My neighbors dog

I have fairly new neighbors and one of their 2 dogs is having a barking fit. It is driving me crazy because it makes my chow bark which makes Lilly bark and round and round we go where we stop nobody know. Wish I could remember their name I would call I am very tempted to go knock on their door.

I guess there is a fence between your property. So, maybe start spraying your neighbors dog with water, or shake a can filled with pennies at him. Maybe that will stop him.

Spray them with water. Michele, I love it! That's one way to get the point across, indeed! Sounds like something I would do when I snapped.

Funny you should write this thread, I am absolutely EXHAUSTED today, I have not slept a good night's sleep in THREE days and have had a SLEW of personal life 'drama' this week and I'm on the verge of a mental breakdown, and I finally hit good REM sleep about 6am this morning, and low and behold, my neighbor's dog starts barking like a freaking canine maniac, so of course, Gucci hears this and thinks the neighborhood is being invaded by aliens, or god knows what?... and SHE is ringing the bell frantically to get out, so I stumble to the door and go out with her, let her investigate the 'doggy barking drama' and come back in, dig through my First Aid Kit for something to make 'ear plugs' out of. CRAM little medical cloths in my ears and try to go back to sleep, but the 'makeshift' ear plugs only make the barking sound more 'bass' and low. I declare that "I hate my life" and go make some coffee.

Sure enough, as soon as have my first cup and have started to awaken..the dog shuts up. Murphy's Law and all that happy horse-sh*t.

Our neighbors dog one day barked 13 hours straight. It is a hunting dog named Charlie. I was outside re-doing my house and I swear he barked non-stop. I was about ready to lose my freaking mind. I wanted to throw it a bone,but only if I could hit it upside the head while doing it!

I vowed if it happened another day,I was calling the cops. Well,it did happen over and over again,and my husband wouldn't let me call the cops. Now it stays locked up in their house and I can hear it barking in there. Poor thing. I'm not sure if it even gets out to poop--but these people shouldn't be allowed to have a dog. I did suggest it needed a bark collar,and they acted like they had no clue why. I gave them a PetEdge catalog with it turned over to that page.

Kara, I said to use water. But I would probably get out the Binaca and give him a spray or two. I know my dogs just see the spray and stop barking, and I only sprayed them once.

Ugh, my next door neighbors have these American Eskimo dogs that bark a TON. When they went out of town once, they hired a dogsitter who was not there very much, so they barked from crazy boredom for hours. Several neighbors called the police and one woman from a block away came and knocked on our door! Animal Control came that evening and I heard this commotion - they were seizing the dogs and taking them with them until the owner returned.

My neighbor has tried those citronella spray bark collars, but he said they figured out how to bark through the collar - eventually, the collar will empty out!

I haven't called the police since my house is so noisy with my human boys...and somehow the barking doesn't really bug me that much, although I can see how it could make someone crazy. I am careful not to allow my dogs outside access when I'm not home, since Scout will bark at anything...

Oh Kara, that is such a funny story! Maybe a little familiar for me, but really funny when you say it, lmao.

I just do NOT tolerate barking dogs...

I believe it is rude and irresponsible.

I have had to call the police on a couple of neighbors....I will be the first one to offer to bring them in if they need to be or help in any way...BUT IT IS RUDE!!!

I am only talking non stop barking tho...All dogs bark at things!!!

We have the same situation with two of our neighbors' dogs, and it makes me crazy when Molly (AND Billy when he's here!) decide to join the chorus.

One night, as my hub and I sat here trying to remind sweet Molly that we don't tolerate barking, I jokingly whispered, "Molly...do a WHISPER WOOF...a WHISPER WOOF..."

Well, Molly is a little nosey busy-body, so she stopped barking so she could hear what I was whispering. Well, darn if that dog didn't start trying to WHISPER WOOF!

She tried SO hard, and she'd occasionally get out a real soft "Rrrrrruffff"...we were LOAO! So, now, when the ten-0'clock-PM Chorus begins, my hub and I are WHISPER WOOFING with The Mollster. I'm gonna' try to get her to do it at the playdate at Laurie's...it is a HOOT!

The people down the street from us had a husky (poor thing got backed over in the driveway and died) that used to yowl all day long with that scary husky noise.


***Holy smokes, I just noticed my post number. How on earth did that happen? I must be bored.
