We had a neighor across the street and down a few houses that just aquired a doberman pinscher. I don't like these dogs to begin with they scare me a little. Especially after seeing one kill a cat one time. Anyway this dog barks constantly when it's outside. Early in the morning. 12:30 at night. And the guy just sits outside with him and lets him bark. It's become most annoying. Not sure how the other neighbors feel we aren't close to them. I'm ready to file a complaint with our county. My husband is about to go ballistic. Our dog barked but when she started we brought her inside. Plus I don't think this dog is full grown and when it is will be able to sail over the fence that is in place. We have a lot of children in the neighborhood now and I worry about their safety now. It's like you could walk your dog instead and it wouldn't bark. I guess he's too lazy.

Bummer, drag. I'd file a complaint and my husband would have done it days ago. Why get your blood pressure up??? If it is like our city, animal control comes and stops in front of the house and counts per time the barks. I think if they have to come out a 2nd or 3rd time they are fined 150.00. Gotta get them in the pocketbook I think to make a difference. Oh...I suppose you could be neighborly and talk to him first but if you wrote this here you probably decided that is not a workable solution. Good luck!

most communities have noise laws that include barking dogs. I would call the police or sheriff's department and report the noise next time the dog barks. If they get enough calls, they will start issuing tickets to the owner.

My BFF had a problem with a neighbors German Shepard, she called animal control and the people started keeping it inside. She let that dog keep her up for over a month before she called, I think you should call right away.

Get a huge boom box and play rap music super loud every time the dog barks. Let the neighbors know what you are doing first and talk to them...maybe more will join in. Of course calling the "authorities " to see what options you have might be a first step. Some counties have no rules and cannot do anything.

I'd say something to the guy first. At least give him a chance to take responsibility. Then if he refuses, call the authorities. What an ass. I feel bad for the dog. Any animal that generates that kind of noise is frustrated and is being neglected either through not getting enough exercise and/or attention.

I think part of the reason this is pushing all my buttons is that he has a dog and I don't. I'm still not over losing Nicky in Jan. And I keep seeing all these people walking their dogs now since it's nice. Nicky was a barker as well but when she started and woudn't stop we took her inside.

I'll bet it makes you miss your Nicky even more when he lets his dog go on and on. Some dogs are vocal-our 14 yo terrier was so annoying as a pup and she drove us nuts. We somewhat solved the problem but I don't want to hijack the thread. How about if you walk down there when you here the barking and introduce yourself, talk about the noise and ask what he plans to do? If he doesn't control the situation, call Dog Control.

I agree with the poster that suggested you talk to the guy first, before posting a noise complaint.

Please remember that the owner, not the breed determines more about the dog. This could simply be a noisy, but nice dog.

Barking dogs drive me crazy!!!! Our once, nice quiet neighborhood sounds, like a kennel sometimes. I don't even go out in the yard because of the barking. I have to turn on a radio in the sewing room and the bedroom to block out the barking.
I agree with calling the law. I wouldn't approch the owner. If he is clueless enough not to keep the dog under control, he won't care what you say. I wish our animal control people could do more than "warn". Sometimes the warning is enough to scare the owners in to taking some responsibility for the animal. In the case of the fools across the street from us, this isn't so. I've had animal control out there 3 times and left them a signed note in their door. Even the neighbor next door to them(also has dogs)asked them to do something about their dog. It's the one that gets all the others started and it will bark if the wind is blowing or a blade of grass moves!

In our county, it's up to us to take the dog owner to court and have proof of the noise. Our county considers one bark a minute, for 10 minutes, court worthy.
