandos or ninjas


Op I recommend the barking box, they work well. I've used the one that's about $100, think there are some cheaper ones now but I haven't tried them.

Every time someone has any sort of problem with a dog on this forum, all the Big Tough Dog Killers come out of the woodwork. Y'all are gonna f**k around and kill the wrong dog someday......

To the OP, like others mentioned, get one of those plug-in anti bark things. Not sure how close they have to be to work on the neighbor's dog, but worth a try and pretty harmless.
One of the MANY downsides to living in the city

Good luck finding a place remote enough not to hear neighbor dogs. At our property, the nearest neighbor is 1/2 mile away. Unfortunately, they have a kennel full of dogs. Believe me, you hear them very clearly without the background noise of city life.

My thoughts exactly, but you and I seem to be the minority here. Nobody listens anymore. People are not like they used to be. It’s not the 1960’s on the farm. You don’t just kill “some ole dog”. Regardless of other’s views on it, many people now see their dog as a child, a family member. I know some think that’s just ridiculous, but it’s not your place to judge others.

All it takes is one unstable/upset/determined individual with a full magazine to end your life......don’t put yourself or your family in that type of danger. Only have yourself to blame.

Hunt In: My dreams this year
Default

Our closest neighbor is 1/4 mile away and they have dogs. Not particularly noisy, but once in awhile they'll get started because coyotes are howling or something. Those dogs barking isn't annoying, but they get my dogs barking which can keep us up. If we just walk outside with the bark collar, they shut up quick.
Speaking of folks not being like they used to be . . . When we moved out to the country (20+ years ago), I was meeting my neighbor across the barbed wire fence, an older man who has since passed. As we were talking, his two German Shepherds came onto my property and were chasing and barking at my cows. To me, it was 'dogs will be dogs' - they aren't hurting anything. But my neighbor started yelling at them and got them back home. Then he told me: "If you ever have a problem with my dogs, shoot 'em. I can't tolerate a misbehaving dog."
Mr. Patty was no snowflake, RIP.
