Your Neighbors Barking Dog

Wednesday, March 30, 2016

dogbarkI’m a dog and cat lover, so a barking dog doesn’t usually bother me. Some people are bothered by barking dogs.A barking dog can be a minor annoyance or a major problem, depending on how near he is, how loud he is and what time of the day (or night) he’s barking.  In general a bark every now and then usually is not a problem. If the problem is more serious than that this and the dog is barking at night keeping you and your kids up, then I would first talk to your neighbor. Though this won’t always solve the problem, you may be pleasantly surprised. The dog’s owner may be unaware that he’s bothering you and may be able to take simple measures like getting a dog gate and confining him to another area of the yard or  maybe giving him more exercise and more dog toys to play with. Your neighbor may also  leave a radio or television on during the day so the dog isn’t so conscious of every sound coming from the next apartment. Talking is always my recommendation first. You really don’t want to get law enforcement involved as this can affect the poor dog. As sarcastic as this may sound, your next option may be to move. I’m an animal lover and we need to learn to deal with those that are not!
