Thread: Formal Complaint About Barking

    And I will add in another this is what we pay our rates for.
    They can deal with it and yep some owners are not people you want to tangle with.
    In my case this isn't that case, but it sure could be.
    So it isn't as clear cut as go tell the neighbour that his dog is barking.
    This is going to be another one of these threads I think.
    Someone with a view and won't budge from it even when they know they have been pointed in all the right directions.

    I just had a friend commenting today that she is exhausted because her neighbour's dogs bark non-stop at night and she cannot sleep. She has gone and talked to them 5 times already. Even offered some solutions, like moving the run to the other side of the block, but no change whatsoever. It wakes up her kids too and has been going on for months.

    So she finally reluctantly complained to the council and they told her they will put her on the waiting list for mediation. Could take months.

    I would say she had done all she could to resolve it in a nice way and her neighbour is showing no regard for her at all.

    I know that my 4 would never be tolerated in a suburban setting, in fact I would not have their breed there anyway.

    Mine bark a LOT. I am so glad that it is only us that it bothers on the farm. I put in ear plugs and hubby sleeps through it.

    I would be going demented trying to stop mine if I had neighbours close by.
    I am not gloating...just bloody thankful.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    I wonder if friend could get neighbours phone number and ring them up when the dog goes off at 3am. I used to do something like that. Sometimes I'd wait till 6am when I had to get up to do what I was doing that day.

    If you are up due to the barking I think if you had their number it would only be fair to wake them to.
    But not if these people are the aggressive type, you know like say a Pitt bull.
    Sorry about that different thread.
    Now back to it. Yer but if the people are not the kind you want to mess with say they might start to harrass you then don't do it.
    I know my neighbour and if I didn't i would not say a word to him as he can get quite arragant and its his way or no way thing.

    Obviously you did not read my post because i said my dog knows when to bark and when not to bark. he barks at people approaching his territory that he is unsure of. He does not sit there and bark at every noise he hears. Read things before you call peoples dog a pain in the arse.

    Aimed at bulldog lover who quoted my comment saying my dog is a pain in the arse and warrants calling the council.

    I live in a house with a mixed bag of dogs.

    My dog who will only bark if someone he doesn't know approaches the house. He lets off two very menacing sounding barks and returns to heel at my side.

    One of the three of my housemates dogs will bark at anything. Including, but not limited to, bats, cats, frogs, strong wind, trees moving and people he can see or hear. He is a pain in the arse that we're working on getting better.

    Dog two of my housemates three has a habit of barking at 3am. He is also a pain in the arse, but we now crate him which serves to curb that habit.

    Dog three is a follower. If any of the other dogs bark he will too, for the same duration as they do, most of the time he has no idea what he's barking at and doesn't seem to care. He's worse than the others IMO.

    We live on a large block just off a busy street. Our dogs cannot be heard by our neighbours unless they are in the backyard or our front door is open. Even then it's only our closest neighbours who can hear it and they pay attention when Batty barks. He's helped two of our neighbours prevent being robbed in the last two months.

    I just had another talk with our neighbour about their escaping/yapping Pom.. whose name I have found out is Peanut.
    They were full of:

    'oh but the fence is secure he cant have got out'
    'oh he only barks at strangers'
    'oh he's not a menace look how tiny he is'

    No obviously your fence is not secure as he is always out on the road.
    No he barks at everything and nothing.. all the time.
    And I'm not scared of him I just want to kill him when he wakes me up every morning at 4am.

    This is an example of how unapproachable some neighbours are, not in an aggressive way but in an 'my dog is perfect, im in denial' kinda way.
    Its extremely frustrating and is making me rethink my council approach..

    Note: I also dont have too much time on my hands as I'm at uni and work both full time
