    Maybe he's just barking mad ??!!?????

    Any updates, Bernie? I've had neighbors complain bitterly about my dogs barking on occasions where it is impossible that it's them.

    One night I was walking the dogs and stopped to talk to a family acquaintance (yep, an oldie). He lives in the court below my house. There were dogs barking in the distance and he told me it was 'those vicious bloody black bastards living up there' (indicating my house).

    When I demurred, he insisted he was right.

    So I explained it couldn't be, as the house he was pointing at is mine and those vicious bloody black bastards were the dogs he was currently patting.

    He didn't say much after that.

    On leash /off leash areas???? While I totaly respect signed areas where they are a national park or areas where there are people or children, if I find an area totaly void of humans i tend to let mine off leash. They dont bite, annoy anyone nor do they chase any wildlife )they are scared of them) they just follow me while Im walking.

    I find there are WAY to many fun police/ loud minority who believe every single area is for walkers only, no dogs, no bikes, no cars ....just walkers and they lobby hard to ensure this is happenning more and more .

    But in reality dog owners are a majority, as are those who like to ride bikes. So as long as I pickup the poop, and dont annoy anyone or anything, and its not a national park....we go walking!

    We had a cranky old bugger next door.
    Among other things he was a fire hazard and the local cops/energex/firemen
    refused to enter his property as he would threaten them.
    He crashed his truck into a tree last year and died instantly.
    I do not miss him at all.
    Sorry if I sound heartless.

    He he, lovely.

    On the same vein - I received a call on my mobile once about my dog barking at night. My neighbour (who rented from the same Real Estate had been onto them). I was standing in from of the shop listening to the RE Agent with my dog laying next to me on the lead. After her talk I said - do you know where I am? 'I assume Canberra', she said. 'Nope, Darwin'. 'Oh, so your dog is at home and barking because you aren't there'. 'No, my dog is next to me, we are on holidays - would you like me to send you a photo', I say. 'Oh, no that's fine. I will deal with her. ' Perfect.

    People can not demand respect, they have to earn it. Those grumpy and intolerant of others lifestyles, dont earn nor deserve the respect of others and are treated as such.
    Such is life...my ole pop used to say "live as you choose, dont do as others say you should,and do what makes you happy, as long as your actions do not harm nor interfere with others or anything"" I think of that often, especially when I see people harming others or ANIMALS FOR PERSONAL GAIN!

    I have friend who was regularily visited by her neighbour with major mental health problems - all the time, all the problems. Personally, while I get along with my neighbours, I don't tell them all my personal health problems on first meeting.

    If the guy is not sleeping because of his prostate - he needs medical help - not his neighbours. And many blokes avoid getting that help for themselves.

    Maybe it's different where neighbours live much further apart.

    Oh if we are having neighbour whinges I want in.

    I moved into my new place on Saturday afternoon. Have been leaving the dogs in the house in separate rooms with toys/food dispensing toys/water/beds etc. I have also been setting up my computer to voice record while I am out so I can check to make sure there are no barking issues.
    SUuday they were alone for 7 hours no dramas.
    Monday I went to work in the morning, came home for lunch they were fine no barking on the recorder, went back out and got home about 7 hours later, didn't get to check the recorder.
    Tuesday out for 10 hours at work checked the recording, nothing.
    When I walk out the back on Tuesday to let the girls out to toilet, the guy next door sticks his head over the fence (setting off a round of barking, which i can't blame them for, this guy who they don't know has his head over our fence). Anyways he tells me that my dogs were barking from 4pm - 9:15 pm the night before, I apologise, let him know I was in fact voice recording and that I will review the recording to see who it was and try to work out why it was happening.
    So I go in listen to the recording, there was about 3 minutes of barking between 4 - 5 pm. At about 5:20 the barking got pretty bad for around an hour and a half and then settled down a bit, I stopped listening as I could tell it was my older dog Keira barking. Came to the conclusion that she was barking as it had started to get dark and she isn't used to the noises in the area and she can be a bit noise phobic/reactive.
    SO I went around the the neighbours house and apologised again and explained why I thought the dog was barking and promised I will from now on leave a radio/tv and lights on when I have to be out at night time. Thanked him for coming to tell me and asked that they let me know if there are further issues. His wife makes a comment about in her opinion, the dogs were boredom barking. I assured her my dogs are left with a rotation of toys and food treats/dispensing toys and that I know the difference between my dogs boredom barking and alert barking.
    Asked if there had been any dramas that day (Tuesday), she said no and that she assumed I had taken the dogs with me because she has seen me take the dogs with me on other occasions. I told her that I hadn't they had been at home ALL day (10 hours) and that obviously there was no barking if she thought they were not there.

    Anyways the whole thing was all well and good, and I do appreciate that they came and told me but the entire time I was talking to them the husband had this smart ass smirk on his face and his responses to me and the attitude made it sound like my dogs had been barking for weeks on end and that I had done nothing about it. Which is not the case at all. And I was really reasonable about the whole thing, I was friendly and I offered an immediate solution to the problem, I still got smart ass attitude. I also didn't appreciate the wife's assumption that my dogs were boredom barking when they had been quiet during the day time for 3 days in a row and only barked when it started to get dark.
    On top of all of this I have been outside with my two and had their dog barking its head off at us for over 30 minutes straight, hear me whinging NO! Lets not even get into the other neighbourhood dogs who have on 2 occasions kept me awake for an hour or more at a time in the middle of the night.

    So anyways the whole thing stressed me out and I am feeling extra sensitive to the girls barking AT ALL now, which isn't fair, they are dogs and the odd bark isn't so bad and as I said the neighbours dog has barked consistently for ongoing periods of time as well. I didn't mention this though as I didn't want it to become nasty.

    Anywho, sorry for the thread hijack Bernie, I intended on making my own thread but seemed everyone was having neighbour whinges here LOL!
