Do you have a personal vendetta against dogs? I see you posting all over the place about barking dogs, just bringing it up for no reason. Its like an answer to a question that no one asked.

You hate dogs, we get it. Move somewhere else.

No, not against dogs, just against bad owners.

No, the barkings dogs in Lubbock is like no place else Ive ever been. When we would go for a walk it was like we could hear barking dogs at every third house. Our house was surrounded by neighbors barking dogs. Some days, I would take my bike to drop the mail in the PO box. I had to go down an alley to get the. Every house on that street had a barking dog on the back yard. It was funny to set them all barking at the same time. For the life of me, I cannot understand people wanting to own a little barking machine.

I talked to by brother who owns dogs in Lubbock. People there don't walk their dogs or take them to the single dog park in town, so they just sit in the back yard with a bunch of boredom and pent-up energy. I can see where barking is more of a problem there and other places that don’t have a culture of being active.

W92 could be correct. We had very few dog walkers in Lbk. We walked but were "weird" because we did. We see far more people walking their dogs being around more old people.

I just spent a week in Lubbock and I didn't notice a lot of barking dogs. Perhaps you are just unlucky in your location. Once in awhile I could hear a dog barking for a few minutes off in the distance, and about half the time that would set my son's two dogs off for about 30 seconds worth of barking back - inside the house mostly.

My son and DIL DO walk their dogs regularly. No one seems to think it is weird.

This is not a Lubbock "thing".

Default One experience does not an expert make

One experience or one point of view or one street or neighborhood can't be enough to know if something is a Lubbock "thing" or not. It would be easier to classify your experience as a single event than as sure-fire knowledge. I tend to take everybody's point of view into consideration and even then, I reserve judgement. I've heard lots of folks complain about barking dogs in Lubbock. My neighbor's dog barked all night long. The owners seeed to not hear it. If they did, they wouldn't have ever slept. Like me. If I said something about it to them, they'd probably say that I'm just being a gripe...why?....because they never heard it. They blocked it out. So about complaints on barking dogs, I think it's better just realizing that people have different levels of tolerances for noise. Just like for everything else in the world.

Yeah, don't care. It is not a Lubbock "thing". As in "it happens all over Lubbock". Which was the OPs insinuation. It patently does not. Actual factual, not wishful thinking on your part.

And if a neighbor's dog "barks all night", call the cops. There are noise ordinances. They enforce them. Same as the rest of the country.
