    I have a neighbour with a small Pomeranian X? that is constantly barking and getting out. Used to be a huge problem with our old dog as 'it' would get under the fence and our dog would try to kill it. We also now have a white border collie across the road which barks at everything that moves.
    Both extremely annoying but I wouldnt complain as I know other neighbours had and I would hate to be responsible for a dog getting pts.
    Its a sucky situation to be in, I think barking collars are a good idea. But how long have you lived there for?

    I personally think its great that our big mastiff barks. Our cars were broken into twice before we got diesel ( and we live in a nice area) he can see through the gate. Will bark at anyone who walks past, comes up the driveway etc.. he will not just bark for the fun of it. He barks at stupid times and i always get up to have a look and someone will be walking past etc... Our cars have since not been broken into and people think twice about coming up our driveway... i put up with the stupid o clock barking with peace of mind that hes doing what hes there for. Protecting our house.

    D&B I know what you mean.
    Never had cars broken into thankfully but when we were living in a high rental area but still a fairly nice area, we had a roommate.
    We had my girl Keira at the time she is a Bullmastiff X Ridgie, well she went ape sh**t at the fence one night, looked out side couldn't see anything but the next morning when Roomie went out to leave for work, found that the back triangle window of his car had been smashed, someone was obviously trying to break into it and got scared off, thought they would get caught when Keira went off at them.

    But constant barking is no good.

    People must have no time on there hands to waste their time going to the council to complain about a dog barking... do people have nothing better to do with their time? Go to the owner let them know the barking is keeping you awake or whatever reason he is annoying you and go from there... people are very peti.

    Its not as if someone complains and your dogs get taken straight away. You get sent a letter, a few actually before any action is taken. Ie fines ect

    People know when their dogs are barking too much YOU are a perfect example, your dog barks at anthing and to me your dog would warrent me ringing the council! Your dog is a pain in the @ss for anyone living around there!

    Just to note with two young kids, 40-50 hours work a week, 8 hours at the gym, one kid does dancing the other does baseball hubby does baseball and I play Oztag Oh and a pooch thrown in there that needs training. I DEFINATELY dont have too much time on my hands LMAO!

    I honestly cant stress enough how much of a pain it is when the little time I do spend relaxing at home there is a dog barking, constantly, at nothing.. GRRRR Or a neighbour that finds it appropriate to mow at 6am on a friggen Sunday!!

    Not every dog owner is approachable.

    Not every person owns a dog or even likes dogs.

    Also, some people have reasons for not talking with the owner directly, they may feel in intimidated, lack confidence, or simply be vindictive...Who knows..


    Council's have good reasons for rules and guidelines for barking dogs.

    No dog owner should think they are exempt from these rules and guidelines...

    Nor should they belittle or intimidate a neighbour who has a concern.

    If they feel your or anyone else's dogs are a problem, then they are entitled to seek advise and make a complaint if justified.
