at what point do barking dogs become unacceptable ? its ok now and again but when you are working outside all day it drives you mad , there are laws for cruelty to animals but it aint policed , most of these dogs in the villages dont get exercise or proper food and if they people fenced their animals properly they wouldnt need dogs . So much for peaceful village life
Thank goodness it's not just me, there are so many dog-lovers on here I though it was illegal to post anything detrimental about our canine friends!
I have a yappy little bar steward next door who on a good day dtarts barking after food around 7pm and finishes around midnight. That is a good day.
On a bad day it starts barking at 7 and continues until 3, 4, 5 or until it loses it's voice entirely. I have been out at 5am in snow to try and shut the beast up but the neighbours are entirely oblivious. Mind you they sleep at the fromt of their house it's my bedroom the things barks under.
Seriously does anyone know what one can do about this because at times it is gradually pushing me over the edge. Please don't recommend that I reason with my neighbours because that will just not work.
Is there any legal redress because in a month or so's time I shall be refunding all my sunmmer guests who come to me for a peaceful "get away from it all" holiday,
You could always try an ultrasonic device like this - inaudible to humans but not to dogs - there's quite a few different ones on the market. Your neighbour wouldn't even know which would avoid any confrontation and it doesn't harm the dogs, it just trains them not to bark because every time they bark they hear an annoying sound.

When I was a wee lad we lived next to a railway. Now trains were a lot noisier then than they are now, clanking along and blowing off steam, and whenever we had visiters they always asked how we put up with all this noise. The true answer was that we never heard the trains. They were just a background noise that was so familiar that we never noticed it.
The same applies to dogs barking in Bulgaria. When I first went there I noticed them, but now I don't. I would rather have dogs barking than some of the emergency services' sirens that now scream up and down the roads of England, adding to the perpetual din of traffic. I am sure that these sirens are louder than they used to be, but that's another story, and is just one of many reasons why I prefer Bulgaria.
I believe that people in the villages of England now object to roosters crowing and that there are bylaws to prevent this. It's a funny world we live in.
I know exactly what is happening in the street if I listen which dog is barking in which way .. Can be usefull too.
But next movie shows it could be a lot worse!
(It's all Dutch but the video speaks for itself. The man who lives there is complaining the fast train will be coming at the end of his garden and he will have noise pollution of that)
