I am really disappointed that the "Dog Silencer Pro" thing doesn't work. I am regularly woken up at 6:30 am by a couple of outdoor dogs across the way, but there are several houses closer to the dogs and I don't understand why those folks don't complain to the owners.

Many years ago our next door neighbor in a very small very close yard kept his dog out all night while he worked! The dog would keep us up half the night. That is when you fantasize about poisoning the dogs.

I believe Cabarrus County has a noise ordinance prohibiting excessive/aggravating barking etc. I would call to verify this with the county and ask them who you are supposed to call when the dogs bark. My guess is - the police dept. Then -every time the dogs bark for more than a few seconds - I would call the police.

I have a neighbor (behind me) that has a barking dog. I am always amazed that some people just don't seem to hear their dogs barking! Luckily, their dog is inside most of the time so I rarely have to listen to it. I sleep with my windows open when the weather is nice and last spring I did speak to them about their dog. Thank goodness they apologized and keep the dog inside most of the time.

Good luck!

Oh, they hear it. But they (the wife, especially, cause she is there all day) have allowed the situation to continue b/c it is feeding some underlying pathology in the household.

The dogs may be the mechanism that feeds her feelings of victimization.

Or maybe she just hates the dogs and is hoping someone will sue them so that her hubby is forced to get rid of them.

I had a fence company out today to see about putting up a fence. I plan to get 2 dogs and I hope they are barkers for the next door neighbors we had move in. My husband has been over there 4 times about the loud music. I am sorry about your situation. Some people have no respect for anyone. We've tried to be civil and that hasn't worked.

IMO the fact that these dogs are left outdoors in the heat and without shade smacks of animal abuse...call the police and report that as such...I dont agree with making MORE noise... or pepper spray or a big stick will help. This does nothing to improve the quality of life you've come to expect in your neighborhood.

the dogs are barking because they are bored, possibly scared, hungry and thirsty (and/or hot!!). A call to the Humane Society would also be appropriate.

Just to clarify, I meant pepper spray the owners not the dogs.... After rereading the thread I can see where someone would think I meant the dogs. They are like this because of bad owners.

Yes, that is the sad thing. We are all trying to figure out how to control the dogs, but the real culprits are the owners. Really irresponsible. Those dogs have to be miserable.

Here is another idea. Catch a possum and put it in a cage near the fence so the dogs will see it. They will then bark so much they will go horse .Place it there when the dogs are outside and the owners are trying to sleep.LOL
